IHS 25 – The historians

There are some people for whom history is important. It is something that they think about and something that helps them understand who they are. This may not mean that they want to study the First World War or the history of the Incas, but they appreciate past people and what they have done is what is seen as important.

The historians will help people understand, from an historical perspective, why things are done the way they are. Sometimes there are good reasons why things are done the way they are. Sometimes there aren’t. The historians will want to know the history behind why things are done the way they are, and when they know, they will bring that knowledge to others. This can be very useful when implanting change.

Historians will often value memorabilia. A very good present for an historian is some very personal memorabilia which celebrates an event or milestone.

When people don’t understand this talent, it can come across like the historian is stuck in the past. That isn’t always true. They want to know the past in order to understand its relevance for now.

They can get frustrated when the past is ignored or not valued. For example, if a significant person in the history of a ministry is treated poorly, or ignore, that might upset or frustrated the historian.
