WOMBAT: Order, Certainty, Closure
Steady, conventional and respectful of established procedures are all characteristics of the Wombat. They are the most grounded of the types and are happiest when their knowledge and experience can be used in practical ways. They are very much the ‘doers’ in our society and love to belong to something greater than themselves where they can exercise their sense of duty. They like to have a schedule and clear instructions and timelines when undertaking new projects, as well as a list of outcomes and how they will be measured. They have excellent attention to detail and a responsible approach to life.
Wombats enjoy learning from experts and often have trouble in a disorganised setting. Punctuality is important to them, and changes to plans should be clearly explained because they don’t like inconsistencies. Wombats are patient and reliable, thorough and disciplined. Many of them will often put the needs of others before their own needs and can be highly valued community members.
At school, the Wombat is the student most likely to sit quietly in class, doing what the teacher asks, handing in work on time and setting a good example for the others. They are generally good team players and in business, they will usually be drawn to roles requiring attention to detail, accuracy and good organisation. As leaders, others derive comfort from the sense of security, dependability and strength they exude.
