Freedom is your middle name, but there are few jobs working for someone else that allow you the latitude you crave. You know your ideas are matchless. You're a talented networker. You're a researcher par excellence.
Engaging and creative, you get your ideas across with ease. If you see "terra incognita" on a map, that's just where you'll go, but in a planned, not impulsive, way.
Objectivity is a definite plus here. You're self-reliant and comfortable flying solo, so the long hours are no problem, but working alone means you'll have to do all the boring tasks, which you will nail, too!
