Archetype for this state: Planners
Scriptwriters, Architects… People who have a strong tendency to this state focus on thoughts and are open to sympathy. Their attention goes to where novelty is. For them, being clever is more pressing than physical power or irrational passion. They enjoy creating ideas more than participating in physical activities. They feel comfortable in academic environments, but dislike routines. They will flirt with norms, and think of reasons to avoid labor and do what they want to do. They engage in arguments in search of possibilities and glitches in the system. They have set rules but are willing to sacrifice them to integrate surprise, illusion or accommodate others. A great deal of their analysis is targeted towards entertainment or conveying information. They can be impulsively driven by personal visions, sometimes overlooking physical abilities or repercussions. They are inspired by things that make sense or are in surprising order.
They have two tendencies towards introversion:
Being abstracted may cultivate timidity and passive aggression, and lead towards self-reliance.
Being resolute may cultivate righteousness and strictness, and maintain self-confidence.
People that are strongly theoretical are open to suggestions and affective exchanges, but they tend to be conditioned by reason, especially when accepting or applying ideas. They need some order and structure in order to feel creative. They like mastering convictions and laws in order to bend, interconnect or switch them. This makes them eloquent and dexterous with ideas, languages, calculations and systems in general, but can also make them snobbish.
