For instance, the individual may be from a background of clerics, where the world is viewed in terms of religious considerations such as God is the measure of all things. The individual may want to change this pattern and evaluate things in terms money or love. Instead of evaluating in terms of God, one may watch the way one thinks, look for instances of this pattern, and attempt to make the appropriate changes as described earlier. The concept of the Watcher is the conception of alternative personalities and traits. But the individual will possess the propensity to watch oneself from the perspective in which one is most familiar. The individual may be limited by the consciousness, awareness and knowledge of other kinds of personality and character traits, other than one's own. One can only model the choice for self-evaluation upon character traits that one is familiar with. The Watcher may then be limited in what can be observed and the assessments that can be made, by the limitations of the individual's consciousness of varying perspectives and personalities. Thus the individual's ability of self-evaluation is restricted to the ability to understand the perspectives of others, as how they would view reality in general, think, act and behave in varying circumstances.

To overcome this, another aspect to the concept of the Watcher is the symbolic creation of Watcher identities that are characters synthesized into elemental roles, that are perhaps more relavant to Transcendental Analysis. These roles are such things as the king and queen, cleric, soldier, lawyer, doctor, revolutionary, mystic, inventor, artist, merchant , spy or beggar. Each of these roles contain a different perspective in which the individual operates and regards the world of reality. Decisions are made based upon the dynamics of the function, that these perspectives and personalities as they are perceived, would be used to operate in the world. The individual can play these roles symbolically or can surreptitiously place others in these roles, in order to observe oneself in the context of interaction with others of varying perspectives.
