What is Brandon McDonald’s Personality Type?
You are a loner. You are sometimes withdrawn and have a fairly chilly, nonchalant personality. Although you are introverted, you are extremely rational. You are wary at times of the outer world, your senses, and even your intellect, because they might all be sources of illusion. Your quest for identity with a spiritual whole gives you a voracious appetite for ideologies, structures, and theories. Readings which others would find abstract and intellectual impress you as reflections of important and lively realities. As a result, you have a penchant for reflection and philosophical study.

Your existence and organism are arranged to optimize them; others may consider you slow, but you are really just playing it safe, because, unconsciously, you know time is on your side. When you take an initiative, it is after careful forethought and preparation. Your great composure, ability to resist and overcome obstacles and wickedness, and your foresight give you a great potential to accomplish total self-control.
