What is the Soul’s Role in Personality Typing

What is the soul’s role in personality type? As a life guide, I’m combining traditional career typology with spiritual perspectives specific to your type. My tsunami taught me when you let your spirit self guide your logical self you become more centered, balanced, and healthy. It’s all about leaving behind fear-based living led by your false self and stepping into a life of enlightened living, guided by your true self?

I’ve come to understand traditional typology focuses heavily on the logical, external aspects of life. Did you know Myers-Briggs® typology dates back to the 1940s when it was introduced post World War II. It was the rise of the Patriarchal age, where big institutions, governments, and men ruled society.

Here’s what I know. I believe the soul’s role in personality is decidedly fresh, a modern approach that is relevant to the new Age of Aquarius. When your type aligns with your soul’s intentions, you become your true Self, answering your life’s calling. Soul purpose in action. If you’re wondering how this all came about, stay tuned as I’ll share more of my journey and how you can start moving into your true self on next week’s blog. Spoiler alert: it doesn’t begin with spirituality!

Understanding the False Self and Its Role in Soulful Personality Typing

By Being Who We Are, we not Only Experience Life in all its Vitality but, Quite Innocently and Without Design, we Help Others be more Thoroughly Themselves. –Mark Nepo- The Book of Awakening

Understand your spiritual practices will be different because they’re based around the specific needs of your persona. Once you initiate a mindfulness practice and begin to quiet the noisy mind, you’ll enter into a Divinely led relationship between your soul and personality type. This union allows you to recognize the false self, the fear-driven personality. The aspect of your persona that wants to please feels unworthy, compete, blame, meet societal expectations – ignoring the true self.

Here’s what I know fear-based personality typing has likely gotten you stuck, but it’s a soul-inspired personality that brings you the life of your dreams, the purpose you long for and the meaningful next-level career.

Why Soulful Personality Typing

Over 97% of People Want to Consciously Change Their Personalities Psychology Today


A 2019 Gallop Poll states 85% of the workforce is unhappy. Is it because people don’t really know who they are or what they truly desire. Another recent study from Psychology Today stated, ‘over 97% of people want to consciously change their personalities.’ I believe if you align a healthy and balanced persona supported with spiritual practices, you step on the road of your true self, your authentic self. My life experiences proved this theory to be 100% true.


Do You Believe You Are a Spiritual Being Having a Human Experience?

Being Who We Are Releases an Extraordinary Power that, Without Intent or Design, Affects the People Who Come in Contact with Such Realness. – Carl Jung– Depth psychologist, a pioneer in the psychology of personality typing.


Today, I believe so many of us are waking up to the idea that we are spiritual beings, having a human experience. I believe this understanding helps you remember that your spirit, nonphysical self is your higher consciousness. A consciousness that gives you the ability to intuit Divine creative, thoughts and teachings and passes these Divine ideas through to your personality type. My knowings of the true self is that it is bridge between the nonphysical (higher consciousness) and the physical (lower often unconscious energies of the ego).

I want to talk about it, and here’s why.

– We live in a society driven by falsities.  Hiding behind perfectly curated social media posts, airbrushed photos, and relentless marketing campaigns that promote the idea to live happily. You need to find the perfect house, car, clothes, makeup, latest tech gadget…

– I also believe spirituality has taken on a lip-gloss ideology. Many touting we have to be positive all the time, or we’ve fallen from the zen zone. Nope positive feelings only, no negative feelings, anger, fear, or sadness, it’s TABOO. I don’t know about you, but I’m human, and I’m not positive 24/7. I have to process my feelings, the good and the bad. Hell, it took me 7-years to get to the bottom of my false self so that I could get to know my true self. That’s a lot of processing! 🙂

– Today with the world in chaos (believe me, Divine Intelligence has a plan), I feel it’s essential to know your truth. When you’re in truth, you’re grounded in the who of who you really are. This has a tremendously positive impact helping you remain focused, while enabling you to walk through the chaos. I’m not saying you have your head in the clouds. What I’m saying is you won’t feel obligated to own someone else’s chaos.

– Knowing your spiritual personality type helps you to realize unhealthy personality traits.
