Henry has preference for right brain thinking. If you have been through one of our Emergenetics workshops, you know that he is Red-Yellow. He also has a high analytical preference. It’s not a strength (23% or greater) of his but it is 22%.
Ten years ago, Henry bought his first house, and now he is in the market for a new one. The cost of the new house exceeds his budget. But he loves everything about the home—the neighborhood, the vicinity to the shopping district, good schools, although he is not married, he sees the bigger picture and one day wants to be and have children.
The analytical side of his brain is telling Henry that the house is too expensive and if he is not careful he will dig himself into a hole that we won’t be able to get out of. But the social side of his brain is focused solely on the comforts of the home, especially since the house is located near the public library where Henry likes to lead philosophical discussion groups.
Henry doesn’t know what to do. He has hard time sleeping and eating. Each day his brain presents him with a different set of questions.
Says, Dr. Geil Browning in her book Emergenetics: Tap Into the New Science of Success, “Tri-Modals are not always able to sort out their thoughts or feelings about an issue, since to them all sides of the issue makes sense. Tri-modals often tell us that making a decision is difficult.”
Has this ever happened to you? What advice would you offer Henry? Post your thoughts in the comments section.
