What Personality Type are You? Part 4

     OK, perhaps you're not a Wood or Fire type.  Here's another quiz to see if this personality type fits you.  Remember, these are basic personality tendencies we're describing, not one's whole type.  This is based on Beinfield and Korngold's book Between Heaven and Earth: A Guide to Chinese Medicine.  You may read more there if you're interested.

     This person tends to have a round physique, with a round face and soft, smooth skin.  Their hands and feet may seem proportionally small.  They tend to have broad shoulders and hips.

     This personality type wants to feel needed and loves to be involved.  They like to be in charge but try to avoid the limelight.  They want to be all things to all people and are agreeable if not overly accommodating.  Their fundamental goal is harmony and togetherness.  They strongly prefer loyalty, security, and predictability.

     They may have issues with worry, obsession, and self-doubt.  The may come across as meddling and overprotective.  They may hold unrealistic expectations and suffer from disappointment.  Physically, they may suffer from unruly appetites, indigestion, water retention, muscle tenderness, and lethargy.

     Does this sound like you?  If so, you are an Earth type, a Peacemaker.  Your capacity to nurture, to build community and your devotion to relationships needs to be balanced with solitude, self-expression, and self-reliance.
