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

2 Libra4 300x300 Libra 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.

Libra CType Thinking

Libra is Inwardly Directed Sensation. Libra Masculine Mind (he) thus looks in at the Feminine Mind (her) and asks, “What have you got for me?” Libra operates primarily out of memories and their associated feelings, which slowly emerge from the Feminine Mind and waft through to the Masculine. Libra is the “on-the-other-hand” CType and works typically by thinking, “Well, I feel this way, and this is what I think. [Another feeling comes.] But, on the other hand, now I feel this way and this is what I think,” and so on.

From the outside, Libra appears very balanced, weighing all the options. He considers this, and then he considers that. But the inside view suggests he can’t make up his mind. For all his apparent indecisiveness, Libra is normally very structured, and he is a traditionalist. Libra is very strongly attached to his upbringing and has difficulty pulling away from relationships with parents, religion, and family.

To optimize the quality of his/her work, a Libra 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, Aries (star sign/Sun sign Western Zodiac).
