Self-perception and perception of others
- Does not fluctuate due to external evaluation
- Less need for external validation
- Able to balance between withdrawing inwardly to be introspective (which is a meditation process) and engaging outwardly to build connection with others.
- More empathetic, hence able to draw from rich psychological resources.
- Focus more on contributing to the world (generative) than on surviving/meeting one’s material needs (which is perceived and exaggerated).
