Children with the gift of Ruling are rather easy to identify. They like to be in charge. Even as children, Rulers realize they have an ability that others do not. They can lead others to accomplish a common goal and succeed. These children are capable of planning, organizing, and setting up a method for others to follow.
A child with a Ruling gift, may put together schedules for everyone to use. When playing with friends, they may organize them into groups and hand out lists. At first, this may seem overbearing or controlling. However, knowing your child’s gift allows you to understand the reason behind that behavior. Schedules and lists help everyone to make steady progress toward accomplishing a common goal. Accomplishments are motivation for the Ruler. As parents, recognizing those accomplishments is a special way to affirm your Ruler child.
They tend to be assertive and plan ahead. So naturally, Rulers can appear bossy to other people who do not understand the gift and motivation behind it. As adults, this gifting enables one to see the “big picture.” The Ruler has an ability to look ahead for possibilities and dangers, communicate this to the people, and guide them to a successful completion.
