If you’ve been following along with us, you’ve had some time to take our fun personality quiz for yourself, learn the details of Knight, King, Sage (KKS), and read about it in action.

But there are far deeper benefits you’ll gain from using KKS as a tool in your life. And like all else, the more you use it the greater these underlying effects will be.

  1. KKS helps give you a greater sense of self-trust, self-compassion, and self-esteem by developing a better relationship with yourself.
  2. KKS helps you form more meaningful relationships with others through a greater sense of connection, communication, empathy, and sympathy.
  3. KKS can be either simple or complex, making it highly effective at suiting your needs.

Creating A Better Relationship With Yourself

Before we can truly understand the world around us, we have to understand the world within us.

KKS will help you take that step by helping you create a better relationship with yourself.

For one, you’ll start to trust yourself more…

Often times we don’t realize that we’re trying to live up to someone else’s standards. We’re surrounded by these standards all the time from the people closest to us, from society, and even from ourselves.

When these standards work against how you naturally want to act, you’ll develop pressure and judgment for the way you handle things. A lot of people exert so much pressure and judgment on themselves, that they begin to doubt the way they handle things from the very beginning.

Not only is this counterproductive, but you’ll also have to work that much harder to overcome your doubt first.

So many people have told us that once they understand how they go about doing things (whether that’s taking things head on like a knight, planning for something first like a king, or trying to understand the different options like a sage) they have a huge sense of relief!

One of the greatest things about discovering whether you’re a knight, king, or sage, is that you’ll learn to trust how you approach life your way and find the confidence in that, as opposed to trying to live life someone else’s way.

By using KKS, you can build that self-trust by understanding how and why you act the way you do, which will generate a greater sense of self-compassion.

From there, you can allow yourself to carry on without any doubt and pressure. If you like the way you handle things, keep doing it. If you don’t, you can change it without the added pressure.

Through a greater sense of self-trust and self-compassion, you’ll notice that you can take things on in a much more positive mindset, which ultimately gives you greater self-esteem.

At that point you’re truly a supportive player on your own team, as opposed to fighting against yourself first before getting anywhere.

Not only can you change the things you don’t like about yourself, the skills and attributes you do like will be greatly enhanced.

Have Meaningful Relationships In Your Life

If you use KKS more to understand how other people react to various situations in life, you’ll gain insight into their personality as well.

This will help you develop more meaningful relationships.

There’s more substance in a relationship that is built with deep understanding, so it’s no surprise that understanding others is a major step in forming meaningful relationships.

Not only will you have a greater sense of connection (better quality time) with that person, you’ll also communicate more naturally and truthfully as well.

You’ll get to know people for who they are.

By using KKS to identify why a person acts the way they do, you’ll become more empathetic and sympathetic when someone else is struggling.

Empathy and sympathy help reduce the unnecessary conflict that develops from poor communication brought upon by a limited knowledge of the other person.

By understanding why a knight can get overly passionate, or why a sage can get lost in various options, or why a king can get stuck in all their plans, you’ll be more open and forgiving. Then you can come to appreciate the benefits each different personality type can present, even in their more extreme moments.

It Suits Your Needs

One of the greatest things about using KKS as a tool is that it can identify both the simple and complex aspects of our personalities, all while having some good fun.

Let’s talk about the simpler aspects first:

We all fall into one of the three personalities more often than the others, which greatly affects our demeanor. This is the personality you are most like, or got as your answer on our quiz, which we call the key mindset.

The key mindset is pretty easy to identify when you know the different traits and qualities associated with being a knight, king, or sage.If you’re familiar enough with KKS to do this, then you’ll be at a great advantage when it comes to understanding any personality better, whether it’s yours or someone else’s.

For example, if you can identify your key mindset, then you’ll understand how you think about your emotions, reasoning, and surroundings most of the time.

That’s a whole lot of information and insight you can use to your advantage!

This applies to other people as well. Next time you’re meeting someone, try figuring out whether they’re a knight, king, or sage.

You’d be surprised at what you’ll learn about them and how much fun you’d have trying to guess other people’s key mindset.

But it’s the simplicity of KKS that makes it so effective in these situations, because it’s easy to learn and fun to use.

Identifying the key mindset is great, but sometimes that isn’t enough.

That’s when the other two personality types come into play, which we call supporting mindsets.

Through the supporting mindsets, KKS can be used in a more complex way to further develop your understanding of any personality.

Supporting mindsets are the personality types you scored second and third with on our quiz.

It’s through the order and unique blend of these three types that KKS sheds light on the complexity and depth of your personality. The options are ultimately endless!

Instead of understanding a person just by their key mindset, you can try and identify what their supporting mindsets are and when those aspects of their personality tend to emerge.

Different situations tend to bring out different sides of people, all which reveal something unique about who they are.

This will lead to a greater understanding that you might miss by only identifying the key mindset.

Not to mention, your communication with other people will dramatically be enhanced if you can identify what and when their supporting mindsets are used, since you’ll have increased clarity.

For example, try determining whether a knight has a lot of sage or king in them. What types of situations tend to bring out those other sides of their personality?

This greater insight gives you far more information. Try using it after discovering someone’s key mindset to learn more about them.

Knowledge Is Power

Ultimately, understanding is really the key here. It’s through our greater knowledge of ourselves and others that these benefits have such great effects on our lives.

And while there is always more to learn, starting with KKS is a great way to get the ball rolling.

It’s simple, fun, engaging, and will help reveal a lot of information to you in a very short amount of time. Not to mention, the more you use it, the greater the benefits will be.

What more could you ask for?! (Maybe chocolate…)

Oh! One More Thing.

We like to connect with our readers in a more personal way through our email list community.

One of the ways we’ve done this is by playing a KKS game with them!

We asked them to guess which one of us was a Knight, King, and Sage and share any of their favorite characters (real or fictional) that display cool KKS qualities.

Well, the results are in. Enjoy!
