Top Five Summaries:


INTELLECTION

PEOPLE EXCEPTIONALLY TALENTED IN THE INTELLECTION THEME ARE CHARACTERIZED BY THEIR INTELLECTUAL ACTIVITY. THEY ARE INTROSPECTIVE AND APPRECIATE INTELLECTUAL DISCUSSIONS.

People with strong Intellection talents like to think. They like mental activity. They like to exercise the “muscles” of their brain, stretching them in multiple directions.People with strong Intellection talents are introspective. This introspection gives them time to reflect and ponder. Wherever it leads them, their mental hum is a constant in their lives.

Suggestion: Write and Journal, take time alone to think and process.



LEARNER

PEOPLE EXCEPTIONALLY TALENTED IN THE LEARNER THEME HAVE A GREAT DESIRE TO LEARN AND WANT TO CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVE. THE PROCESS OF LEARNING, RATHER THAN THE OUTCOME, EXCITES THEM.

People with strong Learner talents constantly strive to learn and improve. The process of learning is as important to them as the knowledge they gain. Learners are energized by the steady and deliberate journey from ignorance to competence. They are excited by the thrill of learning new facts, beginning a new subject, and mastering an important skill. Learning builds their confidence.

Suggestion: Be an early adopter of new technologies, and seldom used systems. Be a catalyst for change.


IDEATION


PEOPLE EXCEPTIONALLY TALENTED IN THE IDEATION THEME ARE FASCINATED BY IDEAS. THEY ARE ABLE TO FIND CONNECTIONS BETWEEN SEEMINGLY DISPARATE PHENOMENA.

People with strong Ideation talents are creative and appreciate originality. They relish free-thinking experiences such as brainstorming and discussion groups. They have a natural capacity to consider issues from multiple perspectives. They revel in taking the world we all know and turning it around so people can view it from a strangely enlightening angle. They think outside the box. They are fascinated by new ideas and concepts, which come to them easily. They love ideas because they can be profound, they can be novel, they can be clarifying, they can be contrary, and they can be bizarre. For all these reasons they derive a jolt of energy whenever a new idea occurs to them.

Suggestion: Take time to think through ideas before communicating them, others will not be able to connect the dots you have connected. Also, you get bored easy, play mental games with the world around you (silently so you don't disturb others). Write and Journal your ideas.


ACHIEVER


PEOPLE EXCEPTIONALLY TALENTED IN THE ACHIEVER THEME WORK HARD AND POSSESS A GREAT DEAL OF STAMINA. THEY TAKE IMMENSE SATISFACTION IN BEING BUSY AND PRODUCTIVE.

Achievers have a constant need for attainment. They have an internal fire burning inside them. It pushes them to do more, to achieve more. People with strong Achiever talents feel as if every day starts at zero. By the end of the day they must accomplish something meaningful to feel good about themselves. And “every day” means every single day — workdays, weekends, holidays, and even vacations. If the day passes without some form of achievement, no matter how small, Achievers feel dissatisfied. Upon finishing a challenging project, they rarely seek to be rewarded with a rest or an easy assignment. While they appreciate recognition for past achievements, their motivation lies in striving toward the next goal on the horizon.

Suggestion: Take breaks, limit your commitments to reasonable goals, preferably a few important tasks, rather than many less important ones. Try setting goals within the home and non-work environments, it will help you engage in these aspects of your life, and feel more satisfaction from participating in them.



INPUT


PEOPLE EXCEPTIONALLY TALENTED IN THE INPUT THEME HAVE A CRAVING TO KNOW MORE. OFTEN THEY LIKE TO COLLECT AND ARCHIVE ALL KINDS OF INFORMATION.

People with strong Input talents are inquisitive. They always want to know more. They crave information. They like to collect certain things, such as ideas, books, memorabilia, quotations, or facts. Whatever they collect, they do it because it interests them. They find many things interesting and have a natural curiosity. The world is exciting precisely because of its infinite variety and complexity. A few minutes of surfing the Internet may turn into hours once their curiosity takes off. They constantly acquire, compile, and file things away. Their pursuits keep their minds fresh. And they know that one day some of the information or things they have gathered will prove valuable.

Suggestion: Embrace this aspect of your personality by reading, even things like the dictionary, thesaurus, and encyclopedia (or Wikipedia). Devise systems for storing and accessing this knowledge Accept that you will never feel as though you know enough.

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…

FICO

$ 14  FICO
W hat is a FICO score? Many people want to know what a FICO score is. FICO stands for the Fair Isaac Corporation, founded in 1956 and in 2009 renamed: FICO. This is the one company that has more control over your interest rates and loan approvals than any other. They review your credit reports and create a score based on the information found there.
            The formula that determines that score is TOP SECRET. The banks don't even know it. We do know a few things about the score though.  The Credit Scores can vary from 300 to 850, recently information has come out that it may go into the 900's now. A “Good Score” is hard to determine because different lenders have different cut off marks. According to Wikipedia the average marker in the USA is about 640.[1]This score is about the breaking point between bad and good. Typically, though, banks are looking for scores in the 700’s
~DSR or DTI~             The better your score the better the interest rate and the higher th…

Expectations Are Premeditated Disappointments

As my psychologist dad says, and I paraphrase...

Expectations Are Premeditated Disappointments
and...

Plan Plans Not Outcomes
I have had in my mind and heart a "way it's supposed to go/be", all my life.

So far almost exactly NOTHING has every gone the way it was supposed to go, or been the way it was supposed to be.

As it turns out, I'm a lousy planner of outcomes.

I'm an idealist, who can tell you what the right principles are, but specific outcomes are only within God's hands, not man's.

Maybe I do need to die after all... die to self.

Maybe I need to die to...

"I want""I need""I desire"... and just, simply, follow His lead.

But if I do that, if I follow His lead, that will lead me down paths I don't want to go, into situations I don't want to be in... that will take me to a prison after being beaten (Paul & Silas), it will get me thrown into a Lion's den (Daniel)... Sure, they overcame those situations, but not withou…
