Type One: The Judge

Personality Identification

What do I want most?

  • I want to be morally right, to improve myself so that no one will be able to say that I am not good.

What is most important to me?

  • It is important to me that people behave as they should.

What is the worst thing that could happen to me?

  • The worst thing that could happen to me is that I become morally corrupt, a failure in my own eyes.

How do I see myself (on a good day)?

  • I am a person with high principles -- logical and orderly.

Path of Peace: One (Judge) looks to Seven (Materialist)

When a One lowers its intensity, it acquires the joyful energy of a healthy Seven, the caring of a healthy Two, the empathy of a healthy Four, and the easygoing nature of a healthy Nine.

I am productive.
[7. Materialist]
I am patient.
[9. Peacemaker]
I am good enough.
[1. Judge]
I am loving.
[2. Caretaker]
I am understanding.
[4. Symbol Maker]

Path of Storms: One (Judge) looks to Four (Symbol Maker)

When a One becomes compulsive, it becomes jealous like the unhealthy Four, becomes the punishing "helper" like the unhealthy Two, indolent like an unhealthy Nine, and anxious like an unhealthy Seven.

I am anxious.
[7. Materialist]
I am lazy.
[9. Peacemaker]
I am righteous.
[1. Judge]
I am punishing.
[2. Caretaker]
I am resentful.
[4. Symbol Maker]

A Counseling Approach

  • Yes, it is amazing how much energy you have when you are no longer tired by the anxiety of having to do everything perfectly.
  • Yes, when you let others be who they are, you become a very loving person.
  • Yes, accepting your own weaknesses makes you more understanding of others and able to accept the way they are.
  • Yes, accepting yourself and the world as it is gives you the patience to do the things you need to do and to achieve what you can achieve.
  • Yes, accepting yourself as being good enough brings you closer to others since being good enough for yourself is what counts.
