Analyzers are typically introspective types, known for their brain power and intellect, carrying a reputation for being wise and knowledgeable.

They are also very interested in culture, history and have a sophisticated taste for various things.

Analyzers are very much interested in how the world works, and they can create large-scale theoretical models on various topics, from finances to health and education. Often Analyzers are involved in the stock market business and trading, because of their ability to discover and develop patterns.

They aim to get to the root of the matter, and for that, they need as much information possible.

Analyzers are pretty much opposite of Performers; they dislike anything flashy and attention-seeking.

They are elegant, refined, often singularly unique, imaginative and witty, with a high sense of aesthetics and sensibility.

Analyzers enjoy working alone, or in a small group of people united around the same goal, in a quiet, unobtrusive environment. They dislike big groups and crowds because it interferes with their thinking and reflection process.

But being too much of a thinking person, they can also be entirely impractical in a real world, and occasionally overly laid back.

They spend too much time analyzing their thoughts and emotions, which can lead to procrastination, laziness, and depression.
