Re: Ideal workplace

Thanks for that good implicit feedback on my notion of "abstract-intensity," Roger, by pointing out the concreteness involved in jobs like science and engineering. It occurs to me that those are still distinguished by having significant abstract components in the research and design as opposed to, s...

Call for Articles: Stories of Disintegration

Hey readers who might want to be writers! I wanted to give you an update on what I'm looking for in Third Factor articles going forward. We've gotten some great articles in the works that define some of Dabrowski's terms, or otherwise approach the theory from a more academic angle (even if in the po...

Re: Dabrowski Congress

Hey, Greenfinger (and everyone else who might be wondering this) -- I recently heard that the 2020 Congress will be in Boston!

I'm not sure precisely when yet, but the past two congresses were in July.

Re: Ideal workplace

Hi, Roger, and welcome! Great to have you here at the board. I haven't seen those movies, unfortunately, so I can't comment on their analysis centers. But I imagine it overlaps at least a little bit with reality, especially since you liked the center rather than the conspiracies. What are the traits...

Re: Is TPD elitist?

Thanks for adding that, Bill -- that's great context. What do other people make of it? How do you receive it? If you have any specialized background, how does that influence your take? What threads are there to be teased out here? (To be sure: I know this is a sensitive issue, but it's really okay t...

What do you worship?

In the first of my posts capturing thoughts that, I think, could potentially lead to Third Factor themes or articles, I wanted to ask you this question: what do you worship ? This got lodged in my mind when someone raised the point that everyone worships something . This was tied up with the "social...

Is TPD elitist?

I've had this criticism raised to me a few times, and heard it obliquely elsewhere. Is the theory of positive disintegration elitist? You can see how the idea of "developmental potential" and the levels in particular might suggest to some that there is an "elect" of sorts here. And indeed, I've enco...

Article & Theme Ideas

Hello everyone! So, here's a thread that I hope will stir up some conversation, because it's your chance to have a very real impact on Third Factor . I want to know what you want to see here! And to that end, I thought I'd toss out a whole bunch of ideas that I think would be fun to write about. The...
