I was reading this book last night--see below--and realised, much to my amusement, I am married to a swashbuckler!!!
VIRTUES--Fearless, Exciting, Capable
FLAWS--Unreliable, Foolhardy, Selfish
Obviously, these are the archetypes virtues and flaws, I would never call my husband selfish. But it was the following that sealed it for me...
BACKGROUND--This child kept his parents on their toes. Whether from a settled environment (yep) or following an adventurous family tradition, from an early age he was fearless in his pursuits. His family would often have to tie him down in order to ensure his safety. But he invariably escaped, not wanting to miss the next great escapade.
His family did tie him up--and put bars on the windows, LOL. And they had 4 others just like him, except his sister who was obviously much more refined (honest).
