Adventurous personality type/DSMIV Anti-Social Personality
Dr. John M. Oldham has defined the Adventurous personality style. The following eight characteristic traits and behaviors are listed in his The New Personality Self-Portrait.
Nonconformity. Men and women who have the Adventurous personality style live by their own internal code of values. They are not strongly influenced by other people or by the norms of society.
Challenge. To live is to dare. Adventurers love the thrill of risk and routinely engage in high-risk activities.
Mutual independence. They do not worry too much about others, for they expect each human being to be responsible for him- or herself.
Persuasiveness. They are silver-tongued, gifted in the gentle art of winning friends and influencing people.
Wanderlust. They love to keep moving. They settle down only to have the urge to pick up and go, explore, move out, move on. They do not worry about finding work, and live well by their talents, skills, ingenuity, and wits.
Wild oats. In their childhood and adolescence, people with the Adventurous personality style were usually high-spirited hell-raisers and mischief makers.
True grit. They are courageous, physically bold, and tough. They will stand up to anyone who dares to take advantage of them.
No regrets. Adventurers live in the present. They do not feel guilty about the past or anxious about the future. Life is meant to be experienced now.
