Essence: practising in the caring profession.
Practising in the caring profession
They want to learn how to take care of people and how to be a good mother. They give all their attention to the people who have been entrusted to their care, not only from a sense of duty, but also because they feel they can learn something from it.
Helping others to take care: a foster mother or child minder.
They love children and can spend all day taking care of them. They want to have a lot of children when they are older and help them to grow up happily. They often choose jobs as nannies or nursery teachers or child minders. They like helping their own mother, are eager to learn how to take care of the younger children, and will be happy to babysit for friends and family. Their own mother will probably have been equally caring, someone who was always there for the children.
Educating others in how to bring up their children
They love teaching, especially on the subject of child care. They are very good at helping others to understand the finer points of child care. They teach with patience, understanding and tact.
Criticism leads to self-pity
They like to receive a lot of guidance themselves. Positive suggestions are quickly taken up. They like to hear that they have done well and have been a good mother. Negative criticism tends to hit them very hard. They feel they will never learn and they become weepy and full of self pity.
