Need word that would describe this type of person and I am unable to locate it. Please help! I was recently ask for a word to describe myself and the best thing I could come up with is I thrive on change, but it is multiple words and I was asked to narrow it down to one. Therefore, I have been reaching out to determine if someone out there might know a word that works. My apologies for having the incorrect format for questions.

Welcome to EL&U. The nearest I can come to is the word neophile derived from Neophilia defined by the Merriam Webster online dictionary as

love of or enthusiasm for what is new or novel

Neophile does not have a separate entry in the MW dictionary but it is listed as a word derived from it.

Neophile may not be quite the word you are looking for but is the nearest I can think of. If someone else comes up with a better one I will be interested to see it.
