Maverick

Energetic, creative and individualistic, Mavericks live life by their own rules. Viewing life as a self-serve buffet as opposed to an a la carte menu, they want to experience everything and inspire others to do the same. Your life is the type that makes others turn green with envy when they stalk you on Facebook. Ballroom dancing on Mondays, French cooking on Tuesdays, Skiing on Wednesdays and so on. You keep your life jam-packed with hobbies that allow you to learn new things and meet new people. You’re always looking for the next big challenge, which may mean you have a few unfinished projects lying around (like that time you took up home brewing three years ago). Some may think you’re scatterbrained, but you simply love life and live for variety. Carpe diem!
HOW THIS ARCHETYPES WORKS WITH OTHERS

Advocate

Partly cloudly

The security-loving Advocate may not quite understand the Maverick, who truly believes variety is the spice of life. Very different in their attitudes and approaches, these two might end up in a few debates - but they'll always be respectful thanks to the Maverick's open-mindedness. While this pair might be different, won't actually hurt each other if the Advocate can be patient with the Maverick's controlled chaos.

Caretaker

Partly cloudly

Although the independent, novelty-seeking Maverick and the steady, empathic Caretaker appear (and are) quite different from each other, these two share a love of socializing. Despite having very different work styles, they're likely to respect each other's views unless a direct conflict arises. In that case, the Maverick will likely overpower the less assertive Caretaker.

Dreamer

Partly cloudly

While the Dreamer and Maverick are both creative and curious at heart, the Maverick is more self-motivated, whereas the Dreamer will likely sacrifice to ensure everyone is treated fairly. Because of this difference, these two are unlikely to get along socially, but they have the potential to become a dynamic duo on projects that require creative problem-solving.

Go-Getter

Sunshine and roses

The Go-Getter and Maverick love to attack life at breakneck speed. While these two have a few differences in principles, their mutual love of variety is dizzying - in fact, they're likely to inspire each other by sharing crazy new ideas. Put these two together and watch them take over the world!

Humanitarian

Partly cloudly

The energetic Maverick may find the Humanitarian's love of routine boring - and on the flip side, when faced with the mercurial Maverick, the staid Humanitarian will shake his or her head in disapproval. When put together, these two definitely make an odd couple. Then again, we might find the variety-loving Maverick joining the Humanitarian on some weekend volunteer projects...

Idealist

Partly cloudly

While their shared creative and curious thinking style might make for great brainstorming sessions, you won't find the Idealist and Maverick meeting up for happy hour drinks any time soon. In fact, the Maverick's exuberant independence, love of risk and extreme extraversion may leave the introspective and laid-back Idealist feeling slightly shell-shocked.

Inventor

Sunshine and roses

Throw these two into a cubicle and the ideas will flow like H2O from the office water cooler. Sharing a creative approach and many intellectual interests, the Inventor and Maverick will have plenty to talk about. For pure idea generation, there is probably no better team - although you might need to throw a more practical mind into the mix in order to get those ideas executed.

Mastermind

Smooth sailing

Ready to take on the world, this driven duo share many values, differing only in their thinking styles. The creative, open-minded Maverick wants to try everything, whereas the single-minded Mastermind feels that 'everything' presents far too many distractions. Nonetheless, these two will get along just fine!

Maverick

Sunshine and roses

As highly energetic people with many interests, these two are likely to find common ground and will enjoy working well together – so much so, in fact, that we're apt to find them hanging out together after hours. On the downside, these two get bored easily and may bring out each other's mischievous side when work is boring and routine. These two may end up competing with each other for the role of office prankster!

Protector

Smooth sailing

While these two will bond over their independent "against the grain" approach to life, the Protector may feel that the outgoing Maverick should put his/her tremendous energy to more socially responsible use, and the Maverick may wish that the introverted Protector was a little more enthusiastic about creative problem-solving. Nonetheless, these two will work together without too many sparks flying.

Rock

Cloudy with a chance of conflict

While the Maverick has a multitude of hobbies and interests that are downright inspiring, this "a la carte" approach to life is likely to confuse the Rock, who loves the tried-and-true and familiar. On the flip side, the Rock's "buckle down" attitude may leave the Maverick feeling stifled.

Socialite

Sunshine and roses

Hold on to your seat, kids! The Maverick and Socialite are both novelty-loving sensation-seekers, always looking for the next opportunity. True, the nature of these sought-after opportunities is apt to be different. Nonetheless, this life-loving duo will understand each other perfectly and will likely become partners in crime.

Straight Shooter

Cloudy with a chance of conflict

This headstrong duo is apt to butt heads thanks to their shared assertive independence. The Maverick will likely find the Straight Shooter too conservative, whereas the Straight Shooter will likely perceive the Maverick as flighty and unreliable. An association between these two is likely to involve little mutual trust and potential fireworks. BOOM!

Strategist

Sunshine and roses

Sometimes opposites really do attract! Where the Strategist thrives on planning, the Maverick lives for variety - but despite their differences, these two should have no problem being good friends both at work and outside it thanks to their shared curiosity! These two will respect each other's differences and will work together in a complementary way without much conflict.

Technician

Partly cloudly

Although sharing an appetite for variety, the Technician is likely to be put off by the Maverick's super-sociable, creative nature. They might work together just fine, but we're not likely to find these two socializing... unless they're skydiving, that is.

Visionary

Sunshine and roses

Like twins separated at birth, only the most minor of differences separate the Visionary and the Maverick. Both are assertive, independent souls who love new ideas and experiences - the only difference being that the Maverick is slightly more interested in the human equation than the more cerebral Visionary. This duo will make a perfect, creative team, able to generate innovative, quirky solutions to complex problems.
