Interpersonal Intelligence Quotient (IIQ)

It is a commonplace to observe that children are "impressionable" and the elderly are "set in their ways". Given that exceptions are not hard to find, the general rule still applies. Why is that? One reason is that our energetic psychology maintains a complex continuity of "personality", "illusions", "quirks" and "filters" over time. The East West Healing Arts Center clinic, located in Oakland, California, and in Talent, Oregon (between Medford and Ashland) is the originator of MindMapping® BioImaging® which provides you with an objective evaluation of your Interpersonal strengths and MindTraps®. We provide excellent natural medical care and nutrition counseling & coaching.Contact us by phone to find out more at 541-535-4325 or email us.

The Interpersonal Field, one of seven MindMaps®, can only be evaluated by the BioImaging® Character Mapping process. Your CharacterMap® identifies the 12 stuck "set points" relating to 12 critical aspects of your character. A "CharacterStat®" for each character trait (see list of traits below) can be fixed high, low, or somewhere in between. Whatever the set point, once set, it becomes the default you will always trend back to. Once a traumatic event has set a CharacterStat®, it is no longer flexible or able to shift with different or evolving relationships. That is, unless you enter into a reprogramming mode with the aid of the Character Mapping process.

The character traits in our Interpersonal system are designed to shift up or down as appropriate to the current circumstance. For example, our Trust should go down when we are dealing with a con man, and up with someone with high integrity. Instead, most people trend towards the same Trust answer with everybody. Thus their Interpersonal Intelligence Quotient (IIQ) is low because it always gives the same, or a predictable answer, when confronted by the same looking-sounding kind of person.

A low IIQ no longer shifts in an intelligent way to accurately gauge the character of another and then inform us in a way that we are able to appropriately change our behavior with changing circumstances and changing partners. A low IIQ tends to make us avoid new people. Or to huddle together with a long known group of people sharing a cluster of common interests of community activities. This is an "in-group" attempt to compensate for the missing Interpersonal Field's rapid but still accurate, so not a reactionary snap judgment based on superficialities only, judgment of character.

Rarely, a person can substitute raw intelligence and keen observation to simulate the function of a Character field evaluation, even when they have a stuck CharacterStats® and so achieve limited success in accessing Character. Why not get our inborn tool designed for the job back in working shape?

A fixed CharacterStat® is also a specific organ health risk. Each fixed CharacterStat® skews a specific Divergent acupuncture channel, which in turn turns up or down the function of it's related organ. If you are an adult, the overwhelming likelihood is that all 12 Character traits are stuck in a unique CharacterStat® pattern.

As with all the BioImaging® mapping procedures, as humans we share common underlying infrastructures, unique to each language or Map. it is just the details, i.e., the channel, emotion, thought, and energy pattern, that change between us.

The specific pattern associated with each rigid character trait is a major determinant of your success in jobs, marriage and relationships of all types. Although standard counseling can teach you how to generate shifts in your character traits, if your awareness is not constantly actively focused on "generating transformation", like a "constant revolution", you will drift back to your traumatically defined CharacterStat® setpoints.

CharacterStats® are the default settings which will remain permanent unless you know how to go into programming mode and change them. This is why some people are transformation "seminar junkies". For a little while during the seminar, and maybe for a little while after, these folks feel how good freedom from our MindTraps® feels. Their persistence in the pursuit of personal growth is is admirable, but when fundamental kinks remain and permanent change eludes them they may become resigned or cynical. This is too bad because a lot of people don't even make a fraction of the effort these people do. Although some of the simpler Maps, such as the Emotion or Etheric field may change permanently with talented intervention, the more complex multidimensional MindMaps®, e.g SpiritMap®, ChakraMap®, and CharacterMap®-- are not permanently dismantled unless a MindMap® has blazed a path. Even so, it takes awareness and commitment.

