Water is a gentle element, and Water people are most at home using an
indirect approach to achieve their goals. Although capable of
devastating power (witness floods), Water is at its magnificent best
when it quietly grounds down obstacles as in the process of soil
erosion. That is how Water created the Grand Canyon, one of the great
wonders of the natural world.
Positive Traits: Communicative, convincing, diplomatic,
empathetic, flexible, intuitive, open mined, resilient, sensitive, soft
spoken, spontaneous and sympathetic.
The emotional Water person is very sensitive to other people
and their needs. When you combine this with your normally excellent
communications skills, it’s easy to understand that you can be an
excellent enabler and counselor.
As a non threatening Water person you can easily get close to
other people and often end up influencing them even more than
aggressive people who use the direct approach. As with the stream that
wears away the rough rock leaving a beautifully polished stone, you
usually leave us the better for having known you.
You will probably not try to overwhelm with force but, rather,
will wear down opposition with persistence. You likely prefer to
present your point in a diplomatic manner. You will rarely blurt out a
blunt or straightforward contradiction to what others say. You probably
don’t even like to stand up and fight when attacked. You might yield
and yield; however, you won’t break. You are a survivor and likely to
outlast our onslaughts.
