Well, it seems I am a Linguistic and Existential Thinker. I'm not sure what that means. I do love to talk, but I loath Satre :)

I'm a Renaissance Existential thinker:

Like to spend time thinking about philosophical issues such as "What is the meaning of life?"
Try to see beyond the 'here and now', and understand deeper meanings consider moral and ethical implications of problems as well as practical solutions

Like existential thinkers, Leonardo questioned man's role in the universe. Many of his paintings explored the relationship between man and God.

Careers which suit Existential Thinkers include
Philosopher, Religious leader, Head of state, Artist, Writer. So I'm really in the wrong career.

Naturalist sounds like you!

You are an Existential Thinker

Existential thinkers:

Thanks for pinging me on this MarMema. According to this I'm an Existential thinker! Just like The Buddha, Gandhi, Plato, Socrates, Martin Luther King. Perfect career for me would be: Philosopher, Religious leader, Head of state, Artist, Writer.

Damn that means I've spent all these years nursing for nothing...maybe I should go back to school and re educate myself, Heads of State do get a better pay than nurses. :))

Banal, mostly.

Just kidding...No, I'm trying to actually get beyond the idea stage of just one of the several novels I have dreamed, imagined or begun. The one I'm anxious to get written quickly is a counter-terrorism thriller. Allegedly.
