> Individual Chart
BY PHILLIP WITTMEYER
In the following pages, I present my
interpretations of the Michael charts of a number of people whom I know rather
well in most cases a period of many years. This will perhaps be more
interesting to many readers than abstract theories and general principles.
Besides, a theory is of little value if it cannot be applied in actual
situations with living human beings. I personally feel that the insights that I
have gained about the nature of these people who are close to me has been
valuable in knowing how to relate to them. And, in those cases where I have
explained this System to them, it has been beneficial to them also.
On the Charts on the following pages, the shaded squares and circles are the
Characteristics in the Arrays of the people. (The squares are males and the
circles are females.) The half-shaded squares and circles are their secondary
Features and Centers. The numbers in the squares and circles represent the
ranking of their centers, from third strongest to seven for the weakest.
INDIVIDUAL CHART ANALYSIS # 1
This is someone that I know well because I worked near him daily for several
years. He is an engineering draftsman in his early forties at the time of this
As a third Level Young soul, he is almost exactly half way through the cycles of
Maturation. He is at the height of involvement in his physical life, so to
speak. Consequently, he is very much concerned about worldly pursuits. The fact
that he is a Warrior also emphasizes the worldly-exploit nature of this life. He
prides himself (notice the Arrogance Feature) on how well informed he is about
the news what is happening in the world. He also takes pride in all his many
accomplishments, for he is constantly getting things done around the house and
with his automobiles. As is also characteristic of Warriors, he is "tough
as nails" he can endure hardships well. As with many Warriors, he likes
motorcycles and hot cars the modern-day chariots.
His Goal of Acceptance means he is a nice person he can be quite charming.
On the other hand, this Young Warrior can be harsh at times. His Passion Mode
makes him very intent on being his own person and exhibiting his actions freely
he tells all there is to tell about himself, especially since his primary
Feature is Greed. He wants what he wants very strongly, he goes after it, and he
keeps at it till he gets it. The Passion Mode also leads him to exaggerate
everything everything is a big deal to him. He is usually unwilling to
compromise or give in to others because his Arrogance leads him to believe he is
superior, if not nearly perfect, and practically always right.
The Skeptic Attitude contributes to his engineering aptitude, because it prompts
him to investigate whatever situation is before him. He asks a lot of questions
about the world. And, like most Skeptics, he is very doubtful about life after
death. His Intellectual Center is very weak, but he does have a high IQ In his
false humility, he keeps the exact figure to himself, but lets it be known that
he is smart and that others are stupid (Arrogance again). He doesn't enjoy
thinking out the details, which a person who is strong in the Intellectual
Center normally would.
His strongest Center is the Sexual Center. This shows up in the fact that he
wants sex about twice a day if he can get it (he has been extremely promiscuous
in the past). His second strongest Center is the Instinctive Center. This is
exhibited in his idiosyncratic behavior. He perhaps has more idiosyncrasies than
anyone I know. Also he claims to have super senses and extreme sensitivity to
the environment a remark which combines Instinctive Center, Passion Mode,
and Arrogance Feature. Overall, this is a very interesting personality. Life is
not boring with him around, but most people find him a bit irritating.
INDIVIDUAL CHART ANALYSIS # 2
This is a girl I have known for over ten years, and worked with her for five of
those. She is in her early thirties at the time of this writing, has been
married and divorced, and has no children.
This first Level Mature soul is at the beginning of a new cycle. At this Level,
a person does not usually pursue answers to the big questions, but is content to
just experience life as it comes, and this is the case with her. This is a
generally undistinguished lifetime.
This Slave soul with a Goal of Reduction would rather pass her time in seclusion
as a housewife, but at present she is employed as a secretary, in a job she
feels is meaningless drudgery notice she is in the Negative Pole of the
Slave Role: Bondage. The Caution Mode means that she has a slow and careful
manner that makes her thoughtful and accurate in her work, a trait that her
employer values. It also makes her very security-conscious. She does not take
chances or risks.
