You could end up making your lover pretty uncomfortable. They want to grow and change as a human being, to expand their horizons and discover themselves; but somehow, their methods for doing that clash with this person in their life, and you could end up holding them back from their journey as a result. This wasn't apparent right at the beginning of your courtship; it's more a problem that reveals itself over time.
You take two different tacks when it comes to discovery of the unknown: they rely more on their education or upbringing, on the methods they've learned to seek things out intellectually, while you rely more on gut instinct paired with a pure rebellious streak. Needless to say, those two methods are incompatible with each other, and you may both start to feel as if the other's methods are an actual threat to your own. You aren't able to share in each other's most original ideas, because you put up walls against the ways in which you reach those ideas. Your lover might dismiss your maverick ideas as foolishness, simply because they haven't been substantiated in a way that's understandable to them. You may not trust their reliance on books and the more formal avenues toward learning. If you can learn to respect each other's methods and listen to each other, you can find that you each have your own brand of brilliance to bring to the table.
