RECOMMENDED CORRECTIVE ACTION
Red-vectored people particularly enjoy both urination and drinking large amounts of fluids, while their unusually sensitive reproductive organs make them incredibly active sexually.
Crucially, uric acid exerts a powerful influence on our character: those with more of it tend to be more active and prefer leadership roles in society.
Many qualities inherent to the red vector, including selflessness and altruism, are derived from that propensity to take charge of other people. Yes, red-vectored people are honest-to-goodness altruists—their main concern, after all, is the survival and progress of their “herd,” be that their family, company, team, or any other group. They are prepared to sacrifice everything for the sake of the lives and success of those people, even at the cost of their own.
With that said, while that same red-vectored person may be an altruist where the big picture is concerned, he is ego-centric when it comes to the details. Judge for yourself:
The fast-paced red-vector life makes it imperative that the entire body and especially brain are humming along at light speed, something that is facilitated by a unique system: “hot” or “explosive” biochemistry. Red-vectored bodies are really very warm—it is almost as if they are burning up inside, which makes it no surprise that for them fire is a symbol of internal interaction.
Their favorite color is often bright red, while their favorite shape is the symbol of fire: triangles.
The character exhibited by red-vectored people is also reminiscent of fire or even an explosion: they are highly active, emotional, and impulsive. Finding it difficult to do the same thing for a long time, they instead prefer multitasking.
You can probably guess that this vector does not make for great students, though “advanced” red-vectored people are still capable of impressing those around them with their unusual education. After holding an intelligent, in-depth discussion of any topic for five minutes—on politics, economics, science, art, or anything else—the conversation is so gripping and energetic that people are left wondering, “Wow, such a smart, educated person! It’s a shame she had to run off so quickly…” And why did she? Well, she had nothing left to talk about.
Leaders who care about their team (family, company, and so on) often give thought to tomorrow, the day after, and even the distant future. Red-vectored people are rooted in what comes next, driven toward it and drawn by the promise of new ideas and grandiose plans.
Intrigued as they are by the future, red-vectored people cannot stand anything having to do with the past—history, past experiences (especially those of other people), the word “recommended,” and so on. They do not listen to anyone, they learn from their own mistakes, and they enjoy finding themselves in uncharted territory. We should take a moment to note here that red-vectored people learn from their mistakes instantly and do not repeat them, in contrast to many of the other vectors.
An important characteristic of the red vector is a thirst for first place—after all, alphas by definition are always out in front. A motto for them could be something like “better dead than second,” as they always want to be at the front of the line. If that position has already been taken, however (for example, if someone has already entrenched themselves as the leader), red-vectored people instantly lose interest.
Naturally, relegating a person like this to an assistant position is highly dangerous, as they will fight for the top of the totem pole even at the cost of the whole team’s work. They are also not built to be worker bees; instead, they are more comfortable thinking up new ideas, delegating them to others, and laying back while their plans are brought to fruition. After all, there are few things more relaxing than watching a burning flame, running water, or people working—a perfect description of the red vector.
If a red-vectored person dumps the blame on you, do not feel bad: you did nothing wrong, he just does not know any better.
they never miss a chance to show their bravery: going skydiving or bungee jumping; walking under overhangs without anything to keep them safe; skiing, driving, or riding their motorcycles as fast as they can; and so on. They choose the riskiest professions and hobbies (pilots, mountain climbers, stuntmen), and their lives are spent constantly flirting with death. “Nothing ventured, nothing gained” is a motto for all aspects of life, and adrenaline rushing through their veins is the biggest thrill on earth. That is why red-vectored people rarely die in their own homes; they generally fall prey to explosions, accidents, catastrophes, falls…
As you may have already guessed, the most important thing in the life of a red-vectored person is freedom. They would never submit to anyone, and their own system is always better than anyone else’s. Do not even think about disciplining them, as red-vectored children often announce to their parents something to the effect of, “I’m going to do what I want to do, no matter what.” It is no accident that children like that often run away from home, especially if they have strict parents.
There are no obstacles in the life of a red-vectored person, as the word “permission” is not in their vocabulary and minor inconveniences only stir them on to try harder.
Strict work schedules can sometimes make red-vectored people completely unproductive. They need more flexibility, something that is most often available for those working for themselves. Everything that infringes on their freedom feels like a trap they do their best to free themselves from as soon as possible.