The Reduction Goal means that she is rather hard to get to know, that she tends
to keep to herself, that she wants to avoid the complex hassles of life, and
that she would like to stay at home. She tends to build a shell around herself
when she feels she cannot cope with the world (which is quite often) because she
is Polarized in the Negative Pole of Withdrawal.
The Skeptic Attitude also means she tends not to be friendly to just anyone, and
she is inclined to question your motives because she is often in the Negative
Pole of Suspicion, but if you are very patient, and carefully take the time to
cultivate her acquaintance, she will show herself to be a warm and sensitive
person, as evidenced by her strong Emotional and Impressional Centers.
Her weak Moving Center means she prefers to sit and do passive tasks like
reading and watching TV than to do active tasks like working around the house.
Her weak Sexual Center as compared to her strong Emotional Center means that her
interest in male companionship is motivated more by a desire for physical
closeness and affection than by lust. She has a significant interest in
psychology, which is a product of her strong Impressional Center, since this
Center allows her to tune into the "spirit" (psychological climate) of
whatever situation she finds herself in.
Her Features of Impatience and Stubbornness have been known to get her into some
difficulty. Her abundance of Traits in the Analysis and Involution Processes
tends to make her a materialistic person, so she finds comfort in physical
possessions. Her Impatience for ownership has caused her to make purchases which
have kept her in constant financial straits, and her Stubbornness has prevented
her from taking the advice of others in these matters at times. She is not
irresponsible in this however, because she is a Mature soul, and psychologically
mature enough to realize that you must pay for what you want.
INDIVIDUAL CHART ANALYSIS # 3
This is a man who worked at the same place I did for a number of years. He is an
engineer nearing retirement age at the time of this writing.
He is one of the most primitive individuals I have ever charted, being an Infant
soul at the third Level. He is regarded by all who know him as an immature
person, lacking in grace and common social sensibility. You can tell just by
looking in his eyes that there is not much "in there" that there
is an obvious lack of depth to the personality. Yet in spite of the newness of
his psyche, he has done remarkably well for himself, since he is a professional
engineer and a partner in an engineering firm, with employees working under his
supervision. His engineering aptitude is an expression of his strongest Center,
the Intellectual, and his Pragmatist Attitude. This is an excellent combination
for an engineer. The Artisan Role is more suited to engineering than the Warrior
Role, which this person is, but many other Warriors are to be found in
engineering also. His approach is simply to get the work done, rather than to do
it artfully or skillfully, as an Artisan would.
Probably the reason this person has gotten as far as he has in life is because
of his Dominance Goal and Power Mode. This gives him a drive and confidence
which might otherwise be lacking in such an immature personality. It also makes
him rather difficult to work with, since he lacks the social finesse that come
with maturity in Age. He is overbearing and pushy at times. His primary Feature
of Impatience only makes this worse, since he often acts rashly and impetuously
in his efforts to keep his employees busy. He has difficulty keeping employees
from quitting. (I would also recommend that you not ride in an automobile that
he was driving, since this Impatience and his lack of general savvy make him
nervous, jumpy and incompetent behind the wheel. It would be amusing if you
could just watch from a safe place. His overall incompetence is a source of
amusement, frustration and disgust to those around him, although he is oblivious
to this.) Even though he can be obnoxiously domineering, he almost always backs
down if another person challenges his authority. Because he is such a primitive
person, he does not know how to deal with differentness in others. Present him
with a new situation and he tends to run away until he can figure out how to
This man is not unintelligent, uneducated, or culturally deprived. Nevertheless,
his primitivity is obvious to all. Most people, although they do not understand
the reason (psychological immaturity) for his overwhelming lack of appropriate
behavior, nevertheless make allowances for it, and he himself manages to muddle
through life without doing any great damage. In fact, he seems to be doing
remarkably well considering the handicap he has to work against.
INDIVIDUAL CHART ANALYSIS # 4
This is a former employer of mine that I worked with for several years. He is
nearing retirement age at the time of this writing.
