Characteristics of a Harmony-seeking Idealist:

Harmony-seeking Idealists like you are characterized by a complex personality and an abundance of thoughts and feelings. You are a warm-hearted person by nature. You are sympathetic and understanding. You expect a lot of yourself and of others. You have a strong understanding of human nature and you are a good judge of character.

But you are mostly reserved and confide your thoughts and feelings to very few people you trust. You are deeply hurt by rejection or criticism. Harmony-seeking Idealists find conflict situations unpleasant and prefer harmonious relationships. However, if reaching a certain target is very important to you, you can assert yourself with a doggedness bordering on obstinacy.

Harmony-seeking Idealists have a lively fantasy, often an almost clairvoyant intuition and are often very creative. Once you have tackled a project, you do everything in your power to achieve your goals. In everyday life, you often prove to be an excellent problem solver. You like to get to the root of things and you have a natural curiosity and a thirst for knowledge. At the same time, you are practically oriented, well organized and in a position to tackle complex situations in a structured and carefully considered manner. When you concentrate on something, you do so one hundred percent—you often become so immersed in a task that you forget everything else around you. That is the secret of your often very large professional success.

As a Harmony-seeking Idealist you are one of the introverted personality types. Therefore you prefer a quiet work environment where you can intensively deal with your responsibilities and are not disturbed by too many people and repeated distractions. You need a lot of time to dwell on your thoughts, to put them into words and let your ideas take shape. You are grateful for a certain measure of order and structure in order to achieve this, and being able to deal with one project after the other, thus not having a number of responsibilities at one time. You don’t like being overloaded because it is important to you to deal with things thoroughly. Your capability to concentrate is unusually great and very often you become engrossed in something and forget everything around you.

You are one of the feeler types. This fact is partially the reason that you have a very strong insight into human nature and enjoy dealing with people. You are interested in the people around you and have a real sense for their motivations, needs and abilities. Your talent to see the best in everybody and your keen wish to understand others and somehow contribute to their well-being predestine you to work with people.

Due to your propensity to be introverted you are not into holding major speeches for large audiences. Your real strength lies in working individually with people like therapists, physicians or priests. In those professions, when advancing others in their personal development or to help them in any other way is the issue, you are unbeatable. You are extremely sensitive, and your social competences are developed above average. As a result you have no problems working with people or being a team member. Still, you should watch out to primarily surround yourself with persons who are similarly profound and eclectic. During the working day you abhor thoughtless, superficial, and insensitive colleagues.

As partners, Harmony-seeking Idealists are loyal and reliable; a permanent relationship is very important to you. You seldom fall in love head over heels nor do you like quick affairs. You sometimes find it very difficult to clearly show your affection although your feelings are deep and sincere. In as far as your circle of friends is concerned, your motto is: “Less is more”. As far as new contacts are concerned, you are approachable to only a limited extent; you prefer to put your energy into just a few, close friendships. Your demands on friends and partners are very high. As you do not like conflicts, you hesitate for some time before raising unsatisfactory issues and, when you do, you make every effort not to hurt anyone as a result.

Even if you can fall head over heels in love—like all Idealists—all in all you are still the reserved personality type. With you it takes a relatively long time until your counterpart has figured out that you have developed a romantic interest in him/her. You only show your feelings when you are very sure of yourself and the prospects for the relationship. In matters of love the word “flighty” is not a part of your dictionary. You incredulously notice affairs of others and can’t imagine how anyone can play that furiously with their own and the feelings of others. You are a very consistent and faithful person and you are looking for a partner like that—sometimes it takes a very long time.

When you are too reserved and hesitate too long before you really trust someone to open up to him/her, you make it very difficult for potential prospects. There is no question that your personality is one of the most complex and complicated types around. So it is no wonder that less complicated types sometimes become demoralized and give up before your flirtation has gained momentum.

Once you have committed yourself to a partner, it is for life. There is no going back. Since a relationship is that important to you, one of your most important goals in life is to keep the given promise. Your obligation is sacred and you expect your partner to feel the same way. Because it was difficult for you to trust, you have a real problem forgiving a betrayal of confidence like an affair as well as other behaviors that you see as treachery. All your aspirations are focused to form emotional oneness with your partner and to merge with him/her as much as is humanly possible. If your partner feels as you do and opens himself/herself up to you, it can form the basis for a close and exclusive relationship. You run the risk of disappointment and hurt though, if you give your love to someone who wants no part of this intimacy. For you, it is either all or nothing.
