Who is a Daoist?

Daoists combine big thinking and skilled action.

Daoists are abstract thinkers and practical doers. They can explore the unknown and effectively use what they learn in the real world. Intellectual inquiry and innovative action are what they thrive on.

They’re curious about the big questions and always seek concrete answers. For Daoists, engaging in an engaging discussion is not enough to satisfy their intellectual ambitions.

Daoists are big thinkers that get it done. What’s most interesting about those with this worldview is that they’re often quite aware of their wisdom. It comes as little surprise when someone suggests they’re an “old soul” or a “cosmic citizen.”


The Sum is Greater than the Parts.

The most powerful characteristic of Daoist thinking is that, by balancing deep understanding with the goal of practical applications, one develops the skill to find the empowering meaning in any situation and then turns that knowledge to their advantage.
