  •  Nice diary. (0+ / 0-)

    I remember reading that the Democrats always choose the Warrior over the Priest (I think the archetype is fairly similar to Advocate), for fear of seeming wimpy, so they would choose HRC -- a Warrior -- over BHO.  IMO Obama is primarily an Advocate (he's a lawyer!) but he's spoken some Warrior lines ("we won't throw the first punch, but we will throw the last").  

    I used to be disgusted, now I try to be amused

      are 3 different Fire archetypes. On an elemental chart the Warrior is energetically outward, the Priest is inward and the Advocate is a balance.

      There are, of course, creative and destructive aspects of each.

      Obama, with his ability to bring in a sense of faith, while showing strength and willingness to stand up to those who threaten, and at the same time be willing to explain his thinking and offer to represent the will of all of us, perfectly embodies the Advocate.
