Book Elaborations

Hello, Juan here. For those who have a copy of the book, you might have encountered the gap that exists between text descriptions and visual expression. Much of the topic of visual reading requires tangible observations to really make sense of it. For that reason, I’ve been creating a complementary series called “Book Elaborations” which…

Stages of Consciousness (Ni)

Ni: Ego Your experience of the present is always informed and laden by the longstanding trends you see, which interrelate different cultural and social ideas together into one unbroken continuum. You have an unshakeable, recurring sense of how this moment is but one bead in a long chain spanning into the past and future, propelled…

Stages of Consciousness (Si)

Si: Ego Those who are closest to you may know you to be an “earthy” person. You have an appreciation for the subtle textures in life, the heartfelt investment of your energy, and for the simple joys that can be found every day when we look for them. You put yourself into your work and…

Stages of Consciousness (Se)

Se: Ego You are someone who loves experiencing reality in all of its vivid details. From glowing sunsets to the rush of wind on your face, you love vibrance, and the freedom that comes with tactile exploration. You are an animated person and have a magnetic energy that will often pull others to you. You…

Stages of Consciousness (Ne)

Ne: Ego People may describe you as a “dreamer”. You have a wild sense of imagination which enjoys making clever, spontaneous and farfetched interconnections between ideas or things.

Energetic Quadrants

The Explorer Type: Pe 1st: Receptive 2nd: Analytical One word that can best describe the Explorer type is “receptive”. Unlike the Ji type, the Pe type begins their psychic experience from an openness to the yet-undiscovered. A topic that is introduced is analyzed for its own merits, as the refresh factor allows for a new…

Function Quadrants

Alpha In the four alpha types we find a special sense of humor which invites social participation and calls upon culturally known (and “safe”) memes. And since humor relies heavily on the unexpected, the more Si-heavy alpha types can manifest as being cliché and unoriginal in their socialization style. But if Ne is engaged creatively…

Vultology & Psychology

Snippet from Cognitive Type, Chapter 30 “I must begin by reiterating that type is a vastly more complex matter than what these first principles of visual reading could account for by themselves. One would be at high risk of err by exclusively using an objective avenue of measure (such as vultology offers) to determine the…

TeSi – Okabe Rintarou

Okabe Rintarou, the eccentric, aspiring mad-scientist is intellectually motivated, functionally minded, yet mediocre in many forms of real application. He is an inventor, an entrepreneur, and has a proactive and overbearing personality. Okabe is an example of the TeNe duality at work, which creates an energy that is simultaneously crass, manic, and preposterous. Similar to…
