The independent thinker is an analytical and witty person. He is normally self-confident and does not let himself get worked up by conflicts and criticism. He is very much aware of his own strengths and has no doubts about his abilities. People of this personality type are often very successful in their career as they have both competence and purposefulness. The independent thinker is an excellent strategist; logic, systematics and theoretical considerations are his world. He is eager for knowledge and always endeavours to expand and perfect his knowledge in any area which is interesting for him. Abstract thinking comes naturally to him; scientists and computer specialists are often of this type.
The independent thinker is a specialist in his area. The development of his ideas and visions is important to him; he loves being as flexible as possible and, ideally, of being able to work alone because he often finds it a strain having to make his complex trains of thought understandable to other people. He cannot stand routine. Once he considers an idea to be good it is difficult to make him give it up; he pursues the implementation of that idea obstinately and persistently, also in the face of external opposition.
The independent thinker is not the type who easily comes out of his shell. Speaking about his emotional life is also not one of his strong points. Anyway, social relationships are not particularly important to him; he is happy with just a few, close friends who find it easy to share his intellectual world. He finds it difficult to establish new ties. In love, he needs a lot of space and independence but this does not mean that his partner is not important to him. The independent thinker often makes a cool and reserved impression on others; but this impression is deceptive: he can hardly bear it if people close to him should reject him. He prefers a harmonious, balanced relationship with a partner who shares his interests and with whom he can realise his visions.
