Fluid, adaptable, and quick to see various solutions to a problem. You’re the most flexible of the elementals. Like most waters, you are kind and gentle, in part because you often forget why you were supposed to hold a grudge. You’re resilient and quick-witted, though you may tend to speak first and consider your words second, a trait that has gotten you into trouble on more than one occasion. Because of your frequent showers and baths, your personal hygiene is impeccable.
You are the firecracker of the elementals. You’re full of energy and find it difficult to remain still for long periods of time. You’re quite possibly a fidgeter. You are stubborn and intense. While you don’t reveal their emotions easily, there’s always something burning just below the surface. You feel love and hate just a little more intensely than most people do, and few are as loyal as you are. Though you know better, part of you thinks this whole global warming thing is kind of awesome.
You are the most grounded of all elementals. You’re calm and thoughtful, and you tend to have a pretty big brain (though you’d never brag about that, of course). You’re fairly quiet and introverted, and you’d rather spend an evening at home with friends than drinking in a noisy bar. You seek harmony and peace in your life, but you also need to be useful. Few things drive you battier than a puzzle that refuses to be solved.
Of course, you are the coolest of the elementals. You’re charming and charismatic and can work a room like no one’s business. You appreciate the finer things in life: particularly good booze, good food, and a good date. People love your easy-going sense of humor, though your surface charm can be a way to keep people at arm’s length. You’re slow to change, but considering that you like yourself just as you are, that’s not really a problem for you.
The most elusive of the elementals because you don’t move around a whole lot. You tend to find a place you like and stay put, because you see little point in looking for something better when you’re already perfectly happy. You do tend to get set in your ways easily, and you’re the most stubborn of all the elementals. You’re also the most reliable, and you are often surrounded by more flighty people who appreciate your stable influence.
While not as elusive as stone elementals, you’re undoubtedly the most anti-social. You like wide open spaces populated by very few people and avoid spending much time in cities. While you have a strict moral code of your own, you have little interest in society’s laws. You meet up with friends every now and then to let off some steam, but for the most part you keep to yourself. You’re also very patient.
