It is well known how important a role model can be for us. As a rule, we choose
a role model intuitively, by trying to be similar to or under the influence
of persons, heroes we admire.
We intentionally or unconsciously try to follow our role model's behavior, although often our
relevant traits do not reasonably match those of our role model. For this reason it is more
advantageous to choose as a role model personalities whose traits are similar to ours.
One of the main factors shaping a person's lifestyle is his attitude to risk
and stability. A person's attitude to risk and stability can be represented
by his "risk profile". What is a "risk profile"?
According to our approach a person's behavior can be categorized by seven risk types.
Our database consists of 250 famous men and women in different spheres of activity. We carefully investigated the facts of their biographies, answered for them the questions of our risk attitudes questionnaire and thus obtained their risk profiles. The celebrities can be grouped according to their spheres of activity. We distinguish thirteen such groups:
In addition to the list of role models, a list of the most suitable areas of activity is presented as well. This list is generated on the basis of occupations of the role models. Thus, occupational recommendations are presented not only as a list of favorable spheres of activity, but also as a list of heroes, icons who succeed in those fields.
How is the risk profile of a test taker juxtaposed with the risk profiles of the famous people from our database? The strengths of expression of all seven risk types which comprise the profiles are compared. The celebrities whose risk profile correlates highly with the risk profile of the test taker are listed at the top of the list. The percentage of similarity of the risk profiles is presented as well. There are also descriptions of a test taker's most advantageous features presented in the test results. The sample of the test result is shown below.
|Celebrity's name||Profile's similarity %|
|Alfred Nobel, inventor of dynamite, industrialist||99|
|Dennis Tito, American financier, first astronaut-tourist||93|
|Thomas Edison, inventor||91|
|Andrew Grove, founder of Intel||90|
