Wonderful question. I think Susan Perry's editorial on this in a recent, past ATM edition addressed this very well. Perry-san noted that Aikido can and often does have transformative powers, but that an individual polished by the practice of Aikido can be - how can I put it? - personally flawed, despite the exquisiteness of their "technique." As a mentor of mine once said, the map is not the territory.
