The Maverick is the fourth path of the Ennealogy archetypes. It was given its name because of its unapologetic desire to express its individuality— even if it upsets the status quo. Sharing many characteristics with the Rahu (the north node of the moon), The Maverick is very sensitive, patient, trustworthy and has the ability to innerstand the unseen sides of truth. They are hard workers with brilliant ideas because of their unconventional thinking. The Maverick is one of the most persistent of the paths because of their familiarity with the many unexpected changes that seem to follow them in their lives.

The Maverick is a creative and sensitive extremist who would prefer to be alone than to be misunderstood.
