I'm not sure I agree with everything, particularly the part about low empathy, but this was interesting. I bet it would be different on a different day, in a different mood. To see how I rated, just mouse over the different colored squares.
As a DESIGNER, you are receptive to ideas and experiences, and enjoy the beautiful things in life, yet you are also grounded and realistic about yourself and the world.
You have a quiet appreciation for beauty in all its forms – in nature, in people, and in human creations from architecture to movies.
Instead of only focusing on functionality, you try to incorporate your good sense of style and taste into your choices.
At times you feel unsure of yourself, especially when confronted by other people.
You aren't the kind of person who insists on having things your way all the time – you are willing to go along with other people's opinions, even if you disagree.
Others may not know this about you, but you are very interested in new ideas, thoughts, expressions, and experiences. You enjoy learning and trying new things.
Although you are practical, you are anything but boring – you have depths to you that others cannot see.
The idea of doing the same thing every day for the rest of your life scares you – you need more excitement and challenge than that!
You have a remarkable eye for detail and precision, noticing things that others miss.
You are balanced in your approach to problem-solving, not letting your emotions hold you up.
You are a fashion maven, up on trends, but distinct in your own style. You don't follow trends, you set them.
Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you.
If you want to be different:
Have faith in your ideas, and voice them more often. Your unique perspective needs to be shared!
Allow yourself to become fully immersed in your dreams now and then. You can develop your aesthetic vision even further by allowing your imagination to flourish.
Be as open to your own wishes as you are to those of others.
How I Relate To Others
You are Animated
You are outgoing, comfortable with others, and up for anything, which makes you ANIMATED.
Some people find crowds and parties exhausting, but not you! You are able to be yourself in many situations.
Sometimes it is hard for you to understand why others feel the way they do, but that doesn't stop you from trusting them or having faith that they are good people.
You know the world is complicated and that there is often more than one side to a story, so you are careful not to make judgments about others too hastily.
You would rather experience the world than sit back and observe it—you are not one to sit on the sidelines.
You are an independent thinker and don't get too worried about how others might perceive you—you are not self-conscious about being the active, engaged person that you are.
Although you have a keen understanding of different people's life circumstances, you occasionally have trouble seeing why people get so upset and emotional about things—they should just lighten up and have fun!
In addition to having faith in the world, you have faith in the people around you—you trust others to do the right thing and to be honest.
