Why working for others fulfills your own deepest needs...
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!
