Part 3 - The Types

Let me start off by reminding you that an individual is a complex structure, a combination of intellects, which means a combination of desires and ambitions, conflicts and emotions, movements and apathies. We are similar at times in our inborn tendencies, we are different in our development and in tiny little nuances of these cross configurations of our intellectual properties. 

Yet, here, we will take a look at the properties of each individual intellect. Since in the beginning of time each one played a specific role that guaranteed the survival of the tribe, we are going to look at these roles and examine our pre-destined archetypes.

Part 2 - The Intellects

When we are examining the world we have to look at it as a whole and then take it apart. In our approach, we take it apart into 8 parts, or 8 intellects. 

An intellect is comprised of a set of unique personality traits, life values, specific behavioral tendencies as well as linguistic tendencies, certain physical features, particular leadership style, and many other nuances that make an individual different from others. It is almost as if we are born with a certain set of programs and it is up to us, and the environment we are in, to develop these given to us by nature qualities. 

Each one of us is born with 3, 4, 5, 6 intellects, and the combination of these intellects at times creates internal conflicts or is complemental to one another. Moreover, two individuals can be born with the exact same combination, but look, act and think differently, due to a different developmental opportunity during their early age. But regardless of how the intellect has developed, you will subconsciously recognize who is made of the same "material" as you are. 

The Basics

Everything we experience and understand about the world, we do by processing information through the qualities (intellects) that we have. Therefore,

Self-discovery is a complicated topic. While much has been written on this, little is available at this point on what are the processes involved and how one commences on the road to self-discovery. 

There is a big potential in each one of us, but it remains latent in many of us. Becoming the person that you want to be, requires that you do the inner work and self-identification. Self-understanding also provides a sound basis for understanding other people. 

Most of us have had an opportunity to undergo a variety of psychological tests to determine our personality type. Yet, most of us don't feel we ever find our path, or fully understand our true authentic potential. Self-awareness is key to being fulfilled, accomplished and a happier person. 

Tests are great, Yes, we agree, but in the US alone, there are about 2,500 personality tests on the market. We all have done it, whether our manager and colleagues recommended it, or as part of our MBA program, or just as a fun exercise in the middle of the night. 

Regardless of what the test is, the main question remains - what do you do with this information?

Knowledge, understanding, and execution are the key. Knowing who you are and knowing what you were born to do and understanding your talents is only half the battle. Knowing how to apply this knowledge in business and in your personal life makes you extremely powerful. 

Plus, any psychological test is measuring your state of being and the side of the personality that you are experiencing at the moment you take it, and given that a human being is multidimensional it is only a slice of yourself that you are measuring.
