Phycology is one of the oldest fields of study, there were notes on the reoccurrences of patterns within the brain since prior to Ancient Egypt. These studies linked phycology with religion but nevertheless represented patterns in behaviour and techniques for the modification of behaviour.
NueroPower combines the intellect of a master of Artificial Intelligence and Phycology to produce a logical representation of behaviour patterns and leaders can use this model to predict behaviour, allowing leaders to mitigate risk and create a harmonious team.
Tension and the Amygdala
This was best explained to me as a story; imagine for a moment that you are a bunny rabbit, nibbling at grass on a field, enjoying the breeze and flavour of your meal when a saber tooth tiger jumps out of the brush. At this point as a bunny your brain is flooded with adrenaline and your Amigyla takes over, making you run for your life, at the point when you are running, you have lost the ability to feel the breeze, enjoy a meal or little lone perform any mathematics. This is the amigyla taking over in times of high stress.
People will tolerate stress based on their level of maturity, stress prevails when person experiences their Amygdala taking over. The tension does not have to be life threatening for the amigyla to take over, once taken over this person is using a lower-brain and can no longer contribute fully to the situation. This diagram illustrate the Archetype (Nuero Rational) vs the Amygdala (Neuro Limbic) response to tension. Maturity controls which response is most likely to occur, people that are lower on the maturity will naturally respond with their Core Belief.
It is important to note that tension could be a conversation around work, a debate with your boss for example could be a trigger that will create tension as described and the response will depend on how the individual handles the tension, if it is a threat the Amygdala will take over and a Nuero Limbic response will be triggered.
- p2 Drive
- Of the Six Core Intelligence Centers exists 3 pairs, c1/c2, p1/p2 and i1/i2. Of these pairs a person will find that one characteristic dominates over the other, this is because these parts are mutually exclusive when used, so a person cannot be experiencing empathy when clarity is sought (empathy requires experiencing another persons emotions which blurs clarity), equally one cannot be spontaneous when idealism is sought and one cannot be logically and planning when a high drive exists. This distinction allows the categorising of archetypes for a person will have an individual response to which Core Intelligence of the 3 pairs dominates. This leads us to the existence of 8 archetypes as 2 to the power of 3 is 8 and 8 combinations of these attributes exist.
Spiral Up, Spiral Down
The formula to spiral up is IPCIPC and the formula to spiral down is CPICPI .
This denotes that for a certain archetype when high amounts of tension are experienced, their C attribute will invert so a person who is predominately c1 will experience a dominance of c2, during times of stress and to spiral upwards the person will instead invert the I attribute for example from i1 to i2. This will require the person to be more connected with those around them and experience more i2 (empathy).
The existence of the subconscious is not usually debated, for this instance we need to identify two entities, ourselves and our active consciousness. As a person you discuss issues with your mirror, a person's mirror will be focusing on the issues that are opposite to their Archetype. If a person exhibits attributes that are c1, p1 and i1. Then they're mirror will be pre-occupied with issues of opposing attributes c2, p2 and i2. Due to the nature of the 6 Core Intelligence Centers and their mutually exclusivity the denominating attributes will mean that for a person whom is for example predominantly c1 - Spontanousity, their subconscious will focus on the attribute of c2 - Idealism. As a matter of personal development and fulfilment it is crucial for a person to not ignore their exlusive attribute but to continuously promote them and in this example, focusing on c2 - Idealism, will bring contentness to the individual. Ignore the c2 - Idealism attribute and drown it with c1 - Spontanousity will only cause unfulfillment.
One does not exhibit the subconsious whilst engaged in conversation with another person. Generally achetypes will find fulfilling conversations from individuals that exhibit attributes that match their mirror rather than their own.
NeuroPower provides 3 Models and I have summarised this diagram integrates them as follows:
The first layer are the 6 Core Intelligence Centers.
Which runs on the left side of the model, simply illustrates that for a greater maturity a full archetype (or Nueral Rational) response will be given. This depends on the person's archetype. The five simple levels (there are more) are:
- Purple - The world is for the most part large and mysterious. You believe in the virtues of your family and contribute to their goals. As a child this is the first level of maturity above instinct
- Red - You understand the world and control your environment for yourself through aggression and submission.
- Blue - You believe in order and society, you maintain task lists and promote processes
- Orange - Where others see lemons you see lemonade. You focus on the future and focus on actions that will benefit your future
- Green - You believe that everyone has a place in the world, you recognize and contribute to goals for the benefit of the community
Many people accept the fact that the Amygdala responds to tension in three basic ways: fight, flight or distrust, NeuroPower adds further depth to this theory by breaking these into 3 subclasses for each primary reaction:
- Compliance - The person demands perfection, but those victimized feel judgement
- Compliance - The person feels they are a helper, the victims feel manipulated
- Fight - The person feels they are promoting a success image, the victim feels slimey lies
- Flight - The person feels like they need to be a "drama queen", the victim feels selfishness and avoidance.
- Flight - The person responds by hiding and breaking empathic connections with others, usually require distance or isolation, the victim feels avoidance.
- Compliance - The person sees pure logic, the victim feels like they are being accused of conspiring
- Fight - The person feels the need to display happiness, the victim feels a false happiness and deciet about the authenticity of the happiness.
- Flight - The person asserts their needs for boundaries and dominance, others will be bullied or feel bullied.
- Flight - The person will promote peace through submission, the victim will feel avoidance and false state of resolution.
- The Navigators mind is structured and visionary. These opposites create a person with a clear vision and the discipline and structure to achieve it. Regardless of their development Navigators are super-dependable and likes to be respected contributor of the community, a pillar of society. Very emotionally detached, Navigators are inflexible when it comes to discussing plans, directions, approaches and logistics. If they are not given warning, however, they can cope with flexibility and ambiguity and perform brilliantly 'on the hop'. This seems contradictory, but is achieved because they flip to their mirror. Navigators enjoy the very best quality in things and particular enjoy collecting things which will appreciate in value. Navigators are very focused when their is a clear vision, executing enormous mind over matter, supressing unwanted emotions and disciplining themselves and the people around them. They will follow systems to the letter of the law, any shortcutting or variance from approves process will be stopped and the perpetrator reprimanded. The Navigators way is the right way and they will want an audit trail to demonstrate compliance. If the Navigator has no vision or plan to follow, they freewheel and become obsessed with experiencing life, experiencing every form of physical sensation.

There is a lot of content on this subject, specifically the 4 maxims that form NeuroPower are not covered in depth in this article but rather portions of introduced. Thus I recommend if you have questions or would like a deeper understanding to buy the book called NueroPower by Peter Burow. There are also courses and certifications on the framework which I believe would help anyone not just at work but also in giving clarity to personal relationships.
