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 Adventurer. 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).
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.”
