What is Alan Gratz’s Personality Type?
An extroverted intuitive, you are open to the reality of the world, objects, and others. You have a special duality to your mind, which is made up of equal parts of intellectual resources and sensitivity, giving you great intuition and humanism. As a function of this latter, you have a great sense of your fellow human and the oracular art of divining people’s unconscious wishes and motivations – in fact, your advice is often sought. In material terms, it gives you a talent for locating lost objects and a spirit of discovery and invention.

Your perception of your own personality is vague or even negative. In fact, your grandiose personal gestures are motivated by a need to hide your unavowed feelings of inferiority and, at times, your fear of strong personalities. But you are above all an idealist. Hope is the prime mover of your spirit, and you are continually traveling along the axis of the hope/despair polarity. As you apply yourself to ignoring whatever is impervious to your aspirations, you should acquire some certainty of what is still possible – for you and the world.
