7-roles (300)

Your soul is your innermost being, your higher self, who you really are. And according to the Michael teachings, your soul will have one of seven distinct ‘vibrations’ or ‘tones’.

The Spectrum of Essence

When we cast light through a prism, it comes out in the form of a spectrum which we perceive as the seven colours of the rainbow. Similarly, when the Source of all being (God, the Tao, the Absolute, whatever you like to call it) casts its consciousness into the relative world, it comes out in the form of individual souls of seven types: The Seven Roles

What are the roles?

The word “role” refers to the fact that we each serve a particular type of function in the great scheme of things. We are all parts of a greater whole—the evolving consciousness of all-that-is.

Think of how every cell in your body is designed to play a specific role or function. And, although there are trillions of cells in the human body, there are only a few different types of cell.

Or think about all the stars in the cosmos. Although their number is so high as to be virtually infinite, scientists classify them all into just seven types, from hottest (type O) to coolest (type M).

Similarly, there are only seven types of soul. Which is to say, there are seven primary ‘roles in essence’ — seven ways in which the One becomes the many.

The names given to the seven soul types in the Michael Teachings are deliberately archetypal — hence somewhat old-fashioned sounding and not necessarily politically correct. The names are:

SERVER | ARTISAN | WARRIOR | SCHOLAR | SAGE | PRIEST | KING

The names reflect the natural purpose and proclivities of each soul type:

  • Servers are naturally accommodating, caring, nurturing, hospitable, altruistic.
  • Artisans are naturally creative, inventive, imaginative, sensitive, dexterous.
  • Warriors are naturally forceful, loyal, protective, determined, steadfast.
  • Scholars are naturally curious, studious, academic, analytical, neutral.
  • Sages are naturally engaging, articulate, charming, entertaining, expressive.
  • Priests are naturally inspirational, uplifting, motivating, energising, visionary.
  • Kings are naturally commanding, assured, powerful, authoritative, decisive.

You are one of these. I am one of these [a Scholar, to be exact]. Everybody is one or another of these. All the 7 billion souls who are currently on the planet, plus all those who are currently are off-planet between lives, can be identified as one of these seven types.

Faces of the 7 soul typesIncidentally, you can often (but not always) tell someone’s soul type from their facial features. I have a separate article on this: The seven soul types: what do they look like?

(Feel free to look at that now, but do come back here to learn a lot more about the nature of the seven types!)

The Proportions of Soul Types

The seven roles make up different proportions of the overall population. In percentage terms:

  • Role-proportions-chartServers = 25%
  • Artisans = 21%
  • Warriors = 18%
  • Scholars = 14%
  • Sages = 11%
  • Priests = 7%
  • Kings = 4%

So, one quarter of the entire poluation is made up of Servers, while there are fewer Kings than any other type.

To illustrate this, think of a school class with 28 students. According to these figures, those students would probably be made up of the following: — one King, two Priests, three Sages, four Scholars, five Warriors, six Artisans and seven Servers.

Now here are some further explanations about the roles in essence.

