Hi, my name is Yanen, and I'm an Arranger. I'm a person who enjoys managing different variables, aligning and realigning them to get the most productive configuration possible.
Being an Arranger is about organizing and allocating things and people to get the best outcome. I get excited when I see the strengths and talents in my peers. I'm then able to use their strengths in a way that's beneficial for the whole group. I enjoy moving things around to find the best way to get the job done. I think that being an Arranger is unique because you're dealing with a multitude of factors and variables.
For me, my Arranger comes into play most prominently when I want to find the most efficient way of getting things done. In my interactions with people, I see their strengths and place them in positions that will make everyone feel valued. In group projects, my Arranger theme comes out when I'm allocating tasks to my group members. I identify what people are good at and allocate tasks according to their strengths. This ultimately benefits both the individual and the group.
I remember a time when my friends and I were organizing a trip together. One of my friends is very good at recognizing details, so I asked her to research the addresses and the directions to the places that we were going. Another friend has an interest in food, and I got her to source out the best food places in the country.
I also use my Arranger theme to arrange group meetings. I enjoy looking through everyone's timetables in order to find the best time for everyone to meet. Some people might find this coordinating work troublesome, but I enjoy it. It's important to find the best timing to meet so that the required tasks can be completed.
Sometimes, people might find me rigid because of how I insist on organizing everything. However, I want to convey to others that I want to bring out the best of them. Overall, you can count on me to find a configuration that greatly maximizes both resources and people.
