Dreamers are often subtle, soft spoken, and caring. They want to connect with and understand others in the deepest of ways. Dreamers are romantics and artists. They focus on the future, imagining what could be. Dreamers are always striving towards a goal, trying to bring their “dreams” to life. They may struggle to start something, but once begun, they rarely give up (even when they should).
Socially, Dreamers are very open and honest, but also very vulnerable and sensitive. They do not handle conflict well and strive to achieve harmony with others (sometimes sacrificing their own wants and desires for the sake of others). This can lead to a hidden “build-up” of frustration, a rare but intense desire to “get what I want,” or an excess of “self-indulgence.”
Investigators use logic to try and understand the complex systems of the world, to make sense of all the information they receive throughout their life. They are eager to learn and to teach, believing that greater understanding benefits us all. Investigators believe in “testing” things, and rarely believe anything without testing it first.
Socially, Investigators often operate independently. They have little awareness of the emotions of others (or their own for that matter), but are very devoted and loyal to those they care about (though others may be surprised when and how that loyalty manifests).
Investigators rarely engage or express their own emotions (preferring to focus on logic), but when they do become emotional it can be very intense. Afterwards they often prefer to “refocus on their studies” rather than reflect on their prior emotional intensity.
Adventurers are confident, optimistic, and direct. They do not plan, preferring to “adapt to” and “live in” the moment. They are often upbeat and easygoing. They often act quickly, without hesitation or second thought. In some cases this “impulsive nature” can lead to unforeseen consequences.
Adventurers are “quick to begin” but slow to finish. New ideas and opportunities encourage them to “jump from one thing to the next.” In turn, this can lead to “returning to a prior project with fresh perspective, and new ideas (if they return to it).”
Adventurers often prefer to “learn by doing” or “experimenting,” rather than “read a book” or passively “watch and listen” as someone else explains and demonstrates. For this reason, they often find “classroom education” challenging.
Some adventurers are very mechanically inclined, exploring and “taking apart” machines and systems so that they can try “putting them back together ‘better.” These types of adventurers can be so focused on “the concrete” that they are unaware of the emotions of those around them.
Other adventurers are more social in nature. They are fiercely independent, full of passionate beliefs, and work hard for the sake of those they care for (often children and animals). This emphasis on passion can make objectivity a challenge for “these types of adventurers.”
Defenders are direct, honest, calm, and loyal. They work hard to create stability for themselves and those they care about. They place a strong emphasis on moral values and their duty to others. Defenders have a strong memory, and often value the comfort of familiar things and routines. They plan ahead (and may find the absence of a plan stressful). Defenders also have a great respect for traditions, and often look to the past for insight into what they should do. Defenders are practical, focusing on “what is.”
Defenders can struggle with change, struggle to adapt to “new situations and circumstances.” Defenders “need to know what to expect,” which can be frustrating for someone who enjoys improvising or imagining possibilities. Defenders excel at maintenance, upkeep, and logistics. They prefer “concrete details” over abstract theories or “imagined possibilities.
Some Defenders strive to be objective and rational, to keep emotion out of the equation. Other Defenders are natural nurturers, thriving in the routine care of others.
