You state that “Cultivating an empathic practice isn't always natural or easy, but the first step is beginning to recognize specific empathic strengths and deficits in yourself.” And to help people do that, you outlined the seven empathic archetypes:
* Sage: Be present -- inhabit the here and now.
* Inquirer: Question -- interrogate assumed truths.
* Convener: Host -- creatively anticipate the needs of others.
* Confidant: Listen -- summon the patience to observe and absorb information.
* Cultivator: Commit -- purposefully nurture and actively develop.
* Seeker: Dare -- be confident and unafraid to take risks or pivot.
* Alchemist: Experiment -- constantly test and try.
And “as a starting point to figuring out which archetype you default to, ask yourself: Which of these archetypes am I more naturally inclined to? Which ones feel less natural?” Which archetype(s) do you find yourself naturally leaning towards? Do you see that certain archetypes are attracted to specific types of roles or businesses? How can we better expand our perspectives to understand other archetypes?
