(this is his dominant personality type)
(he also shows elements of this type)
This should be fun . . . or interesting, at least!
He is a tough-minded, independent thinker who likes to explore ideas or problems thoroughly. Yet he has a wild side and is not interested in maintaining routine social engagements either.
He gravitates to men and women who are intellectually exciting and like to discuss topics broadly and thoroughly.
He tends to like someone who is spontaneous, even mischievous, as well as a mate who can appreciate his rugged individualism and support of his drive to succeed.
A few excerpts from his personality test:
- When reading, I enjoy it when the writer takes a sidetrack to say something beautiful or meaningful
- I consider (and reconsider) every option thoroughly before making a plan
- I am always looking for new experiences
His 13 interests
in his own words...
I’m not much of a writer, so how do I capture my – or anyone’s – life and personality in a few words? (Or a lot of words! Give me a 100 pages and all I'd do is put you to sleep.) Well, I can run you through some facts: I love the outdoors and physical activity of just about every sort. I’m an avid trail runner and hiker. I’ve just taken up kite boarding (an awesome sport, although my God the Bay is cold and murky; Maui is way nicer). I am an executive at TRX, a fitness company, so I’m lucky enough that exercise is actually part of my job. I can usually take an hour or so out of every day to run, do yoga, strength train or otherwise get my body moving. I’d have a hard time giving that up. I also like good food and red wine. Restaurants are fun, almost any kind, but so is staying in and cooking. I’m not a great chef, but I have fun. The best part of eating and drinking for me is the chance it gives me to talk with my friends. Because more than anything, I like to talk, to sit down with a friend after a day’s work, drink in hand (Scotch, if it’s available), and share what’s going on. And not just the facts. Facts are good – what you did, when you did it, what you’re reading, where you’ve been, all that – but they’re really just windows into our inner lives – how do you feel about what happened, what are you thinking, what made you laugh, and why. That may sound a bit heavy, but it’s not. If you are not laughing at least half the time, something is not right. Because if talk of facts leads to talk of feelings, then talk of feelings should lead to laughter. For sure. What else? I really enjoy movies of just about all types – big budget, artsy, whatever. The Seven Samurai, Duck Soup, A Night at the Opera, Superbad, James Bond, LA Confidential, The Godfather, any Martin Scorsese movie, The Third Man. Does the mirror scene in Duck Soup kill you? Watching it is one of my earliest memories, and it still cracks me up. Here’s a Groucho Marx line you can use on your next b
