A Simple Model For Analysing Complex People

I've always found people fascinating. I revel in unraveling the hidden layers, the secret agendas and the unspoken words. But when someone asks me my considered view of a person, all I am able to mouth is stuff like 'nice guy', 'decent chap', 'bitch' and other such cliches. I thought I should do something about it. Hence this model.

5 Parameters for analysing anyone.

1. BODY - MEASURED ON A SCALE OF 1 TO 10.
This parameter is a summation of all things physical. Short, fat, thin, dark, paunchy, sexy, disproportionate...everything gets captured here.

2. HEART - MEASURED ON A SCALE OF 1 TO 10.
This parameter measures the goodness of the person in terms of selflessness, compassion, love, grace, magnanimity and commitment.

3. MIND - MEASURED ON A SCALE OF 1 TO 10.
This parameter measures the visual, verbal, analytical, mathematical and financial acumen of the person.

4. PSYCHE - MEASURED ON A SCALE OF 1 TO 10.
This parameter takes into account the behavioural aspects of the person in question. Things like ability to get along with people, mood swings, complexes, wimpishness, and bouncebackability get captured here.

5. SOUL - MEASURED ON A SCALE OF 1 TO 10.
This parameter is a measure of the level of spiritual evolution of a soul. One doesn't have to be a religious guru to score a perfect 10 here. Basically it's all about how deep a person, one is.

On the face of it, the model might seem too simplistic. Before you rubbish it, I suggest you take the following steps:

STEP-1: Study the parameters. Assign the 1s and 10s in your head.

STEP-2: Apply the model to yourself. See how you evaluate yourself.

STEP-3: Then analyse a person using the same parameters.

To extract more from this model, assign your weightages for the parameters and then add up the scores. The final score will reveal where you stand vis-a-vis rest of the world. If you were as jobless as me, you will start computing the scores for historic personalities. Imagine comparing yourself to people like Albert Einstein, Adolf Hitler and Aurobindo. I swear it can be a trip.

As always, hard to argue with you. Good or bad? Not sure. Interesting? You bet.