A d v e r t i s e m e n t


The Nature of the Roles

  • Roles are not assigned to us or imposed on us. They are who we are.
  • There is no hierarchy. All roles are equal in value, and all souls are equally free. A King is in no way “higher up” or “better off” than a Server. The roles are simply seven different ways of being, seven ways of playing the game of life.
  • A person’s soul type has no bearing whatsoever on that person’s station in life. A King soul will live just as many ordinary, hard-working lives as a Server. A Server has just as much opportunity to become a leader as any King. In fact, the present monarch in the UK is a Server, as is the heir to the throne.
  • The roles are certainly not be confused with the Hindu caste system. There are similarities in the names used, but this is simply because the caste system is a tragic misrepresentation of the nature of the roles. Soul types having nothing to do with birth, ancestry or class heritage.
  • Despite the labels used, no gender is implied. Souls have no gender. They simply choose between one or the other for each life to come. There are preferences, however. Priests, Sages, Artisans and especially Servers generally enjoy being female and often prefer it. Kings, along with Scholars and Warriors, tend to favour being male. (That said, the challenge of being female and the fight for equal rights can be very attractive to a Warrior.)
  • Our soul type is often evident in the first years of life but then becomes masked to some extent by false self or false personality. This consists of cultural programming, ego, persona and so on — the superficial identity we all develop which has nothing to do with who we really are. Usually, it is not until mid-life (when much of this false identity is broken through) that our true essence comes to express itself more clearly. For example, a female Warrior in her late 30s who has so far been a stay-at-home housewife might suddenly find her true home working as a political activist. A male Artisan who has followed in his father’s footsteps in the armed forces might have a mid-life crisis and decide to become a poet.
  • Whereas our soul type is permanent, everything else can change from one life to the next: race, nationality, religion, gender, social standing, profession. But the essence and consciousness will be consistent. For example, a certain Artisan soul might incarnate as a woodworker in one life, a choirboy in the next, then a housewife, then a wealthy wine merchant, then a child prostitute, then a female shopkeeper … and so on. Throughout all these human lives, however, the Artisan will tend to be creative and inventive, seeking to bring fresh and original perceptions into being.
  • I am often asked if it is possible to identify with more than one role. In fact, it is almost impossible not to. Here’s why: Casting — your soul’s place in the cosmos (and how it affects your soul type).

Our role in essence is our true nature, the part we each play in the cosmos. And, as the Michael teachings remind us:

NO MATTER WHAT THE ROLE OF ESSENCE, THE ESSENCE ITSELF IS COMPOSED WHOLLY OF LOVE.

Complementary opposites

Another interesting thing about the seven soul types…

Six of the seven soul types actually belong in pairs. Those in a pair share a similar function or specialism in life:

  • Priests and Servers are both inspiration specialists, bringing good intentions to life, serving a good cause, seeking to improve the quality of life for all.
  • Sages and Artisans are both expression specialists, bringing good ideas to life, giving form or voice to thoughts and feelings, changing perceptions.
  • Kings and Warriors are both action specialists, bringing concrete objectives to life, making things happen, setting goals and moving towards them.

Scholars stand alone as the neutral role, and they are the assimilation specialists, absorbing knowledge from life. Roles in pairs 400 In each of the pairs (action, expression and inspiration), one is “cardinal” and the other is “ordinal. Another way to put this is in terms of yin and yang.

The cardinal of the pair is yang: proactive, expansive, foreground, driven, and with a big-picture focus. The ordinal of the pair is yin, the equal-but-opposite complementary energy to yang: reactive, responsive, background, introspective, and with a detail-level focus.

  • In the action-type roles, the King role is cardinal and the Warrior role is ordinal. To use a simplistic analogy, Kings embark on wars while Warriors fight battles.
  • In the expression-type roles, the Sage role is cardinal and the Artisan role is ordinal. If all the world’s a stage, Sages are the presenters of the show, while the show itself is created and crafted by Artisans.
  • In the inspiration-type roles, the Priest is the cardinal role and the Server is the ordinal role. If inspiration is likened to shepherding, Priests move the whole flock on to better pastures while Servers tend to those in need.

The Scholar role is neither cardinal nor ordinal, but at the intersection of all the pairs. The Scholar is the only neutral type, the role being assimilation — absorbing information from life to create knowledge. At the risk of mixing too many metaphors at once, Scholars would be the ones who chronicle wars, record stage shows, and study sheep!

Positive and Negative

It is important to understand that we can manifest our potential in different ways. In the extremes, each role has a positive pole (+) and a negative pole (–).

  • The positive pole represents the highest, most authentic and positive expession of the soul, the true self, which is a source of love, truth and freedom.
  • The negative pole represents the lowest, most distorted and negative expession of the ego, the false self, which is a source of fear, illusion and malice.

