The Seven Roles (Soul Types)
Your Unique Soul Type - Spiritual Archetypes That Embody Us All
Before each of us begins our incarnational cycle on the planet, we choose one of seven roles (or soul types) which serve as the blueprint for who we are, what special abilities we possess, and how we interact with others.
Our role is the type of soul we are, our special soul type, the spiritual archetype we embody. Every soul has a particular role that determines his dominant way of being. Although a soul can have only one role, there are secondary role influences from his essence twin and casting (mathematical position within the greater whole). We could say that our role is our primary style—it determines not so much what we do but how we tend to do whatever we choose to do. Anyone can do any activity, regardless of role, although each role tends to gravitate toward certain activities. For example, since sages are the cardinal expression role, they often like to disseminate information. However, a person should not assume that he is a sage just because he likes to do that—people of other roles may also have that characteristic. A role is not an exclusive, rigid set of behaviors.
