Caregivers approach things according to how they feel about them, or how things fit in into their personal value system. Their secondary modis operandi is to use their five senses in a literal, concrete fashion. A shining example is my Minister who adores using object lessons. Caregivers have a special knack for pulling out the best from others. They make others feel good about themselves. They are strongly supportive and dependable.

Following his deep personal belief that people have the potential to be the best they can be, “The Rock” works with exceptional everyday men and women to push themselves in extreme tests of strength, endurance and mental fortitude. “The Titan Games” is currently offered Thursdays on NBC.
Playing superheroes, military warriors and loving dads on film and starring in the latest Fast and Furious movie, Dwayne Johnson, a former professional wrestler, also made it a life point to care for his mom through stage 3 and 4 lung cancer.
Caregivers are people persons – they love people. They are warmly interested in them. They use their sensing and characteristics to gather specific information about others, turning it into supportive judgments. They are extremely good at reading others, and understanding their points of view. Caregivers themselves have strong desire to be liked and for their worlds to be pleasant.
Caregivers handle their responsibilities very seriously.
They are always thought of highly dependable. They value security and stability. They’re aware before others of what needs to be done. Then make sure that it gets done right. They enjoy these of tasks, and are extremely good at them. Tag a Caregiver for a management position.
Caregivers need approval from others to feel good about themselves. They harbor a strong need to be liked. They are hurt by indifference and don’t understand unkindness. They want to be appreciated for who they are, and what they give.
They’re very sensitive to others, and freely give practical advice, though sometimes have a hard time seeing or accepting a difficult truth about someone they care about.
These people often change their own manner to be more pleasing to whoever they’re with at the time. All Caregivers have a natural tendency to want to control their environment. Their dominant function demands structure and organization, and seeks closure.
At their worst Caregivers should be careful about controling people who do not wish to be controlled. Think of the bossy nurse!
They respect and believe in the laws and rules of authority, and believe that others should as well. They’re traditional, and prefer to do things in established ways, rather than venturing into unexplored territory. This is due their need for security. And it could cause them to blindly accept rules without questioning or understanding or to imagine bad intentions where there were’t any.
At their best, Caregivers are warm, sympathetic, helpful, cooperative, tactful, down-to-earth, practical, thorough, consistent, organized, enthusiastic, and energetic. They seek stable lives that are rich in contacts with friends and family.
