    You are reliable; people depend on you for stability. You’re the first person friends and family call to help plan/host gatherings and with life-admin related questions (reviewing contracts, obtaining health insurance, doing their taxes).  


    You ♥ administrative tasks. Working behind the scenes feels rewarding. Your day-to-day sense of accomplishment comes from checking off tasks and supporting a business, while a long-term sense of accomplishment comes from developing more effective processes.
