People will experience The Idealist Performance Pattern as a reserved, conservative and principled person. They are private individuals that keep their personal issues and problems to themselves. Idealists are generally overly cautious and don’t give in to speculation or gossip, they will keep unfamiliar people at an arm’s length away or at least until people prove themselves non-judgmental and only then will Idealists let you into their private thought-space and even then you will not get everything no matter how long you have been friends making the Idealist even more mysterious to others.

While it may take them a long time to trust other people, once they do, it is a commitment for life. The Idealist has a wild imagination that if not kept under control will run wild and carrying them away off into their inquiring mind mysteriously wondering as they ponder the deeper meanings behind the world and of life.

Idealists will be very good at any financial endeavours as they have a natural gift and ability to intuitively identify patterns in economic markets, trends, or whatever expertise they have mastered. The Idealist will not acquire wealth for materialistic means, rather, attaining it for security; the more financial security is developed, the more certainty will be established and therefore encouraging behaviour will result. This in turn will settle their anxieties about the future so that they might enjoy delving deeper into the mysteries behind life.

The Idealist will have a love of art in some form or another whether it be film, music, sculpture, theatre or all of it. This passion and love will also give them a natural talent towards creative expressionism.

It doesn’t matter what The Idealist's emotional level is they will always appear calm and slightly detached on the surface not giving away the potential storm that may be brewing

beneath. They will very seldom let people see them cry and prefer to deal with their personal issues alone, behind closed doors and only discussing it with the one at most two people who they trust complicity, and even then this is a big task.

Idealists are typically spiritual seekers, not necessarily religious but can be, however, they will always look for a deeper meaning to life and most conversations. The Idealist has a mysterious look about them and even-though you may distance themselves from others, people will naturally gravitate towards them. This magnetic effect they have on other people immediately calms even the most nervous people down and subdues them, allowing people to feel safe in revealing their deepest secrets and confiding in you. Take note though and be aware, the Idealist may also get sick from not being able to fix the problems of those they care most about and will carry the burdens of others.

Partnerships are taken very seriously and a deep commitment and conservative values are at the forefront for the Idealist. In the reactive cycle this seemingly calm and collected

energy can turn turbulent. As anxiety levels heighten other people may experience their behaviour as becoming overly-controlling of the immediate environment. This ‘over-control’ gives the Idealist a false sense of security and is only there to appease the deep emotions they may be feeling.

The Idealist will prefer to retreat inwards becoming reclusive and processing introspectively and if continually pushed will reveal a radical increase in temperament that can literally drown others in emotional bitterness. They have perfected the art of the cold shoulder. Because of their extremely high values and standards, they may also harbour, grudges and appear aloof or cold in relationships even after breakups.

Underneath it all, the Idealist has a deep sensitivity that takes a long time to recover from any emotional traumas, however they would probably never admit to it.
