The Next Three Traits

175 comics and over 300 famous quotes mix fun relatability with the serious underlying science to give a clearer understanding of how and why tension is felt.

The first new understanding for most people is that tension happens alongside pleasure (as excitement, anticipation, and desire) as much as it happens alongside pain (as lack, fear, hunger, anger, awkwardness, obligation, and heartbreak). The second is that momentary tension happens because of a present trigger, while persistent tension (anxiety) happens because of an internally maintained trigger.

By following the guided immersion in the high and low ends of your individual tension spectrums, you can better understand your options for generating the tensions that feel good and minimizing the tensions that feel bad.

On the science side this book proposes that the Limbic System (in the brain) acts like a subjective, emotional sense organ. It then shows what life is like at the high and low end of the seven basic tension spectrums so you can be less easily triggered by other people because you'll more accurately recognize their tensions as being unrelated to you and the things you care about.

This book doesn’t pretend that you can become happy-all-the-time. You'll feel tension again soon. But you can have a plan and develop habits that reduce the frequency and severity of negative triggers, and increase the frequency and severity of loving, enthusiastic, hopeful, joyful triggers. 

Limbic Personality Types

When you understand the typical triggers and intensity differences, a quick profile for a person's Limbic System settings can be given in three letters, like RSC or CRS. The more detailed version ranks the components of those major anxieties, like CBRIRSASFC. The most detailed version lists specific selection factors and strengths. The optimal specificity level depends on the topic being discussed and the people discussing it.

This book is called The Next Three Traits because the Limbic profile can be added at the end of any other personality classification system, like Myers-Briggs, Jung, Five Factor Model, Enneagram, even Love Languages or Astrology. It can also stand alone as it's own type, knowing that it's not addressing the non-emotional parts of personality.
