Career Type: Evaluator

Evaluators are rare gems with the ability to see the world very differently than others and can often 'feel' this difference but don't know what is causing their struggles. Dealing with the energy of the corporate world without understanding how their energy is different can be very draining and confusing for them.

They operate by a completely different set of rules than the other types and it's important that they are able to see their unique design so that they can stop 'trying to fit in' and be like everyone else - because they are especially unique.

When they are in the correct environment for them, Evaluators best express their gifts when they are at the heart of the group or business. They operate best when they remain neutral and unattached as the 'sampling observer'. When they have the ability to move around and observe, they have the ability to develop great wisdom reflecting the truth to those around them. They can sense what is healthy or unhealthy and what is going well or not. When they are in an unhealthy environment, this can be especially detrimental for them.

"If you want to make things easier for the Evaluator - learn to be yourself. Learn to operate from your design in a healthy way, deal with your conditioning so that the Evaluator doesn't have to reflect that back to you." ~ Emma Richards, Evaluator

Keys to Being an Evaluator

Wait, Reflect & Discuss

The Evaluator type is very connected to the cycles of the moon and needs to wait (like all the other types) but wait a little longer than most. Experiencing their environment or situation through the full cycle of the moon gives them time to reflect on what they've sampled from the environment experiencing it through each of the traits. Each Evaluator has a unique combination of traits, strengths and functions that 'come online' for them throughout the month giving them a rare view of their environment.


Surprise | Disappointment

When the Evaluator is not in the correct environment, this can really affect their energy. They need to feel comfortable and if it isn't correct for them, it can be really unsettling as they amplify the energy around them. They are especially affected by people being dishonest or accommodating everyone else's needs first, or other's claiming their wisdom as their own. These kinds of things lead to 'disappointment' about life in general.

When they are in the right environment, they feel connected to everything and when people consider their wisdom by asking them what they see or recognize about a situation, they feel especially at home. They may find that nature provides the place where they feel the most connected and can go to recharge their energy. It is when they are experiencing this sense of connection that they experience the 'surprise and delight' of being alive.

"As long as the world doesn't work for everybody, it doesn't work for anybody. Evaluators need to be in an environment where the energy is high enough for them to be seen so we can raise it even further." ~ Emma Richards, Evaluator

Evaluators in the Workplace

This can be challenging for them if they are unaware of their unique type. They can be overwhelmed with all the energy around them and feel like something is wrong with them that they can't keep up. Or - the opposite may also be true - they may be able to take on more than others and risk burning themselves out as they try to stay on top of everything.

Energy flows through them as they can see the patterns coming before others and have to wait for others to catch up. They are here to reflect the health of the business or organization and not here to 'put anything into action' - that is for the Builder energy.

"Our mere presence, not that we're high and mighty or gurus or anyone to be followed, the gift of our presence is that we do elevate the frequency. We allow all the genius of the group to reach their 'ah ha' moments even if we say nothing." ~ Connor Sauer, Evaluator

Best Use of the Evaluator's Uniqueness

Evaluators are great in positions of review and reflection and where they can observe, reflect and share the wisdom of what they see. They need time to consider what they are observing and need about a month before making decisions. They really need to consider everything they observe and can download broad information from beyond them. In order to receive the wisdom they have to share, people need to be 'ready' to hear it and ask for it.
