The Roles (or Soul Types) / Re: How do I figure out my Role?
« on: April 17, 2011, 05:22:39 AM »
Judging by the pictures, I'd maybe be Sage or Priest.  I tried to figure out PM to send you a picture of me to see if you have an idea, but I couldn't figure out how it works.   ::)

Priest has been one of the possibilities, and it's true that after my life fell apart through sickness I've been trying to find an all-consuming mission to "solve" my life, but I haven't been able to find one, maybe because I want to help in so many areas that I'm pulled in too many directions and don't know which is "mine," and sometimes Earth’s problems seem overwhelming.  Is my mission to help people, pets, wild animals, plants?  I have great ideas about how to "save" the world and if I was appointed dictator I’d have it straightened up in no time, lol.  It is upsetting and irritating to me that people don't like to look at the truth of what they do (and I'm not exempting myself) and allow themselves to be run by superstition and those with power and money, and one of my main life lessons seems to be to learn more compassion rather than withdraw from people who aren’t alternative because their values are so different than mine.  Unless, of course, they specifically need me, and then I jump right in to help.  But when it comes right down to it, I tend to back off from confrontations and don't sound much at all like a Priest in the book 7 Personality Types.  On the other hand, I just looked again at the personality test on this site and can see why you’d bring it up.  hmmm...  I’m not sure what to think.  I am very sensitive to not “crusading” and pushing people where they don’t want to go.  So, okay, I can see Priest as a possibility if it’s according to this site, but not the high-powered individual in Elizabeth Puttick’s book who frequently can’t have friends but followers instead, and who desert their families because they’re always crusading - that doesn’t sound like me at all, and I’m not a leader in the least, more a loner who loves to hang out with people who are like me - open-minded, alternative or fun-loving works for me.  Plus, I move on when things get tough, and one of my main life lessons has obviously been to break me of that.  ::)  Okay, this sounds garbled, but I wanted to think it through.  Thanks for bringing it up, John - your thoughts were very interesting.

I contacted a channeler and he said it would be days to weeks before I get my chart.  In the meantime, my SO and I tried to figure out my strongest gifts and came up with the following:

Ability to enjoy life in that even the smallest things can frequently make me happy.  It almost seems to be a little part of my mission to help people see that life isn't all drudgery and that we all need to take time to have fun and play.

I'm strong in common-sense logic and can usually see the point where logic has failed.

Two psychologists told me I'm gifted at spotting people's games.

I enjoy going deeply into who people are, their deepest fears to their this life or beyond dreams.  I can at times help them via logic to sort out their issues, and I love getting people to talk about their dreams.  I’m not always good at putting people at ease, and having a choice between visionary and healer archetypes, I’m more a visionary, though that’s not a major strength.

Putting all that together...  It’s kind of a mish-mash.  :D  I realized today that I know the *way* I do things, such as random/spontaneous according to Energy Profiling, but it’s harder to sort out *what* I’m good it, which is what Roles are about.  I also realized that I prefer being a Sage but am better at being a Scholar, maybe because Scholar has been my main gift all along and maybe because I’ve been pushed into a Scholar-type role for much of my life so I’ve been strengthening my secondary and haven’t had as much practice at my primary role.  This has been a years-long issue of mine, trying to sort out which of those two parts of me are more at the heart of who I am, so maybe I’ll learn the answer through MT.

Reading through some of the posts at this forum, I can see I have a lot of studying to do before I can understand and join conversations intelligently.  I thought Enneagrams were complex, but MT is much more so!  I’m an Enneagram 7w6, possibly sx/so, if that means anything to anyone.  So I might do some posts anyway or might wait until I’ve read some more about the MT and have received my chart.

Elizabeth, that's a great chart - thanks!  I'm going through it now, and so far I seem to be a little toward Scholar.  But then again, with other parts of the site I seem more Sage.  I see what you mean, about thinking you're a certain Role because other aspects of your chart give that feeling.  Still, when I look throughout my life as a whole, I don't see much of Artisan, Server, Warrior, King or Priest.  Priest was in the running for a little while, since spirituality has been such an important part of the way I look at situations, but I don't have the charisma or drive to change things that a Priest has.  I might get upset about what people are doing to each other, to pets, to the environment, but I just lay down until the feeling passes, like some people do when they consider exercising.   ;D  I tend to like to help people as I come across them by helping them straighten out their thinking so they can see their problems more clearly.  Okay, I think I got sidetracked.   ::)  I'm going back to look at the chart.

Dave, it's not the "AT" that confuses me but the "MT," as in, no, he's talking about this site, not a mountain.   ;)


Wow, that must have been fascinating to experience!  I've read his books a couple times and would love to try it out some day, especially since I've spent years trying to figure out which of two directions to go as my life purpose - I'm equally drawn to both.  I did read your article about it - thanks for posting!

