Protector

  • Although you enjoy people, you work best on your own and tend to need alone time to recharge. An introvert, you have a rich inner world and tend to hold your cards close to your chest. As an individualist, you prefer to follow your own path in life. When something is important to you, you exude more passion than soap opera stars in a love triangle. Ever the peacekeeper, You’re concerned for the feelings of others and abhor confrontation, avoiding it at all costs. You rely heavily on your intuition and insight – and they’re so precise, you could put any storefront psychic to shame. Thankfully, we’ll never find you running a psychic hotline – your strong moral compass would never allow it.

You’re a bit of a perfectionist, which means that you tend to produce great results – but on the flip side, you can become extremely frustrated when you’re not able to achieve the desired result.