For example, my being a Scholar means that I am the sort of soul whose role in life is to take information from the raw data of reality. Scholar has as its positive pole “knowledge” and as its negative pole “theory”. When acting in my positive pole, I do indeed serve a positive purpose by collecting and offering valid, useful knowledge. But when acting in my negative pole, I tend to get side-tracked in invalid or useless theories of no interest to anyone but me, and then only because my ego gets off on knowing more and more things rather than interacting with real life. You could say that the positive manifestation of a Scholar is being a knowledgeable expert and the negative manifestation is what some would call a nerd or dweeb — (sigh) — so true.

So, the positive pole of any role leads towards true fulfilment of self and true intimacy with others. The negative pole leads to emptiness, frustration and alienation. Here they are in full:

ROLE POSITIVE POLE NEGATIVE POLE
Server service (serving the common good) servitude (loss of own power)
Artisan creation (bringing good ideas to life) artifice (ideas used to deceive)
Warrior persuasion (influencing others’ will) coercion (imposing own will)
Scholar knowledge (learning from life) theory (lost in abstractions)
Sage communication (delivering messages) verbosity (stuck on transmission)
Priest motivation (inspiring others to change up) zealotry (overly fanatical)
King mastery (absolute responsibility) tyranny (absolute power)

Relationships and Roles

Interestingly, the different roles do relationhips in subtly different ways.

  • For Warriors and Kings (action type), relationships are a matter of fealty or loyalty.
  • For Sages and Artisans (expression type), relationships are a matter of commitment.
  • For Priests and Servers (inspiration type), relationships are a matter of dedication.
  • For Scholars (assimilation type), relationships are a matter of involvement.

Channels of Input

We process our experiences through one or more channels of perceptual input. The number of channels we possess varies, depending upon our role in essence.

  • Scholars, Kings and Warriors receive information through just one channel. This allows them to focus on what’s what, concentrate on the matter at hand, and think clearly amid chaos.
  • Priests and Servers receive information through two channels. One is tuned to the immediate situation, and the other is tuned to, in the case of Priests, their sense of the “higher good”, and in the case of Servers, a sense of the “common good”. Hence, there is often a moral or ethical overtone to their conversations.
  • Sages process information through three channels, while Artisans have five channels. With Sages, one channel is tuned to the immediate situation, one is managing their “act” or “performance”, and one is monitoring their audience. With Artisans, it is more a case of having multiple “back burners” making creative connections around the immediate situation.

While they are shifting their attention between their multiple channels, Sages and especially Artisans can appear to “tune out” the person they are communicating with. This makes Artisans in particular seem somewhat scattered, at least to non-Artisans. By the same token, those with multiple channels can find it difficult to accept the single-mindedness of Scholars, Kings and Warriors.

OK, you have the background. Now perhaps you want to know more specifically about each of the seven roles in essence. If you want a quick sense of what they all look like, based on photos of some famous examples in each case, see:

Discover Your Soul Type

Some people find it easy to intuit their own soul type or essence. For others, it’s far from obvious. To help you identify yours, I have put together a questionnaire (personality quiz) at Quibblo. Here’s the link: http://www.quibblo.com/quiz/atufj3C/Discover-Your-Soul-Type.

Over 10,000 people have taken it already and the results look like this:

Soul Type Quiz Results July 2010

The ‘natural’ proportions, you may remember, range from 4% Kings to 25% Servers. So this chart is showing a lot more Priests and Artisans than would be expected, and not many Warriors. This suggests either that the test is skewed to identify Priests and Artisans but not Warriors (which I totally accept is a possibility), or perhaps it is simply that Priests and Artisans are more likely to be doing this kind of thing on the Internet and Warriors aren’t. Feedback welcome!

