LEVEL 4: THE CAREGIVER

At this level persons focus on helping others, with a “You Win” philosophy. Things are not taken personally. There is deep compassion for others and passion for activities that they engage in, and with a tendency to want to “fix” things and become upset when things can’t be fixed. Thus judgement of others is still present. Work is more team oriented, with the desire to bear the burdens of others, and to make a difference in the world. In relationships the tendency is to meet the needs of the partner or family before their own needs. The desire is to help, and nurture, and not control.
