You may be familiar with the five-element theory, according to which the elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water symbolize the five basic processes of nature, and represent the five qualities of natural phenomena. Since we’re an integral part of nature, the five-element theory applies to us as well – to our health, personality, potential, and life challenges.
Identifying your five-element type, whether you’re a wood type or a water type, for example, can help you understand your inherent drives, desires and tendencies, your gifts and powers, as well your limitations. It’s not meant to put a label on your personality, but rather to serve as a tool for self-awareness, self-understanding and self-mastery.
There are five archetypal personalities associated with each element: “Pioneer” for Wood, “Wizard” for Fire, “Peacemaker” for Earth, “Alchemist” for Meta, and “Philosopher” for Water.
I’ll briefly describe each archetype. Check it out and see which type resonates with your understanding of who you are. http://www.cycleharmony.com/menstrual-myths-and-rituals/what-s-your-five-element-personality-type?view=article