I went to Michael Newton's site and didn't see any hypnotists in the Washington D.C. area specifically, but maybe there are some nearby.

Have you read the Michael Newton books, such as Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls?  He specializes in between lives and has trained hypnotists in his technique of deep hypnosis, which might also be helpful for past-life regression.  I don't know if any would be in your area, but it might be worth a look.

Helenread, it took me 3 years and 9-10 books to find out my Myers-Briggs type, and it’s still a little shaky. aargh!  I know this will go at least a little faster, if for no other reason than I can have a channeler help me.

I think deep inside I feel more like a Sage, but I don't really fit a lot of what the info says about Sages.  I am very expressive in real life and I *live* for insights, but I don't like to be the center of attention and don't tell stories very often.  Even though I'm older, I still bounce around and get excited a lot - I also live for fun and excitement - and I don't know if that equates to Sage or is entirely separate from Michael Teachings.  Are Scholars ever like that, I wonder?  I'm female, but don't usually know how to talk to females, and I'm an absolutely whiz at one-on-ones with males - they think I'm fascinating.  This isn't bragging but trying to figure out the Sage thingy, since I'm a Sage one-on-one but not much in groups - I wonder if that counts?  Edit to add:  I love large groups, I'm just better at one-on-one.  I'm definitely not a Server, though.  To confuse things, I also like to help people and do so mainly with logic.  I'd be a great philosopher if they hung out shingles the way psychologists do.

"Just develop some patience..."  Give me a few lifetimes and I likely will.   :D  Thanks for your comments!

Dave, this site is so extensive that I haven't seen the channeled transcripts yet, but will head over there.  I did find an article that discussed using multiple channels and why the first one has the best chance of being correct, and I hear what you're saying about the biases.  Once I have a report, or maybe a couple, from channelers, if it doesn't make sense I’ll contact you.  Thanks for the offer.  :)

Welcome, Chiara!  Though you did sign up before me.   :D

I've been into things spiritual since my early 20s and divided that interest with my interest in partying (no drugs, etc.), rock dancing, running around in nature, and researching whatever catches my interest.

I hope to get a channeling soon so people have a better understanding of who I am.

I've come across other personality typing methods and all have been helpful and interesting but none have been connected to spiritual issues in such a postive way as the Michael Teachings are, and none go into such depth.  I ended up in a life situation where I somewhat lost who I am, and yes, I've also been surrounded for most of my life by people who think I'm eccentric because of my beliefs and my need for freedom.  It's taken the study of a couple methods of personality typing and looking into who I really am to help find myself, and it's been a worthwhile adventure because though I was being who I was when I was younger, it was in an unconscious sense.  Now the main question facing me is whether my core Role is to be a Sage or Scholar (edit:  or possibly Priest), though I'm interested in everything the Michael Teachings have to offer.

Thanks, Dave.  I did go through the groupings and from that and from reading other info, narrowed my Role to likely Sage or Scholar.  I know a typical Sage and Scholar in real life and both are full-blown examples.  The Scholar would likely laugh at the thought that I'm a Scholar as would the Sage at my being a Sage.  Whatever I am, it's a more low-key version than what the websites and the book I'm reading say about the Roles, though the thought that I'm any other role just doesn't make sense.

I was going to ask you if I could ask any channelers if they could PM me if they'd be available to give me a reading within a week, since I'd like to get going on this.  Would that be against the forum rules?  If so, I did see the page that lists channelers and I'll start contacting them.   Maybe I have Impatience as a Chief Feature.   ;)

Thanks, I'll do that!  Any recommendations as to the best of the best, the channeler(s) who most often get it right?  If this has a chance of hurting anyone's feelings, either PM or just don't answer.

Hi!  I've been reading "7 Personality Types," by Elizabeth Puttick, and the Michael Teachings were mentioned so I googled and found this website.  After reading through part of this site (which is extensive and great! btw) and jumping ahead in the book, I've decided either I'm a goofy Scholar or an expressive but shy and not always wanting to be center of attention Sage.  I live for insights, ideas, knowledge and hanging out in nature (for excitement over plants, animals and backcountry sports, not as much for peace), and I pretty much don't ever like being alone, though I'm somewhat in the middle of introvert and extrovert when it comes to talking to people, partly because I'm so alternative it's hard to find people with my interests and values and partly because of the shyness.  To cover both eventualities, I found an AV that expresses both Roles.   :D

So do most people get a channeling in order to sort out their Role?  I'm a little hesitant to just pick one, in case it's wrong.
