Includer is always making the circle wider. Includer believes everyone is an insider and involves the tireless pursuit of others. Includer involves the appreciation of others who step up and become part of something. People exceptionally talented in the Includer them accept others. They have an awareness of others that are left out and make an effort to include them. Includer has a sense-driven ability to make people feel like they are a part of something. Includer is tolerant, inviting, welcoming and aware. Includers are sensitive to those who are excluded and have an innate desire and capacity to bring them into the group. Their thoughtful approach to others increases communication and productivity.  Includer brings a level of tolerance and acceptance of diversity. 


Includers always have their radars on and are sensing other people who might not be in front of them. Raw Includer sounds like, "I need to be included" and it only focuses the Includer theme on the self. Mature Includer sounds like, "I feel connected" and is patient. Raw Includer invites everyone so no one is special, while mature Includer thinks everyone is special and therefore, invited.
