Personality Scales, Part One

Giving a reliable feedback to a client about his or her "state of affairs" i.e. level and efficiency of distribution of energy, psychological growth, health and many other issues is a big part of my work. I can do it either in an idiosyncratic, free visionary way or in a more nomothetic, systematic way that allows accurate depicting of changes in time or comparing among people. Using scales definitely belongs to the second type of approach.

There are many scales that psychology uses to describe a personality some of them are relevant for my purposes, and there are some very specific scales one tends to use in psychic description of an individual. Sorting out what scales to choose is a task number one. After some time of using a scale I seem to be intuitively able to tell whether to keep it as a valuable tool or drop it, whether the scale really contributes to a full and expressive description of an individual.

Some scales seem to be relevant for description of people in general, other scales seem to be useful for description of just some individuals while they don't fit for somebody else, plus the selection of scales may change in time as the personality develops.

I give regular feedback to all my long term clients along chosen scales and we try to figure out what to do in order to keep the organism and its performance in the best possible shape and level regarding his or her goals.

I want to start giving you the examples of scales and their description and interpretation of the scores.

Scores originally mostly expressed a position of an individual on a scale of 0 to 100% where we can find the scores of most individuals... but later I realized in case of some human qualities I wasn't able to find virtually any limits to growth. With a proper training and support the clients scored higher and higher as if "everything was possible"... so in some cases it seems more practical to see the number not as percents but rather as "units" or stop thinking about the numbers at all and just interpret the scores verbally as "very high".

Let's go to concrete examples:

GENERAL ENERGY LEVEL

I think this is one of the most generally used scales in psychic practice. It expresses how much "vital" energy, one has... and I don't think there is any good definition of what exactly the energy is, though there is quite good general agreement and people refer to "energy" in every-day's language as: "to be full of energy", "to be low on energy", "to use one's energy" " one's energy is depleted or exhausted", even "energetic drink" etc.

I try to support and coach my client's to keep their energy high enough or rather high... considering his/her capacity to contain it and use it in an effective way, prevent leaking it in a random way.

In my experience nearly 100% people live on a energy level of 100% 50%.

I realized it doesn't take much effort to raise this level i.e. to teach a person to contain and use much more energy... actually without any limit that I have yet clearly identify. What it takes is to know that it is possible to have a lot of energy, learn how to get it and have a psychic feedback in order to get aware of the difference between high and lower level of energy and to keep and distribute it most efficiently in relationship to one's goals.

People I have worked with get on an energy level of about 1 million % (and here as you see it feels strange to use %) on average in 3 months but they don't have enough experience and auto-feedback to be able to keep it in a long term. So it happens that they overwork, suppress some psychological conflict, get into some stressful situation that drains them without realizing it and their energy level drops very fast to where it was in the beginning. It is not a big deal, actually one can learn a good lesson from such case and start experimenting with the level of energy again.

As far as I noticed people are able to keep high energy level quite reliably after about 2 years of a coaching/training process... which, of course, doesn't deal with the GENERAL ENERGY LEVEL only. Rather the high GENERAL ENERGY LEVEL seems to be an outcome of a complex psychological and psychic work... and a fairly indicator of how successful this work has been.

After about 2 to 4 years of working together with a psychic-psychological coach a client gets to a relatively stabilized high level of energy of about 100 million %. What is that good for? First of all it indicates this person' organism is generally in a very good shape. Secondly it tells us this person can perform extremely highly and be extremely successful in what he or she wants and decides to achieve. We can also be pretty sure this person is generally rather a happy one... unhappy person wouldn't have energy on such a high level so this person had have to go through a serious psychological and psychic training first in order to get where she or he is. Very typically this person's need of self-realization, self-expression is saturated to a high degree. This person has worked hard and efficiently on reducing one's inner conflicts rather than suppressing them, this person has worked actively on his/her psychological growth and it makes her/him a good communicator and partner in both business and private relationships and last but not least this person relies very strongly on his/her personal experience and uses her/his coach rather on a peer level than as an authority.

