    Naturalist

    The Renaissance ideal

    The leading thinkers of the Renaissance were not just experts in their own field. The renaissance scholar was expected to master all branches of knowledge.

    With his insatiable desire to know everything, Leonardo da Vinci is often held up as the ideal Renaissance man.

    Naturalist Thinkers:
    Like to understand the natural world, and the living beings that inhabit it
    have an aptitude for communicating with animals
    You try to understand patterns of life and natural forces

    Like other Naturalist thinkers, Leonardo longed to spend time in the countryside. He spent hours watching birds to understand how they flew. Other Naturalist thinkers include
    Charles Darwin, Jane Goodall, Johnny Morris, David Attenborough

    Careers which suit Naturalist thinkers include
    Biologist, Meteorologist, Forester, Farmer, Astronomer, Alternative therapist

    (i know i'm also spatial/visual as well as kinaesthetic) i've studied a lot about MI.

    that is what i was getting at. if there is an inescapable appropriation that is required in the act of understanding, this brings into question the validity of socionics in describing what is real, and hence stubborn contradictions that continue to plague me.

    Existential...

    Yeah I'm like that. I just like to quietly spend hours upon hours thinking about the world and the right thing to do, but very slow to any actual action. I could use some here and now lovin' at times though I still will revert back to my natural state when given half the chance.

    from the other types' descriptions, I could as easily have been intrapersonal or kinaesthetic.
