What does it say about the Educator? I can see, feel, and respect that about you Arc. You have great patience as all great educators do.

Some educator I am. lol I didn't even notice the cells with the labels.


Educator

Educators are drawn to teaching. If this is your soul type, you’ll have a gift for persuasion that can be used in a conventional setting, such as a classroom, or in a less traditional venue like the boardroom or an online discussion forum. Getting your point across is something that comes naturally to you.

Since education is your purpose, if you do end up in a classroom, you’ll have no problem with repetition—going over the same point until it sinks in, or teaching the same subject year after year. Whether it’s in a classroom or in a less formal setting, you may show remarkable patience when it comes to explaining your point. It is important for you to know you’re being understood. You may have a tendency to be long-winded or to adopt an air of superiority at times.

Most Educators have a desire to demonstrate what they know to others. There’s little point in having knowledge without having students to pass it on to, which is why you will generally be comfortable in front of a class or other groups of people, knowing you have much to offer. Family members make great students and may become a captive audience at times.

Much of what you know may come from reading and study, but you may also have natural insight into a subject, often accumulated over many lifetimes. Educators are comfortable in academic pursuits and enjoy acquiring knowledge, particularly through books.

What we take ourselves to be doing when we think about what is the case or how we should act is something that cannot be reconciled with a reductive naturalism, for reasons distinct from those that entail the irreducibility of consciousness. It is not merely the subjectivity of thought but its capacity to transcend subjectivity and to discover what is objectively the case that presents a problem....Thought and reasoning are correct or incorrect in virtue of something independent of the thinker's beliefs, and even independent of the community of thinkers to which he belongs.

Caregiver

The quintessential characteristic of a Caregiver type is the desire to take care of others. For this reason, Caregivers may be drawn to the long-term care of children or the elderly. Though some Caregivers find their need to nurture satisfied by raising a family, many others seek out work in such venues as schools, hospitals, and animal shelters. The long-term care of those with Alzheimer’s, autism, and mental illness often becomes the responsibility of Caregivers.

If you recognize yourself as a Caregiver, you may already have noticed the tendency to put others’ needs ahead of your own. This trait makes it essential that you go out of your way to take care of yourself as well as those around you. Remember that you’re no use to others if you’re not healthy or fit enough to help them.

You are loyal to the extreme, and you guard those who are entrusted to your care with your life. Fighting another person’s battles can be important if that individual is unable to stand up for themselves, though you should be cautious not to disempower those in your care by not allowing them to do things for themselves.

Your empathy allows you to understand nonverbal emotional signals. This ability will tell you when someone needs your help, and how best to assist them. It is common for Caregiver types to intuitively know what someone needs at any given time.

You can learn more about your soul type and how it influences your soul’s age, mission, talents, and challenges in Ainslie MacLeod’s book, The Instruction: Living the Life Your Soul Intended.

I think this questionnaire is crap, to be honest.

First of all, it's obviously measuring your own self-image, not the way you really are. The questions are: where to you rank yourself.

Second, some of the questions are really bad questions: are you a leader or a follower? Well, neither! Nobody follows me and I don't follow anybody. I'm kind of "outside" of things. Or the question about: do you like to argue with people? Across the internet, yeah, but in person, no.... sooo, which is it?

This is why I'm a jack of all trades. For most of the questions, I was like: Idunno. I'll pick 3.

Very!

It would be a lot like Eric's Impressions of ILP People.

A lot less accurate than self-administered testing, but still interesting.

The validity of this test seem to exclude the + or - factor of possible error, some or all of which depend on the truthfulness of given answers. It may be a pure projection of an ideal sense of self, and it's supposed correspondence with its interjected value.
The deflection may vary wildly, even when it appears to the test taker that it is his honest opinion of himself. It may not represent the degree of that, of which people over or undervalue each question, since some untruthfullness have been so deeply repressed.

A missing question such as 'do I tend to over or undervalue myself' should be relevant, and governing.
The test, even if posed by a psychic's standard, seem too simplistic.

People always undervalue themselves. I was just chatting about this, it's the reason that the world is so screwed up, that people do not understand their worth. If you find it difficult to value yourself, you will be unable to value elsewhere.

Again, it's pretty even. Not knowing you very well meant a lot of 3's down the page. Also, on the rare occasion when I felt I did have a definite answer, it went to the extreme (1 or 5). It seems there's rarely any uncertainty in the minds of other when they think they know something about a person.

I agree with gib for the post part, Wendy. I had about the same experience which he did. The way some of the questions were shaped made it rather difficult to give an honest answer. I clicked in "3" kind of often myself because as humans we are, at least I am not completely this or that. Some things are simply not so black and white.

These things are not an exact science - and I think that it is true that some will sometimes be lured in to click in a response that shows their selves in a better light though I may be wrong here.

I don't consider myself to be a spiritualist or a leader - I don't want to lead or follow. I can kind of understand where the "educator" part came from though I don't like that term either with reference to myself.

I kind of enjoyed the hunter...............
