May 29 2014: What kind of personality do I have? And how accurate was the test? Pretty accurate is the answer—though I have mellowed with age. I haven’t lost my temper in over four years. “Mechanically skilled?” I should be so lucky.

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.

An ad for popped up so I thought I would give it a try.

Apparently, I’m part EXPLORER and part DIRECTOR—but, primarily I’m an Explorer.

You know I guess I am.

It doesn’t make for an easy life—but it is ever an interesting one. 



You seek adventures of the mind and senses.

You are very curious and creative, and you are willing to take some risks to pursue your interests. Adaptable and optimistic, you can be easily bored when you’re not doing something interesting. You have a lot of energy, and you tend to be spontaneous or even impulsive.

You are more creative than other personality types and usually have a wide variety of interests. You find it easy to focus intently on what interests you, and your enthusiasm promotes motivation and a drive to achieve. You can be very generous to family and friends, and you’ve always got something going on.


Things Explorers should be aware of:

  • They are so mentally flexible and spontaneous that they can appear indecisive and unpredictable.
  • They tend to be impatient with cautious people or those with more rigid views of morality.
  • They focus on many things at a time.



When you add Director [Your secondary type]

You are very independent and admire self-control. Analytical, skeptical and exacting, you can be tough-minded and decisive. You enjoy competing and achieving, and you are usually mathematically or mechanically skilled. You generally have a few very close friends, rather than a big social circle.


Things Directors should be aware of:

  • You are susceptible to anger, exploding into generalized rage when you feel hurt, disappointed or frustrated.
  • Your ambition can lead to workaholism.
  • You can become uncompromising and demanding.


Explorer in love

As an Explorer, you look out not in; you are foremost interested in the world around you. So you are attracted to a mate who is also intellectually and physically adventurous and interested in dissecting this complex, tangible universe. You particularly like imaginative and theoretical people, a “mind mate.” And you like a partner who is sexual, because you regard sex as an important aspect of a relationship. You have nerves of steel and thrive on the edge. You are also decisive and direct. So you are unconsciously drawn to those who can balance out your highly independent and tough-minded spirit—those who are novelty seeking, yet compassionate, verbal, intuitive, trusting, flexible and emotionally expressive.
