Survivor Club Personality profile

Post by Canyonram » Jul 12 2011 10:11 am

Author Ben Sherwood, in his book ‘The Survivors Club (2009),’ reviewed life-threatening ordeals and looked for the ‘secrets’ and personality profiles of those who somehow survived horrendous events/accidents. One of his main points is that anyone who is now alive is already a survivor. All of us have experienced some extreme challenge(s) that we have meet and overcome and are still alive. This understanding that you have overcome life’s obstacles in the past can be a strong source of strength in the present when it comes time to deal with yet another dangerous situation. You survived your abusive parents, a bad illness, a terrible car accident—now you will survive getting lost/injured. During his research, Sherwood developed a large database of survivor tools and behaviors that resulted in defining five different Survivor Types.

The Survivor Profiler Quiz is available online at http://www.survivorprofiler.com/getcode/. After you complete the free quiz, you will receive your Survivor IQ that tells you what type of survivor you are, your top three Survival tools, and in-depth profiles of real-life survivors who match your profile. Knowing your strengths will also help you to work on your weaknesses; knowing the Survivor Type for the members in your hiking party will help you prepare for any group challenges.

I -- me, personally -- have been hit by an airplane in mid-air and survived with nothing more than a bruised elbow. Good thing it was a glancing blow. ;)

You were jumping out of a perfectly good airplane? :o

Luck is one of the dimensions that most survivors share.

It was an Air Force plane. Old and stinky. :)

Luck and an ability to stay calm & focused in the most trying circumstances. What they say about things slowing down is true ...

Been overboard in a raft, hit by a rockfall, stuck in mud/quicksand/snow, rolled in a truck, etc. Never been in a mid-air collision though.

Been shot with a .45 2 centimeters away from my spine. Lucky for me it went in and out my side. No major damage. Life changing experience. Needless to say, made some changes in my life after that.

I've been shot at by drug dealers/makers (Meth Lab in the Chino Valley area), but never hit. Damn!

I had to hike behind Jim Lyding once after he ate a bunch of moldy looking beef jerky... I never thought I'd make it out alive!

I thought I pulled that jerky out, saw it was moldy and decided not to eat it? Lying pumpkin. At least I got to punish you for your future lying pumpkin. That Knoll Lake hike was a pretty cool hike.

21 years in the Army, and the only time I've even been shot at was when I lived in Los Angeles. :lol:

Darwinian principles at work!! I was thinking about some of the stupid stuff I've done over the years... Lucky to have made it! Been through miles of stitches, mountains of bandages, had a car roll over on my arm... Never broke a bone (noses don't count!), though. Forgot about getting (almost) shot with the 44 magnum until kevin's post (bullet fragments don't count, either).

Oh, the ignorance of youth! Wait... it was just a month or so ago when I went sliding down the Wall O Death; still alive and (mostly) unscathed - we can forget about that too!!

@PLC92084
I agree, I think the fact that we made it thru some of the things we all did is amazing.
It's one thing to survive the actions of oneself, it's true survival to make it thru the actions of others or nature. Like being shot or hit by lightning.
