Realistic individuals can be describes as “doers” that are independent and practical. They like to deal with things rather than people or ideas and prefer work environments that are structured with clear goals and concrete tasks. They enjoy work activities that involve being hands-on, such as tending to plants or animals, working with wood or tools, or work related to engineering and technology. Realistic work environments typically do not involve much paperwork or working with others, and often require working outside. Examples of realistic careers are carpenter, landscaper, electrician, or mechanic.
