    You are the Sage

    58% Innocent, 38% Orphan, 42% Warrior, 50% Caregiver, 75% Seeker, 75% Lover, 38% Destroyer, 75% Creator, 64% Magician, 71% Ruler, 79% Sage and 54% Fool!

    Goal: Truth

    Fear: Deception

    Response to Dragon/Problem: Transcend it

    Task: Attain enlightenment

    Gift: Wisdom, non-attachment

    Addictions: Being right, tranquilizers

    Sages have little or no need to control or change the world; they just want to understand it. The Sage’s path is the journey to find out the truth– about ourselves, our world, and the universe. However, it is not simply about finding knowledge, but about becoming wise. The challenge of the Sage is to decode the clue and solve the underlying riddle of existence. They seek to cultivate and attitude of dispassionate reflection so that they can experience real truth. The Sage merely watches the action, while looking for the underlying truth.

    Shadow Sage:

    The Shadow Sage is not so much unattached as cut off from reality. S/he is so obsessed by non-attachment that s/he cannot commit to people, projects, or ideas. Sometimes a Negative Sage deludes her/himself with the idea that his provides him/her with freedom, but s/he is not free at all. The negative Sage is addicted to being perfect and truthful and right and has no tolerance of normal human feelings or vulnerabilities. Such a Sage often tends towards ascetic practices and constantly derides the self or others for any sign of not being perfect.

    Shadow Sages also tend to try to make the world seem less mysterious by limiting the number of acceptable ways of perceiving reality. Such individuals are also incapable of acknowledging the way that their own subjective biases colour their supposedly rational findings. Shadow Sages typically want to control knowledge in such a way that it is not threatening by focusing on a style that correspond to their learning style. Knowledge, then, becomes a way of showing superiority to others. Their primary focus thus becomes not on the attainment of wisdom itself, but on the evaluation of others. Whatever relative truth they have discovered is identified with absolute truth, and their primary focus is in guarding this truth from assaults by the barbarians.

    Really?! THAT'S flattering

    You are the Fool
    71% Innocent, 21% Orphan, 71% Warrior, 88% Caregiver, 71% Seeker, 88% Lover, 67% Destroyer, 71% Creator, 72% Magician, 75% Ruler, 75% Sage and 92% Fool!

    ***Goal: Enjoyment

    Fear: Nonaliveness

    Response to Dragon/Problem: Play tricks on it

    Task: Trust in the process

    Gift: Joy, freedom

    Addictions: Excitement, cocaine, alcohol

    The Fool is the archetype most helpful in dealing with the absurdities of the modern world and with faceless, amorphous modern bureaucracies– places where no one takes personal responsibility, rules are expected to be followed mo matter how absurd they might be, and the tables are incredibly stacked against individual effectiveness. A Jester does not merely provide entertainment, but also points out the failings of the kingdom to a wise Ruler. Thus, Fools are often the most serious archetype of all. The Fool often violates social norms in humourous ways to avoid provoking undue hostility.

    A Fool’s politics are anarchistic. Fools are resilient, and are willing to stand up and try again despite failing. The Fool enjoys the contest of the wits even in the most dangerous or offensive of circumstances, and hates being bored.



    Shadow Fool:

    When such energy is not allowed, it simply goes underground, and in doing so becomes negative, undermining force. The Shadow Fool delights in breaking rules, regardless of the consequences. Unbridled and undisciplined sensuality, madness, and multiple personalities or personas are usually the results of the force of the Shadow Fool. The Shadow Fool has an unrealistic vision of what is required for survival, emotions, and relationships and believes that in order to succeed at conventional norms, one must work all of the time, so there is no use in undertaking any conventional task.

    What's hilarious is that I noticed in your second post just now that the Creator should be balanced with the virtues of the Destroyer. Right on...

    Actually it makes sense, apparently. Sage and Fool would be complementary attitudes to balance one another like Creator and Destroyer.

    Sage makes me think of an owl. Owls are not cool.

    What's wrong with owls? Did you choke on a Tootsie Pop as a child?
