Elemental State; Abstraction, Instinction, and Dispassion. (associated with IxxP temperament, the color Black, and the Wilderness (on the Topographic Map.)
The best concept to describe the focus of this state is Serenity.
This is the state of balance and relaxation. It represents a psyche that is physically, rationally and emotionally relaxed. We are in this state when resting, unworried or carefree about strong desires, rationalizations or disturbances. We try to avoid rigor, fascination or obsession. This can be expressed through irreverence, contemplation or complacency. It is the state of non-compulsive focus on any particular physical, emotional or rational tendency, but equally in all.
By definition, this is the state of focus in abstraction, instinction and dispassion. Its main characteristic is being able to avoid physical, rational and emotional stress. This defines our ability to achieve total relaxation.
Archetype: Monk ~ People who have a constant tendency to this state believe that most things others stress about are unnecessary. They look for personal balance, this is their specialization. They may focus on health habits, sleep, contemplation, meditation and tending specific physical work, training and needs. Their ability to keep things simple possesses an intriguing way to inspire, give new strengths, perspectives or ideas. They can be very insightful about purely physical, rational or emotional matters, and not so much with social, professional or business related ones. They may struggle to avoid seeming unproductive, negligent, or disrespectful. When things get too tense or futile, they can restart and search for new horizons with optimism, which can be fruitful, or the basis of constant wandering. Their nature could also be that of rebels or anarchists.
People that are strongly elemental tend to emotional affairs that are not too passionate, unless they are intimate. They may bond as they go and may detach as well, but they develop very personal infatuations. They have a clear idea of the things that please them and the ones that don’t, but do not focus on promoting their values, or demand social ambition or glory. They have low interest in industry, unless it is personal, individual and habitual work. They avoid analysis, unless it is abstract and personal; this means that science, chess and crosswords puzzles, even philosophy, might be attractive, but not law, etiquette, professional and social norms. They are not prone to emotional displays, and tend to make decisions without stress, but under pressure, they can be considered aggressive, stubborn or selfish—sticking to their rebellious nature.
