Are You a Deep Magical Genius or a Practical Manifester?

Each of us has a different personality. We know this when it comes to friendship or dating. But did you know that you also have a magical personality? You might be primarily an Air, a big time communicator and thinker, or a Water, a person who interacts with the world through emotions, the language of Spirit. Take the test to find out more.

Which of the Four Elements Is Your Dominant Element?
Once you take the personality test and know your personality according to which of the four elements you are most dominant in, how does this help you? Good question. Each of the four elements has its own characteristics associated with it. By knowing what these characteristics are, you'll be able to identify what your strengths are, how you view the world and how you interact with the world and others. This knowledge can help you find the career you are best suited for, know the type of people you are most compatible with when looking for friends or a mate, and give you an understanding of the best way for you to approach situations in your life. It also makes you aware of your challenges so you will be prepared to encounter resistance or difficult situations with a plan for dealing with them already in place. Once you know which of the magical four elements is dominant in your personality by taking the magical personality test, you not only get a better understanding of yourself, but also start looking at others and any situation you encounter in relation to the elements and how best for you to interact with them.

Real Life Example
My adult daughter is totally dominant in the Water element so I know that she views the world and will generally react from an emotional stand in any situation. I, on the other hand, am most dominant in Earth. As a water personality, my daughter views the world from characteristics such as emotions, feelings, intuition, compassion, empathy, sympathy, knowing, and devotion. She always makes herself available to help others, she has a helping service career, and feels very passionate about community and making things "right" for others. She is able to appreciate beauty in her life as well as the gifts and blessings she has. The problems come for her when she takes on too much feeling for others and absorbs their negative energies or when her water energies become stagnant or too dark which causes depression. As an Earth personality, I am often able to help her anchor and ground out these negative energies when this occurs. Knowing my personality characteristic which include strength, endurance, patience, structure, serenity of beingness, solidity, boundaries, permanence, loyalty, persistence, stubbornness, security, and anchor, and knowing hers, I have insight into the best ways to help her when she goes on emotional overload and calls me in tears of frustration, sadness or from being overwhelmed. I know that she will be most successful in situations that allow her to express who she is and stay true to her values, so any conversation we have needs to start with just letting her talk. As an Earth personality, I am able to patiently wait and listen until she winds down and gets all her emotions verbally spewed out. This in itself offers an anchor and some stability to her. I can then offer magical solutions to help her regain energy such as Rooting or going to the nearby river and putting her feet in the moving water. Once she has her emotions balanced again, it is simple to guide her through looking inside herself to find her own answers for her current problem. My role in this process is to simply be an anchor and a rock for her. This is what I am able to share with her just by having an understanding of my four element personality and hers.

On the other hand, as an Earth personality I can be rigid and yes even stubborn at times. These are characteristics that I am aware of and have to be on my guard against. I often lack the emotional connection in situations and with people in favor of organization, practicality and I can be inflexible at times. Especially when interacting with other people, I have to be aware of these challenges and guard against closing off and showing no empathy for others being convinced that I am right and there is no room for compromise. This is when my daughter's personality can be very helpful to me. As an empathetic Water personality, she is able to translate to me what others might be feeling about a situation and give me insights from an emotions perspective. This helps me shift my Earth stance a bit to be able to look for compromise and consider the other person's view on the situation. By knowing these personality characteristics that we each have, my daughter and I are able to help each other through our challenges by lending the strengths we each possess from our dominant element.

Fire and Air
Since we pretty much covered the characteristics for Water and Earth in the example with myself and my daughter, let's take a quick look at characteristics associated with Fire and Air.

Fire - energy, power, will, desire, anger, pain, motivation, radiance, passion, initiative, aggression, limitation, endeavor, activity, creative, willingness, urge, inspired, excitable, courage, bravado, compulsion, fanaticism, frustration, resentment, rage, freedom

Air - seeing, breathing, speaking, hearing, planning, thinking, believing, memorizing, communicating, learning, teaching, information, ideas, wisdom, understanding, worry, sensation, awareness, opinions, data, memory, mind

Look through the characteristics listed for each of the four elements and see which sounds the most like you. This will give you a good idea of your dominant element. You can get an even better idea by taking the four elements personality test. Then look at the people around you that you get along the best with and those that you don't get along with. Consider what their dominant element might be. This will help you find the people you will be the most successful with and help you be aware of those that you will have a challenging relationship with and help you find ways to deal with them. Beginning to see the world from a perspective of the four elements can open a lot of doors for you and help you be successful in whatever you do. This is the start of living a magical life and seeing life from a viewpoint of magic.