If a red-vectored person is not in charge of her herd, she becomes a lone wolf—after all, they dislike working for other people.
It is important to remember that a passion for freedom is not the same thing as irresponsibility.
This kind of person often needs some compliments or even flattery (another form of fertilizer for the red vector, incidentally) to get themselves going.
The other side of the coin is that it kills red-vectored people when they have to praise others. After all, subconsciously (or consciously) they consider themselves the best and smartest, while complimenting someone else means acknowledging an equal and weakening their grip on the hierarchy in place.
Red-vectored people stand out in whatever job they choose for their burning ambition, conceit, pride, and thirst for power. If they fall short of their goals, they sometimes torment the people around them with all kinds of schemes and changes they never find time to fully implement.
Besides roles in management and politics, they enjoy extreme sports and risk-based professions that offer the opportunity to show off their derring-do: working as combat engineers, life-guards, and the like.
Red-vectored people also make excellent scientists and inventors, pioneering various areas in science and technology.
As soon as a red-vectored person gets a new idea lodged in his head, he dives right in and forgets about everything else.
If you ask a red-vectored adult about the work he has done in his lifetime, you will have a hard time believing the answer.
Of course, not many people with that lucky combination reach their full potential.
Many readers are probably wondering right now, “How do I turn the right vector on at the right time? How do I make sure my vectors help me instead of getting in the way? Sometimes, of course, you need to hurry right when your brown vector kicks in to slow you down… You need to clean up around the house, but you feel so lazy…”
There is only one tool that gives you control over your vectors, though that control is only indirect. Regardless, people who are equipped with it enjoy vectors that turn on right when they are needed, instead of the other way around. You are already familiar with that tool: acceptance. People who accept their natural vectors find that they automatically kick in just when they are most in demand. Need to do something physical? There goes your black vector. Need to understand something quickly? Here comes your red vector to the rescue. Have to finish something? That is a job for your brown vector. On the other hand, if your vectors are poorly or not at all accepted, they will pop their heads up at the worst possible moments to annoy you and make you unproductive.
Balanced red-vectored people often find luck to be squarely on their side. Even in the most unlikely situations—ones where others usually lose—they win or at least break even. They also tend to be carefree with their money even as they tend to find themselves with plenty of it if their vector is completely accepted.
Red-vectored people do not have a particular affinity for food, though they prefer more salt than others and tend to drink more than they eat.
Their behavior behind the wheel also reflects the main tendencies featured by the red vector: speed, freedom, and first place.
One more red-vector trait related to lifestyle and inattention to detail is a carelessness that starts at birth. It often looks like this type of person prefers living and working in utter chaos, with drawers and cabinets spilling out right into the middle of the room. However, regardless of the awful (creative) mess, red-vectored people know exactly where everything is.
Red-vectored people do not care about their appearance as long as they are wearing comfortable clothes. The freedom and independence they crave can pop up in little details of their clothing: an unbuttoned top button or unequally rolled-up sleeves for men or long red nails and bright red lipstick for women.
Red-vectored people do not give much thought to their own health, caring only once they are already sick.
Red-vectored people have one more problem complicating their lives: once they achieve a goal they have worked long and hard for and their long-awaited dream comes true, life becomes drab and boring. They no longer find pleasure in what they used to long for, even wondering what could possibly have once drawn them to it.
Love and sex
While red-vectored people tend to stand out in many areas, their sexual potential is particularly strong. Reproduction is crucial to a successful future, and the alpha has a subconscious urge to personally take part in that process. Among all the vectors, the red vector enjoys the strongest, even hypersexual potential. If a red-vectored man tries to have sex with a woman, it does not mean that he is in love with her or thinks she is an easy catch; he is simply programmed by nature to have sex with all women at least once.
Red-vectored people love experimenting with sex, trying everything they can in search of something new and unusual.
On the other hand, life in a family with two strongly red-vectored people is anything but tedious. Instead, it is a continuous battle for leadership that ranges from basic everyday issues (who will make coffee today) to how to steer their lives together. Sex for those two red-vectored people, on the other hand, is incomparable in its passion, emotion, and depth of feeling.
