The Advocate Archetype
The Advocate is a people-person that is both helpful and inquisitive. Advocates like to spend time mulling over ideas but also make nurturing relationships one of their top priorities. They have a knack for uncovering facts and conducting research, and while for some this means working solo, the Advocate likes fostering a sense of community.
Things they're good at
The Advocate is friendly, generous, and confident, and prefers work where they have the opportunity to motivate others. They are natural leaders, ideal for roles such as directors, representatives, or managers. They are great with people and enjoy work where they can cultivate lively conversation, make plans for groups of people, and educate others. They are ideal for the role of initiating, organizing, and supervising activities.
Things they can watch out for
The Advocate’s aptitude for team work, mediation, and their overall empathetic disposition can sometimes hinder their ability to work independently. They are at their best when there is a team of people that they can discuss ideas with. They can feel unfulfilled when they don't have the opportunity to use their natural tendency for educating and persuading others. They also tend to dislike times when they must physically exert themselves or perform athletically.
