About

man icon

According to a Visual DNA test my level of openness suggests that I draw my strength from tradition and familiarity. I'm down to earth and prefer clear, straightforward direction to abstract or theoretical thinking.

I'm good at thinking through my actions before acting on an impulse. This helps me to avoid unnecessary stress or trouble, but it can also lead to workaholic and perfectionist extremes. My level of extraversion suggests that I'm more likely to be more reserved at first, I enjoy time alone and value maintaining strong relationships with close friends.

I value getting along with others, I'm considerate, friendly, and willing to compromise my interests for the benefit of the group around me. As a result I tend to be very popular. I'm calm, emotionally stable and are less easily upset than people with high levels of neuroticism.

On my spear time I enjoy going to the movies with friends or just hang out with my family. Having that said the gym is probably among my closest friends; It's important for me to stay in shape and working out really boosts my energy and make me feel great.

Other interests are biking, hiking, cross country- and downhill skiing. I like to discover new destinations and try to travel as much as I can. There are many interesting cultures out there. But I don't need to go abroad for vacations, a trip to the summer house or to the mountains could be both fun with friends or alone.
