In the process of self discovery...MAPP - Motivational Appraisal of Personal Potential.

Career MAPP - Summary of what stood out to me most.


My mind is a world of ideas; where each idea triggers other ideas. As an author by nature, creative writer by preference; I enjoy exploring abstract and theoretical concepts and idea, as I seek to alleviate the pain points of the disenfranchised, providing them the concepts they need to grow and gain traction in their walk with God. I see the universe as a giant puzzle. Each fact found, each piece of information,  interesting on it's own, but fascinating as it relates to the whole.



Expounded - Summary

Motivational Appraisal of Personal Potential


I am an Author, with a strong preference for language and writing, especially creative writing. Ideas trigger more ideas.Influential communication of ideas is a primary way of achieving the self-accepted calling to the cause of good, growth, and gain in the lives of others. I especially regard current pain, hurts, needs, and problems in the lives of those who are disenfranchised. Those closest to me will often be expected to be contributors with me to the benevolence, and not be direct objects of it. Darrell feels both privilege and responsibility to use communication (including persuasion) to voluntarily provide beneficial information to others.

Math, science and philosophy will have their strongest emphasis for me in the area of abstract concepts, and theoretical applications. I have a strong preference for ideas, concepts, aesthetics, and meaning. I am the artist who stands below his work, as spectator with the rest upon it's completion. I am merely the tool, not the craftsman. I tend toward Syntheses: putting two or more things together to form a whole; the combination of separate elements of thought into a whole; the operation by which divided parts are united (Webster). I am motivated by seeing the big picture so much so that I attempt to see all parts of the picture in that larger context, then see all parts relative to each other, but still within that larger context of the whole. 


Career MAPP - Test Results


Interest in Job (Tasks you want to preform)

Darrell is conscious of existence, meaning, purpose, potential and destiny of humankind, people, and self. Darrell is motivated by a self-felt, self-accepted calling to the cause of good, growth, and gain in the lives of others. Influential communication of ideas is a primary way of achieving those objectives. Perception and thinking tend to be holistic and conceptual; i.e., seeing the big picture. It is important to see which of the other traits are interactive with this trait because there can be many interesting combinations. This is a major trait in cultural, intellectual, academic, and creative activities. It includes ideas, concepts, theory, ethics, and values.


Temperament for Job (Preferences)


Darrell is most likely benevolent, voluntarily giving of self to help others, especially regarding current pain, hurts, stress, needs, and problems. This means empathetic, sympathetic, intentional, personal involvement in the personal lives of others to give help, sacrificially if necessary, and to subjectively gain personal satisfaction from providing personal service. (NOTE: emphasis is on the word "personal." This is a heart trait and is totally self-motivated and voluntary. It is one of the most strongly motivated traits in determining vocational dedication. The word "others" is important in the context of benevolence) Darrell is probably more benevolent toward persons not intimately, formally, or organizationally related. (NOTE: Benevolence expects those in close relationships to join in the giving rather than being a priority recipient.) Nonetheless, Darrell probably exhibits benevolence toward all persons. But benevolence does have priorities about eligibility of persons for help.


Aptitude for the Job (Expression in performance)

Darrell's preferences, more often than not, are motivated by such things as sensing and seeing aesthetics, essence, philosophical and psychological meaning, and effect of color. Darrell probably doesn't consider the saying, "Beauty is more than skin deep" as a cliche. Further, Darrell considers pattern, texture, and spatial measure: size, shape, distance, dimension, perspective, relationship, etc. with the same regard. This includes abstract dimensions and patterns, graphics, layouts, etc. (NOTE: That higher artistic sense is the source of abstract art, animated films, computer graphics, fractal geometry, new clothing designs and styles, modern architecture, etc.) Darrell would probably make a permanent mental note of the quote from Carl Jung, "The artist is essentially the instrument, and he stands below his work, for which reason we should never expect from him an interpretation of his own work. He achieved his highest with his composition."


People (Relational Preferences)


Darrell feels both privilege and responsibility to use communication (including persuasion) to voluntarily provide beneficial information to others. This includes strongly motivated benevolent and literary traits. Self-satisfaction comes almost exclusively from the subjective realization that the information, voluntarily given, has been helpful to other persons. Darrell is further motivated to learn and understand the other person(s) needs wishes and listening preferences. Non-persuasive service communication can become persuasive and persistent when expressed in the interest of someone needing Darrell to stand up for them.


