The Arbitrator is the ninth path of the Ennealogy archetypes. It was given its name because of its mastery of mediation and its commitment to protect order and balance. Sharing many characteristics with Mars, The Arbitrator has a strong sense of purpose and duty. The Arbitrator is a protector of peace and utilizes all its abilities to create harmony in their environment. The Arbitrator doesn’t like disputes to linger and wants to address them as soon as they surface. They are alert and have a strong internal defense system, always ready to respond to opposition (even though they would prefer to avoid conflict altogether). Although it is expected that the Mars influence will dominate the Arbitrator’s outward personality, they are actually introverted, relaxed, and modest. It is important to keep in mind that as the ninth path, The Arbitrator has the most variety in characteristics, as this archetype carries attributes of the other eight archetypes, which makes them more relatable, more reflective, and most effective in mediating conflicts and preserving peace.
