With a natural thirst for knowledge, given the title of “bookworm” as a child. Proud of it, greatly enjoying her broad and deep body of knowledge. She enjoy sharing what she knows as well, confident in her mastery of their chosen subjects, she prefers to design and execute a brilliant plan within her field rather than share opinions on “uninteresting” distractions like gossip.
 

Masquerade is simultaneously the most starry-eyed idealist and the bitterest of cynics.  At times it will seem that she is bent on deconstructing and rebuilding every idea and system she comes into contact with, employing a sense of perfectionism and even morality to this work. Anyone who doesn’t have the talent to keep up with her processes, or worse yet, doesn’t see the point of it is likely to immediately and permanently lose her respect. Not impulsive, Masquerade will strive to remain rational no matter how attractive the end goal may be. This mechanism is applied at all times, to all things and all people, and this is often where she will run into trouble.
 

Masquerade is brilliant and confident in bodies of knowledge she has taken the time to understand, but unfortunately the social contract is unlikely to be one of those subjects. White lies and small talk are hard enough as it is for a type that craves truth and depth, but Masquerade may go so far as to see many social conventions as downright stupid. Ironically, it is often best for her to remain where she is comfortable – out of the spotlight – where the natural confidence prevalent in Masquerade as she works with the familiar can serve as its own beacon, attracting people, romantically or otherwise, of similar temperament and interests.
Masquerade has tendency to move through life as though it were a giant chess board, pieces constantly shifting with consideration and intelligence, always assessing new tactics, strategies and contingency plans, constantly outmaneuvering her peers in order to maintain control of a situation while maximizing her freedom to move about. This isn’t meant to suggest that she will act without conscience, Masquerade's distaste for acting on emotion can make it seem that way.

 

Strengths: 

Quick, Imaginative and Strategic Mind: Masquerade prided herself on her mind, taking every opportunity to improve her knowledge, and this shows in the strength and flexibility of her strategic thinking. Insatiably curious and always up for an intellectual challenge, Masquerade can see things from many perspectives. Masquerade uses her creativity and imagination not so much for artistry, but for planning contingencies and courses of action for all possible scenarios.

 

High Self-Confidence: Masquerade trusts her rationalism above all else, so when she comes to a conclusion, she has no reason to doubt her findings. This creates an honest, direct style of communication that isn't held back by perceived social roles or expectations. When Masquerade’s right, she's right, and no amount of politicking or hand-holding is going to change that fact – whether it's correcting a person, a process, or herself, she'd have it no other way.

 

Independent and Decisive: This creativity, logic and confidence come together to form Masquerade’s ‘stand on her own and take responsibility for her own actions’ personality. Authority figures do not impress her, nor do social conventions or tradition, and no matter how popular something is, if she has a better idea, Masquerade will stand against anyone she have to in a bid to have it changed. Either an idea is the most rational or it's wrong, and Masquerade will apply this to her arguments as well as her own behavior, staying calm and detached from these sometimes emotionally charged conflicts. Masquerade will only be swayed by those who follow suit.

 

Hard-working and determined: If something piques her interest, Masquerade can be astonishingly dedicated to her work, putting in long hours and intense effort to see an idea through. Masquerade is incredibly efficient, and if tasks meet the criteria of furthering a goal, she will find a way to consolidate and accomplish those tasks. However, this drive for efficiency can also lead to a sort of elaborate laziness, wherein Masquerade find ways to bypass seeming redundancies which don't seem to require a great deal of thought – this can be risky, as sometimes double-checking one's work is the standard for a reason.

 

Open-minded: All this rationalism leads to a very intellectually receptive personality type, as Masquerade can stay open to new ideas, supported by logic, even if (and sometimes especially if) one can prove Masquerade's previous conceptions wrong. When presented with unfamiliar territory, such as alternate lifestyles, Masquerade tends to apply her receptiveness and independence, and aversion to rules and traditions, to these new ideas as well, resulting in fairly liberal social senses.

 

Jacks-of-all-Trades: Masquerade' open-mindedness, determination, independence, confidence and strategic abilities create individuals who are capable of doing anything she set her minds to. Excelling at analyzing anything life throws her way, Masquerade are able to reverse-engineer the underlying methodology of most any system and apply the concepts that are exposed wherever needed. Masquerade tends to have her pick of professions, from forensic anthropologist to political masterminds.


Weaknesses/Flaws: 

Arrogant: Masquerade is perfectly capable of carrying her confidence too far, falsely believing that she resolved all the pertinent issues of a matter and closing herself off to the opinions of those she believe to be intellectually inferior. Combined with her irreverence for social conventions, Masquerade can be brutally insensitive in making her opinions of others all too clear.

 

Judgmental: Masquerade tends to have complete confidence in her thought process, because rational arguments are almost by definition correct – at least in theory. In practice, emotional considerations and history are hugely influential, and a weak point for Masquerade is that she brands these factors and those who embrace them as illogical, dismissing them and considering her proponents to be stuck in some baser mode of thought, making it all but impossible to be heard.

 

Overly analytical: A recurring theme with Masquerade is her analytical prowess, but this strength can fall painfully short where logic doesn't rule – such as with human relationships. When her critical minds and sometimes neurotic level of perfectionism (often the case with Turbulent Masquerade, where she’s self-conscious and sensitive to stress. She experiences a wide range of emotions and tends to be success-driven, perfectionist and eager to improve. She is also more willing to change jobs if she feels stuck in their current one and to spend time thinking about the direction in which her life is going.) are applied to other people, all but the steadiest of friends will likely need to make some distance, too often permanently.

 

Loathe highly structured environments: Blindly following precedents and rules without understanding them is distasteful to Masquerade, and she disdain even more authority figures who blindly uphold those laws and rules without understanding her intent. Anyone who prefers the status quo for its own sake, or who values stability and safety over self-determination, is likely to clash with Masquerade. Whether it's the law of the land or simple social convention, this aversion applies equally, often making life more difficult than it needs to be.

 

Clueless in romance: This antipathy to rules and tendency to over-analyze and be judgmental, even arrogant, all adds up to Masquerade’s often clueless in dating. Having a new relationship last long enough for Masquerade to apply the full force of her analysis on her potential partner's thought processes and behaviors can be challenging. Trying harder in the ways that Masquerade knows best can only make things worse, and it's unfortunately common for her to simply give up the search. Ironically, this is when she's at her best, and most likely to attract a partner.
