Intestinal Body Type Personality Profile
Intestinal body types have an open approach to life, as constant new experiences are vital to their continued growth and expansion
I am sensitive, extremely emotional, gentle, loving and compassionate. Relationships are extremely important to me. I tend to internalize things, but have a strong need to clear the air. I have high standards and self-expectations. I am very capable, orderly, responsible, methodical, and attentive to detail. This supports my strong desire to do everything right. I am a free spirit, unconventional, and rarely traditional. My imagination lends itself to daydreaming.
Iím inspired when around positive people. My inspiration comes from within. I am good at motivating others and providing support. I enjoy working with others, yet prefer to figure things out on my own. I can be very creative and unlimited when developing new solutions. I am intellectually curious and enjoy mental stimulation. I tend to thoroughly research a matter before arriving at a decision.
I am a discerning person who is initially open to new ideas. I approach life with openness, taking everything in and then releasing whatever isnít appropriate for me. This often leads to a thorough analysis of everything new and a prejudice against anything similar to something already analyzed in the past. While my initial response to life is emotional, I generally donít trust my emotions, so I gather as much information as possible in order to make a logical decision. New experiences are vital to me: if personal expansion doesnít occur mentally, emotionally or spiritually, I will tend to expand physically through weight gain.
Expansion is absolutely essential to me. Restriction can motivate me to change, forcing me out of an untenable situation into an unknown physical, mental world. Then I can truly expand, taking in new experiences and creating an environment which is truly peaceful to me.