Book: 7 Personality Types

For a great book about the seven soul types, I recommend 7 Personality Types by Elizabeth Puttick PhD (Hay House, 2009).The book discusses the seven roles as seven archetypes. It begins with a questionnaire to help the reader identify their own type. There then follows a chapter on each of the types which includes lots of useful information on how they characteristically operate at home, at work and in relationships. Examples are also given of how the archetype has been portrayed in myth, fiction and film, and each chapter ends with a list of famous real-life examples. See 7 Personality Types at Amazon.com

    Visually I am Warrior, but Scholar describes me more, although Artisan, Server and Warrior describe many of my traits. Not sure where I am! Mature, level 5 I am sure of, but essence is a bit of a mystery. Hmmmm.

    Thanks for such an informative website!

    • 5 barry 08 Jul 2014 at 12:34 pm

      Oo-er. Well, my impressions (read: educated guesses) would be, from left to right:

      No. 1 has a “smiley face explosion” going on, hence guessing at Sage.
      No. 2 has the “arched eyebrows of wonder” you see in many Artisans, though my wife points out that with that forehead she could be a Scholar…
      No. 3 looks physically grounded, focused and proactive, hence Warrior.
      No. 4 looks strikingly straight into (rather than at) the viewer, hence Priest.

      confidence level: 30%

          You know I charge $100 per face?

          Only joking … so far!

          But do bear in mind that an assessment is often difficult from one photo alone, especially when the person is posing for it.

          With that caveat in mind:

          1. (the young couple in the professional studio shot):

          He seems to me to be shaped (and textured) like a classic Scholar. In fact I looked quite the same at that age.
          She, however, has what I’m fairly sure is the strong, challenge-seeking expression of a Warrior.

          2. (the young ladies getting drunk sipping cocktails):

          The smaller one on the left looks warm, open and inviting, so I would assume she has goal of Acceptance, and given what looks like a heart-shaped face I would tentatively guess she’s an Artisan. If not, maybe Server.

          The taller one on the right is … tricky. The look is different, and suggests to me she’s driven by goal of Growth rather than Acceptance, but her underlying presence/essence is less distinct under all that make-up … Her eyes probably look bigger than they really are, for instance. I’m actually swinging between Scholar, Artisan and Priest, and that’s as far as I can get for now!

            You are good! Knowing them all in various degrees, I think you are definitely right about the first couple, particularly her. I would add that she probably has a goal of Growth. Not sure about him. With the second pair, I would lean toward Server for the first girl and Artisan for the second (her eyes are actually very large, striking even, but the picture has been Instagrammed and distorted). Goals of Acceptance and Growth seem spot on. Both are very warm and fun-loving personalities.

  5. 10 Raven McChesney 02 Aug 2014 at 8:37 am

    I think I need help figuring out my soul age and type. I fit very well into the artisan, but I have strong sage and priest qualities. To be honest, I have a lot of the qualities of all 7 give and take. I’m a writer, a tattooist,and nursing student. My friends call me their therapist and I love helping others but I feel happiest in a new place, creating something or learning something. I’m a extrovert and I love studying art and culture. I have a burning desire to change the world and leave it better than I entered.
    I want to travel and experience as much as I can. I’m a super happy person and like to keep others the same.
    Age wise:
    I have young soul and mature soul tendencies. I have the ambition of a young soul, a slight ego of one (competitive wise). But my life goals are more towards relationships and teamwork. I’m overly critical of myself and will sometimes give others opinions a hierarchy over my own.I accept everyone as different and I feel we all are a piece of a larger puzzle. I strive best in a co-lead environments but I will step up if I feel no one else will…and my heart yearns for a soul mate like connection :) If you took the time to read that, then thank you, maybe you can help me figure out my soul type and age.