This Young Artisan is an engineer by education and profession. His Artisan Role
and strong Intellectual Center are ideal for this occupation, so he is well
suited to what he does for a living, and he is fairly successful at it. Since
his Intellectual Center is his strongest Center, he tends to analyze all the
alternatives and consider all the ramifications of every possibility. However,
in combination with his weak Imagination Center, it means he does not know how
to see the big picture and take shortcuts to get a job done quickly or
efficiently he gets bogged down in the details.
It is not surprising that he would be a boss in his own engineering firm,
considering his Dominance Goal and Power Mode. I have seen this combination
quite often with employers. He is not the type to work for someone else,
especially with a Feature of Arrogance. No one else is going to tell him what to
do, and he is too good to let any one else be over him. He worked for a couple
of other firms for a while after college, then started his own business. He
maintains tight control over his employees everything has to be done just
his way and there is no toleration of individual initiative. This approach
is only made worse by the fact that he is a Young soul ("do it my
way") and at the first Level he not very aware of self and other and
questioning the meaning of it all: he simply acts.
And speaking of "simply acts", his strong Instinctive Center means
that he is rather impulsive, arbitrary, and whimsical about what he wants and
doesn't want there is no consistency. His mood swings are impossible to
figure out, and, until I saw his Chart, I never knew if it was something I did
to get him upset, or just his state of mind. Now I realize it was just his
unpredictable Instinctive Center.
One very likable Trait about him is the Idealist Attitude. This Characteristic
helps to soften the overbearing nature inherent in him with these Delineation
Aspects. He is basically friendly, and likes to talk philosophy (the
Intellectual Center is generally very communicative). He likes to tell you about
the wisdom he has learned in his life, and share his idealistic view of the
world, but because of his relatively primitive Age, it usually comes out rather
platitudinous and sophomoric.
Now in his declining years, he seems to be going through his "second
childhood" he acts rather childish and juvenile at times. (He also
wants to buy and restore antique automobiles an Artisan thing to do). My
guess is that this is a characteristic most prevalent among Young souls in old
age. Since this Age is attached to youthfulness, Young souls may be the least
likely to be able to cope gracefully with aging.
INDIVIDUAL CHART ANALYSIS # 5
This is a middle-aged woman that I met at a metaphysics meeting, and have dealt
with socially on numerous occasions. She is divorced and remarried and has three
This fifth Level Mature soul has been looking for answers to the big questions
in life for as long as she can remember. Mature souls typically are constantly
searching for answers, and in the later Levels this search is intensified and
very often expands to include metaphysics. The Impressional Center, her
strongest, often expresses as a very spiritual or religious nature. This is
definitely one reason why she has an interest in metaphysics. She also manifests
this Center in her desire to heal other people of their psychological ailments
she has worked as a volunteer counselor on the crisis hot-line. A strong
Impressional Center, in conjunction with the Instinctive Center (her next
strongest) often confers "psychic" ability on the person, since the
person often receives impressions and convictions seemingly out of the clear
blue sky. It was in fact at a meeting of psychics that I met her. The inherent
sensitivity of these two Centers and her Idealism have their negative side also.
She is rather touchy about a lot of things. Probably her Impatience Feature,
when in the Negative Pole of Intolerance, had something to do with that also.
You have to be careful to be reverent around her. Because of her Growth Goal,
she could handle a lot of work piled on her at her job.
Her Idealist Attitude is expressed in her love of and study of philosophy for
many years, formally and informally. She also shows her Idealism in that she
generally notices how things "ought to be" in order to be ideal.
Idealists have a tendency to see the world through rose-colored glasses. There
is a naοvetι and an innocence to this Attitude. It is difficult for her to
accept it when things are not as they should be. It amazes her when she does
notice that evil really exists in the world.
She expresses her Caution Mode in the usual way, with a slow, careful,
methodical manner. This also shows up in the way she drives an automobile
hesitant and lacking in grace. Typical of this Mode also is a strong concern for
security, and the need to assure this sense of safety in the environment. Her
secondary Feature of Lowliness reinforces this lack of boldness toward the
world. She carries her body with a slump in her shoulders, as is typical of this
Feature. Thus, she is generally unassuming and unpretentious.
