I'm an Explorer


As an explorer, you’re the person people turn to to plan how they’re going to get to where they need to be. You always start with the big picture and plan the most effective and efficient way to get there. You’re innovative and enjoy challenging the status-quo, and can shut out the noise to think things through and experiment with new ideas, but your eyes are always on the end goal.
