The Core Emotional Issues of the Lymph Body Type are (Being) Left behind, Identity
I am strong, well-coordinated, athletic and health conscious. I thrive on constant stimulation. I am mentally stimulated by learning. Creative and artistic, I express myself imaginatively and with movement. I am considered very attractive with a naturally well-proportioned and well-defined body. My appearance is very important to me. Extroverted and sociable, I add excitement to whatever I do. I am romantically inclined, and come on strong when beginning new relationships.
Optimistically, I throw myself totally into new relationships, viewing it idealistically. I like to be “up front” and typically reveal more about myself than appropriate early in the relationship. I have a need to be reassured that I’m loved and appreciated. Without this, feelings of inadequacy or self-doubts may surface, putting strain on the relationship. I like to keep things fresh, new and active, and moving residence adds spice to my life – I tend to move often.
I am playful, bright and quick-witted. I have a strong desire for physical exercise. I thrive on excitement, variety and change. I need continual stimulation in the form of movement and change to add variety to life. I require lots of variety through physical movement or mental stimulation to maintain mental clarity and a sense of vitality. Fun loving and playful, I am happiest when I feel excitement. Activity allows me to feel vibrant and alive. Excitement keeps me moving, active and alive. Without physical or mental stimulation, I become depressed which in turn brings emotional pain to the surface and motivates me to move out of my depressed state. I am mentally quick and alert, and learning provides a sense of fulfillment. Health and physical attractiveness are a high priority to me.