    • 11 barry 08 Aug 2014 at 4:42 am

      Hi Raven,

      Looking at your pics on Facebook, you seem to me (facially) rather more like a Priest, though you do have a lot of Artisan friends too! So perhaps Artisan-cast Priest? Your “zeal” for improving the world is classic Priest, as is having friends who see you as their therapist! So I would tentatively guess Artisan-cast Priest, meaning someone whose basic mission in life is to uplift those around you, and to do so by being creative and constructive. Any resonance for you there? (My wife, by the way, is a Priest cast Artisan. Her mission in life is to create something utterly new and original in a way that uplifts others.

      As for soul age… You don’t look like you’re hitting mid-life for a few years yet (you don’t have to correct me if I’m wrong!), so the chances are that as yet you are not quite living up to your “full height” in terms of soul age. In other words, it sounds like you are operating at the equivalent level of awareness of an early Mature soul, but after the soul-searching that kicks in around 35+ I wouldn’t be surprised if you found yourself stabilising around mid-Mature or possibly late Mature. It’s hard to be precise, not having psychic access to your profile! You can always pay one of the channels for a proper reading of course.

      Finally, if I were to try a rough guess at a couple of your personality overleaves, I would suspect Goal of Growth (very self-aware, needing to know the bigger picture), and possible a streak of Self-Deprecation as a chief feature. Hope that makes sense!

      Cheers

      Barry

    I have figured out that I am either a mature or old priest soul, though I’m more sure of the latter because, even though I am very keen on changing the world and positively impacting the lives of millions of people, I have this “tiredness” to me that I have read about in another article about old souls, and it does seem to make sense. It seems to appear as “laziness,” but it really is that “tiredness,” like I don’t want to burden myself with helping other people, but at the same time I really want and need to and feel that it is my life’s mission. Anyone know I can get rid of this “tiredness?”

    • 13 barry 11 Aug 2014 at 11:26 pm

      Hi Maria,

      Priest sounds likely. I would just caution against linking your “tiredness” with the “world weariness” that can afflict old souls. I’m not trying to say you’re not an old soul, it’s just that the lives of Mature souls are well known to be the most stressful and exhausting of all. (I’m a Mature soul myself and I have had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / M.E. for 5 or 6 years now. Caused, I believe, by a combination of stress, over-persistence (I don’t know when to stop) and a bout of illness that sent my physical systems over the edge.)

      Anyway, back to you. A quick thought comes to mind which may or may not be valid – your tiredness could be a sign that your soul energy isn’t really flowing, and it’s not flowing because you’re not doing whatever it is that brings you and your essence to life, whatever it is that fills you with enthusiasm and makes you feel alive. Do you have any sense of mission or life purpose that really motivates or excites you?

      If that’s way off target, just ignore.

      Cheers

      Barry

      • 14 Maria 13 Aug 2014 at 4:04 pm

        Hi Barry,

        Yes, what you have said appears to have relevance. I have done more reading on your website and it does appear that I do indeed have a mature priest soul. My head is almond shaped as well. It actually does make a lot of sense why you said my soul energy isn’t flowing; I’m not doing [at least not yet] not only what I enjoy doing, but commencing the action that fulfills my life’s purpose; to help other people realize their full potential and to promote welfare for all living beings, as well as to promote spirituality as a viable option to living one’s life. All of these ideas excite me! What I do for most of the day as of the present is bouncing a balloon, which allows me to relax and fantasize about the things I have mentioned. It seems like a huge step to actually get where I want to be, in which the “tiredness” seems to contribute to it, so it’s just easier to imagine what I want to do and do what I can as of now by signing petitions, starting petitions, and sending letters of concern to legislatures in helping promote the welfare of others. I even gave a twenty dollar bill to a homeless lady once because I try not to take my life for granted and realize the deep value of service to others, even though it wasn’t my money.

        • 15 barry 13 Aug 2014 at 7:49 pm

          Thanks Maria.
          Quick question: are you by any chance around 35-45?

          B

          • 16 Maria 14 Aug 2014 at 12:34 am

            No, I’m 19 actually.

            • 17 barry 18 Aug 2014 at 10:43 am

              Ah OK, so you’re not yet facing the mid-life crisis of “Why am I here? What am I to do?” In fact, you seem to have a good handle on that already.