Brown-vectored people are gifted with the drive to complete everything they do. No matter what they start, they are never happy until they finish it; getting any satisfaction out of their work requires meeting this deep-seated need.
- This positive character trait makes brown-vectored people reliable and the best option for important, detailed work. The downside is that they will think up any excuse to stick with the original plan even if a changing situation necessitates a new direction.
- Another important quality of the brown vector is perfectionism. They never see any detail as unimportant. They are always prepared to devote a significant amount of time and energy to every last of them.
- Our daily life would benefit from having more people around us take this approach to their work, especially in the service industry.
- Brown-vectored perfectionism is already apparent even in children. Such a child may sit down to write a poem, doing their best to make it absolutely perfect.
- There is probably a point of equilibrium for everything in the world: brown-vectored people who are virtuosos in getting the job done (at the finish, in other words).
- Brown-vectored people are born with a powerful bent toward orderliness and cleanliness. Like the vector's other peculiarities, the culprit here is genetics, supplemented only to a limited degree by upbringing or lifestyle.
- No less important than cleanliness is the brown vector's need for orderliness and everything that goes with it (decency, regularity, and much more).
- Brown-vectored people love spending a lot of time sitting on the toilet, even into their adult years, so they try to make that area as cozy and comfortable as possible.
- The pursuit of tidiness leads to outstanding packing skills, making brown-vectored people the best packers on the planet. A talent for packing is perfect for making a hobby out of collecting things.
- Who besides brown-vectored people could so carefully collect, describe, and systematize a wide range of items (from stamps and bottle caps to antiques and old cars)? It is true: all honest-to-goodness collectors are brown-vectored.
- Brown-vectored people are especially careful about their food supplies. In the summer, they happily stock up, rationing what they have to empty their shelves just in time for the following summer to roll around.
- For the brown vector, the past is a brighter, happier place than the present and especially the future, which is why you may occasionally find yourself regaled by brown-vector stories of when the world was a better place.
- It is important to remember that the future holds no particular interest for brown-vectored people, enamored as they are with the past.
- To take that a step further, the future for them can often be somewhat frightening: while past facts can be carefully studied, systematized, and pigeonholed, the future is a black hole of unknowns that robs brown-vectored people of their trusty psychological tools.
- That fact is where the characteristic brown-vector fear of everything new comes from, leaving them only accepting of new things that are repackaged ideas from the "good old days."
- A brown-vectored person who thinks you are at fault about something will start nagging you with many accusations that can go on for quite a while, a period during which there is nothing you can say or do to change their mind.
- Even if you are already willing to admit your wrongdoing and ask how you can make up for it, the answer you receive is unequivocal: "You've done enough already."
- The conversation could last hours or weeks (significantly longer for domestic relationships) without the slightest sign of progress, spoiling any relationship—husband and wife, parent and child, or employer and employee.
- Incidentally, normal sadism (the desire to inflict physical pain on another person or an animal) also originates in deep-seated and unacknowledged brown-vector needs.
- None of the other vectors are as responsible as the brown one. Brown-vectored people keep their word and are responsible for sacrificing their time to do what they say they will do. You can rely on them when push comes to shove, as they are incredibly dependable friends.
- Brown-vectored people generally have a thick build with wide hips, exuding an overall sense of deep peace and firmness. While the clothes they wear may not always match, there is a certain neatness to every bit of their appearance, and the shoes they polish to a shine, their immaculately ironed shirts, and a lack of accessories all make it easy to spot them.
- Seeing someone carrying around two shoe brushes (one for dirt and the other for polish) is enough to convince you of their strong brown vector.
- They love wearing practical clothing and brown or other dark tones.
- What brown-vectored people love most of all, is square frames and tables, both tools that ooze tidiness and orderliness. It should come as no surprise that their favorite shape is the square.
- The brown vector is one of the most reliable for any relationship and, to a particular degree, in personal and family life. Brown-vectored people are remarkable for their faithfulness; long-term, deeply felt affection for their spouses and children; and strong sexual potential, though their natural reticence and shyness often keep those qualities hidden from those around them.
- Sometimes they do not even sense or recognize their sexuality until someone or something opens their eyes to that area of their lives.
- Inflicting pain on sexual partners is also characteristic of brown-vectored people, though that can mean anything from light slaps to full-fledged sadism. Still, brown-vector sadism keeps to what is by now for us a familiar pattern: cruelty followed by regret.
