You're a born collaborator, and truly appreciate the perspectives of other brains. You respect and attract your colleagues and client's opinions. You believe that you very well might not know the answer. You ask great questions.

You are a communicator. You are able to take an ask and turn it into understandable and actionable ideas. You break down the complex into the simple.
