I'm done here. I want to read about the temperaments,
or, I want to learn more about how health impacts how we express our worldviews!
Our worldview represents a set of instincts and emotions that guide our behavior and our actions. They also represent how we see the world and how we encode and associate on information. They guide our behavior and provide information and rewards depending on how we behave, and they determine our needs. When we fail to acquire our needs, our health drops, and we become less healthy in how we express our worldviews. Our dominant and stable worldview only refers to our explicit, aware needs, we pursue these needs consciously and with focus. The other needs can still be important to some degree. Our dominant and hyperactive worldview represents needs and emotions that motivate and excite us, causing us to feel energized.
The Empathic worldview
Abstract and organic types
The Empathic worldview causes us to become aware of meanings and implications in complex experiences. Empaths understand social action through analogies, metaphors and concepts. They seek to understand what motivates and drives the people around them, and they can use this information to influence and motivate others. This can be used both to help people understand difficult life experiences, as well as more negatively, to control and manipulate others. Empaths are experience-driven, and tend to pursue social rewards over money and status. Empaths are drawn to the unfamiliar and complex, and are quick to dispose of old knowledge, preferring to come up with new strategies and new ways to act. Empaths tend to think existentially about the experiences they have, often seeing value and hidden motives in everything that happens to them. Empaths seek to transcend old social stereotypes and their social history to find new ways of self-expression. Because they are often unaware of rules, instructions and hierarchies they tend to be less incentivized to follow laws and instructions. Empaths equally struggle with repetition and follow-through. This is because they are instinctually driven to change, to study patterns, and to act curiously, and emotionally driven to connect, to impact the community, and to have good, pleasant experiences. They can also more negatively experience fear, which grounds their curiosity, and shame and disgust, which impacts their ability to relate and enjoy life.
The Social Worldview
The Social worldview causes us to become aware of meanings, motives and reasons for our history and our character. Social types understand social actions by their character, their environment or their history. Social types can use this social competence to build trust with the people in their community. Social types are experience driven, and tend to know how to behave in order to gain social rewards from their environment. Social types are drawn to the familiar and the known, and prefer to use old knowledge and old experiences to guide their behavior. Social types seek to build a place for themselves in the community, as well as to live up to social expectations. Social types tend to think experientially about the experiences they have, what it looked like, how it felt, categorizing and memorizing it. Because they are often unaware of rules, instructions and hierarchies, they tend to be less incentivized to follow laws and instructions. Social types tend to struggle with escaping old social patterns and feedback spirals. This is because they are instinctually driven to maintain, to restore, and to use old knowledge wisely, causing them to be somewhat nostalgic people. Social types are emotionally driven to connect, to impact the community, and to have good, pleasant experiences. They can also more negatively experience anger, when things don’t work as anticipated, or when people fail at something simple. Besides this, social types can struggle with shame and disgust, which negatively impacts their ability to connect and relate to the world.
The Intellectual Worldview
The Intellectual worldview causes us to become aware of systems, laws, and formal means of controlling the environment. Intellectuals understand actions and events by how they work and what their functions are. They seek to understand how to develop objects, tools, and strategies to improve their environment or current life situation. Intellectuals are task-driven, and tend to pursue money, status, or some kind of challenging profession. Intellectuals are drawn to the unfamiliar and complex, and are quick to dispose of old knowledge, preferring to come up with new strategies and new ways to act. Intellectuals understand how power affects people and our behavior. Intellectuals see the world as a board game with moves and rules that make our behavior more rational. Intellectuals tend to think a lot about where their tasks will lead them, and what they are capable of. Intellectuals often question power and hierarchies to come up with own ideals for how society’s power should be distributed. They coach and help people find strategies to reach success. They start projects and come up with new strategies. Intellectuals tend to struggle with repetition and follow-through and find stability boring. Intellectuals are instinctually driven to change, to study patterns, and to act curiously. They are also emotionally driven to improve, to be successful, and to complete tasks. More negatively, their instincts may present as fear, which grounds their curiosity, and anxiety, which makes them worry about their performance or if they are powerful enough.
The Practical Worldview
The Practical worldview causes us to become aware of systems, laws, and formal means of controlling the environment. Practical types understand actions and events by how they work and what their functions are. They seek to understand how to maintain objects, tools, and how to follow-through accurately on the tasks they have. Practical types are task-driven, and tend to pursue money, status, or some kind of profession or line of work. Practical types are drawn to the familiar and to the known, and prefer to utilize old knowledge accurately in the present situation, than to experiment with new methods. They seek to build a place in society, a house, a family, and security to make them feel safe. Practical types understand how power affects people and how formal rules and constraints control our behavior and carefully study the power and rules that guide their environment. They help or find ways to make sure people live up to rules or laws. Practical types are traditional and nostalgic and move with a sense of rhythm. They coach and instruct people on how to complete various tasks and how to use various tools. Practical types are instinctually driven to repeat, restore, and maintain stability, and become angry when stability is threathened somehow. Practical types are emotionally driven to improve, to work hard, and to be powerful, causing them to sometimes become anxious if they fail at these tasks.