Most techniques fail to transform us because the MindMap® patterns are stored holographically in a distributed way not only throughout the brain, but throughout the Mind--which includes the whole body. If only a piece of the pattern remains it can resurrect itself, just like a small piece of a holographic photograph can still resurrect the entire picture, with lower resolution. Another reason is that the MindMaps® are stored in state of consciousness specific patterns.

Wouldn't it be great to "zero-out" your Mind Maps permanently and start your Interpersonal relationships out fresh and clear? If this subject is of interest to you and you wish to learn more, contact us by phone at 541-535-4325 or email us.

The CharacterMap® looks at the growing rigidity and predictability in the conduct of interpersonal relationships that is seen as we age. Young children may have no or just a few fixed Character traits, called "CharacterStats®". Our experience with thousands of CharacterMaps®s is that over time more fixity in this area occurs until finally, by the time we are older teenagers and young adults all 12 Character traits that relate to how we behave in relationships have become adhered, or stuck. In short, we tend to become "characters", but we also become "characteristic of...". We become predictable in how we interact with others, and the character of others, their integrity or lack of it, makes less difference in who we "be" in relationship then it did we we were younger. We lack relationship flexibility to adapt well to different types of people. The tendency is to then seek out a very few types of people. We then become a more stratified, intolerant and isolated society. This has a ripple effect through society.

My own thinking is that these character traits are designed to shift in an intelligent adaptation to the people we are dealing with. To continue the example given above,the interpersonal system should be a subtle sensing tool that shifts our characteristic of Trust to Low when we are confronted with the untrustworthy. If we are attuned to our internal trust meter we can feel it shifting up or down depending on the often unconscious clues we are receiving. When our Trust has become adhered and stuck at a high, low or in-between position it is no longer an intelligent computational system. It has no helpful feedback to offer and we just act more or less the same with most people. We show a sign of dis-ease, less intelligent and less flexible.

A given Character trait can become adhered during a difficult event or trauma. A thought is always adhered to a CharacterStat and often emotions are adhered as well.

Each of the 12 Character traits seems to be related to one of 12 Divergent channels in the acupuncture system. In turn, the divergent channels are the channels most closely related to long term organ energy/anergy status. The 12 Character traits are given below along with the divergent associated channel.

  • Purpose- Heart

  • Humbleness- Small Intestine

  • Receive/Give-Pericardium

  • Aware/Consciousness (mental)-Triple Heater

  • Grace/Completion-Spleen

  • Spontaneity-Stomach

  • Boundary- Lung

  • Intuition (body)-Large Intestine

  • Power- Kidney

  • Courage/Allowance capacity-Bladder

  • Responsibility/Choice- Liver

  • Trust/Trustworthyness-Gall Bladder

The term "CharacterStat®" refers to the feedback control of a "thermostat" on a heater/air conditioner. We "set the temperature" to maintain the same temperature. However, ideally our interpersonal character traits are not "set" but rather float to a place appropriate for who you are dealing with.

Interestingly, as one trait is adhered into a CharacterStat® position, other tangentially related traits sometimes compensate and become frozen as well, in a chain reaction.

By focusing our intention on a character issue can temporarily shift the setting to "hotter" or "colder" but once this intention generated shift is not actively maintained, the temperature goes back to fixed default setting.

For example, we can listen to a song about receiving love or read a poem and thereby shift our Receive/Give status temporarily. Or someone can have a great weekend workshop, or a new love, but after a while their "feelings" in a given area always seems to go back to the same old same old. However, it is our 12 internal character thermostats, fixed during many a malprogramming crisis, that determines the average "temperature" of how we allow ourselves to interact with others, that gives us this persistent perverse sameness.

This mistaking our malprogramming for our core personality is a common misconception and relates to all the adhesions the Mind-Map section. The continuity of our malprogramming over time gives us the resigned illusion that our "personality" is just "what we have" and nothing can really change it.

Fortunately the CharacterMap® and the treatments we use to deadhere the fixed interpersonal habits can enable greater flexibility and fundamental changes in the way we relate. We then have to practice, like the newly sighted, to retrain and regain our interpersonal intelligence.
