The 4 TREE Personality
The next Trigram in the I Ching is the “WIND.” Planting seeds and watching them grow, Wind occurs on a range of scales: from thunderstorm flows lasting tens of minutes, to local breezes generated by heating of land surfaces lasting a few hours, to global winds resulting from the difference in absorption of solar energy between the climate zones on Earth.
The wind is what carries and spreads seeds to faraway places. The wind spans the globe. 4 Tree personalities are philosophical, love to learn, and love traveling the world and learning about different cultures.