- Although brown-vectored people are naturally family-oriented, they still need a bit of a push even in this area.
- Brown-vectored people, knowing their inability to be fast or decisive, try to go through all the available options beforehand. They make plans for the future, do their best to stick to them exactly, and can be very upset when life throws them a curveball.
- As you already know, this vector is not known for openness toward others, though that is true mostly concerning strangers.
- No one is better than brown-vectored people for getting important things done, as their work meets even the strictest quality standards. As professionals, they prefer work that requires sitting and attention to detail (accountant, programmer, trucker), relating to the past (historian, archeologist, antiquity dealer, archivist, museum curator), detailed study (analytic, scientist), or systematizing things (manual or catalog author, librarian); or that has to do with justice(lawyer, investigator) or cleanliness. They also make great writers.
That unusual reaction to lactic acid explains the black vector’s primary peculiarity: heavy, monotonous physical labor brings it bodily pleasure.
Their love of hard labor would have them cutting the long way, while the bridges they build would at least run diagonally to the river in an attempt to make the job last longer.
Work, baby, work
Black-vectored people love work so much that they often unknowingly steal it from others. They are also bad at explaining to other people what to do, so they strongly prefer just doing it themselves.
Many are simply incapable of relaxing, feeling ill at ease on the weekends and uncomfortable on vacation—all they want to do is head back to the work they know and love. “The best vacation is a new job,” they would say, having a hard time imagining what it would be like to lay on the couch or on a beach.
More power to the muscles
Black-vectored people, who prefer working with their hands, do their best not to overload their minds, as the former is much more pleasant to exert than the latter.
Black-vectored people make very good craftsmen, and their handiwork makes it even more difficult to call them stupid or unintelligent.
Creator or destroyer?
If this vector is fully accepted and realized, there is no one more physically healthy than black-vectored people. Even beyond that, they are also psychologically healthy, being stable, reliable, and loyal. They are the kind of people who never let you down. Look around you—everything you see was made by black-vectored hands or machines that were also made (but not invented!) by them.
A view toward the inside
Black-vectored people are intrigued by their own insides and that of others, both literally and figuratively. In its positive iteration (when the vector is accepted), this interest leads to eastern philosophy and religion, meditation, and deep study of the internal world. Negatively (when the vector is in neurosis), this interest turns to a primitive question: “What do his insides look like?”
Character and habits
Black-vectored people are introverts and phlegmatics, marked by their reliability, modesty, perseverance, and self-control. They are trusting in how they relate to people, with a firm devotion those around them sometimes exploit.
They are also characterized by a collective mentality that has them only rarely talking about themselves as a singular entity: instead of “I,” they often use “we” to include those around them.
As you recall, brown-vectored people also have trouble making choices, though after agonizing for a while they do ultimately make a final decision.
Black-vectored people are very conservative, having once built a picture of something that should never change.
Back to the womb
Black-vectored people do their best to recreate that sensation in their own lives: they love being in crowds, living and working in tight spaces, playing team sports, participating in huge events, and taking public transportation during rush hour.
Work and careers
Black-vectored people happily spend many years doing the same job, valuing as they do stability, a friendly environment, honesty, and simple communication. The black vector is the most loyal of all the vectors, making them dedicated to and prepared to sacrifice much for their companies.
Ultimately, black-vectored people prefer professions related to: physical labor (worker, builder, athlete), the earth and nature (farmer, veterinarian), working with their hands (craftsman, production line worker), death (worker at the morgue, a cemetery, or a slaughterhouse), and the military (enlisted soldier).
black-vectored people often suffer from accidental and self-inflicted injuries like walking into a pole on their way down the street.
Appearance and other features
Black-vectored people enjoy their physical endowments by playing with their muscles and popping their joints, engendering responses from those around them that range from fear to admiration.
An important feature of the black vector is a heavy-set face that includes all of a large nose, enormous eyes, and a wide mouth.
Typical black-vectored people speak in a boring monotone. For them conversation is less about communication (their own body is enough for them) and more about exchanging information: “Pass the salt.” “Here you go.” And there the conversation finishes…
Body contact during conversation is important to black-vectored people: if you want them to remember what you are about to say, touch their hands.
