I recently took the Fascination Advantage Assessment and found out I am a Maverick Leader. I feel this fits very well with my personality. Here is the description:

“HIGHEST AND BEST VALUE” OF THE MAVERICK LEADER

WHAT IS NOT THE “HIGHEST AND BEST VALUE” OF THE MAVERICK LEADER?

TOP 5 SPECIALTY ADJECTIVES

PIONEERING
Always ready to challenge the familiar path, Maverick Leaders seek to discover new ways to attain goals. In large companies you’ll find them coming up with ideas for new product features, alternative business directions, and radical marketing campaigns.
IRREVERENT
Their revolutionary thinking is coupled with a strong confidence and focus on attaining goals. They don’t propose new designs only because they enjoy new things (although they do love it of course!), they’re also keen to use their fresh ideas to help achieve the company’s goals.
ENTREPRENEURIAL
They are full of new ideas. They enjoy starting projects; and their energy drives them to implement ideas and complete projects.
ARTFUL
Clever and charming in professional and social scenarios, Maverick Leaders respond to questions and detractions with sharp humor. Even in a rather formal interview setting, they’re able to break the ice with a funny remark.
DRAMATIC
Maverick Leaders present their ideas vividly. They energize their message and keep their audience intrigued. When presenting, they use strong body language. They use energetic gestures to emphasize their points. They walk around the stage or board room. Their unusual stories and metaphors keep their listeners captivated.
