Reconsidering Wayfarer or Adventurer

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 Adventurer. 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).


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.”
