What Personality Type are You? Part 3

     Perhaps the last quiz didn't quite fit your personality type.  Well, here's a second quiz for you to try on for size.

     This person often has a soft, willowy physique, with graceful hands and feet, and a long neck, arms and legs.  They relish excitement and yet enjoy intimacy.  They are keenly intuitive and passionately empathetic (an empath?).  They enjoy the power of charisma and desire.  They love sensation, drama and sentiment.  They like things to be hot, bright, and vibrant.

     This personality type may have problems with anxiety, agitation, and frenzy.  They may be labeled as "drama queens (or kings)."  They may have unusual perceptions and sensations, and may be called hypersensitive or giddy.  They may wear themselves out into nervous exhaustion and have issues with insomnia.  They may abuse mind-altering substances.

     Does this sound like you?  If so, you are a Fire type, a Philosopher, according to Beinfeld's and Korngold's book Between Heaven and Earth: A Guide to Chinese Medicine.  If so, you need to balance your unique ability to realize joy and fulfillment with some temperance of your fervor; you need to learn to withdraw and separate yourself when necessary and embrace and merge when it's called for.
