This section provides insight as to which practice areas and work settings might be the best fit for Nash. Better fits are shown higher on each list, and are based upon trait patterns of thousands of attorneys that described themselves as having high satisfaction levels with their practice and work settings in The Right Profile’s online Attorney Trait Study. To be clear, this section is not saying that Nash couldn’t be successful in lower ranked practice areas or settings. Our research suggests, however, that higher ranked practice areas and settings will feel more natural for her or him. This section also refers to various types of law and practice areas. There are numerous good sources on the internet that describe these practice areas and what attorneys in each of these practices tend to do. One we find particularly good can be found here.

Fit Rank scores how you compare to “happy attorneys” - those that report high career satisfaction levels in the following practice areas and work settings. “Fit” does not necessarily mean success for making partner, earnings, billing or client book of business. As we measure it here, it is about whether you will be happy in your role or how much stress and energy it will cost you to succeed. Each practice area shows a fit score from 0 to 100 and the relevant trait similarities that you exhibit with career satisfied attorneys in each area and setting. High fit scores will have similarities in multiple traits and lower fit scores will have fewer matches. Your Closest Match Traits may also be different than those of your friends, even where they may have similar scores for the same practice areas or settings, since it is based upon which of your trait intensities match closest with the overall trait patterns of the group profile for happy attorneys in that practice area or setting.
Fit 80-100: A score in this range is a tight fit, and you should naturally feel confident in these practice areas and settings. Although a high score does not necessarily guarantee a long and successful career, take heart in the fact that you share a similar mental makeup with those attorneys that have been most satisfied with the practice areas and settings where you match this score.
Fit 60-70: A score in this range is a good fit, and you should feel comfortable and energized in these practice areas and settings. Work may still feel like “work”, but according to our data, many attorneys have spent decades in practice with lower fit scores than this range.
Fit 40-50: A score in this range is a moderate fit. Although you do not match as tightly to these areas as those in the 60-100 range, this area may still be a decent fit for you, particularly if you have a prior experience or training in these practice areas.
Fit 20-30: A score in this range is a loose fit. Although you may be able to practice in these areas or settings for many years, it will probably never feel like a great fit or one that is particularly energizing. Like playing basketball in flip-flops, it may be tough to feel like you are truly reaching your full potential, even if you get a few baskets every once in awhile.
Fit 0-10: A score in this range is a challenging fit. Although you may be proficient at all mental aspects of the work and you may even stay in this role for a few years, these practice areas and settings will eventually sap your energy and exhaust your desire to return for another day of the same work or in the same setting.
These represent the most distinctive qualities that make Nash different from other attorneys.
Nash often seeks new experiences. He enjoys research and gaining a deeper understanding of the unfamiliar. This intellectual curiosity allows Nash to innovate and adapt to changes. Curiosity makes one's mind active instead of passive and can lead one down new paths. People with high curiosity tend to ask questions, search for new answers and rarely accept things as there are. They tend to ask about people and situations in order to learn more, even when there is not an obvious reason to do so. This tendency can help them identify problems or issues before they actually develop..
Nash exhibits strong abstract reasoning abilities. Abstraction is a subset of intelligence, and an important component in problem solving. Consequently, Nash is able to more easily understand and solve complex, multidimensional problems. A sophisticated legal practice would be a natural fit for him, but more mundane practice areas may become boring over time. Abstraction is also positively related to emotional intelligence, particularly in the workplace. This allows him to better handle the challenges of working in a large law firm environment -- where issues related to emotion are often highly complex and thus, may rely on strategic or complex, as opposed to simple or concrete solutions.
Nash is highly resilient and exhibits a strong ability to handle rejection and accept criticism. This is an excellent trait for a law firm associate or junior partner, as it allows one to endure the often rigorous demands of the job. It also helps a rainmaker cope with rejection and rebound from a 'no' to other potential work or pitches for another client.
Nash enjoys meeting new people. He particularly enjoys the thrill of advancing personal relationships, such as turning a stranger into a friend, or a contact into a customer. He is motivated to hone the skills necessary to effectively communicate and collaborate with others. This desire allows him to develop multiple personal and professional relationships. Nash enjoys spending time and working with others, and can relate well working in both one-on-one and group situations. Business development comes naturally to him and will occur often as he goes about his daily life.
Nash looks at situations with an open mind, considering both the positive and negative aspects of an issue or transaction before deciding upon a course of action. His tendency to have no predisposition for being optimistic or pessimistic leads to a well-balanced approach to client situations. He tends to be somewhat skeptical, particularly when considering the motives of opposing parties/counsel. This is an important trait for making informed judgments in client situations.
Nash often seek new experiences. He rarely accept things 'as is' and instead tends to inquire further into people or situations to learn more. This activity can help identify problems or issues before they actually develop or appear. When approaching problems or situations, his first instinct is to follow a concrete, practical path whenever available. However, he is also capable of finding creative solutions when conventional tactics may fail. Nash is comfortable taking calculated chances or trying new approaches when the cost / benefit analysis is favorable.
Nash exhibits a strong ability to understand and solve complex, multidimensional problems. When he is first confronted with them, he can understand the complex concepts presented and then refine them into more concrete concepts for taking action. Nash, however, may find boredom in solving simpler, concrete problems. He appreciates the importance of using logic in most situations, but is comfortable utilizing subjective reasoning and impassioned arguments when needed.
Nash performs well as a teammate but can also step away from the group and continue to perform well on his own. Nash works well with a group or in a group setting --particularly for solving problems. He will tend to seek advice from others or form a consensus before settling on a solution to a problem.
Nash is able to get the job done with minimal input but will not resist direction or guidance. Nash believes task should be completed NOW and has an urgent desire to get things done. He successfully juggles multiple tasks at once.
Nash enjoys the challenge of convincing others but will allow them to maintain their point of view. He does not necessarily need to believe in the arguments he makes, but it helps. Nash is capable of intellectually appreciating another person's experience, but is less adept at genuinely connecting with another's experience emotionally. He may not recognize more subtle aspects of communication.
Nash frequently sets goals for planning purposes or for measuring personal or organizational success. For him, goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about the future, and for motivating himself to turn this vision of the future into reality. Multiple studies have shown that goal-setting has been found to be common among highly successful people. He is self-confident and able to take action without looking for validation from others. Nash exhibits a strong ability to handle rejection and accept criticism.
Nash frequently takes initiative on tasks without requiring instruction or supervision of others. A lawyer with strengths in this area will frequently recognize the need to complete a task, develop a plan for completing the task, and begin executing towards completion of the task, all on one's own. He tends to persevere through difficult circumstances in life and career. This is an important trait in the practice of law and especially for working in the large law firm environment.
Nash's preference is to 'blend in' with the group. However he can 'turn it on' when required to command a room or conversation with energy and attitude. Nash is capable of recognizing and understanding another's experience but does not always leave them with a genuine sense of having been understood. He can adjust his behavior based on the interpersonal situation but this requires a conscious effort.
Nash demonstrates both the ability and desire to cultivate new relationships. He relates well in both one-on-one and group situations. He particularly enjoys the thrill of advancing personal relationships, such as turning a stranger into a friend, or a contact into a customer. He is motivated to hone the skills necessary to effectively communicate and collaborate with others. This desire allows him to develop multiple personal and professional relationships. Nash enjoys spending time and working with others, and can relate well working in both one-on-one and group situations. Business development comes naturally to him and will occur often as he goes about his daily life. Although Nash listens to others and may pick up the facts in a conversation, he may miss the subtleties and may be inclined to fill in any gaps with his own assumptions.
Both ends of each trait can be good, lower is not worse. Legal Traits are the traits from the Champions Assessment correlated with success in the business and practice of law.

