As an example it could guide the type of projects they set, how best they will motivate you, what type of relationship might come from you working with specific others, and how to manage you in a way to get that will get the best out of you.


“Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.”
