Life is like a present, full of surprises. Connectors live each and every day delighted by the marvels they unravel, sharing it with those around them. They carry colorful personalities that often inspire hope and positivity in others, while leaving a vibrant sense of creativity wherever they go. As such, being around them is like taking in a breath of life; it is sheer magic for the body and soul.

We are humans on a rock floating through space with a finite amount of time. So take that into account—how we treat ourselves, how we treat others and we are all in this together. Be excellent to each other!

Connectors bring not only ideas together, but people too. They view reality as one big giant web, where everyone and everything is linked together by a complex network of invisible threads. As such, no matter how scattered their ideas may seem to be, they can always find a way to connect the seemingly unconnected. To Connectors, there is no such thing as unrelated ideas, only undiscovered perspectives.

Inherent Nature Of The Connector

Born with an insatiable appetite for the unknown, Connectors are constantly on the lookout for new concepts. They zip tirelessly from idea to idea, exchanging their never-ending stream of thoughts with the people around them in hopes of stumbling upon more and more untapped possibilities. With a childlike sense of wonder, Connectors explore the world with everlasting enthusiasm, never tired of the endless mysteries that life has to offer.

As a dynamo for fun ideas, Connectors never fail to make a dull moment exciting. But more than just being fun, their ideas also have the power to broaden horizons. Connectors inspire those around them to seek fresh perspectives, so that they may see beyond what normally meets the eye. As long as one has an open mind, Connectors are always ready to fill it up with intriguing thoughts.

Connectors aren’t known to take themselves too seriously, which is why they love cracking goofy jokes for a good laugh. Starting many of their sentences with "What if...", Connectors are always sharing imaginative ideas that prompt others to think outside the box, so don’t be surprised if you hear them talk about ideas for a kangaroo boxing championship or conspiracy theories on dinosaurs. Sure, Connectors may be a little wild, but hey, life would be boring without a dash of craziness.

Everything begins with an idea.

As the Connector's likes are shaped by their instincts, so are their aversions. They find it absurd that society often shuts down new ideas simply because they are unheard of. To Connectors, the world is an infinite sea of possibility, but people's narrow-mindedness is like a massive dam, cutting off the surging flow of creativity. Needless to say, Connectors find it suffocating when their imaginations are bound by rigid conventions and outdated traditions.

In addition, Connectors seek to explore all things fun in life. As such,
it is an absolute nightmare for them to be trapped on a hamster wheel doing the same things over and over again. This makes fixed routines and tight schedules their kryptonite. Thus, Connectors go to great lengths to avoid them, as nothing is worse than being tied down by the mundane. Nonetheless, although it is natural for Connectors to dislike such situations, they should learn to be more accepting of them.

Now, with all that said, do note that these traits don’t make you better or worse than others. While some may feel disappointed with their given personality type, it is important to recognize that each type is unique in its own way. Only by understanding who we are, can we leverage our hidden talents—allowing us to unlock our fullest potential.

Pluck up your courage and take that risk! Add another story to the book of your life. Even if it doesn’t go the way you planned or wanted, you’ll still learn from it. Adventure!

When it comes to Connectors, they believe that one shouldn't limit themselves to the skies when a whole universe is out there. It is no wonder that they tend to hold imaginations that stretch far beyond what others can only fathom. With a youthful spirit and a mind full of ideas, they inspire hope even in moments of darkness. Ultimately, Connectors may never have a clear idea of what the future has in store, and that's perfect. Because when nothing is certain, everything is possible.

While it may seem that the motivations behind the behavior of Connectors are complex, a closer look reveals that they are not as complicated as they seem to be.
