Daoism

You live a simple life and are a go-with-the-flow type of person. You have a very open personality. You welcome people and rarely get impatient. You enjoy nature and never let a mistake impede you, but instead you use it to your advantage. You have many ideas and and are not afraid to take risks. You are calm and believe in learning through experience and are usually grateful for what you have.  You get a long with people who believe in a hierarchy and inequality even though you belive in equality. They care about education and are very involved in politics. Your personalities balance each others' which maintains a balance in your relationship. "All beings support the yin and embrace the yang; And through the blending of qi, they create harmony... Therefore things may gain by 
losing, and lose by gaining." (DaodeJing) Having opposites is not always bad but sometimes balances out instead. It creates harmony, like Daoism and Confucianism. When you gain knowledge you also lose what you had before, the not knowing. You, however, do not believe in following the rules and like to go your own way. You don't get along with people who are strict because you think they are too controlling.You usually just stick to yourself and are open about being different.

Confucianism

Education is one of the most important things in your life. You believe in order, but order without too much constraint. The best way to teach others and to keep order is to set good examples for them. Your family is very important to you, and most importantly, your relationships with your parents or children (if any). "A youth, when at home, should be filial, and abroad, respectful to his elders. He should be earneset and truthful. He should over-flow in love to all, and cultivate the friends hip of the good" -The Master (Strayer 199 The Analects). The people above you are important in your character development. You always honor and respect them and always try to be good. You believe that people are good and humans can and will always improve. You are very smart and have a passion for learning and you learn very quickly. Although Daoism is completely different, at times you look towards the relaxation and comfort of nature. During the day you work very hard and at night you let yourself relax. You are very passionate about education, however, Legalists look down on education which is why you do not get a long with them. You do not agree with their belief that the people existed for the government, instead you belived that the government existed for the people. You do not get along with Legalists as well as you do with Daoists.
