Especially when it comes to marriage (read: doormat). Avoid marriage at all cost for your own benefit.

                Positive Traits
                -------------------
                Life of the Party
                You thrive on social energy, so constantly you find yourself as the center of attention at some party or another. Whether it's telling a story, playing video games, or some other crazy nonsense, pretty much everyone remembers you at the end of the night and pretty much everyone wants to hang out with you again.

                Unstoppable Force
                You grind hard all day every day, no one and thing can stop you from achieving your dreams. You wrote two books and damned be the one that gets in your way. The career of your dreams, the life you imagine behind your eyes, all that is just one solid day's work away.

                Foodie
                The list of things you won't eat is short. Like, real short. Red meat, sushi, vegan meals, salads, chicken, fish, just about everything is fair game for consumption and you're not afraid to try new foods. Classy restaurants, dive bars, if it's new you want to eat it.

                Negative Traits
                --------------------
                Bad Genes
                Due entirely to forces outside of your control, you are a bit of an emotional pendulum. From joy to crying mess in no seconds flat, you're a little all over the place. This makes it dangerous to get too high or too low, as spiraling can happen in both directions and both are bad.

                Depression
                You suffer from Major Depressive Disorder, diagnosed after your mental and emotional meltdown. When you're good you're good, but when you're bad it's pretty much the worst thing in the world. That little voice telling you that you don't deserve to be happy and that you deserve all the bad things that happen to you is pretty much the worst.

                Paranoid Anxiety
                You overthink everything, and you always feel like people are talking about you behind your back. That makes you confrontational toward other people, but also you shut down emotionally when someone has a confrontation with you out of nowhere. Basically, you're always on-edge when in reality there is usually nothing to worry about.

                Neutral Traits
                ------------------
                One Problem At A Time
                You can solve every problem in front of you, but you can only solve one problem at a time. Eisenhower Squares are your favorite tool when it comes to prioritizing tasks in this fashion and you use it religiously in both work and personal settings.

                        --------------------
                        Gift of Gab
                        - Whether it's the relative merits of various types of wood for flooring or the latest in astrophysics, you are able to discuss nearly anything with anyone. A born conversationalist and able to make people laugh, you are the adornment of any party. Significant bonus to charisma.

                        Analytic Mind
                        - People, mechanisms, human cultural patterns, soufflés... you love to figure out how things work. No subject is too inane or complex to attract your interest. Bonus to reasoning.

                        Literary Flair
                        - You are a maestro with words, and can bend them to your will. Whether it's marketing material or a fiction novel, you've got it covered. Minor bonus to charisma and reasoning.

                        Negative Traits
                        --------------------
                        Intolerant of Weakness
                        - Everyone faces challenges, be they societal, personal, mental, or physiological. You feel these challenges should be celebrated for being overcame, not to justify by having succumbed. Penalty to empathy.

                        Forgetful
                        - If you don't write it down, you don't remember it. Your memory is so bad that you sometimes operate amid a fog, ranging from the cluelessly adorable to the functionally incompetent. Significant penalty to memory.

                        Blinders
                        - You can quickly assess any situation and understand the causes for events... except for your interactions with others. You tend to see the best in others, even that kind gentleman who is approaching you menacingly because of a leg injury and who is only holding that gun for a friend... Significant penalty to perception.

                        Neutral Traits
                        --------------------
                        Classical Mentality
                        - You have a strong historical perspective and recognize that "new ideas" are really just rehashes of failed concepts in the past. While this gives you the ability to remain calm and even-keeled among any sort of hardship, it also makes you contemptuous of modern thinking. Bonus to judgment and reasoning. Significant penalty to empathy.
                        Those who are afraid of the dark have never seen what the light can do.
