My personality is mind-oriented. I understand and relate to the world around me via the medium of thought and intellect. Memorization, comparison, analysis, and the verbalization of my mental imagery are my favorite activities. I seek to extend my personality by a mental outreach to a multitude of new ideas and factors, becoming acquainted with an ever-increasing variety of facets of human nature. Thus, language and symbolic expression, written or oral, are my primary resources in life, although they are also potential pitfalls. My eloquence, wit, and verve, my mastery of language, unquestionably give me power over other people (via communication) and things (science and technique). But taken to extremes, this faculty may lead to incoherency.
It is thus vital for me to find an outlet for my flow of verbal expression, I must explain, communicate, and speak. If it is dammed up, I will undoubtedly suffer. My flow of words is the expression of my vital energy, the proof that I am alive and well. If I am forced to be silent, I would be cut off from the bonds that hold me together. A kind of duality or split personality might emerge… remember Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? “They” were a classic case. For all of the above reasons, I am naturally gregarious and sociable.
I make friends quickly and easily. My contacts and networks are important to me, because they enable me to evolve. They are a source of self-fulfillment and identification. Any form of play is also important to me, and only severe depression will deprive me of my playfulness. I sometimes amuse myself by acting out a variety of roles on the stage of life, just for the fun of it. My animation and wit give me a talent for improvisation and adaptation. However, adaptability is a two-bladed sword. I am liable to find myself in a superficial bind, having jettisoned certain important ideas in order to move about more freely. I am also sensitive, but my emotions and feelings are sometimes subject to the scrutiny and censorship of my intellect. Thus, I cannot free myself to the strength of great passions and energies without idealizing them to a certain degree and giving them intellectual resonance. Wary of my irrational instincts and urges, I tend to control or repress them.
But I will do well to learn that the intellect is not omnipotent, especially where instinct is concerned. Inhabiting a complex inner world, I sometimes feel vulnerable, due to my emotionalism and sensitivity to the aggressions of the outer world. Because I rely first and foremost on my adaptability and agility to wriggle out of trouble, I may, on certain occasions, make rather dubious compromises with myself – all the more likely if my moral fiber is made of wax, as is often the case, instead of steel. The weaknesses I must overcome are instability, wishy-washiness, a lack of determination and coherence in my thought.
