My True Colors

Benton P. 4th hour


My childhood was weird and stupid for most of it. I was extremely imaginative and found it difficult to fit into the structure of school life. I reacted with great sensitivity to discordance or rejection and sought recognition. I responded to encouragement rather than competition. I appeared to be older than my years and focused on my greater interests, achieving in subjects that were mentally stimulating. I was impatient with drill and routine, questioned authority, and found it necessary to respect teachers before I could learn from them.


I seek harmonious relationships. I am a true romantic and believe in drama, warmth, and empathy to all relationships. I enjoy the symbols of romance such as flowers, candlelight, and music and cherish the small gestures of affection. I prefer to let my head rule my heart. I dislike repetition, so it is difficult for me to continuously express feeling. I believe that once feelings are stated, they are obvious to others. I am uneasy when my emotions control me; I want to establish a relationship, leave it to maintain itself, and turn my energies to my studies, work or other interests.


I am conceptual and an independent thinker. For me, work is play. I am drawn to constant challenge in careers, and like to develop models, explore ideas, or build systems to satisfy my need to deal with innovation. Once I have perfected an idea, I prefer to move on, leaving the project to be maintained and supported by others. I have a strong desire to influence others so they may lead more significant lives. I often work in the arts, communication, education, and helping professions. I am adept at motivating and interacting with others.
