The Characters

I have discovered a set of sixteen characters. A character pulls on a set of four different masks or types of behaviour to deal with everyday situation. You can have an outgoing or analytical character, or a positive or critical one. You may have a inquisitive or traditional role or a decisive or flexible one. One character is the outgoing, inquisitive, positive and decisive type (++++) and the other is the analytical, traditional, critical and flexible one (—-)
