Please consider the following 4 descriptions and choose the one that you feel best describes you.

Description #6

Do you feel it is often your role or responsibility to “point out other possibilities?” Do you feel compelled to consider “every idea, every possibility?”

Do you sometimes “want to understand others (emotionally)” while other times you intensely feel that “I don’t care what anyone else thinks/feels about me?” Do you struggle to identify/know “what the appropriate response is” to a given situation (how you should express yourself)? Do you sometimes worry that you “overly rely on logic” and feel isolated because of it?

“You value ‘feeling in control’ and strive to use logic to achieve this. Sometimes you can be so engaged by your own thoughts that you forget the world around you. You feel a strong desire to ‘contribute the greatest good to the world’ and do so by choosing a single field or subject to focus on. You often prefer to work alone on this task. You sometimes ‘wish to connect with others’ but also worry that ‘they will slow me down. When stressed, you apply more logic in an effort to restore order. You strive to maintain control of your emotions, but once in a great while you do lose control, and afterwards you can be very self critical.”

Description #8

Do you sometimes feel that “my way of seeing things’ is the best way of seeing things?” Do you strive to “look ahead” and “point out specific possibilities” to others? Do you sometimes “forgo what you want” because you feel it “doesn’t fit” within the larger “system” of choices and “things that are already in motion?”

Do you find that your emotions change quickly and are “more intense” than they are for most? Do you find that others often misinterpret how you are feeling? Are you very sensitive to the idea that “maybe I lack integrity” or “maybe I don’t have emotions?” Do you sometimes feel that others don’t appreciate how you express your “love/care” for them? Does the idea of explaining “how you feel” and “what you believe (morally)” feel stressful for you?

“You value logic and efficiency. You strive for ‘maximum gains at minimum costs.’ You work hard and express your opinions openly. You value knowledge. If you don’t know the correct answer, you seek it out. You focus on your goal (and sometimes lose sight of the big picture). You take charge and strive to keep emotion out of the equation. You are stressed by ‘foolishness’ and ‘a lack of good judgement.’ When stressed, you are direct and honest about your objections. If others refuse to heed you, you may quickly become intensely angry. Time alone engaging in sensory activities (hiking, crafting, golf) often help you destress.”

Description #13

Do you feel a compulsion to “stay grounded” and “stick to the facts?” Do you feel obligated to be honest and up front?

Do you “seek out facts” and “cling to them,” using them as proof that you know the “1 truth?” Do you have a desperate need to know the “1 truth,” and an intense fear that “what you believe ‘may not be true after all?”

“You are patient, artistic, and dedicated (usually to one or a few things). You can be very private (keeping your thoughts/feelings to yourself). You value freedom and autonomy to pursue your goals, and often favor solitude to ‘hone your skills’ without interruption or distraction.”

Description #14

Do you feel it is your duty to exercise discipline, to “dress and act appropriately?” Do you feel you “must” be patient with others? Do you often feel compelled to remind others of “other times” that they made similar choices and “the outcomes?”

Do you struggle to “be heard?” Do you sometimes “refrain from sharing your thoughts” until others have shared theirs? Do you secretly fear that you are “too emotional?”

“You believe in your duty to others. You want ‘to be wanted.’ You tend to ‘choose a few’ and care for them. Once your role is secure, you like to wander, to let others guide you to strong sensory experiences. You find ‘lack of organization’ stressful, as well as conflict or distrust. When problems persist, you apply logic, seeking the ‘root/heart’ of the problem. You are often soothed by nature, exercise, and time with a trusted few, sharing positive emotions and light-hearted ‘detail orientated’ projects.”

If none of these feel like a good fit for you, then perhaps you’d like to reconsider some of your earlier choices.
