Personality Style Aspects


The Physical, Emotional and Intellectual Energies within Personality Styles & Behavior Traits


Personality Traits develop into different Personality Styles, or, Personality Types as our body, heart and mind work together. The ratios and emphasis that we put on Physical, Emotional and Intellectual energies form the behavior traits that give us our different Interpersonal Styles. This alters our methods of behavior, our interaction with others, and our life decisions. The elements behind; Driver, Expressive, Analytical, Facilitator, Organizer and Amiable Personality Styles are; Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Physo-Emotional, Physo-Intellectual, and Emo-Intellectual, respectively.

Physical styles of behavior are active driving force, assertive or even forceful. Material gain and acquisition are important as is finding creative ways of winning the game. Physical styles may be territorial, prone to fence building, and in quest of a challenge. They are their bodies and see the physical world as the true reality. Often they are mesomorphs

Emotional styles of behavior lead with the “heart.” They are fluidic, expressive and quick to react. They are warm, outgoing and social as they form personal relationships and subjective positions. Emotional styles may be righteous, judgemental, and compassionate. Often they are endomorphs

Intellectual styles of behavior are technical, analytical and specific in their approach. Intellectuals build on facts and data for objective analysis and their search for truth. Often they are ectomorphs.

Combinations of styles result as we base ourselves in more than just one of the polarites. Many of us balance between somewhere between the classic examples of personality styles by combining the traits of each.

PhysoEmotional styles are subjective in their goals and creative in facilitating them.

PhysoIntellecutal styles organize practical setups for objectives.

EmoIntellectual styles are amiable and reasoning.


Together this give us six styles with consistent tendancies and comfort zones of behavior. How they relate to each other is the subject of this work.

Triad of Energies – Physical, Emotional, Intellectual – Active-Passive, Inward-Outward, Simple-Complex

Physical, Emotional and Intellectual aspects are individuated and interconnected in living systems. The triad of energies replicates itself universally. In a person they are body, heart and mind. In a nation, they can be production, faith and education. In the global arena they can bring the Industrial Revolution, the Romantic Era and the Baroque Era of elaborate innovation, respectively. The triad continues.


Simple and Complex, Passive and Active, Inward and Outward

Polarities: Active-Passive, Inward-Outward, Simple-Complex
Simple and Complex, Passive and Active, Inward and Outward, Yantra

Trikonas – Physical, Emotional, Intellectual with Polarities

Whether we are more Physical, Emotional or Intellectual will change how we perceive things. If we are more Physical, we tend to be more action oriented and see things based on what one can do, and what one cannot. This gives us a win / loose polarity in our estimations. If, on the other other hand, we are more Emotional, we tend to judge things by how we feel and weigh them on their moral basis with a right / wrong polarity. And if we are more Intellectual, we tend to be more analytical than active or judgmental. This perspective has us view things on the basis of a true / false polarity. All three elements can be found to varying degrees in everyone’s style. It is the interplay of the triad.

Not only does our emphasis on these polarities change with different styles, but so does our perception of them. Below is a list of these they may be viewed from different perspectives:


True and False, Win and Lose, Right and Wrong
Physical is: Creative
Emotional is: Subjective
Intellectual is: Objective
Perceptions of polarities from 3 points of view:
is Succeed
or Accept
or Discover
is Effective
or Just
or Fact
is Tangible
or Sincere
or Correct

The great triad manifests in human form as with a body, heart and mind that give us our three Cycles; the Physical Cycle, Emotional Cycle and Intellectual Cycle. To symbolize our underlying energies in geometrical form, we could a use an upward triangle, or, the male trikona of Hindu mythology that symbolizes Shiva. To symbolize cominations of our underlying energies, we could use a downward triangle, or, the female trikona of Hindu mythology that symbolizes Shakti:

Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Upward Trikona

Upward Trikona
Physical, Emotional, Intellectual
Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Downward Trikona

Downward Trikona
Physo-Emotional, Physo-Intellectual, Emo-Intellectual

Energies Combined produce sytles in themselves as they blend elements from the triad of energies and form distinct patterns of behavior.

A simple geometrical model allows us to identify the elements of energy and how they may combine.
