    Type 4: The Individualist (or Romantic)

    Ego Fixation: Melancholy
    Holy Idea: Origin
    Basic Fear: They have no identity or personal significance
    Motivations: To find themselves and their significance
    Virtue To Learn: Equanimity (Emotional Balance)

    The Holy Idea of "Origin" is to do with the understanding that everything derives from our Soul, or source of consciousness. The distortion here occurs when our personality or ego is searching outside of itself for an "Origin" and in doing so, romanticizes a quest for the "holy grail" that never quite seems to be attainable.

    The Individualist is usually a self-aware, sensitive, and reserved person. They are emotionally honest, creative, and personal, but can also be moody and self-conscious. The Individualist has a tendency to withdraw from others due to feeling vulnerable and defective, and often feels disdain for ordinary ways of living. This type of person typically has problems with melancholy, self-indulgence, and self-pity.

    The main obstacle for The Individualist is that they believe themselves to be "special" as a result of their longing for the origin of everything, or their perpetual search for that which will finally complete them (think of the stereotypical poet).

    This defense mechanism of feeling "more special than others" can often be rooted in feelings of abandonment in early years (either physical or emotional) resulting in doubts of self-worth. In later years this results in the desire to compensate for these feelings of inadequacy by becoming important in some way.

    Examples: Edgar Allen Poe, Anne Rice, Virginia Woolf, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Pyotr I Tchaikovsky, Johnny Depp.

    Type 1

    Type 1: The Perfectionist (Reformer)
    Ego Fixation: Resentment

    Holy Idea: Perfection

    Basic Fear: Being corrupted, imbalanced, being bad

    Motivations: Being right, improving everything, consistency, avoiding criticism.

    Virtue to Learn: Serenity

    The primary point of fixation of this personality is the "Holy Idea" of Perfection. Holy Perfection is the notion that everything is perfect as it is and nothing needs to change.

    However, the Perfectionist's personality distorts this understanding and forms comparative judgments, believing that some things are "more right" than others. This is true on the subjective level of the ego personality, but not on the absolute level of the Holy Ideas.

    For this reason The Perfectionist tends to resent external reality as it often fails to live up to their ideals. The Perfectionist is often conscientious and ethical, with a strong sense of right and wrong, and makes an excellent teacher, crusader and advocate for change, always striving to improve the world.

    At the core of The Perfectionist is the fear of making mistakes because the resentment they direct towards the world is often redirected to themselves.

    Examples: Confucius, Plato, Joan of Arc, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Margaret Thatcher.

    Type 5: The Observer (or Investigator)

    Ego Fixation: Stinginess
    Holy Idea: Omniscience
    Basic Fear: Being useless, helpless, or incapable
    Motivations: Wanting to possess knowledge, desiring to understand the environment, needing to have everything figured out
    Virtue To Learn: Non-Attachment

    The Holy Idea of "Omniscience" refers to the profound notion of diversity within unity—of not just seeing the whole forest, but craving to observe the intricacy of every single detail within it. Omniscience can be likened to the desire to have "God's knowledge."

    The Observer tends to believe that they are deeply separated from existence; disconnected, isolated, not part of the details of the Whole. Accordingly, The Observer sets about observing life with stingy involvement; with minimal participation, minimizing personal interactions, and even actively hides away from reality.

    The Observer's inner solitude is the key element behind their ability to be alert, insightful, and curious, often developing complex ideas and skills. Independent, innovative, and inventive, The Observer can also sometimes get wound up in their abstract thoughts and imaginary constructs.

    It is not uncommon for The Observer to become detached, yet high-strung, and intense. They typically have problems with eccentricity, nihilism, and isolation.

    Examples: Albert Einstein, Vincent van Gogh, Friedrich Nietzsche, Emily Dickinson, Agatha Christie, Salvador Dali, Bill Gates.

    Type 6: The Loyalist

    Ego Fixation: Cowardice
    Holy Idea: Faith
    Basic Fear: Being without support and guidance
    Motivations: Wanting to have security, desiring to feel supported and guided by others, needing to have certitude and reassurance, having the tendency to fight against anxiety
    Virtue To Learn: Courage

    The Holy Idea of "Faith" reflects the understanding that we are always connected to our deeper self: our Soul. This understanding is not based on conventional blind faith, but is rather the result of direct experience. The nature of the Soul is understood to be fundamentally good, innocent, and worthy. When there is a failure to realize Faith, then there is a resulting doubt, mistrust, and cynicism directed towards other people. This also results in the inability to trust ones own deeper self, and even amounts to questioning whether the deeper self really exists or not.

    This is why the Loyalist develops a suspicious disposition; one that views others and oneself as inherently flawed and untrustworthy. For this reason The Loyalist is often cautious, indecisive, emotionally reactive, defiant, and rebellious. They typically have problems with self-doubt and suspicion, especially with authority figures.

    Once The Loyalist does learn to trust, however, they are highly reliable, hard-working, responsible, and trustworthy people.

    Examples: Malcolm X, Marilyn Monroe, Eminem, Tom Hanks, Mark Twain, Sigmund Freud, Michael Moore.

    Type 9: The Mediator (or Peacemaker)


    Ego Fixation: Indolence
    Holy Idea: Love
    Basic Fear: Loss and separation
    Motivations: Wanting to create harmony in their environment, needing to avoid conflict and tension, desiring to preserve things as they are, wanting to resist whatever upsets or disturbs them
    Virtue to Learn: Right Action

    The Holy Idea of "Love" is the idea that the universe is not just intrinsically good, loving, and lovable, but that so are we at our very core. When we don't possess this understanding of life, the result is often a loss of self-esteem, and a general sense of personal inadequacy or inferiority.

    Because of this, The Mediator develops the idea that one's sense of personal worth can only be achieved by playing the "peacemaker," or by perpetually serving others and putting their interests above one's own.

    This makes The Mediator prone to passive aggression, laziness, and general denial of personal feelings. This laziness is not a physical one but a mental and spiritual one that refuses to see or resist change, resulting in stubbornness. This laziness also creates the tendency of simplifying problems and minimizing anything upsetting so as to reduce conflict.

    On the other hand, The Mediator tends to be supportive, creative, trusting and stable.

    Examples: Claude Monet, Carl Jung, George Lucas, Woody Harrelson, Walt Disney, Morgan Freeman, Abraham Lincoln.

    Type 2: The Giver

    Ego Fixation: Flattery and Manipulation
    Holy Idea: Will, Freedom
    Basic Fear: Being unloved
    Motivations: Wanting to be loved, wanting to express their feelings for others, needing to be appreciated and valued, wanting to prove themselves
    Virtue to Learn: Humility

    The basis of The Giver type personality arises from a distortion of the Holy Ideas of Will and Freedom. Holy Freedom is the idea that all acts by a human are not separate from the totality, or "Will," of the cosmos. From an absolute perspective, it is impossible to act in any way that is not part of the will of existence.


    When this understanding is lost or distorted, it results in a personality type that anxiously believes itself to be separate from existence. Therefore, The Giver tends to habitually seek the approval of others, and sometimes may even resort to manipulation or flattery to gain approval. This people pleasing defense mechanism was learned early on in life as a result of the belief that when others are happy, safety ensues.

    On the other hand, Giver's are empathetic, sincere, and warm-hearted people. They are friendly, generous, and self-sacrificing, but can also be sentimental, flattering, and people-pleasing.

    The Giver typically has problems with possessiveness and with acknowledging their own needs before others.

    Examples: Eleanor Roosevelt, Nancy Reagan, Stevie Wonder, Elizabeth Taylor, Martin Sheen, Timothy Treadwell (Grizzly Man