              The thing about imagining rather than doing: I suspect you would get a lot from the teachings of Abraham, who is channelled by Esther Hicks. Their first book, Ask And It Is Given, turned my life around (and my wife’s).

              A quick summary: Life is always giving you what you focus on. Your consciousness is like a beacon sending signals out into the universe, and the universde responds by manifesting in your life whatever you are focusing on and willing to receive. So life will actually give you what you WANT or DESIRE – but only so long as (a) you consciously and explicitly KNOW what you want and focus on HAVING that, and (b) you don’t block it by focusing more attention on what you LACK, or believing that fulfilling your desires is impossible (life will just give you more of the lack or more unfulfilled-ness, if that’s what you focus on the most). Some people focus on their desires, but at the same time they focus on the problems they can see in achieving those desires, so then life gets a bit “stuck”.

              This might have some resonance for you, so I suspect the Abraham material will appeal to you.*

              *They also have a YouTube channel:
              ( http://www.youtube.com/user/AbrahamHicks ) and publications website ( http://www.abraham-hicks.com/lawofattractionsource/index.php ).

                Cool! Thanks for telling me about this book. I actually started to reaffirm myself everyday for three weeks already saying that I will be successful in achieving my goals as I truly believe I will be. I have decided to not focus on what I don’t have; I will do my part and.the universe will do its part. Speaking of which, not coincidentally, just before I started doing this, since July 31, for some reason, I been feeling a lot more positive as my severe depression seems to have greatly lessened after many years of living with it [I don't think it's medication since it hadn't helped in the past five years]. I still do get a little depressed, but for the first time ever, whenever I do, I still reaffirm myself that I will be successful or say something like that; otherwise I try to stay positive during these hard moments of my life by saying something of that nature. Thinking about this, I have just realized how all of this happened very shortly after I met someone very similar to me who is into spiritual concepts like I am; from her is when I first learned about the law of attraction [I just realized that now]. She showed me a technique that purportedly raises a person’s vibration that involves taking your hands and while moving them, have them over your body head to toe to the “point” you feel in your head. Perhaps all of this has something to do with it. Either way, since July 31, things have changed for the better. I no longer imagine, when bouncing the balloon, about unrealistic things as I have did for years but realistically imagine myself, with this body, and in acceptance of my tragic past, along with planning how I will get there, myself in the future I have carved out for myself. I am so glad to have found your website as I gained more incredible knowledge so thank you!

    HELLO! YOUR PAGE IS SO USEFUL AND SUCH A WELL OF INFORMATION. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
    I GOT A BIT OF TROUBLE FIGURING OUT MY SOUL AGE. I THINK I´M A PRIEST, WITH A WARRIOR CASTING. AND MY GOAL IS GROWTH. I HAD TO GO WITH MY GUTS ON THAT, BECAUSE ON THE MICHAEL TEACHINGS, THE WARRIOR FEATURES ARE VERY ME, BUT NOT ENTIRELY. AND THE PRIEST FEATURES ARE ALSO ME, BUT NOT SO IN THE PREACHY SIDE OR RELIGIOUS. I THOUGHT I WAS A MID-AGE MATURE, BUT I HAVE SOME FEATURES, O MAYBE THINKING, OF YOUNG SOULS, LIKE COMPETITION AND SUCCESS. BUT THEN, SEVERAL MATURE FEATURES APPLY TO ME ALSO. :S. HOW CAN I KNOW FOR SURE?
    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

    • 20 barry 25 Aug 2014 at 11:32 pm

      Hi Cristina

      I totally get what you mean! Looking at your posture in the main photo my first thought was Warrior. Then seeing your Facebook page background photo it’s like a Warrior convention. But yes you do also have a Priestly shape to your face, and a certain ‘gleam’ in the eyes. So Priest-cast Warrior seems pretty likely to me.

