Red Light vs. Green Light System​

No matter the particular goal in question, people (and animals) tend to follow a fairly obvious strategy: “pursue what will get me closer to reaching my goal, and avoid what will prevent me from reaching my goal.” Everyone is constantly involved in these games of offense and defense. It is helpful to think of our active, approach (“offense”) motivations as belonging to our “green light system” and our inhibitive, avoidance (“defense”) motivations as belonging to our “red light system.” As they pursue their various goals, people demonstrate individual differences in how sensitive their particular systems are. For example, people who are more anxious can be said to have a “red light system” that can be more easily activated, whereas the more happy-go-lucky types demonstrate a sensitive “green light system.”

Based on your responses, the relative sensitivity of these two systems for you—how sensitive each is compared to the other—is represented below:

Green light 47 Red light 53

Your responses indicate that your “red light system” is 12% more sensitive than your “green light system.” When this calibration functions well, you might be considered judicious, discerning, deliberative, and thoughtful. You have an emotional sensitivity that equips you to notice and address things that fly under the radar of other people. When this calibration functions less well, however, you might be considered more nervous, timid, and/or overly cautious. Most simply, being more sensitive to “red light” signals than to “green light” signals can also mean that individuals of your orientation more commonly experience negative emotions like anxiety, fear, frustration, disappointment, and sadness. While these emotions are actually quite useful in moderation (they warn us when something’s not right), they can of course become problematic in excess.

Self vs. Other​

A simple, powerful, and empirically-supported way to differentiate and categorize our diverse goals is by sorting them into two motivational camps: self-focused (goals have to do with me) and other-focused (goals that have to do with others). Self-focused goals are not intrinsically selfish, and other-focused goals are not intrinsically selfless. Self-focused goals are best thought of as what we refer to when we call something “work.” Generating an income, exercising, keeping healthy and clean, competing, and doing life’s necessary duties are all classic examples of self-focused behavior. Other-focused goals are best thought of as what we refer to when we call something “care” (in the social sense). Nurturing, cooperating, bonding, and attending to the thoughts and feelings of others are all classic examples of other-focused behavior. Individuals differ substantially in the relative value they place in self-focused and other-focused goals.
After assessing your relative valuation of these two goals across a diversity of contexts, the following calibration was determined:


Self 5 Other 95

Your responses indicate that you value other-focused goals 1800% more than self-focused goals. One advantage of this calibration is that you are likely admired in social spaces for being a good listener, a respectful peer, and a compassionate friend. One disadvantage of this calibration, however, is that you may erroneously discount your own personal opinions, preferences, and beliefs in the service of accommodating the people around you.

Learning vs. Self and Learning vs. Other​

While it is true that all of our decisions will demonstrate some calibration of self-focused and other-focused decision-making, there is also a third major motivator that consistently plays into our behavior: the motivation to learn. Because we are ever-changing people who navigate ever-changing worlds, we naturally work to keep our knowledge up-to-date so that we can continue to pursue our (self- and other-focused) goals properly. For this reason, it is helpful to think of learning as its own discrete motivation. We can compare the relative strength of your motivation to learn with both your self-focused motivation and your other-focused motivation.
You indicated the following calibrations in your assessment:

Self 35 Learning 65

Your responses indicate that you value learning goals 86% more than self-focused goals. Roughly speaking, this means that you tend to value learning, growing, and exploring more than you value whatever you consider to be your “work.” One advantage of this calibration is that you are more likely to chart your own course in life instead of simply following traditions and customs. One disadvantage of valuing your own self-update is that you may have more trouble zeroing in on and sticking to a concrete life path.

Other 50 Learning 50

Descriptive vs. Normative Learning​

This assessment investigates two general categories of learning. The first category is about our understanding of the world around us. This kind of information tends to be factual, nonfictional, logical, and external to the individual. We can call this form of self-update “descriptive learning.” The second category of learning is not about our understanding of the world, but our understanding of ourselves and what we value. Art, literature, philosophy, poetry, music, culture (and, more traditionally, religion) largely relate to information of this kind. This information tends to be captured by fiction and is not explicitly logical or fact-based. We can call this form of self-update “normative learning.”

Between descriptive and normative learning, you indicated the following calibration in your assessment:

Descriptive 10 Normative 90

Your responses indicate that you value normative learning 800% more than descriptive learning. This kind of orientation often indicates a more humanistic, holistic, linguistic, and beauty-oriented perspective. In the service of these interests, individuals of this orientation may naturally spend less time pursuing science, technology, and (put most generally) things that are fundamentally true. You are more likely to let your heart guide you, which can lead to passionate—but sometimes irrational—decisions.

Green light 56% Red light 44%

Your responses indicate that your “green light system” is 27% more sensitive than your “red light system.” When this calibration functions well, you might be considered bold, enthusiastic, assertive, ambitious, and/or exciting. You would likely be described as fun and outgoing, particularly in social spaces. When this calibration functions less well, however, you might be considered more impulsive, over-confident, and/or incautious. This calibration can also lead to making premature decisions when perhaps more deliberation was in order.

