The behavior of people vary differently, some appear to be rude and are always upset, while some are filled with joy and seem friendly. The two major reasons for this variation are how one was raised and how one was treated by society or in school. The demons from the past keep haunting. This often becomes the reason for relationships to weaken or for the worse, break. However, knowing about your element gives you a quick overview of how your ride ahead is going to be.
Chinese physicians believed that the universe is composed of five elements water, earth, fire, wood, and metal. They also proposed that people are led by any one or two elements and these influence our behavior, health and emotions as well.
This test is based on five founding elements of the universe. Using this 5000-year-old Asian concept we can bring some clarity and understanding to our relationships once we know which element is prominent in us.
Brief overview of the types:
Generally, water types are persistent, quiet, creative and prone to feeling sorry for themselves. Fire types are fun, joyful, ever smiling and they are bad with commitments, sort of unstable for that matter. Earth types are humble, caring, compassionate and full of life. They tend to over think and over worry at times. Wood types are fierce, bold, aggressive, determined and they are keepers. Metal types are calm, intelligent, and down to earth, sort of practical, reverent and they have the tendency to detach from the people.
Below we have an overview of each type followed by the best matches for them.
Water types are the persistent people. They adapt to any environment and are quick to fit in any circle. They dive deep in life and try not to miss a detail. These are the people you will find dancing with the drops of rain as it touches their foreheads and makes it way tickling their cheeks all the way into their soul. You will find them soaking up the smell of earth given off by the first drops of rain. ‘Hurry’ is not their cup of tea, they believe in persistence rather than worry, the never make hasty decisions and you will find them taking their time to speak walk, or conclude anything.
Waters are full with innovative and inspiring ideas but putting the ideas to action is not their type of thing. They at times get overwhelmed by details and seek for someone to take care of little things for them.
Woods are people with roots deep down the ground. They are fearless, determined, independent, bold, unapologetic and logical. They take no bullshit, they cannot injustice, if it’s not fair they have a problem and that means you’re in a problem. This makes them incredibly powerful. They are supportive and if they are into you, they can take a bullet for you.
Their determination is so strong that if their mind can perceive it and their heart can believe it then they can do it. They are not someone that can be manipulated. Once they make up their mind nothing can convince them otherwise. This trait makes them stronger but when it comes to personal relationship, this same trait causes some problems.
Water goes in with wood
Water and wood together can do wonders. Water can up with ideas and wood can put it to action, win win for both of them. Water gives the float needed to wood and in return, the wood fulfills the productivity needed by the water.
