PERSONOLOGY DEFINED


Personology means "the science of persons" (how persons are different as individuals). It has utilized scientific principles from older sciences and tied them together — especially data from physiology, neurology and genetics.

Replacing older methods of "typing" people, Personology has advanced by emphasizing the individual — stressing relative proportions of a person's natural endowments of pertinent specialized tissue, his/her current state of being, and emergent traits such as ideals and values. Thus, Personology encompasses the range of capacities from simple hand-coordination to extra-sensory perception.

Personology is a study based on validated scientific research showing that THE STRUCTURE OF SOMETHING ACTUALLY DEFINES ITS AUTOMATIC FUNCTION (a ball will roll because its structure is round). More to the point, a person's stature and features will describe how he/she instinctively acts, reacts and functions. A strong muscle functions differently than a weak one.

Individuals are built to function automatically in certain ways, with automatic reactions that are triggered by "feelings". These reactions are not internally activated, but will automatically express unless one chooses to react differently.

Our genetic makeup is the core of our personality — our inherent nature determines what we select and reject from what is around us. From the very start we are different in our responses and our energy potentials. We each have our own "receiver-set" which receives the same stimulus as other individuals, but we respond differently. In so many ways we demonstrate that we function through our tissue. Just as the condition of our tissue affects our performance (such as dullness from lack of sleep or irritability from not being fed), the proportions of tissue affect our performance all the time.

There are 70 trillion cells in our bodies divided into bones, skin, nerves, organs, muscles, connective tissue and brain. Each cell has a specialized function and an energy potential. All individuals have the same number of bones and muscles as other normal individuals of the same sex, but, they vary in proportion of tissue devoted to certain functions. For example, some personss have proportionately long torsos and short legs; other person of the same height have short torsos and longer lower extremities.

There are pronounced variations in more significant tissues such as the central nervous system and architecture of the brain; people are just as different internally as they are seen to be externally. We are as unlike in our inner organization as we are in our outward gaits and ways of walking.

Providentially, we are born with the mechanism to exercise control. This mechanism of control centers in suppressive areas in the frontal lobes, the core of our equipment to make adjustments to control ourselves. Our ability to adjust through the brain is tremendous. Doing the best with what we have, we can choose to react any way we want, thereby maintaining and increasing in dominion over our environment.

Personology does not attempt to answer any of the final questions as of the soul, but only to help explain some of the observed facts of how and why a person automatically functions as he does. There is a marked relaxed helpful, almost healing effect felt when a person is given an understanding of how he/she functions. As people begin to know themselves better, the knowledge seems to automatically be used for good, and a positive progressive spirit grows out of Personology.
