4/1 Profile – Opportunist Investigator

With the 4/1 profile, we have the first and only profile with a unique position. It has one foot in the personal purpose and one in the transpersonal purpose.

It’s a juxtaposition-profile and is a unique bridge between people with a personal and transpersonal purpose.

Their task in life lies in influencing other people AND to be simultaneously completely uninfluenceable themselves. People with the 4/1 profile have a deep urge to study, to inform themselves, and to do research. This way they get a solid foundation in their life and then they can externalize in their environment what they’ve learned throughout their life – be it as therapists, lawyers, scientists, wellness consultants, etc. to influence other people profoundly. They are excellent teachers and are very sociable and friendly.

People with the 4/1 profile are very fixed in their being and not very flexible. They are like an oak. They are very solid and fixed fellows. It’s impossible to change them or to bend them or to pull them into a different direction in their life. When someone is not open to their influence or even tries to convince them of being wrong with what they have researched and now want to convey, they disappear. They stay friendly but leave those who are not open to their influence. When someone doesn’t like their „trip,“ they won’t ever enter or be able to maintain a relationship with them, be it a friendship, a business or intimate relationship, as they will just leave.

And because they are so fixed and won’t question their foundation they have built over many years but just want to externalize it, it’s crucial for people with the 4/1 profile to follow their genetic strategy and authority in life and to find the foundation that’s right for them to externalize it.

Let’s say someone with the 4/1 profile has come – based on their research – to the conviction that the earth is flat. They will convey for all of their life to those, who are open to their study, and nothing will ever dissuade them from questioning this foundation ( = the earth is flat). Nothing. Even when someone shows them photos that prove the opposite. Even when someone takes them by their hand and travels around the globe, and they see themselves that the earth IS NOT flat. Yes, also when they orbit the whole earth with a space capsule and see that their foundation is false, they won’t accept it – they are so stubborn and fixed! They might get a heart attack the moment they see that the earth is a globe, but they won’t change their foundation and their conviction. Same as an oak won’t bend or cant be moved, but you can burn it down or saw it off.

Thus it’s crucial for a 4/1 profile not to make mental decisions what they want to research in their life, but to be guided by their integrated strategy and authority. This way, they can become great teachers who can profoundly influence us with their friendly being.