Living in silence
blue-vectored people have incredibly cold biochemistry: their heartbeat is barely audible, their breathing is shallow, and they do not snort, slurp, pass gas, or make any other bodily noises. They are “frozen” people…
Blue-vectored people constantly suppress their emotions in an attempt to prevent any unnecessary noises from popping out.
Intellect and memory
Blue-vectored people also have a great memory: what they hear sticks with them straight through to the end of their lives. On the other hand, their memory is unique in that it is similar to a tape recorder.
Sounds from heaven
They are incredibly weather-sensitive, having a presentiment of meteorological changes and many other natural events long before they ever happen.
Appearance and other features
Blue-vector ears always stand out in a crowd: they may be oversized, stick out, or be unusually shaped.
Blue-vectored people are generally slender, and sometimes even frail. Their deeply set eyes and half-closed eyelids help them narrow the stream of visual information they receive and focus on what they can hear. Their movements are very smooth, their body somewhat limp, their posture slumped (it looks like they have a rubber spine), and their body language and gestures minimal.
Blue-vectored people dress plainly, preferring dark (gray and blue) tones. Once in a while, however, they do dress stylishly and elegantly (though never loudly). They speak softly and slowly, with a voice that is similar to a quiet brook—sometimes they even put those around them to sleep (or hypnotize them).
Blue-vector handwriting is fairly original, with letters that are elongated (sometimes looking like a treble clef) and often slanted backwards. Blue-vectored people cannot handle alcohol well and are usually indifferent to cigarettes. Their favorite colors are different shades of blue, while their favorite shape is the hourglass.
Love and sex
Their love is platonic, though, in contrast with their green-vectored friends, blue-vectored people experience emotions more deeply than the other vectors.
Professions and work
Their powerful intellect lets them work in a wide variety of fields requiring smarts and knowledge, while their excellent hearing opens the door for them to work as musicians and poets. Having a blue vector does not guarantee an unusual musical talent, though everyone with an ear for music is without a doubt blue-vectored. Blue-vectored people can also use their outstanding aural memory to study language—many of them go on to become excellent polyglots.
The blue vector needs complete peace and quiet with no distractions if it wants to get work done. The ideal option is a computer, which is why many programmers and system administrators fit the description of this vector.
It is important to note that the blue vector is the only one not motivated by money. Creating the right conditions for blue-vectored people and promoting their intellectual or creative product lets them put together fantastic projects worth fabulous sums, though they are unable to promote themselves.
Blue-vectored people are classic melancholies. Shy, timid, quiet, reserved, compliant, and delicate, their natural bashfulness eliminates practically all the desire they might have for career status or belongings. They are kind and wise, treating the people around them with understanding and grace.
Blue-vectored people can sense other people’s character and state of mind by listening to their voice, so be sincere when you talk to them.
They make good, reliable friends who can keep secrets and are not arrogant. Their only weakness is their thoughtlessness: sometimes blue-vectored people draw so far inside themselves that they do not notice when people are offended or even start to cry.
A shrill world on the inside
Blue-vectored people who delve deep into themselves sometimes think they are the center of a World of Sounds, with noises hurtling at them from all sides. That leads to an interesting tendency: “I am the Center of the World of Sounds” → “I am the Center of the World” → “I am the Center” → “I…” (egocentrism31).
If the violet vector is not accepted, people like this are complete narcissists and misanthropes (people who hate other people) walking around with disdain written all over their faces.
Following their gut
All violet-vectored people dream of finding their favorite scent, one they long ago smelled or perhaps simply imagined. And if they find it, they will do anything to stay close to it.
Violet-vectored instigators are not even capable of finding a worm to catch a fish with; instead, they feed off the troop.
Living in a smelly world
Imagine a violet-vectored child riding a hot bus: his nose would be right at waist level with the red- and black-vectored men around him. That is why children like that barely breathe when taking public transportation, preferring oxygen starvation. If they are on their way to class, they will have a hard time collecting their thoughts until they have had a chance to “catch their breath” a few hours later.
Violet-vectored people have no need for luxury in their lives—all they need is normal comfort (secretly managing other people is luxury enough for them). Their favorite color, of course, is violet, and their favorite shape is the zigzag. However, they are too concerned about keeping their vector hidden to wear violet-colored clothes.
