The Earth person’s approach to life’s challenges is not unlike that of the tortoise in the fabled race with the hare. Methodically and inexorably you march towards your goals. Furthermore, you exhibit a great deal of common sense and practicality along the way.
Positive Traits: Industrious, logical, practical, realistic, reliable, responsible, stable, unassuming, and unpretentious.
The Earth element person is above all else practical. You realistically approach daily life thinking about what needs to be done and the best way to do it. You’re somewhat of a utilitarian, always looking at what use you can make of things. Although not generally philosophical by nature, you are usually logical in your approach to getting things done, and it shows up in the methodical way you do them.
And, you do get things done. You tend to be industrious and hard working, the nose to the grindstone type. More often than not you are very responsible and known at work for your reliability. You are the one likely to be tasked with the most critical projects, especially those of an engineering nature or heavy with staff work.
Recognition may not always come your way thanks to your modest, unassuming nature. Those qualities together with the stability you provide, however, make you a valued member of any group. You can be as effective at promoting harmony as the diplomatic Wood element person in your own, quiet way.
Negative Traits: Boring, humorless, insensitive, plain, plodding, risk-averse, stingy and unimaginative.
