Some Intellectualizing C**t blog[2]

Pleasant, takes things lightly. Considerate. Easy going. Comforting, soft, but there’s still a high emphasis on achievements. Avoids stirring up drama and instead constantly looks at the positives, sometimes going out of their way to avoid acknowledging the negatives. People person even though they can seem pretty quiet. Thoughtful, watches from behind the scenes and in this way, learns how to gain recognition as well.
