Pearson Archetypal System

Realist

Realist

Realist individuals prioritize facing reality. They are most fulfilled when they anticipate problems, and thus avoid them, and when they belong to a group or team where everyone can rely on one another. Naturally empathetic, unpretentious, and resilient, they often demonstrate their common touch and can motivate others to try hard to do their best. They’re usually highly motivated when everyone needs to pitch in and solve a problem.

What you see or may not see: Realists are seen as being competent, doing practical tasks, helping others fit in, and getting people to work together and to solve problems generally of a physical or material kind. Inside, at the feeling level, Realists frequently feel orphaned by others or by life, often because of hard luck and difficulties of various kinds that have left them believing that they should not expect too much or else they would just be disappointed. This can lead to the development of great empathy for those in need or in trouble and a desire to be of help. It also results in the ability to face the facts as they are, even difficult ones.

Realist organizations often are very successful at providing a sense of belonging and human dignity to others; creating hard-working teams that take pride in their work; and fostering camaraderie among employees.

Realists need to be careful about playing the victim, developing undue pessimism, becoming cynical and negative, creating an “us vs. them” mentality, and being too protective of their own turf.

Subtypes include:
  • Orphan: The former PMAI name for this archetype; feels neglected or mistreated
  • Survivor: Knows how to survive hardship and be resilient
  • Egalitarian: Believes in the inherent worth and dignity of everyone
  • Whistle-blower: Has the courage to tell the truth about corruption and unlawful behavior
  • Communitarian: Seeks and builds community in all situations
  • Everyperson: Embodies an awareness of humankind’s shared vulnerabilities
  • Regular Guy/Gal: Is unpretentious, unassuming, relaxed, not out to impress
  • Buddy: Likes to be one of the gang and do ordinary things together
  • Contemplative: Seeks out strategies to calm and ease the primal reptilian brain’s survival fear and access deeper realities that provide a sense of safety