(This is where Nash starts when interacting with the world. The Primary or Dominant behavior.)
Nash uses brainstorming, a verbal questioning to identify patterns that provide insight. If Nash looks to Invent as his go-to behavior for gathering information, he prefers seeking answers through brainstorming, identifying patterns and innovation. Nash looks outside the box for answers, seeking something new.
(If the primary behavior is not enough then this is where Nash goes for answers)
Nash uses an internal, logic-based decision-making process that focuses on what is correct or incorrect. Nash looks inside before making decisions, using his mind to create order, to organize and categorize information, identify anomalies, deduce probabilities and understand how things work.
These boxes represent the eight different introverted and extraverted mental functions defined by Carl Jung that determine your personality type of ENTP (eg. MBTI). We refer to them as Go-To boxes.
You use all eight Go-To boxes but we expect that you find certain ones easy and fun and others slow and tough.
Think of the box size as telling you how natural you are likely to find activities related to that mental function. The smaller the box, the more energy it will likely take you to do any related activities. The bigger the box, the more likely you are to get energy from doing related activities.
The largest box is your largest function or Superpower.
The boxes above the line are what other people see - they are extraverted. The boxes below the line are introverted and are below the surface.
If your main go-to box is introverted, your most commonly used mental function is invisible to others. If your main go-to box is extraverted, others cannot see your supporting introverted box.

Nash is able to generate endless ideas and connecting thoughts, which is what Creative Storm is all about. Neuroscience shows that the brains of those with the Creative Storm superpower are always thinking many thoughts, they are constantly flooded by many thoughts and ideas, often very unrelated to whatever is in front of them.
For Nash, being asked to brainstorm is both a pleasure and a relief, he no longer has to keep trying to slow down the infinite supply of ideas. Like lightning strikes, Nash's ideas jump from topic to topic, which can sometimes be very frustrating to those around them when this power is overused.
When Nash should be focusing on getting a task done, Nash's brain is instead coming up with new and different ways to approach the task. In an argument, those with Creative Storm are simultaneously playing devil's advocate for all sides.
Those with Creative Storm often find their mouth open blurting out an idea without any need to decide if it is good or not.
