Reconsidering Philosopher 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 Philosopher and Investigator. Please review both now and consider whether you’d like to change one or both of those answers.


Philosophers are confident. Philosophers are very reputation focused, but unlike Wayfarers, they believe a person’s status is inherent to them. A person is inherently “superior” or “right” regardless of what others think. Even when everyone else disagrees with them, a Philosopher will remain confident that “I know what is best.”

Philosophers often believe that “I have the right to choose ‘what is right’ and ‘what is wrong” and in some cases may even believe that “the rules do not apply to me.”

When someone else challenges or opposes them, a Philosopher will often counter by undermining the person, not their ideas. They will attempt to slander their adversary, cast doubts about whether “this person is a ‘moral’ or ‘trustworthy’ person.” Or the Philosopher may undermine their opponent’s resources (financial or otherwise), or create incentives encouraging them to withdraw (i.e. bribery or blackmail).

Philosophers believe in the power of knowledge. They gather and organize information, but they rarely believe in “objective truth.” Rather they believe that “truth” is a matter of perspective, that “if enough people believe something, it becomes true.”

Philosophers believe in “optimizing” and “perfecting” things. They often feel driven to “build something better” (in an abstract sense). And they often believe that “I alone” know “what is best,” so they will often resist any “ideas” or “changes” other than their own.

Philosophers frequently believe that “everyone has a role to play” and “there is a natural order to things” (but that system frequently places them above everyone else).


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.

Note: If you choose to change Investigator, you will also need to re-click Philosopher.
