Personal Styles, also known as Personality Styles or Personality Types, develop as six types of behavior; Driver, Expressive, Amiable, Analytical, Organizer and Facilitator. These behavior archetypes, and how they work together, form the transactional analysis studied here. They are derived from the three fundamental energies of our life, which are our body, heart and mind, or, our physical, emotional and intellectual energies that work as integrated elements and in combinations to influence our personality style. Our basic energies are:
|Physical, Emotional Intellectual|
|and their combinations:|
|Physo–Emotional, Physo–Intellectual, Emo–Intellecutal.|
This triad of energies are the dynamic forces that influence our lives, our nations and our world.
Unlike Kalarhythms of the United States (see introduction) which studies how these energies move with Cyclic influence to change the nation, Kalarhythms & Interpersonal Behavior looks at how these basic energies manifest in us as individuals to create six personality archetypes. All of us tend to incorporate traits these six style types in some form or another. How we do so, and how we interact with others is the subject of this work.
1. Personality Style Aspects defines Physical, Emotional and Intellectual energies and how they influence personality traits. Three dichotomies of traits are also listed as Passive/Active, Inward/Outward, and Simple/Complex. Working models are given to display the basic energies in geometric form along with polar dichotomies.
2. Personality Styles are different personality types that develop from the influence the three basic energies and their combinations. Depending on whether one is more Physically based, Emotionally based or Intellectually based, or somewhere in between, one may be a Driver, Expressive, Analytical, Facilitator, Organizer or Amiable.
