Are you a Red Dot?
If you are high in Red you have a deeper understanding of what life is about, but have very little time for details. Your thinking comprises of words, phrases, and uncluttered ideas. When you stick to your own ideas, your projects are more successful. You tend to be creative with your solutions to problems. This is because you like original ideas and actions, rather than traditional ones. Sometimes you will hear music inside your mind, or hear a small, still, clear voice providing you with a solution you have been searching for. At other times, you may hear a particular sound that has meaning for you, or which gives you an understanding about what is happening in your life. People who are strong in their Red Dot nature tend to be good leaders because they have the ability to give clear, simple directions that others can easily follow. Many of history’s great generals have been strong in this nature because of their ability to direct in a concise manner. The Red Dot type will never give up because they know there is always a way to accomplish the goal. People whose Red Dot part is highly developed have a tremendous inner drive to be successful. They also have great inner respect for themselves and others, provided the others have respect for themselves also.
So how do you know if you’re a Red Dot?
One of the most obvious traits of a Red Dots is – the ability to hold a grudge.
If you are a Red Dot and someone lies to you, lets you down, or does something you don’t agree with, you will cut them off before they even know what happened.
In your world, everyone you meet is either a:
- cognitive guest (friend)
- a psychological trespasser (foe).
And without even knowing it, you will automatically put everyone you meet and interact with into one of those two categories. There is no in between.
So how can you stop this Red Dot trait of holding a grudge from negatively affecting your relationships (both personal and professional)?
