Hypothalamus Body Type Personality Profile
Hypothalamus body types are characterized by extremes, completely immersing themselves in a project or endeavor, then transferring their energy to something else
I totally immerse myself in activities and endeavors, to the point of being a crusader. Once finished, I switch to the next subject that captures my interest. This typifies my approach to relationships, travel, inner realization, and career. Extremes are common. I have a deep curiosity about nature and how things work. I am comfortable in the world of concepts and ideas. My natural logic, decisiveness, commitment and determination assist me in professional success. I am quick thinking and see the big picture.
When immersed in what interests me, I am able to travel to my inner depths and connect integral parts of my being. In this way I learn to rely on my own inner guidance, rather than conventional standards and opinions. This cycle is fulfilling to me. I am self contained and independent, and this is often perceived as a difficulty with self-disclosure.
I have an intense sense of responsibility for my behavior. I can have an intuitive sense of the significance of my actions, and I feel a need for accuracy in all that I do. Because of this I approach life with a measure of caution. I generally gather all the necessary tools, study the directions, and formulate a plan before starting a project. I can become completely immersed in a project, then transfer all my energy to something else. I am characterized by extremes, and tend to go through phases.
Challenges provide the focus I need to go to the depths, immersing myself in an endeavor which ultimately develops another trait of self that I can share with the world. My strong analytical mind and sensitive intuition allows me to excel in the creation of companies, financial empires, or a way of life to benefit myself first, then mankind.
