And all these posts today.. are due to a contrast.

February 17, 2010

INTRO:

I THINK THERE IS A HUGE CONTRAST BETWEEN PEOPLE AT A HIGH-ENERGY-STATE AND A LOW-ENERGY-STATE. IT CREATES TWO GROUPS OF PERSONALITIES, AND THERE ARE A HUGE NUMBRE OF PEOPLE WHO LIVE AT ONE POLAR OPPOSITE THEIR WHOLE LIVES. FOR EXAMPLE I THINK ANNIE GREW UP IN A HIGH-ENERGY ENVIRONMENT AND HAS THUS ADOPTED A HIGH-ENERGY-STATE, SOMETHIGN I THINK SHE WILL KEEP FOR A LARGE PART OF HER YOUTH YEARS … AT LEAST.

I don’t think I’ve ever been as high-energy as i am at this current time. It’s a great contrast from my general somewhat passive and medium-relaxed-energy personality.

Not, go out an enjoy but relax. whereas now is go out and enjoy (and im trying to revert back to “relax”).

OLD SELF (MEDIUM/LOW ENERGY) – looks inside himself, rather than out… (Left BRAIN/mind. – Dominant.) (?)

  • Spiritual. Value-oriented.  (NOT focused on Senses. – Considerably numb to external stimulation from enviroment. – Focused on imaginative or emotional stimulation or instead.)
  • Frugal – Spends money on few things, only those that are necessary. Takes no risks with money unless the risk is well understood and has been contemplated. Does not expect the environment or his own circumstances to tell him when he should stop doing things. INSTEAD He RELIES ON HIMSELF, HIS THOUGHTS AND OBSERVATIONS AND VALUEs/PRINCIPLES to tell him when he should stop. Thus he looks inside himself, instead of outside himself.
  • -Also related to risk – relies on reactions within himself to govern his behavior (OPPOSITE TO HIGH ENERGY).
  • Reflective
  • Very observative & contemplative – less talkative and expressive. Less active, involved, and interested in planning events to keep. More interested in just relaxing and taking pleasure of the relaxing moment in his mind.
  • Relaxed
  • Processes things at a slower rate (listening to other people talking, and high energy things. I’m attracted to similar energy, thus to the scenery rather than the city, to… my thoughts rather than what other people are doing.) – Thus this energy-state helped me stay truer to my values because I only listened to my self and had a harder time understanding other people, especially those different from me (who sometimes were on a high-energy level which opposed my current energy-level-state.) [This is also why I obeyed less to my dad’s rules and orders. I was more contemplative and meditative, paying a lot of attention to my thoughts, and much less attention to what “other people wanted me to do”. It’s just irrelevant at such a meditative and contemplative state]
  • Better attention span (has a great toleration for other people, and for very unattracting things, like school and work. Thus I can focus better because I have a better attention span. Doesn’t care much about high energy movies because my attention span can tolerate something more interesting and thought provoking – because PEOPLE AT A LOW ENERGY STATE – can tolerate this.
  • Very in touch with feelings (and as a result, others’ feelings).  More sentimental and empathic and sympathetic and considerably vulnerable/affected by changes in energy in the environment regarding people or anything.. Talks about feelings rather than observations or judgements.
  • Because of listening to others very attentively – as a result Very Sensitive regarding others’ criticism or advice.
  • I’m not exactly sure how this directly relates but : at this state I love listening to Jack Johnson and Incubus. They are relaxing and comforting and thought provoking for me.
  • Not domineering
  • Less judgemental
  • Less opinionated.
  • More open to other people’s opinions.
  • Less time-Conscious and less aware of Appointments, duties, and responsibilities. More idealistic. Less Pragmatic and Realistic. More creative in approach to things and more averse to trampling on other people’s freedoms or disturbing others’ peace of mind on the way.

CURRENT SELF (HIGH ENERGY STATE) –looks outside himself, rather than in… (Left BRAIN/mind. – dominant) (?)

  • Material-oriented (focused on acquiring material possessions). NOT Value-Oriented.   (Focused on Senses. – Likes Mental stimulation – stimulation of senses from environment. Considerably NUMB to imaginative or emotional stimulation.)
  • Spendthrift – Spends money on anything that interests or spices up life. Takes big risks with money and expects the environment or his own circumstances to tell him when he should stop. (THUS – he looks outside himself rather than inside)
  • -Also related to risk – relies on reactions within the environment to govern his behavior (OPPOSITE TO LOW ENERGY).
  • Active
  • Spontaneous
  • Very talkative and expressive – less observative & contemplative. Less Patient. More active, involved, and interested in planning events to keep himself occupied.
  • Processes things at a quicker rate [somewhat impatient when listening to a person talk, sometimes] (Attracted to the city rather than scenery… interested in what other people are doing rather than absorbing himself in his own thoughts.) – Thus this energy-state has helped me learn about other people and how other people like to behave. Also helped me focus on what my dad wants me to do, instead of becoming absorbed in my own thoughts while he’s talking)
  • Less attention span (wants to only focus on things that interest or engage him – not on things that are boring and uninteresting at that moment in time.)
  • Not very in touch with feelings (and as a result, others’ feelings).  More apathetic, indifferent, and less vulnerable/affected by changes in energy in the environment regarding people or anything. Talks about observations or judgements rather than feelings.
  • When listening to others talking, not emotional – not sensitive if criticized or given advice.
  • While I like Jack Johnson and Incubus at low-energy. I don’t like listening to them at high energy states. It’s just not so entertaining or enjoyable for me.
  • More domineering
  • More judgemental
  • More opinionated.
  • Less open to other people’s opinions.
  • More TIME-Conscious and aware of Appointments and Duties&Responsibilities. More Pragmatic and Realistic. Less idealistic.
  • Less creative in approach to things and open to trampling on other people’s freedoms or disturbing others’ peace of mind if it “GETS THE JOB DONE.”

I HOPE THIS PAINTS A CLEAR PORTRAIT BETWEEN TO POLAR OPPOSITE PERSONALITY TYPES (OR MAYBE RATHER.. Dispositions/moods/mental-or-brain states)

BEcause i’ve noticed a clear contrast between the two energy states.!~!
