Tell us a few things you know about the #6 BEIR. We're talking about such people as basketball's Michael Jordan, boxing's Mike Tyson, or soccer's Lionel Messi, baseball's Pete Rose, hockey's Wayne Gretzky, or last but not least, tennis' Martina Navratilova. One...
How often do you see an NBA owner slap a player? Really, when have you EVER seen that happen? Before a few weeks, we couldn't think of a single time. The Charlotte Hornets were playing the Detroit Pistons last week when Malik Monk (#13 FCIR) ran out onto the floor...
The action-oriented #6 BEIR is often a risk-taker in life and yet cautious in relationships—especially marriage. Being dominant Inanimates and avid realists does not help when taking the risky plunge into the untried waters of matrimony. When BEIRs do feel their hearts being tugged, action, rather than words, is chosen to express this sensation. This can especially frustrate Animate spouses who want love communicated verbally. “Extraverted” Front-brainers are often the love choice of the BEIR, yet they hesitate to enter the verbal communications seen as necessary by the more outgoing. If the Front-brained partner will give the BEIR time, he or she may find the BEIR very willing to talk, but simply waiting to be listened to. It will, however, require patience and an attentive ear. The BEIR male fits more easily into our society’s vision of maleness than the BEIR female fits into our stereotyped female. However, the reward is great when the BEIR lady is related to with acceptance for the independent, action-seeking, graceful person that she often is. Breaking through the protective shell of either male or female BEIR and finding the genuine article with all the gifts and positive attributes is a worthwhile endeavor. Share their many interests and adventures, and they will learn to trust you and open up and communicate.
Popular Career Choices:
Construction, mechanics, machine operation, racing, aviation, surgery, sculpting, securities trading, finance, law enforcement, criminal investigation. BEIRs are the masters of tools and machines.

Impersonal Observers not only can develop superior hand-eye coordination and manual dexterity, but they can have vice grips for hands if necessary. So too, the hawk can sink is talons into its prey or interests like no other.
Hawks see their prey long before their competitors. As they soar in the sky, their vision is phenomenal. In real life, this Brain Type group is made up of the majority of top pro quarterbacks, as well as many great point guards in basketball. The hawk’s vision and spatial logic is extraordinary, and in real life, as athletes or inspectors, their vision is keen. Little escapes their notice!
By nature, hawks are not very friendly, though they can be, through good nurturing and strong ethical or spiritual values. Good parenting of these Brain Types requires teaching them to value others while extending kindness—something you wouldn’t need to emphasize as much with a dove. Hawks are on the assertive side and will definitely defend their nests. They also love to use their Impersonal reasoning to navigate challenging situations.
Impersonal Observers are logical pragmatists in their vocations: they’re accountants, financial consultants, securities brokers, lawyers, athletes, surgeons, salespeople, law enforcers, and so on. They are rarely involved in highly conceptual or theoretical jobs.
