WHITE = THOUGHT / INTELECTUAL CENTER


“White is very neutral, intellectual, mental. It likes to deal in facts. It´s reasonable and wants things clear and simple.”

White is the part of us that only deal in facts and data. It´s not interested in anything else. It likes to observe, watch, and not do. Think of a detective or doctor or accountant. It can appear a little ‘sterile’ or ‘dry’, for it only has an interest in seeing and say things as they are – without emotional ‘cotton wool’. It likes things to be clear, objective, simple. A doctor for example, is in ‘white’ because he needs to be neutral, impartial, and deal only in facts – it´s necessary! He can’t have an emotional reaction when he sees blood etc.

  1. Problems and distortions in white: wrong ideas, too analytical, too intellectual, boring, dry, full of opinions, cynical, high self esteem (too high?!) due to the facts and knowledge he has.
  2. Lack of development in white: lack of ideas, lack of clarity, of concrete concepts, of facts and information– everything is general, nothing clear or exact.
  3. A good white: Base of facts, learnings, a good student, open, simple, clear, clean, studious, organized, neutral, pure.
