Thinker

You see problems clearly, using intelligence and creativity to overcome adversity, relying on your brain to meet challenges.

You know, Dex, I would have guessed you are a thinker. You are very analytical and thoughtful in how you express your opinions. Because of this quality, I pay attention to what you say.
