First off, I love the debate and the various views already shared about Barack Obama’s type. Check out the two previous posts to see for yourself.
Now let’s move on to Sarah Palin. Many people have asked me about her. Particularly, what happens if she becomes Vice President, McCain can’t fulfill his obligations as President, and she ends up running the country? How is she likely to respond if she gets tweaked by the leader of a foreign country?
In the beginning, as I watched her acceptance speech and early interviews, my thought was she’s a Type Three. She impressed everyone in the first few days… she was the hot soccer mom with the coy wink that everyone could connect with, or at least wanted to connect with, and it looked like McCain had pulled a rabbit out of his hat.
As I continue to watch Sarah Palin and get under her surface, things are not so pretty. The image starts to fall apart. But it’s not that. It is the particular WAY that it fell apart which leads me to Type Six.
I’ve been debating this for the past few weeks with David Daniels, and I think I’ve got him convinced.
When I feel into Palin, I find the jittery anxiousness I associate with a Type Six. Unlike a Three, her delivery is not smooth under pressure. There is a confusing, circular logic when she speaks. Thoughts come quickly, often tumbling out one on top of the other.
For an example, check out this video of her interview with Katie Couric. By the way, you’ll see the Saturday Night Live version first. The real interview follows.
There is a wild streak in Palin. She is a “maverick” from way back. Breaking the rules and pushing the edge comes naturally to her. Helicopter gunner… moose obliterator… this is counter phobic Six behavior all the way!
Whatever you believe let your voice be heard.
We are on the edge, the tipping point. Our world will change tomorrow. Be part of that change.
Know that the consciousness you act with tomorrow will have an impact on how this nation changes over the next four years. When you cast your vote, please do it as an act FOR something, rather than an act that comes out of fear.
Be deliberate as you bring your consciousness, your thoughts, your intentions and focus on what you are creating with your vote, as opposed to rebelling against the alternative. When you give too much attention to what you resist, it just gets bigger. Take a stand for the future you want to live in.
It’s your power. Use it.
