You're trustworthy because you hold nothing back. You are open about what you like and don't like, so nobody has to guess. When you're angry, you don't let it fester, you let it out. You don't usually have ulterior motives. You mean what you say, and say what you mean. And that's an awesome quality!

OK, this one can get out of hand. But it's thrilling to be around you because you're so raw, real and...sometimes rough. Being with you is not for the faint of heart. Your strong will provokes others. Without meaning to, you often help others be more courageous, as they try to rise to meet the challenge of "You."

You’ve Got Street Smarts

You just know things. It comes from the gut instinct. This scares people that like to beat around the bush. Or those that are afraid to see what's going on. You save a lot of time by getting to the heart of a matter. You've got a naturally honest mind -- you tell it like it is.