Self 45% Other 55%

Your responses indicate that you value other-focused goals 22% more than self-focused goals. One advantage of this calibration is that you are likely admired in social spaces for being a good listener, a respectful peer, and a compassionate friend. One disadvantage of this calibration, however, is that you may erroneously discount your own personal opinions, preferences, and beliefs in the service of accommodating the people around you.

Roughly speaking, this means that you tend to value learning, growing, and exploring more than you value whatever you consider to be your “work.” One advantage of this calibration is that you are more likely to chart your own course in life instead of simply following traditions and customs. One disadvantage of valuing your own self-update is that you may have more trouble zeroing in on and sticking to a concrete life path.

Descriptive 30% Normative 70%
Your responses indicate that you value normative learning 133% more than descriptive learning. This kind of orientation often indicates a more humanistic, holistic, linguistic, and beauty-oriented perspective. In the service of these interests, individuals of this orientation may naturally spend less time pursuing science, technology, and (put most generally) things that are fundamentally true. You are more likely to let your heart guide you, which can lead to passionate—but sometimes irrational—decisions.

This was a really interesting test. I got exactly 50/50 red light/green light.

Your responses indicate that you value other-focused goals 133% more than self-focused goals. One advantage of this calibration is that you are likely admired in social spaces for being a good listener, a respectful peer, and a compassionate friend. One disadvantage of this calibration, however, is that you may erroneously discount your own personal opinions, preferences, and beliefs in the service of accommodating the people around you.

Your responses indicate that you value learning goals 86% more than self-focused goals. Roughly speaking, this means that you tend to value learning, growing, and exploring more than you value whatever you consider to be your “work.” One advantage of this calibration is that you are more likely to chart your own course in life instead of simply following traditions and customs. One disadvantage of valuing your own self-update is that you may have more trouble zeroing in on and sticking to a concrete life path.

Your responses indicate that you value learning goals 200% more than other-focused goals. Roughly speaking, this means that you are more motivated to learn, grow, and explore more than you are motivated to attend to others. One advantage of this calibration is that you are more likely to form your own beliefs, opinions, and preferences instead of simply following what others do. One disadvantage of prioritizing growth is that you may have more trouble maintaining stable relationships over long periods of time (especially if you are changing more rapidly than others).

Red Light (71%) vs. Green Light (29%)

Your responses indicate that your “red light system” is 150% more sensitive than your “green light system.” When this calibration functions well, you might be considered judicious, discerning, deliberative, and thoughtful. You have an emotional sensitivity that equips you to notice and address things that fly under the radar of other people. When this calibration functions less well, however, you might be considered more nervous, timid, and/or overly cautious. Most simply, being more sensitive to “red light” signals than to “green light” signals can also mean that individuals of your orientation more commonly experience negative emotions like anxiety, fear, frustration, disappointment, and sadness. While these emotions are actually quite useful in moderation (they warn us when something’s not right), they can of course become problematic in excess.

Self (80%) vs. Other (20%)

Your responses indicate that you value self-focused goals 300% more than other-focused goals. One advantage of this calibration is that you can truly be said to be your own captain: you are unlikely to cave to unwelcome social pressures when it comes to making your important decisions. One disadvantage of this calibration, however, is that you may erroneously discount the thoughts, feelings, opinions, desires, and problems of others.

Self (60%) vs. Learning (40%)

Your responses indicate that you value self-focused goals 50% more than learning goals. Roughly speaking, this means that you tend to value whatever you consider to be your “work” more than you value learning and exploring. This calibration allows you to stick to personal values and strategies that you know to be successful (“if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”), but it also means that you may shy away from growing, refining, and expanding your own personal goals.

Learning (65%) vs. Other (35%)

Your responses indicate that you value learning goals 86% more than other-focused goals. Roughly speaking, this means that you are more motivated to learn, grow, and explore more than you are motivated to attend to others. One advantage of this calibration is that you are more likely to form your own beliefs, opinions, and preferences instead of simply following what others do. One disadvantage of prioritizing growth is that you may have more trouble maintaining stable relationships over long periods of time (especially if you are changing more rapidly than others).

Descriptive (20%) vs. Normative (80%) Learning

Your responses indicate that you value normative learning 300% more than descriptive learning. This kind of orientation often indicates a more humanistic, holistic, linguistic, and beauty-oriented perspective. In the service of these interests, individuals of this orientation may naturally spend less time pursuing science, technology, and (put most generally) things that are fundamentally true.

47% RED LIGHT vs 53% GREEN LIGHT
Your responses indicate that your “green light system” is 11% more sensitive than your “red light system.” When this calibration functions well, you might be considered bold, enthusiastic, assertive, ambitious, and/or exciting. You would likely be described as fun and outgoing, particularly in social spaces. When this calibration functions less well, however, you might be considered more impulsive, over-confident, and/or incautious. This calibration can also lead to making premature decisions when perhaps more deliberation was in order.

30% Self vs 70% other

Descriptive 30% vs. Normative 70%

Your responses indicate that you value descriptive learning 133% more than normative learning. This kind of orientation often indicates a more scientifically-minded, logical, systematic, and truth-oriented perspective. In the service of these interests, individuals of this orientation may naturally spend less time pursuing art, literature, and (put most generally) things that are fundamentally beautiful. You are likely to be both more rational and more nihilistic than the average person.
