Patterns of Imbalance

  • Needing to control and dominate others
  • Appearing autocratic and tyrannical
  • Expecting unquestioning obedience
  • Being rigid, strict and inflexible
  • Believing we are better than others
  • Becoming lost in callous and ruthless behaviour
  • Losing touch with our conscience

The Vine personality is very strong and charismatic with above average leadership abilities. These souls are highly capable, ambitious and unsurpassed when it comes to will-power and presence of mind. They are confident of success. Being so assured, they think that it would be to the benefit of others if they could be persuaded to do and think as they do, or they are certain is right. In its negative manifestation Vine comes across as being dictatorial, authoritarian, even ruthless. Justifications for such behaviour will be made, it makes more sense, better for business etc., but no thought is given to the human consequences of such actions. The soul displaying Vine tendencies must guard against imposing their own powerful views, no matter how right, on others and avoid losing sight of their feelings and needs. The concept of consensus is totally alien to a negative Vine type. The personality error of Vine is using their gifts to satisfy personal vanity rather than the collective experience. Those in charge of others, such as teachers and managers, are likely to fall into the patterns of imbalance of this type.
