    Fwiw, in many spiritual movements, Fire= actions, doing, passion etc, Water= emotions, Wind= thoughts and Earth= stability, wealth, prosperity.

    So while I am surprised by my earth score, I don't think my Water score is out of place. I don't see Water as T.

    EDIT: The author seems to agree...


    Water Personality - Creativity, Intuition, and Knowledge

    Water is a high emotional-energy element with abstract thought processes and a creative flair for solving problems. They are sensitive to others' emotions and appreciate beauty, art, and new ideas.
    No, in classic temperament theory, it was

    Earth=Melancholic (cold, dry)
    Air=Sanguine (warm, wet)
    Fire=Choleric (hot, dry)
    Water=Phlegmatic (cold, wet)

    In type theory, it's gotten mixed up, because of Keirsey's misconnection of the temperaments (mixing up Choleric and Phlegmatic, and then Choleric ends up as water and Sanguine as fire, etc).

    In making the connection to type, also remember not only the Keirsey groups, but also the Interaction Styles correspond to the temperaments as well. Hence INFJ's having strong Earth, because INJ=Chart the Course=Melancholic. (I also see an INFP, which is very Phlegmatic, with strong water. But then there's an INFJ with strong water as well, so who knows with that one).

    Fire Personality

    Energy, Strength, and Success



    58% Fire
    45% Earth
    42% Wind
    21% Water

    Having fire as your dominant nature, means you thrive on energy. When you live a balanced life, you are likely to be strong-willed and know exactly how to get what you want. You prefer facts and figures over feelings and emotions, and you can assess yourself critically, though you prefer it that others do not criticize you. You are a strategic thinker, a planner, and a problem solver. Where others might hesitate to state their opinion, you bear a natural self-confidence that allows you to explore your full potential. Professions such as doctors, scientists, inventors, engineers, and architects share this personality trait, among others. However, you are not limited to these fields, as your strength and energy can liven up any career.

    Fire personalities tend to be more interested in activities related to knowledge and thinking. Games like chess or puzzles allow them to express their natural tendency towards logic, where they are most comfortable. They relish in competition, especially physical activity that requires great strength, and are always ready for action. They are not overtly sensitive to others needs, but fire personalities are exciting and confident and can establish relationships if theyre careful not to come across as too aggressive or stubborn.

    Try getting in touch with your emotions to balance out your personality, or maybe sit down with a friend and have a good talk where you do more listening than talking. As a fire personality, you might enjoy the sound of your own voice, but what have you got to lose if you give listening a try? You might discover new perspectives or information that will help you achieve your goals.

    You are an exciting and powerful force on the earth. Your energy inspires constant change and growth in others, which brings a freshness to the environment around you. Keep living life to the fullest, keep achieving your goals, and motivate others to live fully with you!


    And just if you're curious about the other elements, here are brief summaries:


    Water Personality - Creativity, Intuition, and Knowledge

    Water is a high emotional-energy element with abstract thought processes and a creative flair for solving problems. They are sensitive to others' emotions and appreciate beauty, art, and new ideas.


    Earth Personality - Stability, Compassion, and Practicality

    Earth is an emotionally stable element with a great sense of practicality / logic when solving problems. They appreciate order and tradition, and are loyal / have compassion for others.


    Wind Personality - Playfulness, Spontaneity, and Excitement

    Wind is an easy-going, low-emotional energy element with an openness to new ideas and abstract manner when solving problems. They enjoy free and casual relationships, and appreciate spontaneity, excitement, and variety.

    True, this is most accurate.

    If you felt as though some of the information about the Wind Personality wasn't exactly like yourself, then here is some information about the other elements' energy levels, thinking patterns, and relationship styles that might appear in your personality.

    21/100 You scored 43% on Water, higher than 21% of your peers.
    40/100 You scored 42% on Earth, higher than 40% of your peers.
    42/100 You scored 38% on Wind, higher than 42% of your peers.

    Fire's Relation to Water ~ you are 34% Fire
    - high emotional energy
    - excitable
    - deep thinker / daydreamer

    Wind's Relation to Water ~ you are 38% Wind

    - enjoys creative expression

    Earth's Relation to Water ~ you are 42% Earth

    What are some of the differences between the Water Personality and the other elements?
    If you felt as though some of the information about the Water Personality wasn't exactly like yourself, then here is some information about the other elements' energy levels, thinking patterns, and relationship styles that might appear in your personality.

    Fire's Differences from Water ~ you are 34% Fire
    - Fire prefers concrete facts and figures
    - Fire has a structured belief / religious system and sticks to it
    - Fire prefers to talk than to listen, and is less in-tune with others' feelings

    Wind's Differences from Water ~ you are 38% Wind
    - Wind is relaxed and carefree
    - Wind enjoys casual or open relationships
    - Wind is emotionally stable or even apathetic

    Earth's Differences from Water ~ you are 42% Earth
    - Earth prefers to stick to real, hard facts and what can be sensed
    - Earth is a calm and emotionally stable element
    - Earth is traditional and conventional

    I think they have switched some of the characteristics. Like the "relaxed and carefree" vs "high emotional energy/exciteable". Not sure which came first, but I could see the connection to Keirsey's matching of them now.

    Water Personality
    Creativity, Intuition, and Knowledge



    With water as your dominant nature, you are adept at working with your senses and are a highly creative individual. You are open to new ideas and think fast on your feet, always taking the well being of others into consideration when you make a decision. You are likely devoted to making things the best they can be, and your flexibility and impulsivity open you up to try anything just to learn and grow. Professions such as artists, writers, actors, advertising professionals generally share water as their dominant element, though other careers can incorporate this element into their field. You will bring abstract thinking and a natural sociability to your work.



    Water elements are prone to being highly sociable. Even if they are introverted, they enjoy investing in relationships and take time to understand the people around them. Water personalities have a unique ability to remember peoples feelings, which enables them to avoid hurting others. A sense of wonder, openness to new ideas, and hunger to learn new things are all hallmarks of the water element, along with an appreciation for art, music, and beauty. In excess, however, their natural altruistic nature can lead them to become paranoid or too devoted to others to the point that they overlook their own well-being.



    If youre an extroverted water personality, try spending some time alone once in a while. Its not a punishment! Youll give your brain some time to recharge. Introverted water personalities, because of your desire to learn and intense curiosity, you might overload your brain. Introverted or extroverted, its important to give yourself time to relax and recharge. Read a book, practice meditation (become an observer of your surroundings and your thoughts), or go for a walk. Water personalities need peace to balance out their high energy nature.

    No matter what, always continue to explore the world and share your sense of curiosity with others. Your thirst for new ideas, your desire to express your feelings, your creative approach to problems, and your ability to share emotional bonds with others makes you a remarkable and inspiring person.

    It's weird though, because it just seemed like a lot of the questions were dealing with feeling aspects of response. I didn't see a lot potential for thinking aspects. I usually live my life a lot deeper than what any of the questions were referring to. Anyway, I don't think the profile or questions were so accurately significant to me.

    ^ It looks like this test has mixed iNtuition and Feeling up as both parts of the "Water" personality.

    Kind of an oversimplification if you ask me.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