Now, really, this sounds too good to be true... how do you get there so fast? Taking a look at a couple of other scales may shed some light on this process.

DISTRIBUTION OF ENERGY

This scales is not an open ended one. If everything is perfectly all right and energy is optimally distributed we get 100% for DISTRIBUTION OF ENERGY.

In my experience most people are far from that. My estimate is that 95% of people get 1 to 5% in how well their energy is distributed... which would mean it is distributed very poorly. Incredibly so. The waste of energy that I generally experience around me appears simply brutal... but it can be improved fairly fast too, I believe.

It seems many of people prioritize wrongly (that's surely why prioritizing is such an important subject in learning managerial skills): many people do things that don't have to be done or don't have to be done to the extent they do them, people get enslaved and used by a lot of inner and outer powers/imperatives or let's say by wrong inner programing that is put into them mostly in childhood. Some hard workers' efforts go in wrong direction and they may struggle hard for decades on self-sabotage without having a clue.

As a psychic consultant I can more "legitimately" than a psychological counselor use my clairvoyance and go right to what I strongly perceive as the core of a problem without "shyly" wasting time. I have to and I do respect client's experience, resistance, defenses, need to go safely not to fast, need to communicate of what is happening subjectively but we agree on clairvoyance as an important tool and so I dare to see, dowse and suggest ways and solutions much more directly than I would in a purely psychological session.

The scale DISTRIBUTION OF ENERGY is of course closely connected with the scale of GENERAL ENERGY LEVEL. If the DISTRIBUTION OF ENERGY is right, the GENERAL ENERGY LEVEL grows fast. If the DISTRIBUTION OF ENERGY is wrong for a longer period of time the GENERAL ENERGY LEVEL just can't keep high either.

What is the most frequent cause of poor distribution of energy... and low energy level?...

INNER PREPARATION,

or rather lack of it. What, the heck, is the INNER PREPARATION? It is - formally - another open ended scale... so it can reach pretty far and high. Though most people score very very low - my assessment is 90% of people score under 5%.

This seems to be one of the strongest tools for boosting one's performance and one's success.

So again, what is it? The INNER PREPARATION means that before we work on some project out there in the world, before we take on what I call OUTER ACTION, we need to think about it, wish it, imagine it, long for it, deal with our inner doubts about it, inner fears, voices of our inner enemy. We have to sit with it, feel it, enjoy the pictures of our future, of how the things will work, what they will bring to us, how they will change our life. We have to embrace our doubts of ourselves and our abilities, fears of the world and how harsh it is. We have to deal with our fear of being foolish and succumbing to illusions... and loosing it all. We have to deal with our strength, hope, realism, tolerance to success/ceiling of success...

We need to give enough time to our thinking, feeling, intuition, imagination... not only before we start our project, but on and on as we proceed.

As a psychic I believe I can measure/dowse quite precisely how much of INNER PREPARATION has to be done and has been done, how effectively a client does it, what has to be changed in it so it is effective enough and whatever else concerns success of using the INNER PREPARATION.

The INNER PREPARATION is basically a technique that is not terribly difficult to learn, there is nothing mystical or magical about it... though, who knows, as it definitely works miracles. It is more or less sitting down, letting/inviting into one's mind practically whatever "wants" to enter, registering conflict some of these contents stir and being as aware as possible, without interfering, of what letting these contents into mind does with one's body, which means being aware of emotions that accompany the contents of the mind. On a second thought... this technique is a bit complex but so far everybody I worked with was able to grasp and practice it pretty successfully.

Doing enough of INNER PREPARATION is another question - basically a question of decision and sticking with it. But with a proper feedback and being repeatedly reminded of the connection of the INNER PREPARATION and one's personal goal and success which I provide as an inevitable part of my coaching it seems to be rather difficult to forget completely.
