Oh really?

The Enthusiast
Type Seven is spontaneous, versatile, distractible, and scattered.
Sevens have anxiety about their inner world. There are feelings of pain, loss, deprivation, and general anxiety that Sevens would like to stay clear of as much as possible. To cope with these feelings, Sevens keep their minds occupied with exciting possibilities and options— as long as they have something stimulating to anticipate, Sevens feel that they can distract themselves from their fears. Sevens, in most cases, do not stop merely at thinking about these options, however. As much as possible they attempt to actually do as many of their options as they can. Thus, Sevens can be found staying on the go, pursuing one experience after another, and keeping themselves entertained and engaged with their many ideas and activities.

Lets break it down line by line, shall we?

Type Seven is spontaneous, versatile, distractible, and scattered. — Yes. All of the above.

Sevens have anxiety about their inner world– Yep, you betcha.

There are feelings of pain, loss, deprivation, and general anxiety that Sevens would like to stay clear of as much as possible.–  Yes, I have so much anxiety about things in general sometimes that I think I am going to eventually end up with a stress related ulcer, and feeling of "pain loss and deprivation"– are some of the very basic tenets of my personality.

To cope with these feelings, Sevens keep their minds occupied with exciting possibilities and options— as long as they have something stimulating to anticipate, Sevens feel that they can distract themselves from their fears– Ahh, yes– the classic if I dont' think about it, it'll go away and I won't have to worry about it so lets find something shiny and bubbly to play with tactic that I employ on a daily basis. It works occasionally, till something reminds me of the original problem anyway wherein I return to the anxiety part of my daily life.

Sevens, in most cases, do not stop merely at thinking about these options, however. As much as possible they attempt to actually do as many of their options as they can. Thus, Sevens can be found staying on the go, pursuing one experience after another, and keeping themselves entertained and engaged with their many ideas and activities. — Tis a true statement, to keep myself from thinking about a *then* recent miscarriage, I took a girlfriend and I on a week long trip to Vegas, sans spouses. Previously, in an attempt to feel *younger*, I got a nose ring. It's a good tactic to employ on occasion.

So, does this sum up me in a nutshell, well–sorta. That really illuminates my negative aspects, for sure. But what about the postive ones?

  • Bossy at timeshaha, they didn't call me Hitler Jr, when I was growin' up for nothing.
  • Plans ahead Not really.
  • Attention to detailMeh, not so much.
