People call me a perfectionist, but I’m not. I’m a rightest. I do something until it’s right.

Type Ones work best with open, outgoing and teams that they can stabilize. They must be aligned in their goals and values. Ones are related to best when their concerns are taken seriously and their integrity is respected. You must be responsible and honor your agreements with a One.

Ones work professionally best with others who need to be efficient and accurate, desire improvement and are dedicated to a bigger mission.

Romantically, Ones are honest and motivated partners. They need to be a partner to someone who is open-minded and more relaxed. Similar views in a relationship are also a must for a One. Ones communicate openly, always are trying to do what is right for their partner and pursuing personal growth to improve the relationship. Ones are not quick to forgive and have a hard time overlooking flaws.

HOW TO GET ALONG, LOVE and SUPPORT YOUR TYPE ONE:
