Through the formal analysis we can draw conclusions on a personality without the necessity of personal examination. We can make the relational diagnosis utilizing the self-assessment instrument identifying the modality and the process. Crucially, we can assess a person’s modality without the direct participation of the individual in the examination. This evaluation is achieved by piecing together information in the public domain such as, in the president’s case, multiple journalistic reports.
The Goldwater rule is applicable for illness diagnoses. Moral Science identifies diagnoses as patterns of wellness.
The Conflict Analysis Battery
The Conflict Analysis Battery (CAB) identifies an individual’s relational syndromal pattern. The psychoanalytic equivalent is determining a person’s transference. The psycho-analytic procedure of “free associations on the couch” four times a week requiring a therapist is simplified by Moral Science’s Conflict Analysis Battery. Completing this psychological self-assessment in four hours without a therapist provides a person with an accurate relational profile also illustrated with a set of metaphors reconstructing the emotional six role process.
The CAB combines a personality inventory with a set of metaphor construction and analysis tasks by means of two instruments: a relational inventory and the set of creativity tasks. These apparatus measure the unconscious accurately along the parameters of the two scientific phenomena: the scale’s three equilibrial operations and the pendulum’s three oscillations.
First, the relational personality inventory identifies the polar alternatives of the relational distinctions along the scale’s three formal dichotomies: dominance vs. subordinate, cooperation vs. antagonism and alienation vs. mutual respect. The third distinction measures psychic tension as the degree of resolution.
The second test consists of a series of creativity tasks identifying the six emotions reconstructing the syndromal six role process. The test taker is guided with prompts to evolve insights and then to identify essential changes in behaviour.
The battery is a self-assessment in which the test taker identifies her pattern of relating, along the personality inventory, and the six-part emotional dialectic captured in the person’s metaphorical language. This diagnosis helps the recipient to attain self-discovery and self-knowledge. The online deliverable battery is an emotional education that makes the participant conscious of one’s unconscious. The computer organizes the information and an extensive report is released to the test taker. The assessment experience is didactic, diagnostic and therapeutic. It represents a concise program of emotional education.
What is remarkable about the CAB is that the insights and directives for changes are identified in the assessment by the individual test taker; therefore, the test taker is the sole generator of the document, art and text, and its analysis. The testing’s clinical effectiveness validates the theoretical premise on the nature of the unconscious and the pertinence of the diagnostic categories. Statistical analysis validates the self-assessment as a reliable didactic, diagnostic and therapeutic instrument.
The relevance of the formal diagnosis for president Trump: identifying corrective adjustments
The four personality types with their six-role state syndromal structure represent Formal Theory’s four wellness syndromal diagnoses as the alternative to DSM 5’s illness diagnoses. Formal analysis introduces the science-based wellness typology as the alternative to the medical diagnostic categories. These wellness diagnoses do not stigmatize. Instead, they enlighten the recipient about the unconscious determining one’s relational choices and their consequences.
Returning to the political sphere, the wellness diagnosis can help to identify Trumps’ personality. Trump’s formal relational diagnosis is dominant antagonism. This translates into the relational modality of the Cowardly Lion. The formal analysis informs the individual and the public that the cause of his fears and defensive thinking are not due to narcissism but are caused by the aggressiveness of his conduct. This diagnosis pertains to characterological wellness distinctions.
There is a new-found effectiveness in the self-administered conceptual and assessment perspective. Not only does it impart new insights on relational patterns, but this awareness is generated in the mind of the test taker along with the guidance for changes. In the case of dominance instant recognition of the inherent relation between aggression and anxiety entails the reduction of aggressiveness as the means of finding relief from one’s unpleasant fears. Through the formal analysis we can draw conclusions on an person’s personality without personal examination by a medical practitioner. We can make the relational diagnosis utilizing the self-assessment instrument identifying the modality and the process. But we also can observe without the necessity of the direct participation of the individual in the assessment.
We stress that our evaluation is achieved by piecing together information documented by multiple journalistic reports. Therefore, the formal conceptual diagnosis is completed without examining the subject personally or needing his permission. The diagnosis is only organizing information already in the public domain towards a pattern of wellness.
