"Happiness doesn't depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental ATTITUDE," - Dale Carnegie.
My boss at Humetrics, Mel Klieman, pioneered the $5.00 psych test to help employers hire hourly workers with a good ATTITUDE. His base philosophy stemmed from a Harvard Business School study that proclaimed Attitude to be the best criteria for employee selection.
Two candidates with similar personalities can have widely divergent attitudes depending on their belief systems. Their beliefs are formed in an 80/20 ratio 80% by their date of birth mm/dd/yyyy and 20% from their childhood life experience.
Let's take two guys that have the same Birth Card the THREE of Diamonds. Trump June 14th, 1946 and Bernie September 8th, 1941 have the same basic fear or karma
Diamonds symbolize that which we value
3 of Diamonds: Uncertain Money Conditions
Money, money all they ever talk about is money. Trump says China is ripping us off and Bernie says that Wall Street is ripping us off.
Challenge for the 3 of Diamonds: Dependence on Others
Their common fear, their karmic challenge, their shared Birth Card attitude is they need the help of others to succeed. Bernie has spent half his life in Congress. Sanders is the longest serving independent in U.S. congressional history. As an Independent he hopes to gain the support of both parties to realize his personal agenda. Trump yells, "you're fired," to disguise his insecurity about dependency - trusting only family members.
The remaining twenty percent of their belief systems, their core philosophy, what makes them tick depends on the lessons they failed to learn childhood. The Bern and the Orange were stiffed in the Concern for Others 6 to 13 phase of childhood development.
The Caretaker: Maximizer, Diffuse Boundaries
Basic Fear (Wound): Having or expressing needs; being excluded; parental (partner) rejection
Internal Message Don’t have any needs of your own
Core Belief: Others need me
Bernie saw how hard his immigrant parents had to work just to put food on the table. The thought of expressing his own needs would be shameful and could cause him to be excluded from the family. The Core Belief: Others need me comes from his desire to help his mom and dad.
The Loner: Minimizer, Rigid Boundaries
Basic Fear (Wound): Ostracism by peers; parental (partner) rejection
Internal Message Don’t be close
Core Belief: I am not lovable
The fascinating thing about our childhood wound is how we attract (the Law of Negative Attraction) that which we fear the most.
In Trump's case Ostracism from the GOP establishment, Trump's attitude is "I am not lovable" thus his obsession with crowd size, ratings and 45 million Twitter followers.
in Bernie's primary campaign his fears (Being Excluded) came true with his exclusion by the DNC. Bernie demonstrated that he had no personal needs of his own by not being dependent on the moneyed interests, by funding his campaign with a 'jillion' $27.00 grassroots contributions.
