The realist is the enemy of idealizations. He is able and used to stay in reality, and not in empty fantasies, fruitless dreams or fairy tales. In contrast to the idealist, who tends to constantly idealize reality, not to notice its negative sides, to show impracticality and isolation from the realities of life, the realist perceives the objects and phenomena of the surrounding world without any excess and redundancy. If he sees something that looks like a horse, neighs like a horse, and jumps like a horse, then he concludes that it is most likely a horse.
If the idealist is set not on what is, but on how it should be, the realist shows a position of perception, in which he looks at himself and the situation that has arisen as if from the outside, from the position of an unbiased and non-objective observer: "Nothing personal!"This is a calm view of the analyst, the ability to anticipate how others will react to your actions. This is the skill to see, first of all, the interests of the case, and not the emotional and sensual component.
The realist is a cleaner of excessive emotionality, the futile fantasy of the mind, subjectivity, prejudice, and partiality. The position of an outsider, a person from the audience, allows you to be in reality, and not in the world of destructive illusions and dreams. Realism allows you to build a strict, businesslike, objective approach to life, to level the subjectivity of personal perception, which, in turn, contributes to the adequacy of the worldview, helps to earn a good reputation, creates a favorable impression of yourself.
In contrast to the idealist, the realist is down-to-earth, pragmatic, and practical. He is not predisposed to believe in all sorts of nonsense. It is guided by real facts, and not by far-fetched images, ideas about how it should be. He does not like to hang in the clouds, adjusting the realities of life to his ideas about them. In other words, realism is the perception not of what" should be", but of what is. "Everything as it is!"- this is the slogan of realism.
Realists, as a rule, are characterized by activity, energy, and activity. They are difficult to place next to experiential personalities. A realist can be both an optimist and a pessimist. To solve production problems, it is useful to have two realists: one an optimist, the other a pessimist. Realists-both, but calculate two different possible, realistic alignment of the situation.
