I always saw myself as an Artisan. When i browsed the net for more info, I found out that there is such a thing as an Artisan temperament.

The Artisan temperament is one of four temperaments defined by David Keirsey.

(David Keirsey,an internationally renowned psychologist, a professor emeritus at California State University, Fullerton, and the author of several books. In his most popular publications, Please Understand Me (1978, co-authored by Marilyn Bates) and the revised and expanded second volume Please Understand Me II (1998), he laid out a self-assessed personality questionnaire, known as the Keirsey Temperament Sorter, which links human behaviorial patterns to four temperaments and sixteen character types.)

Heres an excerpt from Artisan temperament from wikipedia: (I must say a lot of these things hold true to my personality). A must read.

Artisans are concrete in speech and utilitarian in pursing their goals. Their greatest strength is tactical variation. Their most developed intelligence role is that of either the Operator (Promoters and Crafters) or the Entertainer (Performers and Composers).
As the stimulation-seeking temperament, Artisans prefer to live one day at a time. They may spontaneously pursue activities that offer fun or pleasure. Playful in their interpersonal relationships, Artisans tend to be more permissive as parents than the other temperaments,[1] wanting their children to explore and enjoy the world.
Interests: In education, Artisans want to learn artcrafts and techniques that they can use in their career. They tend to seek work involving operations and equipment,[2] which could range from a scalpel to a fighter jet. <- in my case a mouse to draw in the computer or a pencil to sketch.
Orientation: Artisans live in the here and now. They want to enjoy the present moment. They tend to be optimistic about the future.

Self-image: The Artisans' self-esteem is rooted in their grace and artistry; their self-respect in their boldness; and their self-confidence in their adaptability.
Values: Artisans enjoy excitement and perform well when in a state of restless energy. "They are excitable as children and they never seem to get less excitable as they grow up."[2] They seek stimulation and trust their impulses. Prone to spontaneous acts of generosity, they want to make an impact on others. They aspire to virtuosity, taking great pleasure in practicing and mastering their technique in the pursuits that interest them.
Social roles: In romantic relationships, Artisans want a playmate, someone who can share in the pleasure and excitement they seek. As parents, Artisans are liberators, exposing their children to a wide variety of activities, encouraging them to push beyond their limits, and guiding them toward independence and self-sufficiency. In business and social situations, they are negotiators, making the most of the opportunities at hand.

Interesting write up don't you think?

About the look:
Combining cultures/uniforms/pieces for this look like: 50s postcard prints on boardshorts paired with a golf shirt with indian beads and sandals, hi-low jewelry combining inexpensive items with gold jewlery, ethnic vest/cape and a wool boater hat. I imagine myself as a travelling artisan seeking knowledge.

Well let's say from this year (I pass all the exams, selections and stuff.) I'm a student of the Music Academy in the Opera and Acting department. I was learning opera singing privately for 2 years and nonw I'm fighting for my future - I really longe to be an Opera singer and sing on the big stage the Queen of the Night part! So now already I'm looking for all of the special mettings, concerts -even if they are little I want to do more and more! Hope in a few years you will hear about me. :)

With this look, I would be worried that there is an overload of patterns, but when I look at how you've constructed it so meticulously I can see a true Artisan. Somehow the various designs seem to strike harmony, rather than garish contrast - how delightful! Combined with the brief, I now envisage each individual item as possessing some deep-held memory or piece of knowledge significant to this "Artisan" you've sculpted. It's a feast for the eyes, and I love it, Andre!!
