Self-Development is the gradual movement of one's capabilities, traits, features and qualities to gain maturity. It is the most influencing Link among the seven because it is an ingredient of the rest six embracing Self-Development, Human Thinking, Imprints, Bio-Circuits, Intelligence, personality, Individual Character Zones (ICZ) (see Stage-3), Emotional Intelligence (Ei), Spiritual Intelligence (Si), Cognitive Intelligence (Ci), Moral Intelligence (Mi), Intelligence Quotient (IQ). Moreover, Character-Plane, Public- Plane, Trust, Motivation, Self-Awareness, Self-Confidence, Self-Belief, Self-Respect, Self-Deceptions, Self-Talk, Integrity, and Trustworthiness, as attributes among others detailed in our Seven-Links to Success a Treasure to High-Performing Business e-Book sold from downloads.
Self-Development progresses to maturity from fundamental characteristics which when re-scoped (re-imprinted) we get new habits to the particular individual. Seven-Links does not believe on listing seasoned habits to be followed by the society rather, we researched for the functional facets which control the particular person’s habits. These attributes are foundation to this Link, understanding and its utilization relies on four terms intelligence, Imprints, Bio-Circuits, and personality defined below.
Intelligence is a combination of the ability to: (1) Learn: This includes all kinds of informal and formal learning via any combination of experience, education, and training, (2) Pose problems: This includes recognizing problem situations and transforming them into more clearly defined problems. (3) Solve problems: This includes solving problems, accomplishing tasks, fashioning products, and doing complex projects.
Personality is the complex outcome of social interactions composed of sentiments (imprints during maturity), thoughts and know-how of an individual affording the power, trends, and other distinctive or acquired characters distinguishing one individual from another.
Imprints are more-or-less hard wired programs which the brain is genetically designed to accept only at certain points in its development. These points are known, in ethology, as times of imprint vulnerability. However, there are advanced techniques summarized as All Products for re-imprinting habits in adulthood if they do not match the desired outcomes. They are quality products in all life challenges, ranging from problem solving, re-imprinting bad habits to the best ones, stress, re-imprinting trauma experiences arising from accidents, 'black-swans' (un-expected risks beyond anticipated levels from history) etc.
Bio-circuits are biological circuits or maps, gears and similar analogies. These definitions give rise to the identifications of the individual facets influencing habits because during maturity human imprints behaviour from their “mothering” entities thus defining their bio-circuits (beliefs, values etc). Mothering figures might be a mother, a niece, a nurse or similar caring individuals from infancy to maturity. From Imprinting and bio-circuit knowledge we define:
Spiritual Intelligence (Si) is an ability to find-out hidden treasure from complex situations, by aligning to reality (orientation) that serves an individual or a society in a detailed framework functional in a business undertaking (essence).
Cognitive Intelligence (Ci) is that power scrutinizing setbacks with an intention to offer a complete development plan, design, and execution of aspirations while taking preventive measures on all possible challenges during execution as well as proposed life-circle.
Emotional Intelligence (Ei) is the power to comprehend, contain and utilize our emotion beneficially; meanwhile buffering and transforming others’ feelings into synergized opportunities to both parties.
Moral Intelligence (Mi): is that ability involving, outlining, supporting, endorsing and committing concept of judgment, such as good or evil, right or wrong, virtue or vice, justice or crime. Such that, if you employed an ethical concept, integrity rises else take responsibility for your vice; in return, if you come across unethical treatment practice compassion and forgive.
Moreover, Intelligence Quotient (IQ): Measure of intelligence that takes into account a child’s mental and chronological age. IQ-Score = MA / CA x 100. Mental age (MA) is the typical intelligence level found for people at a given chronological age, Chronological age (CA) is the actual age of the child taking the intelligence test. Caution: “Intelligence tests were developed for the practical function of selecting students for admission or placement in schools. Originally, these tests were not based on any theory of intelligence. They defined intelligence (IQ) as the ability to do well in school (ref.).
