Holistic Typology assesses personality types by accounting for the psychological, physical, and spiritual components of health and well-being.
Psychological Basis of Type: This typology system first recognizes the soul as the living essence of consciousness, formed when thoughts, emotions, and willpower coexist. The manifestation of those thoughts, emotions, and willpower is what we understand as the personality. Holistic Typology highlights how different typology systems can understand different components of personality. When using any typology system, Holistic Typology emphasizes the importance of evaluating personality type based on how a person functions when they are at their healthiest, which means how a person functions when having contentment, discipline, and integrity. Knowing how you function at your healthiest state will help you holistically understand your strengths and weaknesses and how you can address them so that you can achieve and maintain the healthiest version of your personality.
Physical Contribution to Type: The body is what physically houses and nurtures the thoughts, emotions, and willpower that comprise the soul, contributing to its physical health and therefore influences personality type through neurobiological mechanisms that fluctuate based on certain physical states (ie, brain trauma, meditation, pain, etc). Holistic Typology incorporates the physical component into personality typology by offering various exercise and meditation sessions that are intended to instill psychologically-beneficial neurological mechanisms tailored to each personality type.
Spiritual Contribution to Type: The spirit is the transcendent energy that fuels the thoughts, emotions, and willpower that comprise the soul, contributing to its spiritual health and therefore influences personality type by giving it the spiritual drive for contentment, discipline, and integrity. All human souls (and perhaps some animal souls) share these drives, regardless of religious background, as all personalities are developed based on what brings a person contentment, discipline, and a sense of integrity. Thus, every soul has its own transcending spiritual energy that fuels its thoughts, emotions, and willpower to pursue contentment, discipline, and integrity. Exactly how the soul ends up pursuing contentment, discipline, and integrity will depend on the soul’s personality. Holistic Typology incorporates the spiritual component into personality typology by partnering with Doctors for Christ (founded by the same founder of Holistic Typology), and teaching/engaging in activities that help different personality types fulfill their spiritual drives for contentment, discipline, and integrity.
