Recognizing Defenses :: Class 2: Recognizing Dynamic Defense Style

Dynamic Defense Styles are the result of denying our feminine and emphasizing our masculine.We emphasize Mastery, Time and Task centered management and goal-centric activities. We act outwardly strong and certain, even when we are not. We are identified by a perimeter Defense Style, with hidden emotional vulnerabilities. We are strong in objective, experiential modalities, such as Sensations and Thoughts. We use our intellectual framework to enhance Security. We demonstrate strong autonomy and self esteem while seeking intimacy and self respect. Dynamic people are primarily motivated by being seen getting the job done. Being acknowledged is everything. Feelings and Emotions are controlled so they do not get out of control. Power is generated by being able to impose their thoughts on others. They use order and structure to justify taking positions that elevate them over others. They break down each problem so it can be appreciated and solved.

As Dynamic individuals, we admire strength, despise weakness and will fight (when challenged) to prove ourselves. We validate our Truth intellectually by getting people to agree with our assumptions. Since defenses are partial truths, we are highly susceptible to Illusions. Sometimes, we get caught up in Intensity, because we cannot distinguish our own Truth. This is why we seek Wisdom in others and try to learn more about circumstances from them. The biggest illusion we confront is that information is power. When we do not consider all the possibilities, we are susceptible to snap judgments that end up backfiring. Our biggest fear is that we are not loved. To resolve this, we invest in activities and intellectual support to convince others we are behind them.

Dynamic individuals seek truth but have difficulty being complete with it. Our time-centeredness drives us into competitive situations, where we always measure our performance vs. others’. We believe that a good offense is the best defense and therefore seek to throw others off balance so we will have an advantage. We rarely trust our intuition, even if we have developed it as part of our creative expression. It is not recommended to confront or make fun of the truth of a Dynamic individual. It will not end well! Through the review of hundreds of pictures, we explore the various physical and energetic characteristics that indicate a Dynamic Defense Style,. Our objective is to offer enough examples so we will be able to see these characteristics in life. The class also comes with all presentations (in PDF format) and video recordings.

Recognizing Defenses :: Class 3: Recognizing Disarming Defense Style

Disarming Defense Styles are the result of denying our masculine and emphasizing our feminine.We emphasize Mystery, Chaos that invokes unexpected outcomes. Our outer softness conceals a strong interior where, if we are pushed to perform, we typically exceed people’s expectations. This Defense style is initially adaptive, but eventually can be pushed too far and becomes explosive. We demonstrate strong intimacy and self respect while seeking to improve our Autonomy Skills and self esteem. To accomplish this, we need to be grounded in our physical body. Our perceptual strengths are mostly subjective and comprised of the unification of Feelings and Emotions, producing playful Passion and intuition. The problem is when we get caught up in Projections where, when we want something to be true, we idealize ourselves or others to make it so.

Our primary fear is that we are not adequate or enough. We tend to redefine problems to fit our at-hand preconceived solutions. We adore openness, hate bullies and flee from confrontation when we do not see the value in it. This reflects that we are sensitive to blame, express fear to make peace with it and repress anger because we are not comfortable expressing it. Disarming Defense Style individuals are easily identified by their gorilla warfare approach, where misdirection helps divert attention away from their actions. We can get caught up in drama, particularly when it allows us to divert attention away from certain alternatives we wish to avoid. When we identify with this defense, we believe that our Goodness produces a context where we can see meanings, even when others cannot.

Anxiety wears us down, particularly when we get caught up in having to compare ourselves to everyone around us. It would be helpful to not take ourselves so seriously or to project how others should be good, because it sabotages our personal self development. We are susceptible to jealousy and envy because we fear others have the qualities we lack. Through the review of hundreds of pictures, we explore the various physical and energetic characteristics that indicate a Disarming Defense Style Our objective is to offer enough examples so we will be able to see these characteristics in life.
