If you have Input in your Top 5, then you should know that you are inquisitive and curious. You are always on the lookout for new and interesting information.People with Input in your Top 5 are able to not just collect information but also store it, and then retrieve it when needed. You might collect information - words, facts, books, and quotations - or you might collect tangible objects such as butterflies, baseball cards, porcelain dolls, or sepia photographs. Whatever you collect, you collect it because it interests you. And yours is the kind of mind that finds so many things interesting. The world is exciting precisely because of its infinite variety and complexity. If you read a great deal, it is not necessarily to refine your theories but, rather, to add more information to your archives. You really don't feel comfortable throwing anything away. So you keep acquiring and compiling and filing stuff away because it is interesting to you. It keeps your mind fresh. And perhaps one day some of it will prove valuable.
So ever since I learned that Input is my second strongest theme, I had been trying to figure out what I collect. I was in denial for a while until a colleague pointed it out to me. Quotes! I love quote and I collect them. Since it is something I naturally did, I never thought of myself as a collector. But the truth is, I do collect quotes! I have a quote for everything! I even have folders on my computer and phone to organize my quotes. My Pinterest is pretty much a giant pot of quotes and my house has quotes all over it. Although I was blind to it, anyone around me could see that I collect quotes. If you don't know what you collect, ask those around you what they notice. You might be surprised!
