You are a Joan — “I need to succeed”

Joans are energetic, optimistic, self-assured, and goal oriented.

How to Get Along with Me

  • * Leave me alone when I am doing my work.
  • * Give me honest, but not unduly critical or judgmental, feedback.
  • * Help me keep my environment harmonious and peaceful.
  • * Don’t burden me with negative emotions.
  • * Tell me you like being around me.
  • * Tell me when you’re proud of me or my accomplishments.

What I Like About Being a Joan

  • * being optimistic, friendly, and upbeat
  • * providing well for my family
  • * being able to recover quickly from setbacks and to charge ahead to the next challenge
  • * staying informed, knowing what’s going on
  • * being competent and able to get things to work efficiently
  • * being able to motivate people

What’s Hard About Being a Joan

  • * having to put up with inefficiency and incompetence
  • * the fear on not being — or of not being seen as — successful
  • * comparing myself to people who do things better
  • * struggling to hang on to my success
  • * putting on facades in order to impress people
  • * always being “on.” It’s exhausting.

Joans as Children Often

  • * work hard to receive appreciation for their accomplishments
  • * are well liked by other children and by adults
  • * are among the most capable and responsible children in their class or school
  • * are active in school government and clubs or are quietly busy working on their own projects
