Strengths

+ weaknesses

At her best...

The Seeker lives by the beat of her own drummer and shows others how to do the same. Her quest is to fully understand who she truly is and her place in the world. Her curiosity compels her to seek out new experiences. Consequently, her path is one of continual growth and expansion in all areas of her life. She is the perfect role model for anyone who is also searching for their own personal truth and helps them in their journey.

At her worst...

She is easily bored and can be seen as flakey and unreliable. The reason for her journey is to discover who she truly is. However sometimes she can get lost because of a fear of committing to anything. If she’s not careful, her constant search for “more” can become an obsession and act as a defense against connecting with the people, places and ideas that can help her fulfill her mission in life.
