I think that it helps to have those descriptors that give us meaning, direction, or even sense of identity. An experience junkie knows exactly what he does for a living. I think many people stick with the generic descriptors – businessman, teacher, or surfer – and there’s nothing wrong with those descriptors – if it brings meaning, direction, or a sense of identity to your life.
But how about other descriptors that might help, but you have to make them up = avid stamp collector, foodie blogger, woodworking extraodinaire, experience junkie – whatever you pick. Make it up. Keep in mind. These are words from a self-proclaimed Identity Specialist.
