Picture of Manganum nitricum
Essence: they like to learn and to enjoy themselves.
Helping each other creates a sociable atmosphere
They like to work but the atmosphere has to be sociable. They can’t just work without play. They like to sing or have a bit of music while they work. They enjoy helping others out if they get into trouble, because they want everybody to have a good time at work.
Practising creates tension
They like to learn and practise, but not if there is pressure behind it. There has to be time for relaxation, a nice chat and a laugh. There also has to be time for a relaxing holiday every now and then.
Practising their assertiveness
They like to perform well, to show what they are worth, to show that they count. That is why they practise extra hard.
Criticism stops them from enjoying themselves
Because they want to be perfect in what they do, they tend to put pressure on themselves to be very precise. So on the one hand they want to be able to relax and on the other hand they want to make sure that they won’t be criticised. Criticism has to be constructive, otherwise they feel miserable. Compliments are very welcome: they enables them to really enjoy their work.
Helping from a sense of idealism
They tend to help others because they are idealistic. When they are having a good time they want to share it with others and they can do this by offering to help them.
