Not sure where to camp? Check your personality!

  • MC 

You and your friends went to beach camping for a weekend getaway. Everyone seems to be having fun but you are not enjoying it at all and thinking not to do it anymore. Perhaps, you might choose a wrong place to camp. People have different intentions when they camp; a lone wolf wants to find a peace of mind in nature while an outgoing person might want to spend time with friends for outdoor recreational activities. These things are notably influenced by personality. You will find camping is amazing if you could find a place that fits your character. 

Understand who you are and we help you find your camping destination match based on 4 major characteristic types:

The Entrepreneur

People with the entrepreneur personality tend to be energetic and action oriented, willing to take a leap of faith to uncover life’s opportunities and challenges. Their drive and courage come from within like a scorching sun, which influences and inspires others to dream more and learn more in turn.

For these reasons, The Entrepreneur is best suited to campsites like beaches. Being stasis is killing them. They are likely to be attracted to constantly changing environments and the novelty of new challenges. Beach is an unbeatable playground, where they can try all kinds of adventure-laden activities from snorkeling, surfing to kayaking. Some entrepreneurs can be daring yet introverted. Spending time on the coast can help them to feel a sense of rejuvenation and this could be a good place to do some readings and brainstorm for brilliant business ideas.

The Counselor

People with a counselor personality often appear reserved but highly sensitive to how others feel. They enjoy thinking about deep topics and help others understand their emotions and grow. They’re nicknamed “the counselor characteristic” because they don’t just sense the emotions of others, they can truly walk in another person’s shoes. They have inborn ability to bring healing and comfort to others. Consequently, they tend to be emotionally draining, and being alone is how they recharge themselves.

Like their personality which contains many layers and secrets, jungle or waterfall forest is an incredibly peaceful and spiritual place where The Counselor likes to explore happily. They do not need lots of recreational activities as they can solely stare at streamflow for more than a few hours. Staying away from the crowd and cultivating inner peace through forest bathing are the best feed for their soul.

They enjoy structure like schedules and agendas so that they can plan things ahead more comfortably.

They are great leaders who tend to be the ones that coordinate and get their hand dirty, also expect their subordinates to be just as hardworking as they are.
