Cancer CType Professionals – Coaches, Therapists and Counselors Creating Closer Relationships With Clients

Powerful Relationship Building Practices for Cancer CType (star sign/Sun sign Western Zodiac) Coaches, Therapists and Counselors (professionals)

Xl Cancer3 300x300 Cancer CType Professionals – Coaches, Therapists and Counselors Creating Closer Relationships With ClientsThere is a natural tendency for every CType (star sign/Sun sign Western Zodiac) to project his/her way of thinking on to others. Projection of one’s CType on to others is based upon the faulty assumption that everyone else thinks like I do. This puts CTypes at the heart of much of the miscommunication, frustration, and friction in stressed or problematic relationships. For a coach, therapist or counselor (professional) working with clients, CType projection carries with it two major pitfalls: 1. The coach, therapist or counselor will not realize that the client’s problems may be directly related to the client doing too much of his/her own CType and 2. The coach, therapist or counselor may offer support based upon his/her own CType instead of upon the client’s CType. Regardless of how skilled the professional may be, unless CType is entered into the equation, support cannot be optimized.

CTypes in Action With Coaches, Therapists, and Counselors

For instance, Dr. Phil McGraw is a Virgo CType. Watching Dr. Phil work with people, we see that his style and advice for clients tends to be Virgo and Pisces (Virgo’s opposite) CType oriented. While his may be good advice, it is probably not the best advice for most people. Imagine if Dr. Phil were to relate with his clients knowing each client’s CType and how that CType thinks and functions in the world. Moving one step further, Imagine if Dr. Phil knew that the best advice he could give his clients was to help them move to their opposite CTypes. This likely would elevate even more Dr. Phil’s already high level of effectiveness.  That is the power of CTypes for professionals. Of course, a professional knowing his/her own CType and using care not to project that CType on to the clients is also hugely beneficial—for both client and professional.

Cancer CType Thinking

Bi-directional Discrimination means that the Character looks out and focuses on something in the world. Then, he looks in at the Feminine Mind (her) to see if what he sees in the outside world is important. In the beginning, the Feminine Mind tends to reject the outside object as not important. However, if Cancer Masculine Mind stays in one place long enough and sees the same person or object over and over, he will begin to identify with that person or object and give it value.

As the repetitions continue, Cancer begins to bond with the person or object and to nurture it. Since there are many people or objects in his view, Cancer begins to nurture his whole environment. He makes everything family. He becomes attached to the people and things in his environment, mothering them and working very hard at keeping things the same. In this way, he is very resistant to change in his environment.

While people in his environment may enjoy being nurtured and protected for a while, it is not uncommon for Cancer’s nurturing or protective behavior to begin to feel like controlling behavior to the ones he is nurturing. Because Cancer doesn’t see his desire to nurture as a need to control, he feels rejected when people pull away from his control. He sees his efforts as attempts to help, guide, or protect. He knows what is best for people. Because Cancer identifies with the people in his environment, he will tend to blame those people if he is feeling down. When rejected, Cancer says, “After all I’ve done for you, this is how I’m treated!”

Optimizing the Relationships Between Professionals and Their Clients

To optimize the quality of his/her work, a Cancer CType coach, therapist, or counselor will want to consider these CType possibilities:

1.     Avoid projecting your own CType on to your clients.

2.     With awareness, listen to your client with an ear for the expression of his/her CType.

3.     Consider that your client’s problems in life are being created by him/her doing too much of his/her natural CType thinking.

4.     Consider that your client can solve his/her problems and grow personally, professionally and spiritually by moving toward his/her opposite CType (moving toward our opposites is difficult for all CTypes).

5.     Consider that, as a professional coach, therapist or counselor, you will do your best work and grow personally, professionally and spiritually by moving toward your opposite CType, Capricorn (star sign/Sun sign Western Zodiac).