As a Scholar with a Goal of Growth, she is always reading and studying various
things which interest her. She dabbles in many things, as is typical of this
Goal, but seems to master none of them because there is always something else to
divert her attention. This could be the Negative Pole of Confusion at work. In
combination with her Idealist Attitude, this Goal of Growth and her strong
Emotional Centers makes her a very warm and personable human being. She loves to
socialize and have parties. There is always a gang of people at her house,
mixing and mingling, and taking advantage of her friendliness. She is liked by
INDIVIDUAL CHART ANALYSIS #6
Once again this is a person that I worked with for a while, and had the
opportunity to observe daily. He is a bachelor in his late twenties at the time
of this writing.
Like many older souls, he finds the immature antics of younger souls to be
amusing and silly, and would occasionally make comments about this to me at
work. Even though he has no background in metaphysics, he of his own accord came
to believe in reincarnation. It often happens with Old souls this way.
This Slave works as a draftsman for an engineering firm. He is a good draftsman,
as he himself will tell you (notice the Arrogance Feature), but it is unlikely
he will ever become an engineering designer. This is not for lack of
intelligence or adequate strength in his Intellectual Centers, but because of
his Reduction Goal he lacks the drive and ambition to confront the challenge
of being a design draftsman. Like several others I know who have this Goal, he
cannot tolerate any confusion in his work. He does not like it when the boss
piles more than one thing at a time on his desk. This Trait is not always
appreciated by employers, who are usually eager to get ahead in life and do a
lot of things at once, and I suspect it is the reason he has lost a couple of
This Idealist in the Reservation Mode was very friendly and gentle everybody
liked him. He was so easygoing and mild-mannered that he could not offend
anyone. I could tell when his Idealist Attitude slipped into the Negative Pole
of Abstraction, because he would get spacey and scatterbrained. His mind would
drift off of his work and onto socializing with his coworkers. Another factor
here is that Old souls typically lack career ambitions. In other words, in
combination with his Reduction Goal, it seemed that he had a knack for avoiding
work by mixing with his friends and to an Idealist, everybody is his friend.
He finds it difficult to understand why the bosses are so hard nosed and
hard-driving about something as unimportant as making a buck when the real
enjoyment of life is casual conversation with anyone who will listen.
Probably one of the reasons he is a bachelor at this late date is because of his
weak Sexual Center he does not need female companionship. More of his energy
is consumed in doing (strong Moving Center) whatever pops into his consciousness
(strong Instinctive Center).
His Arrogance Feature is not particularly noticeable because he has so many
Involution Process Traits: Slave Role, Reduction Goal, and Reservation Mode.
They tend to neutralize the Arrogance and make a more balanced personality.
Overall, this soul is experiencing a lifetime with a personality that is not
particularly exciting, and not unusually challenging either. Old Slaves may
prefer this arrangement.
INDIVIDUAL CHART ANALYSIS # 7
This is a fellow now in his early thirties. I have worked with him and I was
also a personal friend for several years. We have now gone our separate ways.
As an Infant soul at the fifth Level, he is very immature psychologically
compared to most of his fellows in this culture. Since practically everyone
around him is an older soul than he, it is obvious to most everyone that he is
psychologically immature: he acts like a kid he even looks like a kid. He
will look and act like a kid all his life, even when he is old. I am not saying
this to put him down, because I really liked the guy and enjoyed his company. It
is just that his perceptions are primitive. For instance, he thought it was the
neatest thing in the world to twist somebody's name in some strange way. He
called me "Philbatros".
He has a body that reminds me of many other Warriors I have seen: it is lean and
sinewy. A couple of the Warrior-like things he enjoyed were riding his bicycle
and martial arts. He was a Bruce Lee fan. (Most other Warriors I have seen
prefer motorcycles, competitive sports, and guns.)
An Infant soul can aspire to great things, however, despite the inherent
incompetence of this soul Age, if he has the right Overleaves. Notice the
Idealist Attitude, the Power Mode, and the Arrogance Feature. We have here a
high-minded person with a lot of self-confidence and a high opinion of himself.
