Are You an Idealist with Awkwardly High Standards?

“Cynics are – beneath it all – only idealists with awkwardly high standards.” ~ Alain de Botton The Prince/Knight of Swords often suffers from ‘rebel without a cause’ syndrome. His quick wit can be his enemy as well as his greatest ally. He does his best work when he manages to channel his inherent idealism constructively. He frequently needs grounding and as he grows older he could quite easily turn to cynicism as a defense.