These definitions clears language semantics, however, some misunderstanding might sneak into a thinking process, let elaborate more. IQ is a mental capacity for memory in mathematics, arithmetic, symbols etc. but it does not involve mental cognitive process, which is taken care by Ci, while Si in the extreme analysis including search for a true meaning and essence of issues. IQ is not a specific intelligence; rather it is a scale of memory and ability to absorb knowledge, relative to one's physical age. The best analogy to differentiate the two terms is to consider a human and a computer. A modern computer is best in IQ (memory, speed and accuracy) as compared to man, however, the same will not perform anything (including items to remember and compute) until ordered by a cognizant “human” who is best in Ci, and Si, deciding what, why, and how, to be computed and remembered. Ci works in tandem with Si, in the previous computer analogy, the “what” is done by Ci, while the “how” and the “why” by Si, nevertheless, the “how” and the “why” will not come into being until the “what” is realized. Ci is about commissioning imagination by the “what” cognition, while IQ is about knowledge realization of the “how” process, while the “why” stays alone in Si obligation.
CAUTION: Low Ci individuals do not imply they cannot cognize issues; this is a confusing phenomenon similar to those having high Ci, they are not smart cognizant for the sake of Ci score alone. Remember, this are thinking processes not like physical process where we need to touch things; in thinking processes the influence of Si which creates individual comfort-zones plays a key role in cognizing issues; i.e. "Seeing is not believing. Believing is seeing" -by Friedley, W.L. meaning an individual will cognize only things or issues within his/her comfort zone. This is detailed well in our Seven-Links to Success sold from here. Example, a high Si individual will create comfort-zone related to ideal-states (compliance to the truth) of concerns first time they rescuers, unlike to a low Si individual who will incline towards self-care only, they are dictators. However, there are individuals who balance facts and keep refining towards ‘ideal’ states; in Seven-Links to Success work; we term them HIPA-Individuals (High-Performance Individuals). They are reformers and visionaries of the world, able to take calculated risks. This discussion is detailed in an e-book sold from here.
Human thinking is a unique endowment to human as compared to other animals which do not think, rather reacts to situations from pre-programmed responses. During thinking human works in a very complicated manner, however to decipher the process we take analogy of two-dimensions instead of intricate overlapping spherical Venn diagrams for simplicity, this precess is detailed graphically from here stage-1.
From Venn diagram converging to Individual Character Zones (ICZ) - (Workforce) we identify several terms concerned in thinking process, Si, Ci, Ei, and Mi already defined. CIPU is Character Influencing Potential Union concerned of an individual identity as an Individual-Plane (IC). IC is that sub-conscious cognizing and imaging process happening very fast individually, giving the meaning and orientation of thinking process. PSPU is the conscious thinking including considerations of situations, like Ei (mostly empathizing), and Mi (integrity, responsibility, compassion, and forgiveness). Now, a thinking individual is having an assigned direction and essence of a certain response arousing courage or cowardice that triggers a trusting or mistrusting actions to the public. “Trust is a mutual relationship, whereby partners in a group eagerly suspend control over engagements within themselves, based on their immaculate past conducts”. Trustworthiness is that quality to be trusted. For he detailed treatment of this discussion, download our e-book from here. Moreover, Human Thinking is the fundamental success in business, failure to think properly leads to troubled business, we have collected top-of the line products to re-imprint human-habits, thinking processes etc. in e-books, CDs, etc. from All Products page.
Self-Development Key elements, defines a model that leads to a breakthrough of an ICZ (Individual Character Zone) defining orientations of individual characters shown graphically from here stage-3.
From Individual Character Scale grphics is essential in simplifications of Venn diagram converging to Individual Character Zones (ICZ) - (Workforce) a Venn diagram which might be very complex in identifying individual habit performance. Self-Awareness, Self-Confidence, Self-Belief, Self-Respect are terms used as a group in creativity process through Self-Talk process utilizing a P-square wizard well dealt in a Seven-Links to Success a Treasure for High-Performance Business sold from here. It is a must have e-book for any high-performing manager or leader. Self-Deceptions is a psychological process of denying or rationalizing away the relevance, significance, or importance of opposing evidence and logical argument - involves convincing oneself of a truth (or lack of truth) – so that one does not reveal any self-knowledge of the deception. Motivation is an influencing factor to an individual or a group to think or perform certain undertakings in line to the motivating force. Integrity is offering promises accompanied with a high degree of accomplishment aligned to values and consistent with principles. Individual Character Scale gives rise to the breakthrough ICZ shown on the the third graphics from the page from here stage-3.
Individual Character Zones (ICZ) categorizes individual habits into six zones from zone-1, zone-2, zone-3, zone-4, zone-5 and zone-6 as shown in the figure. It is a versatile invention relieving HR-training, selecting etc. ICZ is applicable in all other Links as seen starting from Leadership Link on. The Typical values of these zones are detailed in the table shown from here stage-4.
