- Guardian: Guardians prefer concrete reality and are particularly skilled at providing structure and minimizing risk. As such, they can be reluctant to pursue unproven ideas and often deliberate thoroughly before making decisions.

- Integrator: Integrators are masters of empathy and nuance, and are particularly skilled at understanding the broader context of an issue. As such, they often take time to consider everyone’s opinions and socialize an approach before moving forward.

Business Chemistry Assessment

  1. 1. Business Chemistry Results Report Customized and prepared for Nam Vu June 18, 2015 ®
  2. 2. While relationship chemistry is often described in poetic and almost mystical terms, there is actually a great deal of hard science that lies beneath it. Designed for use in a business context, Business Chemistry is a system developed by researchers from the fields of neuro-anthropology and genetics that draws upon the latest biological research and statistical analysis technology. In contrast to many other personality systems, Business Chemistry explicitly focuses on observable, business-relevant characteristics and their implications within a business setting. The science behind Business ChemistryBusiness ChemistryBusiness ChemistryBusiness Chemistry  reveals four dominant patterns of human behavior, each with a constellation of traits that are statistically correlated with one another. Most people naturally exhibit behaviors and preferences that strongly align with one, or sometimes two, of these patterns. We call these patterns the Driver, the Pioneer, the Integrator, and the Guardian.