Sometimes the love they have for their own scent turns pathological.
Professions and work
Violet-vectored people are curious, if very careful. At work their curiosity takes on an intellectual flavor, while their interests and abilities cast a wide net: perfumers and chemists; meteorologists and psychologists; special agents, customs inspectors, and ecologists; parodists and satirists; and diplomats and informants (“rats”—Viktor Tolkachev said that ratting out other people is a way of taking revenge on the stinking members of the troop). The sommelier35 profession is especially interesting.
Violet-vectored people are the top-notch advisors and assistants who stand behind red-vectored leaders—though they despise them for the way they reek of power, they still need them. After all, violet-vectored people can only implement their ideas through a red-vectored leader.
Violet-vectored people familiarize themselves with new people using their nose. If they do not like their new friend’s smell, they will have nothing to do with her personally or professionally (no matter how valuable she could be). Never lie to violet-vectored people.
Violet-vectored children are master manipulators. Even at a young age they can push the buttons of their parents, caretakers, and teachers.
Appearance and other features
Violet-vectored people are usually thin, and they do their best to dress plainly (they are reminiscent of their blue-vectored friends in this area). Their faces can be haughty and somewhat contemptuous: the corners of their mouths are a bit turned down, while their eyes are lightly squinted. Their most important feature, of course, is their nose, which can be large or unusually shaped.
When possible, violet-vectored people leave doors cracked behind them,
Violet-vector humor is sharp and sometimes malicious: irony, satire, and sarcasm. People like this love groups where everyone laughs at each other’s expense—that happens to also be the only place you can crack a joke about a violet-vectored person without worrying about the consequences.
Love and sex
The violet vector’s sexual potential is far from high, though it depends to a large degree on the partner’s scent. If that scent is neutral, the potential is very low; if it is unpleasant, the potential is zero (or even negative).
When violet-vectored people fall in love with their partner’s smell, there is no going back. Beat them, kick them, make fun of them—they will go nowhere.
Ready or not…well, the violet vector is always ready
If violet-vectored people start quitting at your company, give some thought to the fact that it might be time for you to pack your bags as well. They sense financial and political crises ahead of time, keeping their nose to the wind and making sure nothing catches them by surprise.
Character and balance
When their vector is realized and satisfied, violet-vectored people are fairly pleasant and interesting to talk to. They are highly intellectual (almost to a blue-vector level), have a well-developed thought process, and wield an impressive intuition.
Violet-vectored people rarely play sports, preferring to stay away from the strong, unpleasant odors that always come with them.
One more thing about smells
Violet-vectored people sometimes subconsciously take on foreign scents: having spent some time chatting with someone, they notice that a little while later they begin to smell like that person.
Pleasures of the skin
Orange-vectored people loved being gently stroked, especially on their back between their shoulder blades—they could sit for hours enjoying the sensation. Since it can be difficult to find someone willing to keep them happy from morning till night, however, they try to extend the feeling by growing their hair out, tying it back, and letting it gently graze their back
Orange-vectored people produce excess endorphins, not to eliminate the pain entirely, but instead due to a connection between pain and deep psychological pleasure.
If this vector is suppressed (not accepted), the person can exhibit a masochistic complex that hunts for both physical and emotional suffering. In the worst case scenario, orange-vectored neurosis, that suffering becomes an entire lifestyle. For example, an orange-vectored girl might purposely marry a man who does not love her, spending her life miserable in that marriage. She might also look for a profession that does not suit her in the least, ending up just as miserable in the workplace. Even worse, people for whom this vector is in neurosis sometimes suffer from skin sores that look awful and itch constantly.
Dissatisfied orange-vectored people simply cannot be happy, as they are the “professionally unfortunate.” Just try taking away their unhappiness and watch how they fight to hang onto it!
Biorhythms and time
Orange-vectored people have precise biorhythms, with all the biochemical processes in their bodies steady and regular. They are chronometer-esque with their intuitive sense of time even without access to a clock.
