Gardeners find meaning in contributing to growth—and tend to avoid conflict that could jeopardize that contribution, scorch the earth, or set back or thwart God’s intentions. Gardeners look for challenges and opportunities, and seek partners rather than enemies.

Gardeners are not conflict-averse or non-confrontational. They will fight to protect a Garden, but not to eradicate an enemy. After all, every farmer keeps a rifle in the house for emergencies. Only when the greater vision of the Garden is kept in view will Gardeners engage in a smaller conflict against weeds, pests, or interlopers.

Gardeners must have a God—or a vision to strive toward—but need no Devils.
