Summary

The Logical Tan has a tendency to keep their feelings and thoughts to themselves. Logical Tans are very logical and analytical. They choose to process every step, from one through ten. Logical Tans do not like to skip or miss anything. Their method of processing cannot be rushed. They need to analyze and comprehend the logic in each step before proceeding to the next.

Logical Tans like to establish a firm foundation, and then slowly build brick by brick, step by step. Otherwise, they are afraid the entire project will collapse on them.

Not being risk-takers, these methodical thinkers need to see all the data and all the facts before making any moves. Everything for Logical Tans is done in an orderly and sequential manner. Every detail is meticulously processed.

Logical Tans typically form very habitual patterns. They are more comfortable repeating the same duties day after day. They don’t like their routines to be altered. Even rearranging the furniture in their homes can throw them off and cause them to feel awkward until they are able to readjust to the new situation.

 

Your Life Purpose

A Tan’s life purpose appears to be to analyze, learn, and understand three-dimensional reality and then enjoy living a comfortable, secure and stable life. They are logical, methodical, reliable and responsible. Tans prefer and can be counted on to handle the details of a project. They are the personalities who can patiently take others’ ideas and theories and actually develop the technology, architectural plans, or end products. Tans have the ability to accomplish tasks that frustrate others.

Tans enjoy careers as engineers, architects, bookkeepers, scientists, mathematicians, computer programmers, librarians, court reporters, researchers, and technicians.

 

Relationships

These practical and down-to-earth personalities value long-term commitment. They need partners they can count on to be logical, devoted, and reliable. They prefer mates who can be content with and even appreciate a basic and secure lifestyle – not those who need extravagance or an outrageous and adventurous life. Tans usually are the ones who faithfully stay in marriages and jobs their entire lives. They work steadily and earn a reliable income so they can have a secure home environment, a healthy pension, and safe retirement plan. This way they can provide for their family and live comfortably for the rest of their lives. Tans are not risk takers or gamblers; they prefer partners who will share in a safe, sensible, and long-term committed partnership.

 

Careers & Jobs

Logical Tans are most often drawn to safe, secure, analytical office jobs. They love to calculate numbers, analyze data, and work with details. They prefer secure, long-term positions with stable companies. It is rare to find Logical Tans in the unpredictable entertainment business. However, Harrison Ford, Brad Pitt, and Kevin Costner are Yellow/Logical Tan combinations with Violet in their outer bands. And Clint Eastwood is an Environmental Tan/Violet combination. The Yellow or Violet aspects enable these people to flourish in this type of creative field.

Typical Logical Tan occupations include the following:
Engineer, Office clerk, Architect, Data processor, Bookkeeper, Factory assembly worker, Accountant, Librarian, Computer analyst, Court reporter, Researcher, Appliance repairperson, Scientist, Electrician, Technician, Computer operator, Mathematician, County surveyor.

 

Money & Abundance

Security and stability are important to Logical Tans, who therefore tend to prefer a regular paycheck to the uncertainty and unpredictability of being self-employed. They want money, but they believe they must work long, hard, and consistently for it, then safely invest it in long-term, solid investments. These security-minded Tans have the ability to work for the same company for years. Retirement benefits and pension plans are considered major assets to Logical Tans. These prudent spenders tend to be frugal with their money, buying the least expensive and most practical items. (Greens, who always want the best, classiest, and most expensive items, can become frustrated with Logical Tan’s practical attitude. However, Greens, who also tend to spend beyond their means, can learn and benefit from a Logical Tan’s practical spending behavior, who can help them stay out of financial debt.)

Success
Success for Logical Tans can be measured tangibly by how many accounts they have maintained in business, how well they have been able to provide financial security for themselves and their families, and how many of their investments have proven to be profitable. These Tans like to see how well they have been able to figure out life and to what degree they have been able to provide a secure and comfortable niche for themselves and their families.

 

Health

The main health problems for Logical Tans tend to stem from long hours of detailed mental work. Many of these Tans have poor vision as a result of straining over computer work, financial ledgers, or legal papers. Because they usually do sedentary mental work, they often suffer from such maladies as hemorrhoids, headaches, excess weight, and weak muscles. They also tend to suppress their emotions – keeping them locked privately inside, which can cause ulcers, stomach or digestive problems, constipation, and even impotence.

Some Logical Tans have an additional Life Color in their personalities, which can cause a variety of other illnesses. For example, a Logical Tan/Violet combination is susceptible, more than any other Color Combination, to cancer, heart attack, and stroke because of the struggle to harmonize the conflict between the grounded, logical Tan and the passionate, visionary Violet. To stay healthy, these Tans must worry less about the details. They need to rest their eyes occasionally to prevent strain (blinking the eyes frequently also helps avoid strain). They need to balance mental work with physical exercise (this also increases oxygen to the brain so they can think more clearly and effortlessly), and they need to express, not suppress, their feelings more often.
