  • They can use these insights to influence the people around them
  • They are sensitive to other people’s feelings
  • It can almost seem as if their hearts and minds resonate with other people’s emotions

Striving for Change

  • Diplomats have a deep belief in the ideals of humanism – altruism, compassion, and understanding
  • They are hyper-sensitive to wrongdoing
  • Diplomats are motivated by principles rather than practicality
  • They may have trouble enacting plans that are pragmatic rather than passion-driven
  • They often learn to balance these necessary tasks with the big-picture thinking they enjoy

A Higher Purpose

  • They are passionately inspired by many creative pursuits
  • They care about serving the greater good
  • Activism, spirituality, healing, and volunteering are common interests

The Need to Belong

  • A central challenge of their lives is to balance their need for authenticity with their need to belong
  • For Diplomats, an important part of self-development is learning to be real – even if they fear that doing so won’t make them popular

Time to Leap

  • They can fall into the trap of thinking they’ve leapt when they’re actually still perched at the ledge
  • They have such active mental lives and imaginations
  • Diplomats tend to have a deep intuitive sense of what is right for them
  • They find that by tuning into this wisdom – and honoring it – they can find satisfaction and meaning in their everyday lives, no matter what challenges arise along the way

To Success

  • Diplomats don’t have their own type of ambition
  • They want to make a lasting difference in the world – which is no small feat
  • They may feel as if they’re constantly striving toward ideals and expectations that they’ll never meet
