This character needs to feel like he’s living out of the ordinary. He considers himself a “warrior” of sorts, and he wants to feel like one. Sometimes, his need for adventure will out-weigh his affection for others. He’s entertaining, fun-loving, daring, and a little… out of the norm. As a child, this character will seem very bold, and he’ll be more willing to take risks then some of his friends.
Here is a brief excerpt from a story, characterizing the “adventurous” personality types:
“Nineteen years of age and loving life, he thought the museum was a waste of his time. He had better things to do. He loved a rush, and had repeatedly put his life in danger trying to get that which he yearned so much. Nothing in the tangible world could satisfy his thirst. He needed more. Needed to break the boundaries and greet the impossible.
Only… he didn’t understand what it was that he wanted so badly. He thought: Adrenaline. That was all, and it never satisfied.”

The adventurous personality frequently yearns for some source of adrenaline, or excitement. To find this source, the character will often do things that other characters would be scared to.
These characters are not reliant on others, and they’re not easy for others to rely on. They tend to expect the same of other people.
This character has a way with people. He tends to be very influential.
This character possesses a need to keep moving, to travel. He quickly becomes bored with familiar surroundings, and wants for more.
The adventurer lives in the present. He tends not to worry about the past, or the future. Life is meant to be lived in the moment.
By no means are they cowardly. They always have a willingness to stand up for themselves, and to do what’s necessary to move forward.
