What is a Quester?
Questers think of their work differently from most people. Like many individuals, Questers will probably spend a third to half of their adult lives working or thinking about work. But unlike most people at crucial points in their careers, they set off on quests to find missing links in their lives…
Some adults possess Quester qualities such as self-confidence, the desire for challenge, and a sense of achievement. However, most Questers have strengthened these and developed others necessary to prevail in a changing world. They have learned to risk, to turn crises into opportunities, and to adapt to changing circumstances.
By reading about the courage and imagination Questers rely on to find career happiness and growth, you may discover ways to take better control of your career—and your life. Some started taking charge of their careers early in life. Others were near retirement. Maybe you share some of the personality characteristics Questers tend to have: purpose, autonomy, confidence, achievement, growth, creativity, risk, resilience, optimism, androgyny, and interpersonal skills. Where do you fit in?
Why Questers Succeed Where Others Fail
Questers are purposeful, innovative, and resilient, and are better prepared to succeed in changing times.
Questers view career advancement as growth of the whole person. They are independent, optimistic, innovative, rich in inner resources, and often drawn to challenges. They have the courage to take risks.
Questers measure success by internal standards rather than by the “shoulds” of others. They value self-respect more than what others say about them. For them, security in a changing world must come from within.
Because they work hard and are goal-oriented, they tend to succeed where others stagnate or fail. Indeed, some become billionaires or achieve celebrity. Money and prestige, however, are merely by-products.
Questers have higher levels of career and personal satisfaction than many others. They create self-harmonious work by choosing activities that provide meaning, purpose, and direction. Questers are productive, healthy, and happy well into their nineties.
