2/5 Profile – Hermit Heretic

For someone with the 2/5 profile and any other profile containing a 5, it’s really crucial to understand that they represent a vast projection field. As soon as you come in contact with people, they start to project all kind of stuff onto you.
Mostly you being their „savior,“ carrying the solution for a problem within you that is burdening them – be it work-related, in private, health-wise, sexually, etc. In the beginning, the projection is mostly positive, but lo and behold – if you don’t fulfill this positive expectation, they will knock you off the pedestal they previously put you upon themselves. And you are the most horrible person on earth!  Oh, how well do I know THAT myself, having a 5/1 profile!

Imagine being born as an infant that carries a 5 in their profile. Your parents see you and project onto you that you are the best and dearest baby far and wide. That happens automatically. But we’re all not perfect and don’t just have our good, but also our bad days – and on the first bad day, the baby loses its reputation. Or later in life your reputation as the best partner (dream woman/dream man), the best employee, the best father / the best mother, the best neighbor, the best friend is lost.

Oh, as someone with a 5 in our profile we’re very concerned about our reputation. The dreams and hopes of the world rest upon the profiles with a 5. This leads to people coming to us with high hopes, which causes a slight paranoia within us. „What does he/she want from me?!“ is a sentence we often may think, as we sense the immense expectation of others. Simultaneously the „paranoia“ assists us in being careful with others and feeling, whether we can fulfill their expectations – or not.

Now specifically for the 2/5 profile: Someone with the 2/5 profile, on the one hand, radiates with the 5 in their profile „come and get me!“ and with the 2 in their profile „just leave me alone!“ That’s a big dilemma in the life of these people. They love being in their cave, being at peace and living kind of reclusively. Simultaneously they radiate „Come here. I’ll seduce and save you!“ When these people don’t know their profile and thus don’t understand their effect on other people, they are perplexed in their interaction with others and don’t want to have anything to do with anyone.

Thereby people with the 2/5 profile have the natural talent to help others and to offer practical solutions in times of need. There’s just one crucial thing.

As soon as someone with a 2/5 profile has found their inner calling, they have the talent of offering a practical solution in times of need!

They have to find their inner calling within them, their vocation, WHAT they want to do with their life. And that’s not a mental decision! If they decided it with their head, it would just lead to alienation in the world and total reclusion.

It is crucial for them to discover the INNER calling within them; only then they will be motivated to get moving and to enter a natural interaction with others. This way, they fulfill their purpose of naturally delivering practical solutions for problems other people face in their lives. Those with the 2/5 profile are archetypes who have to AND can motivate themselves. No one else can do it for them. No one else can get them out of their cave. The motivation and the inner calling in their life have to come from within them, and then they’re unstoppable!
