Hi, my name is Gideon and I have Deliberative as one of my Top 5 themes. For me, Deliberative is about thinking through situations before doing any sort of action or being careful with the way I do things. In other words, I think before I act.
In life, there are many risks and I prefer to live my life cautiously. My Deliberative theme has helped me to make major life decisions. I will think through these choices to make sure they're the best and optimal choices. I'll also ask others for their counsel and opinion to ensure the choice is a wise one.
My Deliberative theme has helped me in work and projects. Forecasting the worst case scenarios allows me and my team to plan contingencies for them. For example, when organizing camps, I tend to look at the small details in our plans and I'll suggest ways to plan for bad weather or ensure the safety of our participants.
My Deliberative theme affects the way I interact with people. I tend to be more selective in the praise that I give people and say only the words that I mean. When I meet new people, I tend to be more reserved and keep to myself due to my cautious nature. This gives people the impression that I'm unfriendly, but it's simply that I take time to open up.
Overall, my Deliberative theme helps me to be well-prepared for the things I do. You can count on the decisions I make for the team to be well-thought through.
