The Explorer Archetype is on a continual pursuit of authenticity and self-exploration. You believe there’s often much more to things than meets the eye.
You’re a seeker, often motivated by dissatisfaction, restlessness, or confinement. Settling into a routine is not something you do well. You greatly value flexibility and freedom and tend to struggle with boundaries, schedules, and tight commitments.
Consumed with a passion to seek greener pastures, you’re on a perpetual quest for self-sufficiency, authenticity, and the discovery of your most authentic self. It’s not enough for you to survive, you want to truly thrive.
You place great value on individuality and as such, encourage others to stay on their own journey of continual self-awareness. Discovery-driven Explorer brands are often considered pioneers when it comes to their offerings.
