(this is his dominant personality type)



(he also shows elements of this type)


31 | Washington, District of Columbia

Scholar and Sailor

He is an independent thinker who approaches problems with an analytical, exacting, systematic and resourceful mind. Yet he also has a traditional, even sentimental streak and can be very protective of those he loves.

Because he is ambitious, tough-minded and hardworking, his close friends admire him. Yet his complex personality is often hidden behind a wall of composure and logic.

He is attracted to someone who can complement him-someone who is verbally graceful, who weighs alternatives carefully and listens actively, and has well-honed social skills.

A few excerpts from his personality test:

  • I enjoy competitive conversations
  • My family and friends would say I have traditional values
  • I have a wide range of interests

in his own words...

I moved to Washington last summer after five years living and working around the country and the world. My friends would describe me as honest, smart, and thoughtful. I'm usually the responsible one in the group, but I'm working on that. My friends say, I have an old soul. I grew up in Minnesota, and maintain my Minnesota Nice even if I don't have a Minnesota accent. I've love history. Reading about it, touching it, experiencing it. I once took a trip just to meet he last American veteran of the First World War before he passed. Someday I'd like to have a house with a dedicated library. I love old books I sing with a choir and rehearsal is one of the highlights of my week. I enjoy concerts and I have a goal to attend more. That said, I’m far more familiar with music of 80 or 200 years ago than what is on the radio today (my radio is almost always tuned to NPR). I like to stay active. I ride my bike to work, and love the outdoors. I'm looking forward to the summer for chances to go hiking, camping, and paddling. (I'd love to have someone to come along). My job here has taught me to be able to spin a conversation about weather to last 15 minutes, so I have to mention the weather here. I love all four seasons, and I miss real winter here. I also wish thunderstorms on the east coast had more than 20 minutes of thunder. I think most people are contradictory (I know I am), so what am I looking for? Someone who is smart, witty, and knows about the world. Someone who is an excellent conversationalist but who is also comfortable with silence. Someone with with whom I can explore the city and world who is equally comfortable at high tea as in the High Sierra.

Take the personality test everyone is talking about.
