    Default Morler's Levels of Emotional Maturity

    http://www.morler.com/AudioCD_Charts_web.pdf
    Welcome to my life - Emotional Maturity and Personality

    Typologies don't determine if you're able to lead or not. This developmental theory do.

    I'm currently at Level-4.

    I'm not really convinced by some of these traits. They seem designed to cater towards particular sorts of people (especially the ones who actively like to direct others), and put other types lower on the ladder.

    I don't think the "actualized person" will always be the outgoing leader type. People can lead in quiet ways, without directing the activities of others.

    Dana's list seems a little more open than the other link I looked at.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    You missed the point. All types can have all levels.

    I don't identify with any of them, and I wouldn't want to be the level 6 described there. Being a leader is not a priority of mine, I aim for freedom.

    Who'd actually admit consistently being at levels 1-3? People at those levels would rarely admit it or recognize that they are.

    If it were sunny outside I'd say level 6. But it's not so I'm going to say level 5.

    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I think I seem like a six on a great day, a five on an average day, and a four on a bad day.
