Background depicting an imagined scenario in the life of a Pathfinder.
nfxv | Possibilities


Not all who wander are lost. To Pathfinders, life is a constant game of hide-and-seek. Meaningful possibilities lay quietly unseen to the casual observer, but not for Pathfinders. They strive to find every one of them, hoping to uncover the mysteries that have been kept away for so long. Curious, creative, and full of heart, Pathfinders are the wanderers who will never stop roaming until they have taken their final breath.

I think everybody's weird. We should all celebrate our individuality and not be embarrassed or ashamed of it.

Paths are not just roads to be walked on; they are journeys, passages, and windows to the new. Most people follow paths laid out by others, but Pathfinders are not most people. They forge their own paths, knowing that it will lead them to perspectives that they have never seen before. The best sceneries often lie along the roads less traveled, and Pathfinders welcome every detour as a chance for discovery.

Inherent Nature Of The Pathfinder

The world is vast, its possibilities endless. Although it might seem impossible for Pathfinders to explore them all, that doesn't stop them from trying. Every sunrise signals not only a new day, but also a new opportunity to explore fresh possibilities. Ideas are everywhere, and Pathfinders are on a hunt for as many as they can find. Wherever the limits are drawn, Pathfinders are sure to strive beyond that.

Everything begins with an idea. Luckily for Pathfinders, there's no shortage of them. Their minds run wild with imagination, allowing them to see a myriad of ideas in every direction. Things that others pass off as insignificant, spark realms of possibilities in the eyes of Pathfinders. Never failing to think outside the box, Pathfinders are
a force of creativity that will never run out of momentum.

If you've ever met someone who can't help but jump from one idea
to another, look no further because that's a Pathfinder! They take an interest in a variety of events happening across the globe, and often talk about ideas that are held closely to their hearts. Their ideas may sometimes seem out of this world, but hey, you cannot achieve big unless you dare to dream big.

Everything begins with an idea.

As the Pathfinder's likes are shaped by their instincts, so are their aversions. Pathfinders see the world as a canvas, a blank slate ready to be filled with their boundless imagination. Sadly, societal norms often stifle creativity, stopping Pathfinders from expressing their ideas meaningfully. That's why they reject restrictions that dull the rich colors of life. Ultimately, Pathfinders will never conform to senseless rules, even if it means going against the world.

In addition, Pathfinders are birds who yearn to fly free; their voices sing out for the liberty to explore. Thus, they cannot bear the thought of being trapped in a cage of repetition, ensnared by soul-crushing routines. In the end, if it comes down to a choice, Pathfinders would rather give up everything, than lose the freedom to explore whenever, wherever. Nonetheless, although it is natural for Pathfinders 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.

It's gonna be okay, and you may feel
like you're super weird right now but later
it'll pay off… Whatever dreams or boundaries
you set upon yourself, real life can be
so much bigger than that.


When it comes to Pathfinders, they see the journey of life as an endless adventure—a treasure map of infinite possibilities. Each bend presents an exciting opportunity to uncover new perspectives. Surely, there will be bumps along the way. But with an unwavering spirit, Pathfinders will never lose sight of the meaningful ideas that lie ahead. As such, the Pathfinders' quest for discovery is never-ending, for as long as they breathe, it will not come to a full stop.

While it may seem that the motivations behind the behavior of Pathfinders are complex, a closer look reveals that they are not as complicated as they seem to be. Each of us possess innate desires that guide our actions and define our personalities. And that is what we will be exploring in the next section, our core motivations, to gain a deeper perspective and understanding of our inner drives.
