Yeah, it could be a load of crap – here’s mine:

Existential thinkers:
Like to spend time thinking about philosophical issues such as “What is the meaning of life?”
Try to see beyond the ‘here and now’, and understand deeper meanings
consider moral and ethical implications of problems as well as practical solutions

Like existential thinkers, Leonardo questioned man’s role in the universe. Many of his paintings explored the relationship between man and God.

Other Existential Thinkers include
The Buddha, Gandhi, Plato, Socrates, Martin Luther King

Careers which suit Existential Thinkers include
Philosopher, Religious leader, Head of state, Artist, Writer

Unless it’s got a camera, I don’t see myself too much like the Buddah.
