Strong practical skills
I am able to solve problems with a very 'hands-on' solution. I really don't like making mistakes, to be honest, but when I do, I usually fix them by working my way through it.
Strong sense of duty
I have a strong sense of responsibility and strive to meet my obligations, though this may sometimes be more from a sense of social expectations than intrinsic drive.
Good at connecting with others
To make a good connection with someone, I try to listen really carefully to that person. I have no problem with small talk or following social cues in order to help them take an active role in my communities.
My name is Sophie Peijnenburg and I have worked as a professional User Researcher and UX designer for over 4 years now. I graduated in Communication and Multimedia design of the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam (2019). During my course, I studied UX, Behavioural Design, Graphic Design, Human-centred Design and I completed a minor in Design Thinking and Doing. I love doing User Research the most because it gives me the opportunity to really connect with the end-user in a fun way, and come up with a better and creative solution based on the research insights.
Next to working in several agencies (within national and international teams) I also have experience working as a freelancer and working abroad.
"Few personality types are as practical and caring as Consuls. Known for their social and administrative skills, Consuls are good at creating and maintaining a secure, stable and friendly environment for themselves and their loved ones. Consuls’ dedication is invaluable in many areas, including their own personal growth.
Yet Consuls can be easily tripped up in areas where their kindness and practical approach are more of a liability than an asset." - Result 16 personalities
I recently took the '16 personalities' test to see what kind of personality I have and how this can be a benefit in a working environment. It turned out that I belong to the Consul-type personalities, which means that I have a very practical approach to problems and love to maintain a stable and friendly environment for myself and others.
Characteristics I recognize myself most in:
