In the workplace, Knights find winners—victors—heroic, and sometimes interpret those who hold high position as evidence of their success. As a result, Knights can become ambitious.

Knights often envision God—or a company’s CEO—as the Great King or the Great Knight. Kings have courts, and courts have hierarchies. Because of this, Knights admire champions whose successes or virtue have earned them a special place in the King’s court—or the corporate boardroom. Knights can be competitive and seek to best or surpass professional enemies. They sometimes seek to climb organizational ladders to sit among God’s—or the industry’s—champions. Knights may also try to identify their allies and enemies at work and engage in intrigues to gain advantage.

Knights in the workplace defer to rank, and follow orders from superiors. And Knight authorities in corporate or spiritual life attribute dissent or disagreement with them to insubordination or inferior thinking.

In churches, Knights often believe they should defer to those who hold positions of authority. These Knights believe those of higher rank prospered because they followed the rules more accurately or hold greater spiritual wisdom. As a result, Knights conclude God ordained their leadership and their orders should be followed or their example should be emulated.
