. . . This is your story
You seek what’s known and what you can be certain of.
Your unique point of view is formed by your blend of the three foundational priorities of mind: Past (Certainty), Present (Probability), and Future (Possibility). The result of this blending of priorities is your thinking style and it defines the value you bring to every aspect of your life. It is what motivates you and it shapes your personality. It is also at the root of most of our differences in the way we each think.
Your way of thinking moves things from idea to result. A lot of this, you’ve probably realized, has to do with how you manage your time and which ideas you use to reach your goals. Things change, new ideas emerge, better ways of getting things done are discovered, you are constantly mindful of making sure that you can pull it all off. So many possibilities, so little time. The key word is focus. You are a master at managing chaos; focus is your ace card.
You will always blend Possibility with Probability managing new challenges while keeping up with the practical aspects of day-to-day life. Use this ability as your foundation and align your efforts with what you do so well.

Maximize Your Strengths
See future opportunities and use all of your planning and structuring skills to take advantage of them.
- Do let your intuition guide you and follow up your inspiration with practical skills.
- Do as much creating as you can. The more you create, the better you feel. And don’t just create in your mind: make it a reality!
Reflect on the past, uphold tradition, and take the time to gather and analyze detailed information to have facts backing up what you’re doing.
- Don’t get into a position where you need to study endlessly it’s not something you naturally take to.
- Don’t let anyone use facts and statistics against you. If you need to, go get your own facts or statistics to support your claims.
What you bring to the world
Stupid is as stupid does. How often have you cringed watching people around you make the dumbest decisions? While intelligence is about cramming your head with useful or useless information, you see wisdom as something much more organic. It’s a collection of intelligence, experience, inventiveness, adaptability, logic and imagination. It’s something that marks us as humans, something a computer will never be able to do.
You didn’t learn this kind of wisdom from sitting around and reading books. While you might recognise that books have some value in the world, you’re the kind of person who learns from going out and doing something. You have a wisdom learned from taking life by the horns. It’s a hands-on kind of wisdom, down in the trenches, dealing with real situations rather than those dreamed up and printed on a page.
People respect your down-to-earth wisdom. Do friends come to you for practical advice? This is because you play the hands you’re dealt and are great at landing on your feet. You’ve got the wisdom of a survivor, a savvy and sharp sense for what needs to get done and what will work.
Sure your wisdom is cumulative, but it doesn’t generally rely on past information. You’re wise enough to realise that in this ever-changing world, new ideas and rules need to be made to deal with every new situation.
Your wisdom is about adaptability – how can you shift what’s happening now to accommodate these new changes. This is the way you use your wisdom—to see things as an organic whole and take in all possibilities before sharing your thoughts. It’s a good plan and as long as you remember to be as fair and impartial as you can, it says great things about your wisdom.
The Leader brings ideas and planning
We all have relationships, they’re a natural and important part of most people’s lives. Why is it that even in our most intimate and important relationships we struggle, at times, to make things work, to understand each other, to see eye-to-eye? The simple fact is that we do not think the same way. We each bring our own point of view and use that to further what is important to us in the moment, whether it be in our private life, our work or with friends.
Knowing how we think—specifically our archetype—helps us to hear with more compassion. To listen and hear beyond a person’s words. To understand where they are coming from, what they need, and where they are trying to get to in conversation with us.
