Synergy's Inner Directeds want to "discover themselves", while "Self Explorers" are "tolerant, self-aware people" who believe in being "true to yourself". "Experimentalists" are creative and self-confident. Outer Directeds compare themselves to others, they are competitive and concerned with appearance.
Compare this with Wilson: "The Inner-directed type of man is the man with pioneer qualities; in an expanding and changing society he ... possesses the self-discipline to drive towards a goal he himself has chosen. The Outer-directed man cares more for what the neighbours think than for what he wants in his own person."
Ho hum, plus ca change.
