Explore your Ponder Cluster Profile

Guardian

As your Guardian profile is in the lower range (that’s ok), you might not prioritise working in health and wellbeing above other areas. This could be a sign that you prefer roles where you don’t need to support people in maintaining their health and wellbeing.

Linker

Your Linker profile suggests that you can help people find solutions to problems, but that you may prefer it when this is just a part of the work you do and not the main activity.

Coordinator

You are likely not a strong Coordinator (which is ok), which means that you may prefer it when you aren’t required to organise schedules or manage big projects. You might prefer to be the person who is doing the work, while letting someone else manage all of the coordination.

Informer

As your Informer profile is in the strong range, you may enjoy learning a lot about one or two particular areas and be good at applying your skills and knowledge to solve problems.

It’s likely that you enjoy sharing your knowledge by conducting research, advising others, or through teaching about your key areas.

Maker

People with a lower Maker profile may not be interested in completing repetitive tasks using equipment and technology (which is totally ok). All this means is that you might prefer to use your strengths from the other clusters in your work instead. 

 

Innovator

You scored ‘average’ for Innovator, which means that you can design solutions and use technology, but prefer to do this as part of a wider project while also using tasks and skills from other Clusters.
