In the mystical realm of intuitive skills, the Tangent personality style is also known as the Clairtangent. It’s also closely related to the Kinesthetic learning style within the VARK system which stands for Visual, Auditory, Read-Write and Kinesthetic. Most of us have the Tangent ability, but for some it’s more easily accessible.

Illustrations from Shows and Fiction
Popular shows and fiction can help illustrate the differences between the 5 manifestation personality types. For example, the TV show Modern Family pits entirely different characters against each other. And in comedy, the writers make the characters extreme types to enhance the comic effect.
1. Eric Stonestreet’s character, CAMERON, is a typical TANGENT. He played football in school, he’s physically boisterous, big hearted, laid back and enjoys hobbies that are active like clowning.
2. Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s character, MITCHELL. He is a typical ECRIVENT with a high-strung and studious disposition. His nerdy ways and high standards make for great comedy opposite Cameron.
3. Ed O’Neill’s character, JAY, Is a typical VOYENT. He’s a driven perfectionist with a tough disposition, and an eye for aesthetics.
4. Sofia Vergara’s character, GLORIA, is a typical AUDIENT. She’s feisty, passionate, and fun-loving with a loud and expressive voice, which makes for great comedy opposite Jay.
5. Ty Burrell’s character, PHIL, is a typical SENTIENT. He’s extremely compassionate and empathetic and puts others ahead of himself. One of his main goals is to be the best dad ever, and he has a childlike optimism about things.
These manifestation skills are also featured in the novel, Helio Tropez: a visionary fantasy about a subterranean advanced city where inhabitants possess advanced versions of the TEVAS skills. In the novel, the five members of Pentada represent each of the five TEVAS aptitudes. As souls, they safeguard the genetic blueprint of their style.
What is the Tangent Personality Style?
It’s believed that individuals with the Tangent skill can pick up on the energetic imprints left behind on objects or spaces. These imprints are like echoes from the past, carrying information that they can perceive. Just imagine, being able to touch an object and unlock a wealth of information about its history, its previous owners, or the events it has witnessed. This is the essence of clairtangency — a profound connection to the energy imprinted on objects over time. Perhaps you’ve already experienced that phenomenon. You walk into a room and sense a dark energy or a joyful energy or pick up an antique and get an impression of the person who originally owned it. It’s as if the object becomes a portal to another time, allowing the Tangent individual to tap into a reservoir of information beyond the physical realm.
How to Recognize a Tangent
By becoming aware and focusing on their dominant style, individuals can enhance the Tangent skill to manifest personal and collective goals. Here’s how. People often underestimate the powers of imagination and intention, yet they play pivotal roles in bringing ideas into reality. The TEVAS manifestation styles act as artistic tools in the realm of imagination and intention, allowing individuals to name, identify, and embrace their abilities to manifest goals. The Tangent Manifestor, with a preference for physical activity and informal greetings, excels in experiential or kinesthetic learning. Movement is their preferred method of thinking, making them excellent at learning through projects and activities.
Advantages and Disadvantages of the Tangent Personality Style
Advantages of the Tangent’s regular sensory perceptions include being grounded, reliable, and connected to nature. However, extreme types may display physical restlessness, aggression, stubbornness, and uncompromising behavior. By developing their Tangent aptitude into extrasensory perception, known as Clairtangency, individuals can gain information beyond the five senses. Some police departments use Clairtangents as part of detective work. They also have the power of psychometry, whereby they can manipulate objects with their minds, such as the famed spoon-bending trick.
Using Your Tangent Manifestation Style Correctly
Understanding whether your manifestor style is Tangent, Ecrivent, Voyent, Audient, or Sentient empowers you to constructively use your natural inclinations. I had a Tangent coaching client, and she was trying to read books on manifestation, but Tangents learn better through being physically active. When she imagined her ideal outcomes while doing yoga or going on a walk, her results skyrocketed. I worked with another Tangent who tried to enroll coaching clients on phone or video chat and his results were low. Those would work better for an Audient or Voyent. When he led introductory workshops full of active learning, his client roster filled up.
How to Enhance Your Tangent Manifestation Skills
To enhance manifestation, Tangents should imagine physically engaging in their goal, such as walking the beach if a vacation in Hawaii is their goal. If they listen to guided meditations its best to do this while walking, running, doing yoga or other types of movement.
Managing Your Tangent Powers with Wisdom
Individuals with the ability to gain insights through touch or physical contact encounter several challenges in wielding their extrasensory powers:
1. Overwhelm from Sensory Input: The constant flow of information through touch can be overwhelming, making it challenging for Tangents to filter and interpret the significance of each sensation.
2. Difficulty Establishing Boundaries: Without proper control, Tangents may struggle to set boundaries between their personal experiences and the emotions or energies they pick up from others through touch.
3. Interpreting Symbolism: Deciphering the symbolic meaning behind physical sensations requires skill and experience. Misinterpretation can lead to confusion or inaccurate readings.
4. Skepticism and Misunderstanding: They might meet with skepticism from others, making it challenging for individuals to share their experiences without fear of judgment or disbelief.
5. Lack of Control: Tangents may struggle with controlling when and how their abilities manifest, leading to unexpected experiences in various situations.
6. Integration into Daily Life: Incorporating Tangent extra sensory skills into everyday activities can be tricky, as the constant barrage of physical feelings may distract from mundane tasks or interactions.
To overcome these challenges, Tangents often benefit from guidance, support, and training to refine and control their extrasensory abilities effectively.
For example, I had a client who could sometimes ‘feel’ events before they happened, like knowing a storm was coming when the sun was shining, or touching her mother’s hand and knowing her cancer was gone before the test proved her right. Sometimes others would get spooked by her abilities, so she kept her insights hidden. Now, she’s more comfortable with her gift and shares information when appropriate.
Another client, named Annie, received a silver pendant from her friend, Joan. It was a piece she inherited from her mother who’d recently passed way. The next time they met, Annie wore the pendant. Joan joked that she was a disappointment to her mother because she hadn’t married or had children. That’s when Annie had an overwhelming urge to blurt out “That simply isn’t true!” They were both shocked because how could Annie know either way?
That was until she realized that the pendant was helping her access a message from Joan’s mother. In the past, Annie would have been embarrassed or uncomfortable sharing that knowledge, but since learning how to manage her Tangent power, she asked if Joan wanted to hear more. When she received a YES, Annie continued sharing. Years later, Joan still talks about how healing it was to receive those loving sentiments that her mother didn’t have the courage or insight to share when she was alive.
It’s also important to identify the source of these Tangent extrasensory feelings. I had another Tangent client who used to buy clothes from a second-hand shop. When she wore a lightweight suede coat, she often experienced feelings of heaviness and burden. It was odd because when she took the coat off, she felt fine. When she wore a heavier coat, she felt fine. Once she learned about her Tangent nature, and that she was picking up something from the coat, she stopped wearing it and never bought second-hand after that.
Learning to use your Tangent abilities appropriately can help you navigate life’s challenges with greater wisdom.