How do you find the orange-vectored person in a crowd? Ask a few people to close their eyes and raise their hand when they think a minute has passed. Red-vectored people will be first (at approximately the 30-second mark), as they are always in a hurry to rush on ahead of everyone else. Last will be methodical, slow-paced brown-vectored people (they will raise their hands about 1.5—2 minutes later) who are content to watch the world pass them by. However, if you see anyone raise their hand in exactly one minute (give or take), they are orange-vectored. Wondering what happened to your black-vectored friends? They are probably asleep by now…
Numbers and savings
Orange-vectored people are not only human clocks; they are also human calculators with a fanatical passion for numbers. Everything gets counted, from stairs to the number of cars in a freight train. They know exactly how much money they have in their wallets down to the last penny.
Red-vectored people are generally clueless: they always have a few wrinkled, differently denominated bills in their wallets they have forgotten about.
Orange-vectored people love doing the counting and measuring themselves, though they also never pass up a chance to double-check those around them—seeing how good their math is and at the same time keeping them honest.
One more thing orange-vectored people enjoy doing regardless of their financial condition is visiting different stores to compare prices.
Key words for them are “sale” and “cheap,” with many companies running marketing campaigns aimed squarely at orange-vectored people.
Orange-vectored people take their property very seriously, subconsciously treating it as an extension of their own bodies. That is why taking something of theirs even temporarily can seriously discomfit them.
As you can probably guess, orange-vectored children dislike sharing their toys. They do often agree to temporary trades, though they are sure to take into account the relative value of the goods at stake: handing over a bike for the chance to play with a shovel will probably not cut it.
Orange-vectored people serve as the supply agents in the system (family), making sure there is always backup ready. That backup comes in handy during tough times when beggars cannot be choosers and we have to use whatever we have. People with an imbalanced orange vector keep spares that would last through a fifth and sixth life, something that differentiates them from the frugal brown vector.
Orange-vectored people are the ones who make pancakes with the cheapest flour they can find, even if they have to go through and pick out the worms first.
This vector loves finding and jumping on freebies, though they should not be confused with just anything that is free: orange-vectored people know very well that there is no such thing as a free lunch. Finding an honest-to-goodness freebie takes a sharp wit, or being in the right place at the right time.
Orange-vectored children are always on the prowl for things they can find a use for at home, and they are always more than happy to pocket things that are poorly hidden: someone else’s toy, for example.
If orange-vectored people do not get through their “collector” stage in childhood with balance and acceptance, they can turn to kleptomania (a habit of minor theft) as adults.
Orange-vectored people generally do not give flowers—why spend so much money on something that will be dead tomorrow?
Orange-vectored people think the best present is an envelope full of cash.
Orange-vectored people can be completely serious when they give their children a nickel and tell them to go buy whatever they want.
Orange-vectored people stuff themselves when visiting friends, even if they are on a diet at home. They sometimes even bring a bag or container with them to take home what they cannot eat there.
Orange-vectored people love computers and especially the Recycle Bin, which is a place to send “deleted” things that are never really deleted. Accidentally clicking “Empty Recycle Bin” is the same for them as accidentally reformatting their hard drive.
Appearance and habits
Long hair tied back into a ponytail is typical for the orange vector, and even for orange-vectored men.
Balanced orange-vectored people have very sensitive, velvety skin, and they love stroking it and their hair. In stressful situations they often scratch themselves.
Orange-vectored people enjoy contrast showers, swimming in icy water, acupuncture, and acupressure mats. They are also big fans of crossword puzzles, all kinds of logic games, and training people (their own family, their own children, or other people’s children).
Their handwriting is small and scrunched, with sharp characters.
While black-vectored people live in constant contact with their bodies, orange-vectored people feel the same about the world around them (they sense it through their skin). Balanced orange-vectored people live healthy lives and love all different types of exercise, from jogging to rhythmic gymnastics to even yoga.
Orange-vectored people and their highly sensitive skin cannot stand creased sheets or crumbs in the bed.
Some orange-vectored men prefer to shave frequently, even twice a day, as they find it to be great for their skin.
They love taking showers, and especially contrast showers (note that red-vectored people prefer baths or pools, where there is much more water).
Orange-vectored people adore massages, though instead of deep tissue massages they like superficial ones that are only skin-deep (black-vectored people are the ones who prefer strong, deep massages where the masseuse “adjusts your spine via your stomach”).
