We have already seen two types of people who possess earthy characteristics, i.e. Gua 2 and Gua 5 people. Yet, there is another type of earthy people, Gua 8. Although all three Guas have earthy characteristics, they are not all the same.
Gua 8 – The Mountain
The kind of earth that Gua 8 belongs to is like mountain, in contrast to Gua 2 which is like flat ground. So, although both of them are quite inflexible, Gua 2 people tend to be satisfied with the status-quo, while Gua 8 people may the tendencies to achieve goals.
When try to achieve goals, Gua 8 people could set targets to progressively reach to the top, just like climbing mountains. They have goals but they are not greedy. They would not set aggressive targets but reachable goals only.
Similar to Gua 2 and Gua 5 people, Gua 8 people also have good perseverance. You can’t beat a mountain easily. No matter how hard you hit it, the mountain still stands there.
Gua 8 People – Disadvantages
Looks like Gua 8 people are quite good. Do they have bad characteristics? Yes. as they are quite down-to-earth, sometimes they could go overboard and become hardheaded. They could be a little bit too practical and lack flexibility to handle challenges.
Besides, as rigid as the mountain, Gua 8 people may be less able to appreciate other people’s feeling. They could work hard as an employee, but if they want to be a leader, they need to learn how to drive people to excel.
