You are driven to experience and appreciate beauty in all of its forms– the view of the clouds from the airplane, a piece of artwork, a human face, the sound of rain, the architecture of a bridge, or the taste of something cooked with skill to perfection. You drink in your surroundings as if it were a fine wine…which, by the way, you probably enjoy fine wine. Your love of shape and form makes traveling a delight as you move through new places with a sense of wonder and gratitude. However, it is sometimes difficult for you to engage in activities that others deem fun or worthwhile and when that happens it may be tempting for you withdraw. Financial planning can also be a challenge because you prefer to choose in the moment where to spend your time and money rather than stick to following the rules of pre-set categories. Due to the fact that every environment gives you the chance to observe, interact, experience and grow, you are actually quite flexible to make the most of the opportunities of the moment and place.

While traveling, Aesthetics need the freedom and time to wander and pause to take in the details. The sensory world is often the medium in which they explore their emotions, thoughts, and beliefs. Although they may require support in areas of organization and planning, the fact that they are not particular about making all the decisions makes them flexible travel companions. Aesthetics best serve through creative expression and helping others appreciate and strive for a rich and meaningful life.
Aesthetics typically travel well with the Seeker, Investigator, and The Nomad but may find the goal-oriented thinking of the Conquistador and Global Citizen difficult to adjust to in daily situations.
“All men are in some degree impressed by the face of the world, same men even to delight. This love of beauty is Taste. Others have the same love in such excess, that, not content with admiring, they seek to embody it in new forms. The creation of beauty is Art.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
