They thrive on competition.  Its only natural because they need to know where exactly their gifts lie and where in the world their level of talent can take them.  They are searchers forever in this way…pushing boundaries publishing the results of their experiments, daring authorities and admiring one another’s scars/trophys.  They are at all times looking past the signs and into the restricted distance for something hidden that might contradict the clear warning.  Uncharted territory is where the glory lies.  What matters most though is not that they would challenge convention, but how will they challenge it.  Who’s model will they use?  Yours?  Kobe’s?  this is the only part of the equation you have any control over.  Your exposing them to fellow explorers who were successful AND righteous in their daring is the best way to ensure their survival.32._crop_650
