Astute Logicians are grounded in reality and are known for their unique perspectives and vigorous intellect. They always approach a problem methodically and with a clear logical rationale.  Expert analysis and science feed their analytical decision-making.

Astute logicians can often be annoyed by those who don’t see the world as it is. Yes, while the world would be better if we could achieve certain dreams, it is not always practical.

It can be hard for this personality type to engage in politics when the majority of the discussion revolves around feelings and impracticality. While they strive for the general good for everyone, Astute Logicians feel that all decisions must be made methodically and logically.

Your Ideal Society

You thrive most in a world where political decisions are driven by science, logic, and reason — not emotions, religious traditions, or unfounded opinions. A world where scientists, professors, and various experts drive policies that not only benefit the greater good, but can balance both short and long-term tradeoffs. If there’s a world where we just optimize for the short-run, then we’ll risk long-term socio-economic health.

Ideally, politicians and political parties should focus on issues that are assessed with highly analytical, fact-based decision-making.  All of the political theater is draining for you to watch.  You just want the best decisions to be made by the best people, and for those people to be held accountable.

A pragmatic society is one that serves people the best, while balancing growth and scarce environmental resources.  While we should help those who need it, we should also reward those who work hard and play by the rules.  This means that society should prioritize funding for education, career-development programs, and scientific research.  For you, America’s global competitive advantage is its creative genius and entrepreneurialism.
