If your name is Kaitlyn, you find that others naturally flock to your side . . . and for good reason. You see your life as a spiritual journey, and you are pleased and happy to share any wisdom you have gained along the way with those around you—whether in the form of spiritual truths you have learned or in the form of good, solid, practical advice. (Just don’t get too caught up in the problems of others, or you might exhaust yourself physically and emotionally!) You have an illuminating personality and exude a positive energy, and while others may not understand exactly why, they strive to be near you. Other people are also extraordinarily important to you, and you enjoy socializing, joking, talking, and laughing with them. You also put priority on your personal appearance because it important for you to make a good impression on others.
You are creative, but never lose sight of the practical. You are inventive and original, but you manage to see the big picture when others might get lost in less important and trivial details. You use this combination of creativity and practicality to be a diplomat and peacemaker, truly making the world around you a better place.
