Do you not only imagine the world of the future but feel driven to build it, too? Do you love to think of new ways to solve problems? Are you willing to experiment, revise and tinker for however long it takes to come up with the next great thing? Then hello, Inventor.
Are you fascinated by what people want, desire, and buy? Do you notice what problems people are trying to solve in their lives and have a sense about how what they need? Do you look at products, media, and society at large and ask: What’s the big idea? Then you just might be the Idea Guy or Idea Girl.
Do you secretly love thinking that at any moment life as we know it could end forever? Do you see a future that involves war, chaos, anarchy, natural disaster and possibly zombies? Do you have a year’s worth of survival supplies on-the-ready and do you imagine who you’ll share them with when doomsday comes – and who you won’t? Then you might be a Catastrophic.
Do things that seem meaningless to others make sense to you? Do you create theories and breakthroughs that are one-of-a-kind? Do you concentrate your dynamic energy in one area of life, mastering the skills, solving the problems, and achieving everything you dream of doing in that area? Does your devotion to your interest verge on obsession? You may very well be a Genius!
Do you ever get so involved in what you’re doing that you don’t notice big things are happening around you (like the is house on fire, etc.?) Does your headspace sometimes become so narrow that you are consumed with thoughts on a single topic? Do you sometimes forget to eat (or sleep or go to the bathroom) because you’re soooo into what you’re doing? Hello, Hyperfocused!
Do you talk to yourself? How about people who aren’t in the room because they are the president or a fictional character or dead: Do you talk to them, too? Do the lines between public behavior and private behavior seem blurred or non-existent to you? Do you suspect that when others look around, they’re not seeing the same world as you?
Superstitious much? Like cards, craps, and guessing games? Do you play the odds even when you know they are not in your favor because the jackpot is winking to you? Do you think when Lady Luck brushes against you you’ll have the magic touch on slot machines, lottery tickets, street games, horse races, and any game at all? Then hello, Gambler!
