What are the Core-Brilliance Types of Your Favorite Christmas Characters?

Ah, the story of Rudolph never ceases to entertain and inspire children of all ages.  And the classic video Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer has been viewed countless times since its 1964 debut.

Just for fun, let’s take a look at the characters and how to type them from a Core-Brilliance perspective. We’ll begin with the star of the show, the luminary reindeer himself.

Rudolph – Naturally sensitive about not fitting in, Rudolph wears his feelings on his sleeves.  (Empathy)  He shows shades of Potential when he assures Santa, “I’ll find them, Sir! (mom, dad, Clarice) I’ll find them all!”  

Rudolph then treks off to fight the Abominable Snowman alone.  This tendency to don a superhero cape, save the world (and Christmas) is common to Potentials.

Rudolph’s Likely Core-Brilliance Type: Empathy-potential or Potential-empathy

Santa makes a personal house call to see the newborn Rudolph. Here he seems to show Empathy as he comments, “He’s going to be on my team one day-he’d better get to know me!”

Santa also reveals a little Service-truth when he’s waiting for  the elf skit to begin.  He checks his watch and says, “Well, let’s hurry up and get this over with. I have to go down and look over the new gear.”  After the song, he says, “It needs work. I have to go.”  He calls a spade a spade and concentrates on the action at hand.

He’s an E one moment and a T the other, so he could have some personality issues, but let’s keep that under wraps. We must consider the children. Let’s just call Santa “STRESSED!”

Mrs. Claus hails as a “caretaker” Service, encouraging her husband to “EAT!  EAT! I am going to have to take in your suit!”

While listening to Santa’s elves sing about all Santa “should do,” Mrs. Claus smiles and nods her head to the melody.  She finally spoon-feeds him before he takes off to deliver gifts. “The children must have a fat Santa!” she insists. (strong in tradition)  Santa is blessed to have such a helpful wife.

Hermey ‘s honest and to the point and not even remotely affected by peer pressure from other elves.  He says he wants to be a dentist, not a toymaker, When pressured, he rebels against authority.  “You can’t fire me!” he declares, “I quit!”  This high level of independence and confidence is typical of a Truth.  Way to take up for your destiny, Hermey! He also skips participating in the traditional Elf song and dance to work on dolls’ teeth.

Clarice the Doe gushes compliments for Rudolph and his “grand” nose.  She croons a heartfelt song filled with connection.  We anticipate she is an Empathy, taking up for the underdog.  But she’s also falling in love, and that clouds true core-brilliance.
We’ll call her Love-Struck.

Yukon Cornelius is a confident leader.  He is in charge, calling the mountains, “MY land!”  There’s no mistaking this gentleman’s Core-Brilliance type!  Listen to some of his quotes. 

“The snowman has one weakness and I know it!”
“We’ll have to outwit the fiend with our superior intelligence!”
He ends up training and reforming the snowmonster, rehabilitating him, seeing the potential even in the Abominable creature.

Is Amanda Knox Waiting to Be Understood?

Upon watching some of the interviews with Amanda Knox regarding her new book Waiting to Be Heard, I found myself cringing with the harsh judgments thrown at her. Not regarding her trial, but judgments related to her core-brilliance type.

Amanda’s words and body language seemed to fit one particular core type – the Truth pattern. And both interviewers I watched commented on her personality preferences as if her natural strengths somehow accentuated her guilt.

The very actions Knox was judged on – her “calculating” responses, her lack of emotion, her focus on the facts – are all a valid and valuable part of the Truth Core-Brilliance™.

As a brain patterning specialist, I find it unreasonable and unfair for someone to be  judged for his/her natural core design.  My interview with journalist Dina Demetrius in the above video showcases another side to this young lady’s dilemma.

Have you ever been judged harshly for your own natural talents?  What are your thoughts about Knox?
