MercyThe Mercy Person

Here is a brief summary of the Mercy person. You can find a more detailed description here. There is a lot more information about the typical Mercy person on the previous version of the website.

I have also put together a list of traits comparing the Mercy with the Teacher.

The Mercy person:

1)      Is constantly reminded of related experiences and how he felt in those situations.

2)      Has a few close friends.

3)      Remembers special occasions and likes to be remembered on special occasions.

4)      Is emotionally sensitive and tends to talk about emotional subjects indirectly.

5)      Is very aware of non-verbal speech, and notices the way that things are said.

6)      Can be spiritually sensitive. Emphasizes love. Empathizes with others.

7)      Learns through experience rather than theory. Has many childhood memories.

8)      Is especially good at coming up with novel solutions to problems.

9)      Is able to focus upon a situation and ignore unrelated experiences.

10)  Is aware of color and matching.

11)  Hates insincerity. Defends those who are mistreated.

In maturity, the Mercy person learns to love truth and learning for the internal stability that it brings. He becomes a champion for human value and sensitivity, known for his unusual yet effective solutions.

Processing: The Mercy combines associative, concrete, and emotion. This means that the Mercy is continually being reminded of related experiences, each with an emotional label. These emotional labels color how the Mercy feels about his present situation. For instance, suppose that the Mercy person tries to eat squid for the first time. The flavor itself may be tolerable, but his overall reaction may be negative because of seeing tentacles and suckers lying in his bowl.

The Mercy is able to concentrate on experiences and can ignore experiences that lie outside of his current focus.

Awareness: Notice that no arrows go towards the Mercy. This means that the Mercy has very little awareness of subconscious thought. Instead, he comes up with conclusions but does not know why he responds in the way he does. While he has limited awareness, he is also capable of truly original thought, putting experiences together in novel but effective ways.
