#TypesTuesday – Tracy Flick and Hillary Clinton : Power of Conscience
Hillary Clinton and Tracy Flick (Reese Witherspoon) in the movie Election are a great examples of hard-driving intense Power of Conscience characters.
I found a fantastic clip of Tracy and Hillary intercut in a scene from Election. It is a wonderful sketch of everything that is most important to this Character Type. The clip refers back to Clinton’s run against Barack Obama (a Power of Imagination character) in 2008.
Power of Conscience characters believe that leadership must be earned by dedication, hard work, thorough preparation, and devotion to duty. Leadership must be deserved. One must be worthy in order to lead. At their worst, these characters can become rigid, accusatory, sanctimonious, judgmental, and hypocritical.
