Profile Line 4 Strengths & Challenges for 4 / 6s

The Opportunist is a connector, and master networker who helps spread information.

You are externally focused and so are able to see people clearly for who they are and use that to your advantage. Connecting people is innate to you and you’re likely the center of a large friendly network. 

Heartfelt and selfless you approach leadership preoccupied about the groups well-being, and may be stubborn about the path forward. With your helpful, well-meaning nature, rejection of your leadership can be a hard thing for you to stomach.

Despite your many talents, rejection can be difficult for you to handle. You put your heart and soul into everything you do, and when others don't see the value in your contributions, it can be hard not to take it personally. However, you have a strong support system in your wide network of friends and colleagues, and they are always there to lift you up when you need it. It's important that you maintain a good network and lean on them often.

The Role-Model is compassionate and focused on ensuring the safety of the bigger picture. This translates into an air of detached authoritarianism and high idealism that you use to map out a future vision for the collective. Others find it easy to follow your visions.

You are unique from other profiles in that your life must pass through 3 different phases to fully realize this Role-Model potential.

The first phase is self-discovery, where you must identify your values, strengths, and weaknesses.

In the second phase, you'll learn how to inspire and motivate others to achieve a common goal. You'll need to master the art of effective communication and develop empathy for others to truly understand their needs and motivations.

The final phase is about legacy-building. You must ensure that your vision and values are passed on to future generations. To do this, you'll need to mentor and guide others, and inspire them to become leaders in their own right. This phase requires a deep commitment to your cause and a willingness to let go of control, trusting that others will carry on your legacy.

Overall, the Role-Model profile is challenging but rewarding.
