unlock your energy map

are you more concierge, architect, producer or detective

and, why does it matter? we are all wired differently and the key to successful relationships is understanding ourselves better. Ready to continue the adventure in your journey of self-discovery?

about the hero index

This assessment is designed to help you understand your internal energy patterns. We call this your natural self; it is how you are wired.  Our challenge is that we generally assume that others think and interact the same way they do. That is what gets us in trouble, because we are all wired a little differently.

Our internal energy patterns show up in the behaviors that other people see and in the way we make decisions. Have you ever wondered why a colleague or friend does what they do?  The answer all comes down to the fact that they are not wired like you are.

Once you understand your profile it is then much easier to see profiles in other people.  

 

In the simplest form it comes down to 2 observable characteristics of human behavior: Formality and Temperature. 

  • • Formality is about our need to plan and organize, this ranges from Conceptual to Systematic. 
  • • Temperature is how we interact with others, this ranges from Social to Autonomous.

We can then plot these in a grid and begin to see the patterns that show up in the four quadrants like the diagram on the right. This is where we can start seeing the energy patterns. Our wiring contains elements of all four energy types.  Meaning that if we are self-aware enough, we can get there when it is needed.

We all have our default pattern. We have 1 or 2 energy types that are easy to access, and we probably have 1 that is a blind spot. We can think of the 4 quadrants this way.

 

Concierge: A person who vigorously supports or defends a person or cause.

Architect: A person who plans, devises, or contrives the achievement of a desired result.

Producer:  Achiever, Instigator, Influencer, Catalyst.  Gets stuff done.

Detective: One who seeks information that may not otherwise be available.

about the hero index axis

vertical axis • temperature 

horizontal axis • formality

diagonal axis • situations 

People that are more social could also be called open or even extraverts. They experience life interconnected with others, working in a group, they share and gather information experientially, visually, or verbally. The autonomous people prefer working alone or enjoy time to think. They are often individual contributors. Some may call them introverted.

The conceptual side are people that relate to mental images or ideas existing in the imagination; they are theoretical, abstract, or visionary. 

The systematic side wants things carried out using a plan, or in an orderly manner; they are methodical, efficient, or structured.

Our pace has commonalities along each diagonal axis as well. The concierge and the producer both have visceral tendencies where they want to experience the situation without much forethought, they are instinctive, spontaneous, competitive, or impulsive. 

The other axis is more logical, and we can see the Detective and the Architect are thinker that use clear, sound reasoning; they are concerned with theories or hypotheses and are methodical and inquisitive.
