Personal DNA how you relate to others: You are RESERVED – you aren’t someone who always needs to have others around, and you find you can handle most situations on your own. You can be very happy spending time alone, and enjoy your own thoughts and ideas. You find it difficult to understand why some people get so emotional and tell everyone else their problems. You believe that if you want to get something done, it is best to do it yourself. In your experience, other people are not always completely dependable, so you generally rely on yourself and only a few close others.

Despite your independence, you are not a closed-minded person who makes hasty judgments about others. You know that it isn’t always easy to walk in other people’s shoes. At times other people’s feelings are puzzling to you, and you wish that people were more rational. Your vision of the world is complex – your values are not set in stone. Instead, you are able to change your beliefs as you learn new information.

If you want to be different: Try applying your creativity to more artistic arenas, and letting your imagination take less practical forms. Even though it is tiring, making an extra effort to spend time with others even when you feel like being alone can have powerful positive effects on your relationships. Practice talking about yourself to people you haven’t previously trusted. You will forge friendships where you wouldn’t have thought possible, and with practice, sharing your thoughts and feelings will get easier and easier.
