You are very goal driven and criticize yourself harshly. You are very sensitive to being ignored or excluded. When you feel ‘troubled,’ you often try to ‘find the pattern’ and ‘hidden meaning’ behind things. You enjoy nature and ‘opportunities to be clever.”

“You value what is new and often look to the future. You warn others of possible dangers, and secretly expect some form of gratitude or reciprocity in return. You long to be admired and often seek out the company of people who are skilled, powerful, and/or attractive. You are very good at ‘making a case’ and convincing others to agree with you. You feel that rules are ‘open to interpretation’ and find a ‘lack of flexibility’ challenging. You do not like feeling ‘obligated’ to others. When stressed, you often seek out ‘distractions’ as a coping mechanism.”

You sometimes struggle with social conventions, but believe it is your duty to conform to them. You find change stressful, and have a tendency to cling to the familiar. In the face of too much emotion or social interaction, you focus on logical details, often seeking solitude to think.”
