When you were born, you weren’t born just a blank slate. Anyone who has spent any time with a baby knows this simply isn’t true. Babies are born with a personality. You can often even tell when they’re in utero what kind of person your little one will be. Some babies are happy, placid and love everyone. Others don’t seem to stop fussing until they are sleeping (which is a feat in and of itself!).
We are all born with soul contracts, distinct personalities and temperaments. As we grow, these develop and become even stronger and more evident. Your soul type is chosen as part of the life plan your soul created before you were even born. It is the biggest influence on who you are, what you will do with your life and how you will spend your time.
I first heard about Soul Types when I read Ainslie MacLeod’s book The Instruction.
The book helped me to understand a bit more about myself. When I took the quiz, it just reaffirmed what I already knew about myself. (I’m a spiritualist/caregiver soul type.) Macleod says
Understanding your soul type will allow you to move forward with far greater self-confidence, making choices in your career and relationships that support the person you really are. It will help you to create a happier and more fulfilling life. And it will enable you to counter criticism with a heartfelt, “That’s just the way I am.”

Post your results here! I’d love to hear what soul type readers are. I suspect many of you are spiritualists given the nature of this blog, though I could be wrong!