The Power Mode often causes the person to overreach his abilities. The Idealist
Attitude often causes the person to get involved in utopian causes. Arrogance
often causes a person to think he is too big for his britches. He is presently
involved in a religious cult that wants to help usher in the Kingdom of God, and
he has every intention of becoming an ordained minister therein, with his own
congregation. Even though he did not graduate from High School, he is training
in that Church's college for the ministry. He might just pull it off, but how
well??? He will make many mistakes, but he will learn a lot, in this life.
It is a good thing that this person who has the Goal of Rejection also has the
Idealist Attitude. This Goal can be quite obnoxious you can never please
such a person: they can be bitchy and grouchy as hell, always offering some
criticism. But the Idealist Attitude tempers this in a way that makes it easy to
live with. I really enjoyed arguing with him about the meaning of life.
As you might expect from a Warrior with a strong Sexual Center, he gave up his
virginity at about the age of 15. He was rather promiscuous up until the time he
got religious and such activity is condemned by the church. He has been
married twice. His first marriage to an Infant Sage did not work well.
Overall, we have here a person who has a reasonably pleasant array of Traits,
and he will go rather far for one so immature.
INDIVIDUAL CHART ANALYSIS # 8
This is another person that I worked with on the job for several months. He is
in his late twenties, married, and has one child.
This Sage went to college to become an Architect. When that did not work out
quite right, he changed his major and ended up getting his degree in Interior
Design. Now, due to circumstances, he works as an engineering designer. Because
of his Goal of Quiescence, he simply rolls with the punches and goes with the
flow. In regard to his Sage Role, he must be in the Negative Pole of Oration
because he sure likes to talk. Sages love to tell stories (they tend to view
life as if it were a soap opera), and because of his strong Impressional Center,
he loves to tell you "a funny thing happened on the way to the office"
.By his own admission, he should be in some sort of sales job, or other
public-relations occupation. This also is a suitable career for a Sage. However,
with his Goal of Quiescence, it is unlikely he will exert the initiative or
ambition to try to make this happen. If it does, it will probably be through
Sages are often rather "dingey", because they are attuned to the
dramatic and theatrical aspects of life, but this Sage is as down-to-earth as
any I have ever met. I suppose this is because he is a Pragmatist with a Goal of
Quiescence and has a strong Intellectual Center. A Pragmatist typically is very
matter-of-fact, and the Goal of Quiescence has no particular axe to grind beyond
keeping things on an even keel, so he is quite easy to work with. Sometimes the
Power Mode can cause a person to come on too strongly, but in his case, this is
not so. He is confident and decisive the Positive Pole of Authority
without being overbearing. When talking to clients on the phone, he has no
difficulty making up his mind about what to do to solve the problems that arise,
in spite of the fact that he does not have very many years of experience. This
is both the advantage and the disadvantage of the Power Mode. Sometimes he does
not know what he is talking about. The Sage Role in combination with the Power
Mode has a tendency to be glib he tries to talk his way out of something,
without the true substance to back it up.
His Feature of Greed is noticeable in that he is rather self-centered he
likes to talk about what is going on in his own life and in his own head more
than anything else. This particular Feature is the most common among the people
I have done Charts on.
As a Young soul at the seventh Level, he is probably right about at the peak of
the soul Age distribution curve in America. He feels right at home in this
culture. Were he closer to either extreme he would not be so comfortable in our
society. Because he is at the seventh Level, I suspect that when he is older he
will begin to ask the big questions about the meaning of life. I have already
seen some evidence of this potential, but for now, as a Young soul in his
twenties, he is mostly concerned with mundane affairs.
INDIVIDUAL CHART ANALYSIS # 9
This is a friend that I have known for several years. He is in his late thirties
at the time of this writing, and is a professional astrologer.
