13 Views Not surprisingly, I hope, the difference between homo sapiens (thinking man) and Human Being is this elusive "thing": beingness. Beingness does not respond to words. Beingness does not respond to words. Not even "declarations!" It doesn't respond to force, not even to force of will. It doesn't really respond to feelings either. And: IMPORTANT! is not created by doing
It is a whole different ball of wax. The secret is on the
seed level... whatever that means, right? lol
You can give a lot to charity, but not be charitable. You can smile a lot, but not be happy. You can fake it but you will not make it... there is ONE of the many misguiding, misleading slogans.
You can observe it, and yet know nothing about it.

I am what you would call a "quickstart"...
(Kathy Kolbe's testing method, most interested in how you do things) measures something innate, like it's your nature, it can also give you indication about where you are leaking fire. When I look at people and their conation chart, the Kolbe index, I can see how they stay the same, how they avoid discomfort, how they dampen their fire.

I have found that personality tests that rely on your knowing yourself and to predict what you would do in certain situations, are profoundly flawed.
I say this after working with thousands of people, one-on-one, observing them, feeling them (I am an
empath) and comparing who and how they are compared to what they say about themselves.
The gap is significant between the two.

I didn't know. But "god" works in mysterious ways, the book I am reading has an answer that shows me what has been missing for me on Sunday and all my life.
The book, Peak, the new science of expertise, calls it Mental Representation.
Mental Representation is being able to see the finished product in your mind's eye, and also see the process getting there, so you can anticipate missteps, and can correct, given that you know how it is, how it looks when it is perfect.

I am weak at both, but I am literally unwilling to spend my limited energies to create a process.
resistance is so strong, my neck and shoulders are hurting.
What is that about?
There are a lot of ways to analyze humans and their behaviors, and one of them is through conation, which is a, I guess, Latin word for inclination, or inner nature.
Kathy Kolbe created a few tests and she says that the amount of initiative, the amount of energy to start something is finite, and everyone's can be divided to 20... so far so good, I hope.
The four drastically different ways to approach something, to initiate something are
