Problem solvers clear misunderstandings

They do not want to get engaged in misunderstanding for a long time. Most chaos occurs because of the miscommunication and people’s way of thinking they are always right. Problem solver don’t try to be always right, they try to be clear. This skill makes them closer to the people around them and assign responsibilities effectively. This makes them a true leader.

These kind of people do not waste a single bit of energy. They save their energy like money in their bank. They get rid of negative vibe and narcissism as quickly as possible and invest their energy on positive vibes only. They know how to be positive even in a negative situation. This saves their quality time and improves their productivity.

Understand the root of the problem

They believe quick fix is not effective for a long term, so they go depth and find the root of the problem, define it clearly, find the cause of the problem, ask themselves how and why the problem arose and then find all the possible solutions. This makes them think critically and creatively.


Trial and error is their key to the success

They are not perfectionist. They believe everybody makes mistake and a smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again. Thinking of a solution but not applying the same can be stupidity. Problem solver keeps trying even if they fail, which makes them dedicated and efficient.

Practice and solution oriented

Problem solver do not overwhelm or react thinking about the future when problem occurs. Instead they focus on present and starts thinking out of the box. They practice the same for any kind of circumstances.

“Do not blame the world. Find a solution” – Sri Chinmoy

Like an African proverb – If you are not a part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem, focus

on solving problems and not creating one. Somehow if you create one, do not worry but try your best to solve it.

If the above points matches with your character then look at the mirror and tell yourself – “You are Awesome”.
