Are You A Purple DOT?
If you have Purple DOT as your main nature, you will communicate through inner knowings. You can’t always explain how you know what you know; you just know. Others might wonder how you seem to know the things you know. In fact, you probably even respond to people with the words, “I know”. If you are strong in this nature, you are also aware of the future and can easily sense what is to come. As a result, you are concerned about the future and often think of ideas or create plans that cause yourself to think that you are ahead of your time.