This Idealist Sage has been involved in metaphysics since he was a teenager. As
you would expect from an Idealist with a strong Imagination Center, his approach
to astrology is very philosophical. That is, he sees in this study a source of
wisdom and understanding of all of the cosmos. Like most Sages, he is very
well-read, and also, as you might expect from a Sage, he has written books (on
As he himself once told me, his Goal of Growth causes him to think of the world
as a cafeteria and he has to sample a little bit of everything. This means
his interests are diversified, but it also means he is easily distracted the
Negative Pole of Confusion. His Feature of Greed in combination with the Growth
Goal means that he tends to be self-indulgent. He feels that he can never get
enough of a wide variety of things. He has difficulty saying no to himself.
Notice that his three strongest Centers are the Impressional, the Imagination,
and the Instinctive. In my opinion, these are the psychic Centers. Among those
people that I have Charted who claim to be psychic, invariably there is emphasis
in these areas. This person does psychic readings as well as astrological
analysis. The Impressional Center in particular is so strong in him that he
literally feels what other people are feeling emotionally. This is so intense at
times that he sometimes removes himself from others if the
"vibrations" are bad. However, this Center in combination with his
Sage Role also make him a very entertaining and comedic person. He tells funny
stories very well.
Michael has said that Mature souls tend to be neurotic, and this has been a
problem with him, by his own admission. This sort of thing is only intensified
by the fact that he is a Sage they tend to be very dramatic about their
lives anyway. On top of that add the factor of Greed which makes him
especially attuned to his own internal mental workings plus the sensitivity
of his Impressional Center, and you have a person who has had difficulty
maintaining his psychological stability. He is not crazy by any means, just a
little neurotic at times.
The disadvantage of the Observation Mode in combination with the Feature of
Greed is that it causes the person to be aloof from you, and too wrapped up in
his own world to pay much attention to you. The advantage of the Observation
Mode is that it causes the person to approach life rather objectively. Such a
person will have the same detached regard for himself. This person, with his
Feature of Greed, has himself as a favorite object of study. Therefore he is a
very self-aware person. He knows what he is, and fulfills his identity rather
INDIVIDUAL CHART ANALYSIS # 10
This is the author's Chart. He thought you might be interested in what sort of
person would write a book like this. There is a reason why he is writing this
book: his personality is well suited for precisely the subject that this book
covers. This book is him, in print. He will point this out as we go.
This Artisan majored in art in college, but has ended up as an engineering
draftsman and designer. Both of these activities are well suited to this Role.
Because he has a far stronger Conceptual Center than Intellectual Center, he
would make a better artist than an engineer, but nevertheless, this career
provides him with a decent living without interfering with his main interest in
life: understanding the universe and how it works.
Many Artisans are writers also, especially writers on technical themes. This is
one way they generate a work of art. This book is the author's third attempt
the other two were not completed. (Old souls lack drive.) You may have noticed
this book is written like a technical manual. He apologizes. It's just the way
With his Goal of Acceptance, he is very concerned about relationships and
getting along well with other people. Because he is in the Observation Mode, he
watches people a lot, and has done a lot of reading about them also. The
Spiritualist Attitude typically causes a person to be interested in the
psychology of whatever situation he finds himself in. Hence, behold: a book on
the psychology of personality and relationships.
The Spiritualist Attitude has manifested in him in several other ways. As a
child he was interested in astronomy. He liked to look (Observation Mode) up at
the heavens. "Heavens" turned into "heaven" at an early age
also, when he became involved in a fundamentalist Christian sect. This
association lasted for twenty years, during which he searched for answers to all
the big cosmic questions (a late Level phenomenon). He became dissatisfied with
this religion, however, and then found metaphysical philosophy just a few years
ago. Among metaphysical books, he prefers those which are revelations by spirit
entities to humans. Again, this is a result of his Spiritualist Attitude.
As a late Level Old soul, he is nearing the end of his entanglement with the
physical plane. At the culmination of thousands of years of engineering
experience, he likes to think that he is finally arriving at an understanding of
this world. The Process Aspect System is the product. In this regard, notice
particularly that the Conceptual Center is his strongest. This Center involves
archetypes the most fundamental ingredients or broad categories of things.
Ever since he was a kid, he has been interested in physics and cosmology, the
extremes of small and large in space and time, because it is here that the
archetypes are found.
