They are effective at doing this through their nurturing, insightful and encouraging nature. They despise conflict and will do everything they can to make sure their loved ones get along with each other and are happy.

    Advocates are introspective, values-oriented, inspiring, social and extremely expressive. They actively send their thoughts and ideas out into the world as a way to bring attention to what they feel to be important, which often has to do with ethics and current events. They are natural advocates, attracting people to themselves and their cause with excellent people skills, warmth, energy and positivity.

 Confidants make up an estimated 1 percent of all people and are the most rare type (males even more so). They are introspective, caring, sensitive, gentle and complex people that strive for peace and derive satisfaction from helping others. They are highly intuitive, empathetic and dedicated listeners. These traits tend to act as a "tell me what's wrong" sign on their forehead, hence the nicknames Confidant, Counselor or Empath. They are intensely private and deeply committed to their beliefs.
    Famous Confidants are: Luke Skywalker, Oprah Winfrey and Tinman from The Wizard of Oz.

   Dreamers  are introspective, private, creative and highly idealistic individuals that have a constant desire to be on a meaningful path. They are driven by their values and seek peace. Empathetic and compassionate, they want to help others and humanity as a whole. They are imaginative, artistic and often have a talent for language and writing. They can also be described as easygoing, selfless, guarded, adaptable, patient and loyal.
    Famous Dreamers are: Anne from Anne of Green Gables, E.T. from the movie and Princess Diana.

I LOVE Anne of Green Gables! Just love, love, love it!