      If that’s the case, then it would mean that you are naturally feisty, physical, strong willed, protective, loyal, comradely, and drawn to personal challenges (hmm, like competitive sport for example!) — but, you would also feel most fulfilled if you can do all that in a way that serves some real good or higher purpose. In other words, uplifting and inspiring others through your Warrior talents.

      As for soul age, given that you look like you have a decade or more to go before age 35-40, you are almost certainly still manifesting a slightly “younger” perspective. (The 35-40-ish period is a turning point at which we want to let go of anything that isn’t really “who we are”, and feel a calling to become true to ourselves, including our role in essence (+casting) and our full soul age. So to feel “half-Young, half-Mature” at your age would be quite appropriate if you’re a Mature soul. This should hopefully be easy to see in later years.

      Also, don’t forget that Warriors have a competitive drive that is perfectly natural, but not necessarily the same as the competitiveness of Young souls. Warriors enjoy the thrill of competition, Young souls feel they must win the rat race.

      Hope this helps,

        IT DOES HELP A LOT!! THANK YOU!.
        I WAS THINKING THE SAME TODAY TOO, PRIEST CAST WARRIOR (BECAUSE I THINK I AM SURROUNDED BY WARRIORS JAJA, AND I THINK ONE SOULMATE IS TOO. BUT MY BEST GIRLFRIEND, IS NOT) . BUT, I READ AND I FEEL THAT WARRIORS ARE/ HAVE BEEN, EXTROVERT THEIR ENTIRE LIVES, AND I USED TO BE INTROVERT AND VERY SHY AND VULNERABLE WHEN YOUNGER (I AM 29 BY THE WAY), AND IT IS JUST RECENTLY THAT I AM OPENING MORE AND MORE TO THE WORLD AND PEOPLE…ALTHOUGH I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED BEEN IN THE SPOTLIGHT. SO, YOU THINK THAT MY PRIEST CAST, IS WHAT HAS ALWAYS MADE ME THINK ABOUT HIGHER THINGS AND THAT?…AND THAT IN THE NEXT COMING YEARS I AM GOING TO BECOME THE REAL ME? MY ESSENCE. :)
        PD. I HAVE READ YOUR PAGE THE ENTIRE WEEKEND AND NOW I AM IN THIS KINDA HAZE JAJA.
        THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

          Hi. I’m not sure that Warriors are particularly extrovert. Their high level of physical activity and their tendency to be team players could be taken as extroversion I suppose. But any Warrior can also take on introverted characteristics, such as the reserved mode, or emotional Centering, or the self-deprecation chief feature (character flaw / negative attitude). Childhood experiences can also leave their mark, causing shyness or inhibition. This is part of what the mid-life turning point is about: overcoming the past.

          PS. I know a Mature King who says he is an introvert and rather shy in one-to-one situations – but in front of any group he is such a natural leader and master, you’d never notice it.

          PPS. I should probably add for the record, there’s nothing wrong with introversion!

          B

            THERE ISNT AT ALL!!,
            ALTHOUGH, I BELIEVE MY MODE IS AGRESSION, ATTITUDE SPIRITUALIST. CENTERINGS NOT QUITE SURE.
            I HAVE TO SAY THAT I HAVE ALWAYS FELT THOSE SIDES OF ME, LIKE A DUALITY. READING THROUGH THIS PAGES IS FINALLY SHEDING SOME LIGHT ON THOSE FEELINGS.
            YOUR HELP IS INVALUABLE!,
            THANK YOU!,

    I find it hilarious that more children under the age of 18 have looked into this than adults. Is this because as a society we think we are above introspection or is i because you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. By the way i found this to be very immersing as i always thought i was a artisan is waa nice to know i was right. Although I kinda though i was a bit of a scholar and server as well.

      I would like to think it’s because I write in an accessible way that appeals to a younger audience!

      PS – check out the Casting page.
