Finding Your Element



Though we’re never just one element at any time, its common for us to be closer to one more than the others. The element you associate with may share traits, both positive and negative, with you. Knowing your element can help you understand yourself and help you overcome problems that you encounter because of it.

Note that the element that you associate with now may change with time and personal growth.

So, how does one find their element? Well, first you gotta know the elements. Each one has its own set of traits.

Now, I won’t be listing all of the correspondence for each element, just the ones I think may be relevant to the topic.
