Reconsidering Wayfarer or Investigator

If you feel that the previous page was not a good fit for you, then it’s time to reexamine some of your earlier choices and consider other possibilities.

You previously chose Wayfarer and Investigator. Please review both now and consider whether you’d like to change one or both of those answers.


Wayfarers are very “outcome” focused. They believe in a “whatever works” outlook. (In some cases this can lead to “cutting corners.”) They are natural performers who strive to “look good” and “speak/act well.” Reputation is very important to them. They like to be admired and strive to “perfect” themselves. They can be quite competitive, but also enjoy collaborating with other Wayfarers to achieve “greater outcomes.”

Socially, they seek loyalty from others, but value their independence. They will often “seek out” someone that they feel “needs me,” but also struggle with becoming “over-encumbered.” If they feel that someone else is “asking too much of them” or “not holding up their end of the bargain” they will move on.

Wayfarers love to explore, see and experience new things. They love to travel, looking for “treasure” that might add to their “performance.” Wayfarers are known collectors (of experiences and of items), but once in a while they may pause and struggle with the meaning (or lack of meaning) behind what they do.

Some compare Wayfarers to the mythical “siren.” They often enjoy the chase (as either role), the adoration and potency of “something new,” but once they “have it” or “complete the task,” there’s a strong urge to “move on to something new.” (They are eager to begin, but don’t always finish what they start.)

Times of inactivity are very hard for a Wayfarer, as are “conflicts” and “times of crisis.” When challenged or stressed, Wayfarers can become very selfish, then struggle with the guilt later.

Humility is another challenge for a Wayfarer (who often prides themselves on “high performance,” and does not like admitting their shortcomings or flaws).


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.
