Component of:

Love is a creative process for these people. They're interested and engaged with those they love on a number of levels, from their beauty to their life story and what they're working on at a given time. People with artistic interests like to learn from love, explore their feelings, and share openly with those that they love.

Care and attention to detail are very important to these people, so it’s beneficial to be around those who share similarly high scores in artistic interests as well as in openness in general. A single heightened experience—like spending a beautiful sunset evening with someone for example—may be mistaken for sublime compatibility when realistically, there is no way to know based on one experience whether someone else is able to sustain the same levels of wonderfulness long term.

Aesthetic people are most likely drawn to the arts or to work that satisfies a creative need.

Environments are important to them, so offices and aesthetically careless spaces can be difficult to take. They're affected by the world around them, so they do better at work when the culture and environment are beautiful or at least intentional.
