    If you had to choose two (and only two) traits for yourself?

    I would go with Expansionist and Industrious.

    Scientific and Industrious. After that, Commercial and Seafaring. And as for the remaining four, they really do not apply to me.

    I wish I were Seafaring, but I live too far from the coast. Have to settle for vacations on the beach. I'm haven't traveled enough to be Expansionist.

    Scientific and Religious

    Oh, is Expansionist about travelling? It'd make sense, what with scouts and explorers adventuring through wild nature and such. Then I should definitely put Expansionist somewhere as well...

    Hmmm... Well I can definitely rule out Commercial, Industrious, Militaristic and Religious! And although I used to be a little Expansionist (as defined above), I'm more of a hermit these days.

    I'm not very Agricultural either (although our little garden is looking pretty good!).

    So, by process of elimination, I'm left with Scientific and Seafaring (which does also sorta tie into my previous and current jobs, and my hobby). Not to mention, when I first joined CFC I picked the Civ3 Byzantine Dromon as my avatar...

    I suppose I'd be scientific (work in an environmental chem lab), and expansionist (outdoor hobbies and traveling). Although agricultural could apply as well, since we have a modest vegetable garden, but I think expansionist fits better.

    Expansionist (what else could you expect when looking at my signature ?) and Organized (that´s a trait of my CCM mod).

    Given how much work you do on CCM and RARR, I really think you ought to claim a third trait: Industrious ;)

    I would pick scientific and industrious. I am scientific (working as a programmer) and I would like to be industrious (though I'm not: I'm rather pretty lazy... :mischief:)

    Religious and Commercial, with aspirations to being more Industrious. I would be Scientific if I could start another career just for fun.

    Seafaring :lol:

    I also treat all tiles as roads, but that is a unit trait.

    Being able to fly would be very cool for one person.
    Being able to speak every language would be a close second.

    You only did that because that unit has one of the coolest, if not the coolest, combat animations. ;)

    Scientific and... Commercial? The former due to belief in science and the benefit of a scientific approach, the latter due to a high financial literacy for my age bracket.

    I considered industrious, but what Lanzelot said applies to me as well. Most of my industriousness is inspired by quests for science, however quixotic the science may be. And I need either more outdoor hobbies, or another couple years with travel like 2019, to qualify for Expansionist.
