Positive Intelligence is a groundbreaking new science and practice that measures and improves the percentage of time your mind is serving you versus sabotaging you. The breakthrough tools and techniques in Positive Intelligence have been honed over years of coaching hundreds of people and combine the best of neuroscience, positive psychology, organizational science, and coaching. Based on a New York Times best-selling book of the same name, Positive Intelligence has been developed into a transformational 6- week workshop that is being delivered both to corporations and the public at large. Positive Intelligence is an intuitive framework with three major components: • Weaken Saboteurs (minimize the negative voices that work against you) • Strengthen Sage (maximize the positive internal voices that work for you) • Strengthen “PQ” brain muscles (increase your command over your own mind)
What's your vision?
We are running a contest to design two prototype animation characters to illustrate one of the key concepts of Positive Intelligence, our Saboteurs. After the contest, we intend to commission the winning designer for 8 or more illustrations for Positive Intelligence. Simply put, Saboteurs are the negative voices/thoughts in our head which act against our best interest. There are 10 unique characters that the Saboteurs take on. The Judge is the master Saboteur, the one afflicting every one of us to some degree. The Judge always partners with at least one or two other Saboteurs to cause its sabotage. Other Saboteurs come in nine varieties: Controller, Victim, Stickler, Pleaser, Avoider, Restless, Hyper-Rational, Hyper-Achiever, and Hyper-Vigilant. The two Saboteurs for this contest: the Judge and the Victim. They should be separate entities that stand alone and not interacting with each other. The images developed through this contest are meant to help readers of the book and participants of the workshop visualize and grasp concepts of the Saboteurs. The Saboteurs show up in our lives in distinct ways and we describe this in detail below. We hope these inspire your creativity and are fun to illustrate! Please let us know if you have any questions! --------------------------------------------------------- The Judge: The Judge tries to point out everything negative in every situation, including what is wrong with you, what’s wrong with me and what’s wrong with the circumstance. In the process, it finds faults with self, others, and circumstances. The Judge causes all guilt, regret, shame and disappointment and much of our anger and anxiety. Judge’s Characteristics and Typical Thoughts: Self: Badgers self for past mistakes and shortcomings: e.g., what is wrong with me? Others: Focuses on what is wrong with everyone else and gets into inferior/superior comparisons, e.g., what is wrong with you? That person is incompetent Circumstances: is constantly looking for the negative in any situation and why and outcome is “bad” Thinking about all of the negative things that could or did happen over and over again with no actionable or productive thoughts to gain anything from the situation The Judge’s Justification Lies and Thoughts: Without me punishing you for mistakes, you will not learn from them and repeat them. Without me scaring you about bad future outcomes, you will not work hard to prevent them. Without me judging others, you will lose your objectivity and not protect your self-interest. Without me making your feel bad about the bad outcome, you won’t do anything to change it. --------------------------------------------------------- The Victim: The Victim believes that terrible and negative circumstances happen uniquely to them. Victim is a strategy to squeeze out some affection from those who would otherwise not be paying attention and mimics a false sense of aliveness. Others feel frustrated, helpless, or guilty that they can’t put more than a temporary BandAid on the Victim’s pain. Victim Characteristics and Typical Thoughts: No one understands me, poor me. I might be uniquely disadvantaged or flawed. An extreme focus on internal feelings, particularly painful ones. Martyr streak. If criticized or misunderstood, the Victim tends to withdraw, pout, and sulk. When things get tough, want to crumble and give up. Tend to brood over negative feelings for a long time. Feel alone and lonely, even when I’m around people I am close to. Envy and negative comparisons. The Victim’s Justification Lies and Thoughts: Maybe this way I get some of the love and attention that I deserve. Sadness is a noble and sophisticated thing that shows exceptional depth, insight, and sensitivity. Is there anything else you would like to communicate to the designers? We are looking for images that are creative, fun and invoke emotions in the spirit of the descriptions of the characters above. We would like depth / details / complexities of the descriptions above portrayed as much as possible. e.g., the Victim is more than just sad, it/he/she has self-imposed pain that is made up in their own mind. Please do not make characters brutal / explicit / religious as we will be presenting these images in the book as well as at workshops to a diverse group of people, including presenting in professional settings.
We want to look at the Judge and feel the cruelty / judgment. We want to look at the image of the Victim and feel some complexity in the Victim beyond sadness. We like more symbolic images rather than cartoons or images that look like specific people.
