Sage

Sage individuals are most fulfilled by finding the answers to great questions. Naturally intelligent, knowledgeable, and reflective, they demonstrate the value of thinking things through and motivate others to seek the truth. They’re usually excited and challenged by situations and problems that need to be better understood.

Sage organizations often are very successful at developing significant expertise; gathering and analyzing information so that it’s useful to others; and contributing knowledge to almost any situation.

Sage types need to be wary of ivory tower thinking, dogmatism, and coming across as lacking feeling/empathy.

Subtypes include:

  • Expert/guru: Develops own knowledge and expertise to the highest level
  • Philosopher/contemplative: Uses deep thinking to seek and create clarity
  • Mentor/teacher: Shares wisdom with the world
  • Investigator: Researches and gathers information
  • Analyst: Thinks things through and synthesizes learning
