    Have you ever speculated about what kind of person you are? Then this thread is for you.

    The game is simple: describe yourself by choosing two Civ4 Leader Traits (Not more not less). Also, add some short lines of motivation; i.e. WHY you choose those traits

    ---
    Example (myself):

    Wejer

    Philosophical - I think, therefore I am. Big interests of mine are about people in general. I especially love political philosophy. If you knew me as a friend, I promise I won't stop until I have you swayed ;) (I am not vulgar or rough, just persistent)

    Financial - Because I am such a mean guy. That doesn't mean I don't like to gamble (I play Poker from time to time). Don't ask me for a loan though, if you don't want a mental slap :lol:

    ---
    Here are all the Leader Traits in case you forgot:

    Aggresive
    Creative
    Expansive
    Financial
    Industrious
    Organized
    Philosophical
    Spiritual
    Imperialistic
    Charismatic
    Protective


    Shoot!

    I always liked to think of myself as creative and organized-my jobs always demaned plenty of organization, but hey, I'm a writer too even if too many projects never see the light of day.

    I've thought about it before, and if I was a leader I guess I would be Creative/Organized or Creative/Expansive. I think culture is something important that's not valued enough today, so that's where I think creative comes from. I also have a small interest in literature and poetry; I've taken English courses in college just for the fun of it. Organized and Expansive come from my borderline obsessive-compulsiveness. Everything has to be in order; everything in its proper place and every task done in its alloted time.

    I might also pass for Spiritual or Philosophical. Could easily be Protective. :p Yeah, I could very easily be Protective/Organized.

    Wicked idea for a thread.

    I reckon I'd be industrious and organized although that makes me sound a lot more productive than I really am :lol:

    Creative - I love playing music and writing. While I may not seem like a creative person, I definitely am that.

    Philosophical - I tend to think things through well, sometimes even overthinking them so much that I totally miss the point. Yep.

    Imperialistic - I like taking charge of things that I think I can do well.
    Organized - goes into the same vein, planning and setting up things, although I still fail getting my room in order...

    Imperialistic - Protective just like Karl der Große/Karel de Grote/Karl den Store

    I need sometimes space for myself, where nobody disturbs me.
    And don't touch my family, I don't allowed it!

    Creative/Charismatic or Creative/Philosophical. I am, in some ways at least, fairly creative and I'm sort of Philosophical (or certainly more philosophical than say, financial or organised). As for charismatic, well, my personality simply reeks awesomeness :D .

    I'm philosophical for sure. I think a lot, sometimes overly much. I also get lost in those thoughts and constantly ask why things are the way they are.

    As for the second trait I had to think a bit harder. Eventually I decided for protective over creative. While I do enjoy writing a lot I'm not that much for culture as a whole. But I value my own space and tend to keep people at a distance. I'm uncomfortable in crowds and around people.
