Anyone here attached to an accountant? These folks generally have an excellent eye for minutia and detail. If there's one grain of black sand on the entire beach their eyes will be instantly and irresistably drawn to it. This is a good quality when it comes to finding minute errors on mile-long ledgers....the same quality can be much less endearing when it comes to finding fault with their SO (YOU!)
Lawyers are generally brilliant when it comes to finding an angle to argue and doing so passionately for their clients. A great attribute to have in an advocate.... at times less so when it comes to interpersonal communications, as these folks are sometimes given to disputation as an end unto itself (trust me on this)
Similarly psychologists or therapists are good at extracting feelings, thoughts, and motives we sometimes hide from ourselves....this type of scrutiny too carries its own drawbacks when it comes to relationships (particularly when they never stop delving)
Any other personal qualities that you can think of traditionally associated with a profession you know of that's considered a good thing when it comes to their profession, but perhaps a Bad Thing in one's personal life? Share your experiences.
Do you think there are there any quintessential planner qualities we bring to relationships that might fit that bill?
