People learn to “brake” when things go wrong when exploring.

A toddler’s finger will only touch the candle flame on the birthday cake once, and if they fall in a corner later when cycling, they will brake faster at the next corner.

“Braking” means avoiding or preventing unpleasant experiences. As a result, people look for certainties and develop a preference for familiar environments and familiar ways of working, among other things.

The higher the score on “braking”, the more people are concerned about the good course of events and the more careful they become. They are naturally cautious about possible problems and unpleasant situations. They look for predictability and prefer to operate in a familiar environment. They work best when they are given clear guidelines and when there is order and structure.

Job options; All functions in which alertness, care, precision, accuracy, correctness, control, loyalty… are important. They perform best within familiar environments that are well structured, with great job security and clear rules. This can be in government, but also as a hairdresser, treasurer, cook or as a creator of algorithms.

The lower the score on “braking”, the less people worry about tomorrow. They don’t easily care to a mistake more or less. Those who have a low score have little need for certainty or guidelines and also attach less importance to what is known or a daily routine. These people are therefore more likely to lose interest/attention to tasks that are well known.

Job options; It is better not to have jobs where the finishing touches have to be made, where neglecting details can have dramatic consequences or where the work is too boring. They perform better when tasks need to be carried out at a fast pace or environments where there are no strict regulations and small mistakes are tolerated, such as in young, enterprising and/or uncritical environments….
