For Harmonisers, it is most important to live in harmony with their fellow human beings in an atmosphere of kindness and genuine warmth. They have an authentic interest in other people and their lives. In a professional environment they are the ones who care about the wellbeing of team-mates and clients. They take the initiative to approach others and are nurturing, friendly and always ready to help. Harmonisers also have a natural ability to please the senses – their own as well as those of others. Many of them are excellent cooks and hosts. They know how to turn a house into a home, creating an atmosphere of comfort and warmth. They like to pamper all the senses: sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. Being so receptive for sensual pleasures, they like to wear fabrics that feel good: silk, fine linen, soft wool and pure cotton.
They usually have a talent for combining colours, and they enjoy taking good care of themselves and looking attractive. They love compliments, especially unconditional and personal ones. In turn they are generous with praise and say things like: “I’m so happy to see you. I missed you,” or “You look fantastic. That jersey goes so well with your lovely green eyes!” Harmonisers like touch and attention and often exchange hugs and warm glances. Likewise, they appreciate attentive acknowledgement from others.
Children, family and friends are a constant source of happiness for Harmonisers and they love having extended family and friends around the table enjoying a good meal and telling each other their joys and sorrows. When someone needs a shoulder to cry on, Harmonisers are ever ready to offer a listening ear, comfort and encouragement. Daily soul food for Harmonisers is to love and be loved and to experience life through their senses. Their world is the world of emotions, senses, friendship and love. (If you visualised only women Harmonisers here, remember that all of the above holds true for men too. Statistically, however, 75% of all Harmonisers in the United States, the only place we have validated data for so far, are indeed women.)
