XXVIII: PERSONALITIES

12.PHILATELIST A person collecting stamps. A philatelist collects stamps, just as a NUMISMATIST collects coins.
PHILATELIST: STAMPS
NUMISMATIST: COINS
13. MERCENARY
A person solely motivated by money. Just as a VINDICTIVE person is motivated by revenge, a MERCENARY is motivated by money.
VINDICTIVE: REVENGE
MERCENARY: MONEY
If we're VINDICTIVE, we're REVENGEFUL. Vindictive people are full of VENDETTA [ thirst for revenge].
VENDETTA x FORGIVENESS
14. GOURMET
A critical expert on food and drinks.
15. CONNOISSEUR
A critical expert or judge of arts, food, drinks and women.
A connoisseur is exactly the opposite of a TYRO, a beginner in a field.
CONNOISSEUR: EXPERTISE
TYRO: INEXPERIENCE
Just as a CONNOISSEUR is a person of expertise, a TYRO is a person of inexperience.
