Traits in My Wind Personality
Over the next few posts I thought it would be fun to share some traits about my Wind-Fire personality. The Path Elements Assessment and the book I published, The Four Elements of Success, has been a game changer for many who have learned how ‘pattern recognition’ can serve us in our relationships, teams and families.
We are constantly looking for ways to improve our communication skills and learn how to respect differences in each other. I set out on this journey many years ago and continue to learn something daily about my personality and how I can improve the ways I speak and engage with those I meet.
Here’s five ways a Wind personality like myself, likes to engage. I will add more over the next several days. I thought it might be fun to engage with each other about these traits. Feel free to share your assessment results if you have taken the Path Elements Assessment or have read the book. If you are curious about how much Fire, Earth, Water or Wind you have in your personality you can take the assessment here:
Wind enjoys being on the move and loves activity of almost any kind. Can sometimes be quick and impulsive when taking action—and tends to “kick up dust.” Tends to think out loud in order to solve problems. Sometimes mistakes talking for doing and feelings for results.
Wind tends to expect positive outcomes and usually feels unthreatened by unpredictable results. Winds place great faith in natural charm and verbal persuasion skills; expect to “talk their way out” of any challenging circumstance—and often do!

Wind may be quick to speak in anger and may use words regretted later. Tends to “explode” and then forgive and restore relationships quickly. Wants to talk through causes of anger. Cause of anger is often injured pride; may shift blame to others in order to look good.
Winds’ strong desire for freedom may cause them to be casual about authority and rules. When words or actions provoke an unintended response, may react with humor, trying to ease tension. Tend to view and approach others as peers instead of recognizing formal lines of authority.
Wind verbalizes feelings and arrives at decisions by talking issues out. Listening skills are generally not highly developed. Communicates and influences through persuasive appeals, stories, and humor. Is usually unguarded in conversation; may exaggerate; may display emotions openly.
Do any of these speak to you? Are you a Wind? Maybe you are opposite Wind, which is Earth. Maybe you live with your opposite…
Share any thoughts or ideas you may have. This is a fun topic and full of inspiration!
