Joe is a very hands-on kind of guy, and while he prefers to be in control of most situations, he readily accepts others as team players. He utilizes the right-side of his brain way more than the left-side which often times gets him trouble. Creativity and great design along with his keen eye for details are challenged at times by his quick-wit and sense of humor. His eye for detail enables him to pick-up new things relatively quickly, which is a good thing because he does not enjoy reading books or studying.
