A few of the things that struck me were this:
Campaigners will spend a lot of time exploring social relationships, feelings and ideas before they find something that really rings true. But when they finally do find their place in the world, their imagination, empathy and courage are likely to produce incredible results.
When I started writing my stories, they were mostly thrillers, suspense, even fantasy. But one thing that critique partners would always bring up was how the interactions between my characters always stood out, most of all their relationships.
In real life, I’ve explored so many different types of relationships, constantly searching for what “really rings true” to me. In one relationship, we explored polyamory although he was the one practicing it (much to my dismay but it was experimental at that point, at least, for me) and when I mentioned I was ready to “see” someone else, he freaked out and said NO. So there went the polyamory experiment. I actually had no one else in the horizon but it was worth a look to see what he’d say.
As a writer, I explore social relationships through my stories because, well, fictional relationships, at least in my case, are more exciting than their real life counterparts.
And then there was this:
Poor Practical Skills – When it comes to conceiving ideas and starting projects, especially involving other people, Campaigners have exceptional talent. Unfortunately their skill with upkeep, administration, and follow-through on those projects struggles. Without more hands-on people to help push day-to-day things along, Campaigners’ ideas are likely to remain just that – ideas.
That’s one sure sign that in a zombie apocalypse, I’d be useless.
What about you? What personality type are you?
