Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that. ~ Norman Vincent Peale


It is a statistical fact that individuals of a similar archetype tends to select and/or create a habitatHabitat is as a collective term for doing things and taking actions for the purposes of obtaining objectives and achieving specific goals, such as paid and/or unpaid jobs, consultations, volunteering, sports and hobbies. that fits their specific archetype. People are inclined to search for habitats where they can use their skills, abilities and express their values and attitudes. Thus, how an individual acts, experiences life and feels, depends to a large extent on his/her selected habitatFor example a holiday destination, school, college, university, place of work, company and/or organization. . When any individual is functioning and/or operating together with others - who has a similar archetype - s/he will be able to do many of the things that the others can do, will feel most comfortable and is more likely to be successful and content.

All habitats can be codedFor detailed information visit AltanaESP taxonomy, theoretical-match and assessment norms. using six basic codesSee the table below for more information. in order of chronological and functional prominence. For example the habitat of a primary school science teacher can theoretically be coded as SICEMR, which implies the following…

  1. During an average day s/he are required to deal mostly with people (S = ±90%).
  2. The majority of daily activities primarily involve scientific materials (I = ±75%).
  3. The materials and activities need to be creative, innovative and attention grabbing to keep interest and attention (C = ±60%).
  4. The material and content needs to be explained and conveyed to others (E = ±40%).
  5. Activities are taking place in a structured and organized environment (M = ±25%).
  6. Some things need to be done practically (R = ±10%).

Based on a theoretical-match, certain archetypes will typically feel much more comfortable or “at home”, when functioning and operating in a specific habitat that can statistically be indicated as follows…
