I feel like the traits I see in other people who farm are overwhelmingly the driver type

I’m about 50% amiable, 30% Driver, and 10% of each of the other 2. When I’m not tired anyway🤪
I'm about 50/50 Analytical/Amiable... *thumbsup*

Easy to get along with as long as people concede I'm always right. :lol:

I'm 100% analytical both IRL and in game. Heck, I'll spend a real week worrying about which mower to buy in game.

I'm like half driver and half amiable. It depends what is going on the farm. Taking care of animals is more amiable.

I wouldn’t say backwards (because I don’t believe people could even be grouped into 20 types of personalities) but just if I had to jam them into a category I would say determination, strong willed, focused on results, and most importantly purposeful would be the top ones I would pick off those lists. 🤷‍♂️ Just my observations though. I’m also a northerner and my wife is from the south and her family and friends often comment how weird we are (people they meet when they visit) because were in such a hurry to the point we’re nearly rude. So I dunno I think cultural things play heavily into how you’re perceived or how you perceive yourself as well.

This exactly, and you can go from caring for something to putting it into the freezer in a day because it’s funny limp isn’t gonna pull the same price at the auction as the healthy steers.

I have no idea what this even means. Can you explain a little bit, so my tiny dinosaur brain can comprehend? I want to play, but I don't want to pick the wrong one.

Seems like a thread that should be in the off topic section of the forums

I based my prediction on YT videos of American farmers with huge projects and a lot of people cooperating to get them done. Many times a neighbor farmer is helping. Many times someone may be in a position that could kill them if someone else f's up. I see a ton of amiable aspects in these videos. But I do accept your findings *thumbsup*

We are discussing an aspect of farming; either real or virtual. How exactly is that off topic?

It really depends what's going on. Yes, farmers help each other out and work together. Also, there needs to be direction and leadership to tackle a project and get stuff done. That person would be a driver. Like for marketing, I let my brother take the lead. Livestock, I take control. Anther example, Zach Johnson tells his dad and hired man what to do, but then can take their opinion on a matter.

I'm really just curious how people self-identify.
