The Scout Type
The scout is always putting something new on the table. They are observant and always up to date with the latest trends and events. They know what is going on and have good eyes, and like to share and put things out there and make things. Most of all, the scout tends to strike people as experienced and seasoned.
You’ll be surprised to find out the extroverted sensing type has usually experienced and done a lot in life. They have been to many places and seen many things. They have had many jobs and know a lot about many different real-life situations. More negatively, the scout is sometimes known to struggle with the unknown.
The extroverted sensor wants proof in the world around them, and struggles when things are not explained. It is difficult for the extroverted sensor, who wants to touch, see, and hold, and know what is going on, to understand that there are things happening underneath the surface that other people do not or can’t share with or explain to them.
