Passion: Nurturing life; creating something out of nothing or bringing value out of something that had no value; being efficient; finding and giving value; influencing.
Primary fears: Being inadequate as a nurturer/caregiver/provider; losing the respect of others; losing a child (whether to death or to walking away from the relationship and whether an actual child or one in the care of the giver).
Spiritual connection/voice of God: Tend to be very visual in their relationship with God; frequently see in pictures and music often is very important in their ability to connect with God; dreams and visions are not unusual; tend to be more sure of their hearing/seeing much as the prophet is sure; there is a very black and white sense of being connected or disconnected with God; not much gray area in terms of what is right or of God.
Relationship characteristics: “Family”—whether actual family or whether those adopted to come under the care of the giver are very significant to the giver; to the giver a person is either in the “family” and is a priority or is out of the family and mostly important according to the practical value of the relationship; they like the parent role and are more comfortable where relationships are vertical; where appropriate, they can play the child role.
Conflict: Conflict is seen in light of the need for nurturing; where necessary for the “parent” to raise up the child, it is of little consequence; in situations where it might bring a loss of face or would be debilitating to role as nurturer, it becomes significant.
Task orientation: As entrepreneurs, they tend to be excellent at managing task; they like to involve others in task for their growth and for the sake of making a profit; they seldom work alone on a task unless it is during the visioning phase; task holds a relatively high value but not above primary relationships unless things are out of order.
Possessions: Things can be a status symbol for the giver, both as a sign of having accomplished something and for the value they assign to the things themselves; they are a means to an end but an important means.
