5. The Teacher
The teacher personality often has many characteristics of other personality types. The difference is that they have an overpowering need to share their insights and to teach others how to improve their lives and the world.
Teachers may work in schools and colleges, but many writers, filmmakers, artists, musicians, museum and gallery curators have a strong element of the teacher personality type.
If you are a teacher personality you are probably very articulate in your words and ideas. You may have a particular form you like to use in your teaching, such as public speaking or art, but may also combine talents to produce new and innovative ways to share your knowledge with the world.
The teacher personality always has a strong aspect of being a student. Teachers must learn new things before they can share them. For this reason, teachers are lifelong learners, full of curiosity about the world and ideas. They also have the focus to thoroughly study subjects close to their hearts until they become experts in their field.
As a teacher type, you are good with people and instinctively understand what others need to learn and they way they will learn it best. You are not necessarily an extrovert, though. In fact, you may need to spend considerable time alone to study.
6. The Seeker
The Seeker personality type is always exploring the boundaries of the possible. The seeker is not limited by current ways of doing things or by old patterns of belief. They are neither stuck in the past or worrying about the future. They live in the only moment they know they can change – now.
If you are a seeker, you are constantly curious about all the possibilities in the world. You are probably very interested in spiritual ideas but you are practical, too, searching for solutions to humanities real world problems. You love to communicate because you are interested in how others perceive the world.
7. The Sage
The sage personality type always sees many sides to the same story. Sage personalities refuse to be put in a box and will rarely describe themselves in terms the world would understand. For example, they would not describe themselves as capitalists, or socialists, neither would they label themselves a follower of a particular religious creed.
As a sage, you understand that there are many things in the world that we do not yet understand, so you remain open to all possibilities. Your guiding principles are love, peace and unity and you work to break down barriers between people and promote mutual understanding.
You have let go of the egoic need to be right and you do not worry what others think of them. If you are a sage, you probably have little desire for material possessions, status or authority over others.
The ideas of the sage may be described as crazy, woo woo, or new age. However, sages don’t care how others perceive them as they allow an inner sense of oneness and love to be their guide. The sage never judges others, as they understand that all experiences and ways of being are valid.
All of these personality types are all equally important as they work in unison to bring forth new ideas and ways of living to the world. None of us can change the world alone; we need a combination of our unique personality traits to make a difference and move the world forward.
