really want to say to that person?
The personality types are:
• Salted Peanuts: dramatic extroverts who crave novelty and
thrive as the center of attention. They are easily bored with the usual
routine, and while charming in social situations, are sensitive to
criticism and rejection. These are people to take to a party. They
probably love roller coasters and karaoke.
• Almonds: scrupulous, conscientious, moral perfectionists who
have high standards for themselves and others. While intensely
motivated, they tend to become over-committed at work or home, taking on
more projects than they can comfortably complete. Hands-on approach to
problems makes almond-lovers ideal workers.
• Pecans: devoted, loyal, true friends. Overly generous, pecan
lovers will consider others needs before their own. Dependable, they are
most comfortable with the usual routines of life. They are tenacious,
committed team players who don’t require adulation, being satisfied
sharing accolades with their friends, family or co-workers.
• Cashews: empathic, easy-going, and well adjusted. Cashew lovers
make the perfect spouse or parent. Calm and level-headed, they can be
depended upon in times of crisis or emergency. A cashew is a good person
to have around when the plumbing goes awry or the lights go out. A
cashew just knows what to do.
• Walnuts: aggressive, achievement-oriented, natural leaders.
Competitive, successful, driven, intolerant of defeat. Walnut lovers
demand the best at work and at home. They are easily irritated with the
routine side of life. They cannot tolerate life’s inconveniences such as
being stuck in rush hour traffic or waiting in long lines.
