People with a void personality type are easily discouraged and fall back on bad habits. If you scored high in the void category, you feel empty and lacking – but are resigned to feeling this way. A “void” is literally a blank space where nothing exists – and since nature abhors a vacuum, you try to fill the emptiness with distractions, addictions, or compulsions. You take up expensive hobbies, run up your credit cards, eat, drink, and indulge in many ways, shapes, and forms – all in a vain attempt to fill up the emptiness you feel inside.
Workshop 1 – Who You Are: While many people feel a sense of emptiness from time time, the void experiences this inner vacuum on a consistent basis…and believes there’s no way to change the situation. The void is resigned to a lack of fulfillment and tries to fill the emptiness with material things.
Why You’re That Way: Many people in the void category did not experience emotional closeness as children and learned to cope by turning off or burying their feelings. When these feelings try to surface, the void looks for ways to make them go underground again, possibly by engaging in distractions, hobbies, or by overeating.

Workshop 3 – Relationships/Family: Because of the void’s feelings of inner emptiness, it is difficult for this personality type to develop close relationships.
