Sage Rosen seeks to make their inner wealth outwardly manifest and substantial.
Because Sage Rosen is a social being oriented toward other people, his personal interests often mingle with those of his associates or those of the group to which he belongs. Sage Rosen is motivated by a need to work in common with other people and to share life’s pleasures and pain. His commitments to other people are of paramount importance to his personal development. This dependence may present difficulties with individual self-assertion and make it hard for him to make decisions alone. If Sage Rosen wants to achieve inner equilibrium, he must behave in such a way that his actions yield benefits to others as well as himself.
Sage Rosen is attracted to interpersonal activities, but their significant need for inner security may stand in the way of their overtures to others. Since Sage Rosen is highly receptive to other people’s inner natures, they seek tight bonds with others. They unconsciously need their psychological support in their quest for themselves. If they were to evaluate their psychological development, they would place more value upon human warmth, intimacy, and the need to share than on intellectual understanding or personal freedom of expression.
Sage Rosen has a tendency to identify with others. Sage Rosen forms friendships easily and naturally and enjoys participating in other people’s lives. Sociable, Sage Rosen enjoys being seen and appreciates popularity and recognition. Solitude bores Sage Rosen. Sage Rosen’s life and personal relations are in sync with Sage Rosen’s friendships and outer events. Most often, Sage Rosen shares the opinion of others.
Sage Rosen works harder than others to understand other people’s feelings. But this seeming lack of empathy and compassion for others simply mirrors Rosen’s own difficulty in understanding their own feelings and emotional needs. Rosen is not insensitive, but is baffled by their own emotions. They see the emotional world as a foreign terrain, perhaps fraught with hidden dangers. Becoming familiar with it would present more drawbacks than advantages. As a result, Rosen may appear to be hard or aloof.
Rosen might struggle to establish a rewarding relationship, as they seek special individuals to bond with. If Rosen were able to accept and understand their own emotions, they would have an easier time grappling with other people’s feelings.
Rosen has a strong desire for emotional independence, and might have trouble seeing other people’s emotional needs. They might even be the first to deny that such needs are real.
As a result, Rosen’s dependency on others is unconscious. Because it is seen as such a threat, it is repressed. Actually, although Rosen offers conscious resistance to anyone who tries to lure them out of their emotional bubble, they are always making timid, half-conscious forays into the world of feelings, because their loneliness and fear are so unbearable.
