wrapping up the guessing game ~

who is who, deep in the hundred acre wood?

Prophet- He is a deep thinker. He is greatly loved by his friends despite a melancholy nature which he may be inclined to have brought upon himself. although he appears dark, there seems to be alot of truth, profound and insightful thoughts he brings to the table. He also seems to be the quickest to assess a situation, and usually we see him pronounce judgment on it. or to see himself as victim.

Servant: He is perfectly safe for Pooh Bear. He never gets annoyed with anyone, and he is able to see the best and believe the best about all his friends in the Hundred Acre Woods. He is devoted and loyal, a reliable and patient friend. Never criticizes, is completely trustworthy, and seems to have no personal agenda of his own.

Teacher: He is the character with the most knowledge, the "go to" character for information. Even if he doesn't have the most accurate answers, all of the other characters assume he does. And because he knows more than they do, he is revered as the "all wise one." He loves details and always starts at the beginning of time to explain anything.

Exhorter: Always enthusiastic, always looking for a party. He is one dimensional. He is the happy side of an exhorter, and he hardly labors for shifting paradigms or changing the Hundred Acre Woods, but we have to admit he is a force to be reckoned with. When he comes into the forest, it is in an uproar.

Giver: He is rich. He has a house and plenty of food. He doesn't run out of honey, but is well equipped to stand a famine, or a Pooh Bear visit. He is the most practical, the most helpful, the most dependable who is often called upon on to make things happen or help the others out of scrapes. He knows many things and is never really surprised by new knowledge. He acts as though he was expecting it. That is classic giver, to act as though they are never surprised. He hates being taken advantage of and he has a tendency toward expecting the worst. He is busy, busy, busy.

Ruler: Who rules over the hundred acres woods. He is summoned when there is a dilemma and he comes to solve it. All of the kingdom owes its allegiance to him, and they are willing for him to be the one in charge.

Mercy: Who navigates with his heart and his senses. He is simple in his tastes and we love him because he doesn't strive to be something else. He is transparent and vulnerable, a very precious mercy, who loves everyone. He doesn't seem to take offense, because maybe he doesn't see it. We sigh and wish we could be like him with his deep satisfaction about life and his philosophical acceptance of his own shortcomings and his high regard for his friends. He aligns the hundred acre woods with his presence. He is Christopher Robin's favorite. He is the one whom Christopher communicates the deepest things with, like when he is about to go off to school. He is one of the best loved characters in all of literature because he shares his generous heart with all of us.
