language teacher types

Jim Scrivener, in his excellent book, Learning Teaching, says that there are 3 types of teacher:

Explainer

Involver

Enabler

Which groups would you fit in? Is a “perfect teacher” a perfect (1/3 1/3 1/3) combination of these? If you are an excellent involver and enabler but a terrible explainer can you still be a good teacher? Think of your favourite teachers at school. Which type were they? Please, post your answers here.
