In that the individualist attempts and in many cases succeeds in promulgating one's own sense of self-worth, using the collectivist as nothing more than a host or a receptacle, he, or she, has little respect, or regard, for the collectivist. In other words, the individualist appreciates the collectivist in as much as he, or she, can manipulate or use the collectivist for one's self-interests.

Being collectivists are merely seen as hosts for individualists, individualism is parasitic, by nature. In the case of noteworthy figures, founders of religions, or tyrannical rulers, collectives are seen as chalices which contain the life giving forces of charismatic leaders. For instance, the Christian serves no other purpose than to facilitate the spirit of Christ. If the Christian puts his, or her, desires above the desires of Christ, he, or she, is not deemed Christlike and is living out of compliance with Christianity. Therefore, the well-defined individual, or personality, is Christ and the Christian is his host.

Being an individualist or a collectivist is not a good or evil thing. Individualism and collectivism can be used for both good and evil. It all depends on the intentions of the Individualist. If the individualist is merely selfish for materialism, meaning his, or her, desires are defined by physicalism, they don't transcend the individual, the individual's greed may be seen as evil and oppressive. However, if the individualist is selfish not only for oneself but also the collective, meaning he, or she, finds value in the group, then, the Individualist will meet the needs of the collective, prolonging its survival.

If the individualist finds value in the group, it is determined, or defined, as an impregnated value, the collective being impregnated by the Individualist; in other words, value to the individualist is seen as the progeny of one's self.

It is the individual that chooses and gives value to the collective. The collectivist is a simple slave-sheep outside of that criteria.

The Individualist is a unifying factor for the group. In other words, he, or she, defines the collective. The collective does not exist apart from the leadership of the Individualist; therefore, well-defined leadership, or headship, goes to social cohesion.

However, the collective, even though consisting, by very nature, of collectivists, each of its member is, in fact, an individual.

The distinguishing factor is the individualist finds more worth, or significance, in oneself than he, or she, does the group and the collectivist finds more value, or meaning, in the group than in oneself.

We are all individualists and collectivists, by degree. The collectivist is attracted to one who is more of an individualist than one's self. In other words, the individualist embodies meaning and self-worth which attracts the collectivist, relatively speaking.

However, the personality of one individualist may fade in comparison to the personality of someone with greater charisma. Being an individualist does not guarantee magnetism; magnetism is the byproduct of a charismatic leader.
