The 1/3 Profile

You are a restless soul, so I will endeavor to make this engaging enough to retain your interest;

otherwise, you'll be off in pursuit of the next stim­ulation in an endless search for stability and steady ground in a change­able world.

Despite an introspective side, you are an engaging and down to earth person with a profound and personal connection to the world, uncon­sciously thirsty for the juice of life, eager to learn and seeking the "lat­est, greatest, and newest."

As such, you have a tendency to enter into projects or relationships with an open yet inquisitive nature, forever try­ing to determine their quality and value before committing 100 percent.

Herein lies a first line deep insecurity: the fear that the rug could be pulled from under your feet at any moment.

When coupled with the unconscious noncommittal nature of the third line, this keeps you hop­ping, a cat on a hot tin roof.

Yet you are privately crying out for rock solid foundations and something to hold on to.

If something or someone doesn't feel secure, you will find fault, express boredom, or provide any excuse to disengage and retreat, some­times abruptly.

You don't like feeling hemmed in and you have an innate sense of what is and isn't working, be that a relationship or a project.

If we were engaged in conversation, I would notice a directness in your communication and an eagerness to get the point of the subject matter.

It is typical of your nature: getting to the bottom of things, absorbing, learning, taking away... and moving on.

Walk into any gathering and the first line in your profile will make direct contact, determining the foundations as the third line begins its engaging­ disengaging exploration, hungry to meet new people, hungry for experi­ence.

One minute, you'll be the social bee, the next minute, outta there!

Your eagerness for new things and people means you are liable to jump into projects and relationships and think later.

This is symptomatic of a slightly self absorbed, head down, driving forward approach that is oblivious to its impact on anyone else.

In this respect, you need to be watchful of cutting people dead just because your interest levels have waned.

You are a competent individual, but there can be a bit of the hit or miss about your approach because of the "try it and see" side of the third line.

You experiment on the job.

When things go well, you can be jettisoned into exciting and successful orbits, leaving you in a state of awe and joy, embodying and being the experience.

Until, that is, the restless moment comes to move on yet again!

But you keep building through life, layer upon sturdy layer, seeking to improve yourself and your future.

In the end, you come to realize something repetitious about the way you live.

OK, so you might have made all the right moves and lived life to the fullest, but there will be no real sense of breakthrough or lasting success.

Ultimately, you will reach a point where non confronted insecurities cannot be avoided and the need for stability will have to be addressed.

Your bottom line the bedrock of who you are is the need to find secure and trusting foundations.

When a project or person feels so important that you don't wish to lose it, you will, finally, put your stake in the ground, claim the land, and start to build home, business, and family in the interests of longevity.

When you find that place, your commitment is total.

In the unusual surroundings of self-assurance and steadfast support, you find fulfillment, meaning, and much sought-after acceptance of who you are.

Relationships: Your 1/3 partner has a secretive, introspective side, often talking quietly to him-or herself and asking:

"What am I getting out of this?" and

"Is there enough value to sustain a secure future?"

Notice there is no regard for what you are getting out of this.

1/3 profiles need to receive, receive, receive before they learn to trust and give, give, give.

Appreciating this self indulgence is to understand that, deep down, it is nothing but well ­hidden insecurity.

Trust is imperative if they are to wholly commit, so be watchful for the prodding, probing, and provocative questions of an investigator, try­ing to determine their safety in your arms.

Until they are sure, they can adopt an almost evasive, slippery attitude.

This can make them appear detached and impersonal.

Indeed, there is always the risk that they will suddenly be out the door, leaving not a single clue as to the reason for their abrupt exit.

This, inevitably, can be both distressing and confusing for those left behind.

But this is the nature of the 1/3 profile.

I often find that it is the partner of the 1/3 who has to be the anchor, providing the reassurance.

But when assured of love and security, the noncommittal 1/3 profile is the most solid and faithful partner to have at your side.

Compatibility: Your ideal profile matches are other 1/3s and 4/6 profiles.

Away from such synergy, you would also find easy company with 3/5, 3/6, 5/1, and 6/3 profiles.
