d8 Personality Trait
1 I'm obsessed with relationships whether they're mine or someone else's. I love to talk about who's dating who, who cheated on who, and what my sweetheart and I are doing this weekend. Unless we break up. Do you think we'll break up?
2 I admire an intellectual giant and bring him/her up frequently in conversation.
3 School is my whole world. I'd rather be here, or at least with these people, than anywhere else.
4 I try to do everything extremely well, which means that I don't have a lot of time for chit-chat.
5 I have a lot of interests which help me to get along with anyone. I'm good at fitting in with every crowd.
6 I believe that everyone should get good grades. If people just did the homework they'd pass.
7 School is a social Petri dish and I like to experiment with various stimuli.
8 I have trouble seeing school as that important in the big scheme of things. I'm much more concerned with what I can learn than what my grades are.
d6 Ideal
1 Friendly. I look out for the people who are outcast. Everybody needs a friend. (Good)
2 Self-Esteem. Everyone is going through something. I try to lift them up however I can. (Good)
3 Accelerated. Grades are the most important thing in the world. That's why mine are straight As. (Lawful)
4 Focused. I'm here to learn. I'm not interested in why other people showed up. (Neutral)

1 I admire my teachers and want to prove myself them.

d6 Flaw

2 I live in the shadow of an older, smarter, and better-looking sibling who I'm certain everyone compares me to.
