You are an introvert!

This painting features a scholar sitting on a rock, framed by a pine tree and waterfall. There is high contrast between the light and dark ink, as well as the lines and wash. Though this painting lacks a feeling of three-dimensionality, it is lively and energetic.

Like this scholar, you enjoy solitude and quiet contemplation. You like to recharge by simply taking in nature. Rather than diving into something (literally or figuratively), however, you prefer to sit on the sidelines and watch the daily rhythm of life pass by.
