Q. Is it reasonable to correlate the ‘progression’ of world views from Self-Preservation through Security, Belonging, Organisation, etc to a perceived increase in personal control and personal influence?
It would appear that this progression represents an increasingly outward focus from self to family to organisation to broader community, and ultimately to a global focus on systems generally – is this a reasonable observation?
- The S-FT's prefer to operate in a world of certainly and thus structure and "things" so they are more likely to place a priority on the values of the first four clusters.
- The F-SNs also like a world of certainty and structure but are more "people" focussed than "things". They prefer to belong to like-minded associations/organisations/institutions and to care for people, so they too prefer values associated with the first four clusters but the ones more people focussed.
- The T-SNs prefer to invent a new technological world -- i.e. they are motivated by the desire to invent, so they will place a priority on many values from the last four clusters, though not so much the people values.
- The N-FTs are the social architects. They want to create a better society. They too place a priority on many values found in the last four clusters, though mainly those which are people oriented.
