Ask Carol: What is the best way to know someone's Energy Type when you are first meeting them?

Energy Profiling is an awesome tool to very quickly get a sense of someone’s true nature when you are meeting them for the first time. This allows you to align your understanding and expectations in line with who this person is, which naturally creates rapport and connection. The woman who sent in this question wondered what facial feature to pay attention to the most to Type people, my answer may surprise you!

    I really appreciate this information! I am not a ‘people watcher’ and have found it challanging to ‘Type’ someone on a first meeting because I don’t want to be staring at them. The assessment of what to notice in their body language is a great help – Thank you!

  • Lucy

    yes this was helpful and a big aha with the “push” of a T3 in a line or something! I will keep that in mind when someone is getting all up on me when I’m in line LOL
    altho as a T3 myself, I don’t THINK I do that ??

    • Kristine

      Funny, Lucy, I was just sharing this vlog information with a friend (I bought her the IJMN book for Christmas), and I thought the same thing about being a T3, ‘do I really send a message to people that I am pushing them?’ I realize that I think I do, but not necessarily negatively, just that my elements naturally have a pushing energy and it is felt whenever I enter a building or a room. I never even noticed it before and I am so generally happy to see people that I don’t think it has been perceived as a bad thing, however… 😉

    Great video, Carol! I have a question for you. I know someone who comes across in all the ways you describe a Type 4 without understanding how negatively it comes across without the awareness of EP. And yet, her coloring is a Type 3.

    She can be very cliquish and hurtful and rude in her perceived arrogance and is very insecure. Is this a Type 3 living as a Type 4 to feel safe? Or is she a Type 4 who looks like a Type 3? I know this sounds a little silly, but I hope I’m understandable in how I’m phrasing this. If she were on facebook, I’d email you her link, but she’s not.

    Hi Carol! For about 2 weeks now I have been completely immersed in all of your books, the Chakra7 online course, a full member at the Carol Tuttle Healing Center and now DYT that I actually hear your voice in my head constantly! Which is a great vacation from the usual chatter…thank you! Wow, I may have just answered my own question, for me it’s all or nothing and I am extremely loyal to only those I respect! My question is similiar to Pamela above; how do I know if I am a Type 4 with a secondary Type 3 or if I am truely a Type 3 that has developed stronger Type 4 traits after being berrated for all my life about coming on “too strong” and being “too pushy”? I have been so confused I have basically cut myself off from the rest of the world because I am tired of being rejected. I really want to be sure before I clean out my closet, cut my hair and FULL ON embrace this change! I just want to be me and say BOO to the world!
    PS – I think I have some of both 3 and 4 facial features, but I may just be in denial? Is it possible to send sample pictures for a facial profiling?

    • Carol

      Dear Jaime, I’ll help you out here, I snuck on to Facebook and looked at your photo’s, I see dominant Type 4 in your facial features! Go for it.
