Air people think before feeling, and sometimes they think instead of feeling. Air people are rational and often quite clever. Some Air people are quiet, studious, and bookish, but Air is the element of speech, so Air people can also be entertaining, spinning colorful stories and being great wits who delight in wordplay. Their gift with words may lead them to writing or communications as a career, and particularly glib Air people are excellent marketers. Air people are often proud of their ability to think things through, and may even have disdain for those who rely on feeling or intuition.
Air people can be quite abstract, seeing things in broad strokes, seeing “the big picture.” As such, they are excellent theorists, philosophers, economists, and politicians—people who must see life in its systems and structures, rather than in individuals and details. Sometimes they can be radical thinkers, because they don’t necessarily value experience over theory, nor do they worry about how things have always been done. Tradition means little to the free-thinking Air individual.
Continued personality summary, life role analysis, and overall personality type:
Air people also excel at doing several things at once, or keeping several ideas in their heads at once—“keeping many balls in the air.” There is an exception: some Air folks are too easily distracted. Multiple tasks scatter them, like seeds in the wind. Some people with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) are Air people. Such Air people are at their best when using their powers of thought to concentrate intensely on just one task at a time.
The stereotype of the absent-minded professor is pure Air. Air “professors” are brilliant, even dazzling, but utterly impractical. This is the genius with untied shoes who misses appointments. This is the “science geek” whose brilliance doesn’t seem to apply to the real world. The Air person has charm, but often lacks social graces (which are based on following rules which seem to be of little consequence).
Since commitment doesn’t come naturally to Air (picture tying down the wind), and since they aren’t generally in touch with their feelings, Air people can have difficulty in relationships.
They are generally poor housekeepers, having a sort of scattered style, “as if a windstorm hit the place.” If they do keep a tidy home, they do so in a systematized way. They can become very disconnected from people and the normal concerns of day-to-day life, and be poorer for it.
However, Air people can choose to balance their airy nature with relatedness and practicality and enrich their lives.
Elemental Life Role: AIR
People who are living the Air role are often children or teens. They are either formally students or they are, in one way or another, in a learning, rather than doing, process. Although every one of us learns throughout life, people in the Air role are learning things they *aren’t yet doing*—the Air role person has not yet had a lot of direct experience in the area of study. Sometimes an older person will choose to restart life—ditching a career and going back to school, for example—and that person is in the Air role because, even with a lot of life experience, it isn’t being applied at the moment.
Air role people are sometimes messengers, because Air communicates, but also because the “in-between” part of life is a natural time to act and be perceived as a messenger. It’s sometimes the case that people who are “always in the middle” are a little naïve, and subject to manipulation by others. Sometimes it’s not negative at all; the messenger simply has no personal agenda, and is able to act as a go-between without adding any baggage.
An Air role person usually doesn’t have a relationship of any significance. (If someone reverts to an Air role, that person may have built a relationship during a non-Air part of life.)
Synthesis: AIR OF AIR: The Thoughtful Scholar
Air people with an Air place in life are thinkers who are utterly involved with their own thinking. Because they are in their natural milieu, there is a great deal of satisfaction in their lives. They have little in the way of connections or relationships, but they are at a period in their lives when they don’t need them. Perhaps they imagine that they will acquire these things later on, or perhaps they don’t notice or care about having said relationships.
Thoughtful Scholars analyze each piece of life, of knowledge, that they come across as if they were the very first one to ponder its meaning. Their extreme Airiness make them “above it all,” perhaps even a little on the intellectually snobby side. Their noses might always be in a book, or they might be involved with grander plans, formulating theories and systems that books cannot contain.
Lacking in Earth, they are unkempt. Their clothing and eating habits are haphazard at best. Lacking in Water, they are happily alone, but may lack an emotional outlet. Their moods may be sudden and intense in order to compensate for how rarely they are given reign.
Because their Air is untempered, Air of Air people can be glib, or even dishonest. Their only priorities are their thoughts, words, and knowledge, and their sense of morality can easily get lost. On the other hand, their brilliance can be a gift, freely given.
