DIRECTOR TALENT

(Also known as Direct Wealth BaZi Profile)

GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS

Director Talent belongs to WEALTH Character Component, together with Pioneer, its counterpart.

For Directors, it’s all about control, a hands-on approach, whether that’s company management or just weekend family trip. They have a habit of taking charge, especially if they notice that the situation is going out of hands and action is needed, they will be first to react.

They make quick decisions and move swiftly through tasks and providing orders to others. Directors are reliable, responsible, straightforward and very result-driven.

When balanced, Directors are morally heroic people, ready to make sacrifices for the greater good. They live a life based on principles and ethical codes.

Managing money and wealth is their second nature. They love the idea of saving money now to enjoy later, although this mindset might sometimes make them rigid and inflexible when it comes to spending and investing money into things which do not provide direct financial or material benefit.

Efficiency is their main concern, and they expect everybody around them to follow that mindset.

Relationships and emotional connection with people are not their primary strength, so sometimes they might come across as too bossy and cold, focusing too much on tasks and efficiency, neglecting emotional needs of their peers.

Control is their primary way of life, so naturally, they do not enjoy when somebody else controls them. Balanced Director Talents are best in some leadership role, where tight control and day to day management is needed; therefore some of the worlds top CEOs have Director Talent in their charts.

When Director Talent is excessive and out of control, they might have problems with excessive sex drive, and too much focus on money and material, which can bring a lot of frustration to them.

Also, when out of balance, they tend to micro-manage everything, which will drive everybody around them crazy and lead them to exhaustion.

CHARACTER TRAITS AND PROFESSIONS

Below are few key character traits and professions which are related to the Director Talent, accompanied with real-life examples from famous people so that you can get a better idea of its unique characteristics.

NATURAL BORN MANAGERS

When a person has a healthy and balanced Director Talent, they will show traits of excellent managers and CEOs.

Some of the world’s top CEOs have this Talent solid in their charts, like for example Tim Cook (Apple), Steve Ballmer (Microsoft), Jack Welch (General Electric), Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Satya Nadella (Microsoft) and Travis Kalanick (Uber).

You have to agree, the list is impressive, these companies are top of the top, and we can ensure you that there are many others in Fortune top 100 with this particular Talent.

A lot of movie actors with strong Director Talent, like for example Ben Affleck, often end up behind the camera, in the role of a movie director, due to their need to have things under control.

Director Talent is also often seen in sports coaches, like for example Louis van Gaal, or Jürgen Klopp.

Politicians with strong Director Talent can have an excessive orthodox and conservative style when running the country; a good example is Turkish president Erdogan.

SPORT LEADERS

Generally speaking, there are not many world famous people with Director as their main Talent, mostly because these type of people are concentrated in not so glamorous corporate world, or behind the camera, or on the side of the football pitch, telling others what to do. But in our research, we noticed that a lot of top basketball players are Director Talents, like for example James LeBron, Kobe Bryant, and Michael Jordan.

Directors are outstanding in managing small teams, with the hands-on approach. In basketball, players are very close to each other, continuously communicating during the entire game, so this kind of leadership is very suitable.

In football, or soccer, players are far from each other, due to a size of the field, communication is minimalistic, so they have to stick to the game plan given to them by the coach.

It’s a small difference, but it shows us how every single sport requires a different set of talents.

MICROMANAGERS

When Director Talent is excessive, and out of control, a person might spend a lot of time micromanaging other people and situation, stifling the creativity of their team members, and probably exhausting themselves on the way.

Because Directors are so focused on control and they take in the count only logical, seeing-is-believing concepts, they are often unable to trust that things might develop in the right direction even without their direct influence. They radically overestimate their abilities and underestimate everyone else, which can result in a chaos among his team or family members.

DIRECTORS ARE MOTIVATED BY:

  • The need to have a powerful sense of mission
  • Seeing themselves as the arbiters of logic and reason
  • Having deep convictions about right and wrong
  • Striving always to improve everything
  • Seeing life as a work-in-progress

DEMOTIVATED BY:

  • Being proven wrong
  • Having made mistakes
  • Being perceived as lazy or ineffectual
  • Living or working in chaotic environment
  • Being embarrassed by overt emotional displays
