The Core Emotional Issues of the Thalamus Body Type are Dependence, Failure
I am very sensitive to my physical and emotional surroundings. I listen closely, noticing things others miss. I am retain information well, and like for my environment to be very organized. I carefully deliberate before arriving at a clear decision. I learn easily and enjoy study. I am curious, highly intelligent, investigative and analytical, and enjoy deep conversations. Curious and observant, I am adventurous and love to explore, tempered only by my sense of caution. I seek experiences that I consider worthwhile.
I have a strong, inquiring mind and a need to understand how and why things are. I have a strong sense of observation and an ability to evaluation information. I procrastinate and deliberate when situations are vague or complicated – I prefer things to be black and white. I am unusually sensitive to vibration and sound, and music keeps me in touch with my emotions. When stressed I disconnect emotionally, and music can reconnect me quickly and help me to release stress. Music can also stimulate and energize me.
I am known for collecting and evaluating information. I like to be effective and tend to be a perfectionist. I am open minded and willing to change. Music is important, providing a direct link to my emotions. I am fulfilled by being rather than by doing. My greatest satisfaction comes from being effective, or being worthwhile, as more of an internal than an external experience. I have a strong mental sense, and love to gather information and store it away for future reference. Research is second nature to me. My spiritual side is reflected in my strong auditory sense, and I am highly responsive to music and sensitive to sound.