Things (Relate to Things)

Given the option to participate where an aptitude for manual labor or basic labor activities is required Darrell's preferences for participation is moderate. This type of activity involves easily used craft tools, repetitious activity, recognizable detail, outdoor physical exposure, and minor problem solving. It is most often a helper position that can be handled with minimum skill, training, instruction, or supervision. Please note the word "aptitude" which means ability to do something, with no mention or inference about whether the person wants to do it or gains satisfaction from it. It is, therefore, necessary to see other traits to determine if Darrell has supportive motivational levels for such work to be satisfying on a steady basis.



Data (Relate to Data)

"Synthesize: putting two or more things together to form a whole; the combination of separate elements of thought into a whole; the operation by which divided parts are united" (Webster). Darrell is motivated by seeing the big picture so much so that (s)he, attempts to see all parts of the picture in that larger context, then sees all parts relative to each other, but still within that larger context. Perception and thinking are therefore holistic and conceptual. Philosophical and intuitive processes are involved. Scientific, managerial, and/or literary preferences may also be involved. Other mental factors in this section are subordinate, secondary, or complementary to this primary motivational attribute. This is an overview and scanning activity that includes ideas, concepts, theory, fiction, hypothesis and assessment. (Note that words in the last sentence are unrelated to logic that Webster defines as "the science of the operations of the understanding subservient to the estimation of evidence.") For Darrell, preferences for this sort of synthesis will allow it to get no further toward logic than estimating.

Reasoning (Relate to Reasoning)

Darrell is strongly motivated to apply thinking to the big picture through holistic ideas, concepts, options, and strategies. This does not mean, suggest, or imply that thinking is kept only in a holistic context but it does mean that the first and constant priority or preference for consideration and focus are on the big picture. (Example: Darrell more likely prefers to be an executive rather than a manager, and more inclined to be a manager rather than a supervisor.) Considering how pieces of the picture are brought in to the big picture stimulates motivation for the activity.

Mathematics (Relate to Math Concepts)


Darrell prefers to consider math extending more toward theory, abstract concepts, experimental applications, etc. Because of the moderate motivational level for this theoretical activity, it is not likely that it would be satisfying as a primary vocation or have too heavy an emphasis. However, it remains a valuable asset that extends normal capability beyond usual activities.

Language (Relate to language and word concepts)


Darrell is highly motivated to consider creative writing and communicating at professional levels. Preferences are holistic, conceptual, imaginative, and creative. "Ideas trigger more ideas" can probably be said about Darrell. High motivational levels for this worker trait indicate an interactive combination of literary and philosophical traits. As Dean W. R. Inge said, "Literature flourishes best when it is half a trade and half an art." That probably makes a great deal of sense to Darrell. Motivation at this level indicate preferences that probably include writing fiction, poetry, scripts for movies or television, advertising copy, marketing copy, teaching creative writing, etc.

No Hiding... My Story

Why am I writing my story? So... here's the thing. The Pure Desire, Seven Pillars workbook asks me to write an addiction story. When I was __ this happened. Then this happened. Timeline style.

The workbook and videos also break down the limbic system, and how desires, fears, and auto-responses were mostly created early, before 6 years old, give or take.

I've been thinking about my history and timeline for years, wondering why I am the way I am. So this sounds like promising homework. I started in on paper, but the deep level I want to travel will take more space. I plan to outline every relevant (or possibly relevant) moment.

Also, I'm inspired to start again because of a KPBS special "Meet the Patels", in which Ravi Patel (as shown through the lens of his sister's (Geeta Patel's - Film Maker) camera. It's a long story, worth seeing. It showed the struggles of American dating vs the arranged or partially-arranged type marriage systems their culture us…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Short Story: The Treasure Room

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:21
It's true, where you spend your money is an indication of what you value. This is why Tithe (money) is the number one indicator of whether you Trust God (heart issue).

What if we turned this verse around for a moment? What if we imagined that the treasure is your heart?

For where your heart is, there will be your deepest treasures.We then come to realize that the human heart is the real treasure. It's not our money or belongings that matter in life, but the hearts we touch along the way.

As I pondered that this morning, I imagined the following story. I hope you enjoy and take something away for yourself today.

The house did not get many visitors, because Bob was a sheltered man. He lived far away, in the mountains. When he des…
