  • Deep thinkers – Serious, passionately involved in questioning their lives and all of Life
  • Deep creators – often our great writers, scientists, inventors, film makers.
  • Meaning and importance – they are not interested in chatter and wasting time. They are involved in worthwhile projects.
  • Anti-social – their inner world is what interests them.  Constantly researching, learning about unusual things
  • Natural authority figures – others turn to them for their knowledge, and the dignity of their presence
  • Anti-exercise – not interested in the body’s needs
  • Sense of frustration – seeing everything in complex ways makes putting their point across and explaining things difficult
  • The second intellectual type (Lunar type (1) is the other)
