Learning To See Roles 

A student trying to guess the role, etc., without anchoring 
perceptions in what's right in front of him--eyes, facial expressions,
 energy, etc.--can go wildly off-base, using circumstantial evidence.
 The roles look and feel different from one another. If you jump to the
 conclusion that someone is a sage, for example, based just on 
behaviors, then you might assume that a theatrical scholar with sage 
imprinting is a sage, because you have nothing else to go on. If 
you're expecting all artisans to be arty and unpractical, you'll miss
 the earthy ones working in construction and other trades. If you 
immediately assume warrior or king when someone is authoritative or 
bossy, you could miss the other roles with a goal of dominance, or 
power or aggression mode. Behavior results from many factors, 
including overleaves, body type, astrology, imprinting, and past
lives, but your essence is what you *are*, not what you do. Behavior
 often but doesn't always reflect your essence, so you have to look 
deeper to see essence.
