As an NiTe I— you are a Worldview type, inescapably drawn to observe the world from a panoramic historical perspective, aiming to understand the essential narratives, events and movements that define the state of the world, whether at the local or global level. You aim to understand the process involved in technological or cultural shifts from one thing to another and you formulate long information chains that link together these shifts by their mutual associations. As you do so, you come to view the universe as a holistic tapestry where events are expressions of timeless patterns manifesting themselves repeatedly in different eras, each time a little differently but always isomorphic to their fundamental truths. You’re attuned to these patterns and you come to see how they’re the connecting lines through which all events, local or cosmic, arise and transpire. You may come to believe that they govern all universal effects, influencing all other layers of reality independent of time or locality. Thus, you study these patterns with a deep interest, identifying how contemporary events and situations are positioned across these canonical, convergent lines. Over time this will prompt an internal landscape to arise in you that is created from these datasets, allowing you to elaborate on the conditions surrounding a given event or situation with exhaustive breadth. In conversations, this can cause you to drift into long monologues, unraveling a topic and all of its associated information in order to paint a complete picture of what you see.
This exhaustive array of facts will inescapably make you an anticipator of outcomes, for better or worse. Your memorized archive of changes across time will guide you to take the long-term view, manifesting in an appreciation for historical consequences. And because of your internal map of the local or global landscape, you’ll inevitably uncover trends that you sense will lead to hazards or disasters. While others may be quick to propose naïve solutions to immediate problems, you constantly ask yourself “how would this affect the overall landscape in the long term?” and your breadth of information will supply the material from which to wager probabilities and cast predictions. Thus, you tend to have a level of prudence about you, independent of your age. You are generally a cautious person with conservative tendencies, and you notice warning signs quickly.
Sometimes the warnings you identify are connected to large institutions and social bodies. When this happens, your attention may turn to those in power and what they’re doing wrong in their leadership. This will direct your investigation into the details of the political structures of society, such as their foundational documents, the circumstances of their creation, their core doctrines and how they progressed into their current states. To get a complete mental handle of the situation, you’ll immerse yourself in learning the bureaucratic details, laws and bills, that contribute to the current situation. You view the situation from a logistical perspective, noticing how the economics of a system are operating either towards or away from the desired outcomes or needs of individuals. You focus on the inefficiencies inherent in processes within a pipeline, and you have a utilitarian mindset which seeks for solutions to be implemented in a legislative or pragmatic fashion. You sense that society needs to have a wiser approach to its operation, and a tradition of teaching in general, if it’s to thrive. To this effect, you like offering guidance and are worried whenever there is no mechanism of guidance in place for society. This is part of your motivation for criticizing politics,as you want them to lead with wisdom. The institutions that we trust with our lives should be dependable, and you see the devastating effects that would result if this isn’t addressed.
But your own involvement in politics will be minor, as you feel you’d be of greater service as a commentator than as an actor on the political stage itself. While you may have a lot to say about the societal situations, in day to day life you have a phlegmatic and lethargic disposition. You are slow, lumbering and steady – prone to drift through datasets in a meandering fashion. You spend your time attending to matters of personal necessity while remaining ever watchful, perhaps woeful, of the situation outside your window. Yet, being so inclined to look out the window with cautious eyes, your relationship to the spontaneous present will be stunted. People may see you as stiff and may encourage you to loosen up more, to let go of inhibitions or take things easier.
Getting into a state of playfulness and innocent flow will be a challenge for you, as doing risky things that require no forethought may seem frivolous and foolish. Yet despite whatever conscious critique you may feel for such frivolity, there will be a secret,perhaps unconscious, envy in you towards those who are blissfully carefree and unburdened by thoughts of the future. While your attention is naturally attuned to the eternal view of things, you understand how eternity and the present moment are a holistic unit. Thus, you may develop a spiritual idealization of absolute “presence” in the moment as a gateway towards flowing seamlessly across these cosmic trendlines; existing in complete sync with eternity through all visceral and sensory experiences. Your unconscious may view this missing facet, which can experience a direct contact with life and is able to exist without fear, as a spiritual aspiration within you. Locked within your prudence and maturity is a youthful purity and readiness to just “be.” In rare occasions, this facet will come out of you in episodes of uninhibited play that remind you once again what the purpose of your precautions is for in the first place; it’s for the preservation of the ability to live.
Seelie > Unseelie:
As for your emotional disposition, if you are seelie then your managerial tendencies, your engineering mindset and your talent for logistics, may cause some to suspect you of being cold and militant at first glance. They may wonder if you’re overly strict and insensitive to people, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. While you do have a problem-solver’s mind, you care deeply about others. You’re attuned to the pain of underprivileged minorities and animal life alike. You’ll fight for the underdog and you hate to see anyone thrown under the buss. You’ll take whatever actions you can to spread awareness of these issues, and you channel your logistical talents towards those aims. Still, at times it may be difficult to convey your compassion in a believable way, and some people may describe you as being abrasive due to the snippy or snappy way you talk. But over time, as people come to know you, they’ll find out that you’re a gentle soul underneath.
Unseelie > Seelie:
As for your emotional disposition, you are an unseelie Conductor, meaning you are tough-minded, business-oriented and attuned to the practical effects of actions. But because of your managerial tendencies and your talent for logistics, at first glance some may suspect you of being cold and unapproachable. They may wonder if you’re overly strict and insensitive to people. And while your presentation is a little forthcoming to some, you do care deeply about others – especially those closest to you. You will sacrifice enormously and go out of your way to provide for those you love and for those you feel really need help. You’ll fight for the underdog and you hate to see anyone thrown under the buss.
However, you also have your standards regarding what counts as genuine need. Unless a person’s been a target of some tragic misfortune, you believe people should pull themselves up by their bootstraps and not depend on others to pay for the cost of their inadequacy. When something or someone is operating sub-optimally, you believe that calling it out is always the most direct path to improvement. You don’t like beating around the bush and you’re blunt about what you value or devalue. You see personal accountability as very important, and you value personal agency for yourself but also for society. Some may see you as insensitive, and view your beliefs as harsh or unkind, but you ultimately seek fairness and justice in all areas of life. While others may see your approach as cruel, you see it as cruel to enable people to remain stuck in a bad place and not learn how to rise into their own power. You intuitively understand that we’re of no help to anyone if we can’t be of help to ourselves.
