Profile Line 6 Strengths & Challenges for 6 / 2s

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.

The Hermit likes to stay indoors, choosing to dedicate time to their passions while the world passes by.

While keeping to themselves is the default for this Profile type, your moves captivate others who will try to pull you outside. For Hermits determining the proper time to emerge is key.

It's important to remember that while solitude can be a beautiful thing, human connection is also necessary for our emotional and mental well-being. It may feel uncomfortable at first, but allowing yourself to open up and share your passions with others can lead to new opportunities and growth.

Don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone and try new things. You may find that there are people out there who share your interests and can help you expand your creative horizons. And remember, it's okay to take breaks and retreat into your own world when needed - finding balance is key.

So embrace your inner Hermit, but don't forget to step into the light every once in a while. You never know what amazing things may come your way.
