Paradox Theory™ provides a unique insight into oneself and others. Besides offering a window into aspects of ourselves of which we may be only partially aware, it provides a guideline for balancing and developing ourselves.
The Whole Life Profile is based on Paradox Theory™. A paradox is a seemingly contradictory statement, which may nonetheless be true. Paradox theory extends that principle to include complimentary and paradoxical forces and applies it to specific traits.
According to Paradox Theory™, a trait can be either constructive or destructive depending upon other complementary traits.
The Paradox Graph report (left) and Paradox Narrative focus on 12 paradoxes that relate to life.
Each of the 12 paradox graphs provides a graphical view of ones tendencies related to each paradox.
Within each Paradox, there are two complementary (paradoxical) traits. One trait is a 'dynamic' trait such as Directness, while the other is a 'gentle' trait such as Acknowledging.
For example, when Directness is complemented by Acknowledging, it takes the constructive form of being respectful. However, without the complementary trait of Acknowledging, being direct becomes blunt.
While Directness and Acknowledging appear to be contradictory, they paradoxically co-exist, complementing and fulfilling each other.