Many orange-vectored people love cats, which are pleasant to the touch even when short-haired. The most important ditch to avoid, however, is “old cat lady” syndrome: they lived long and happy lives, dying on the same day.
Orange-vectored people are generally not charitable, convinced as they are that free hand-outs are evil. They also find it very difficult to give bribes, though they have fewer qualms accepting them.
Orange-vectored people are human clocks, so discipline for them is a joy. The organization they instill in all areas of their lives is the envy of the other vectors, and especially the red vector.
Orange-vectored people do their best to make sure everyone on earth knows how to behave. Their favorite words and phrases are “have to,” “required,” and “rules.” People like that are fanatically committed to the idea of duty: “duty above all.”
Professions and the workplace
The main advantage orange-vectored people enjoy is a stunning sense of logic they can apply to widely varying areas of their lives. They are drawn to all professions related to numbers and money: mathematician, cashier, accountant, economist, financier, and so on.
Among other professions and hobbies they prefer sports that focus on endurance and accuracy: marathons, fencing, biathlon, rhythmic gymnastics, figure skating, ballet, and ballroom dancing. They are also often found at supervisory and inspection agencies working as controllers, auditors, epidemiologists, epidemic response station workers, fire prevention specialists, and tax specialists.
People with a weak red vector and strong orange vector are not big earners. Red-vectored people are the ones who take risks, investing all their money, losing it, earning some more, investing their new savings, and finally raking in a fortune. Orange-vectored people never risk everything; they spread their money across different accounts in different banks, losing a little here, gaining a little there, and in the end coming out with modest, if guaranteed growth.
Love and sex
Orange-vectored people have middling sexual potential. If their vector is not satisfied, they may fall hopelessly in love, perhaps with someone from a book or one of their friends’ partners.
Marriage to a person like this, of course, is built on calculations: orange-vectored people may hold off on a marriage for a week to see if anything better turns up. Prenuptial agreements are obviously the great masterpiece of the orange vector.
Relating to people
Orange-vectored people care deeply about what the people around them think, and they spend inordinate amounts of time and energy making sure their families meet social standards and fit within social frameworks. “What will the neighbors think?!” is something an orange-vectored mother or grandmother might say.
Friendships with orange-vectored people are built on usefulness, and they end once that usefulness is exhausted
Another way orange-vectored people manipulate others is by insisting on helping, only to later call in that favor: “Here, let me help you. I don’t mind, and you look like you could really use it.” You feel pressured to accept, but a couple weeks later your orange-vectored friend comes over and says, “You remember what I did for you?! Do you have any idea what it cost me?!”
Dissatisfied orange-vectored people love complaining about their lives: “all the other lines are moving faster” or “all the good produce always runs out right when I get there.”
Yellow-vectored people also have good taste perception, meaning that they can select a cut of meat at the store and already know how it will taste once cooked.
yellow-vectored people may not like salads made by other people, as real salads are works of art made up of a precise fusion of tastes
Many yellow-vectored people love sweets, some prefer spicy foods, and others go for more exotic dishes. More than anything, however, yellow-vectored people love meat! Their favorite is meat roasted to rare perfection.
Of course, yellow-vectored people, from children to adults, love biting.
Yellow-vectored people enjoy satisfying their taste buds with a variety of delicious foods. However, that still leaves their tactile receptors needing pleasure.
All major companies have that one employee who is always wandering around looking for someone to talk to.
yellow-vectored people are so passionate about talking, it is nearly impossible for them to keep government, corporate, or personal secrets
Yellow-vector talkativeness has nothing to do with how loyal yellow-vectored people are or are not to those around them; they might very well want to keep a corporate secret for their favorite company. The problem is that their tongue works faster than their brain, making it just too easy to spill the beans to a “random” acquaintance over a meal.
When speaking, they are identical, both energetic and inspirational like true leaders. But! Red-vectored people follow speech with action (they may not complete that action, but that is a separate issue), while yellow-vectored people head straight to a meal.
Professions and the workplace
Nature itself made the yellow vector perfect for working with food, and so yellow-vectored people are excellent chefs, tasters, and sommeliers (the violet vector’s sense of smell is important for that last one).
Yellow-vectored people also make fantastic facilitators, as they are capable of motivating many people to do a variety of things—including getting them to make purchases.
Appearance and other features
Yellow-vectored people are rarely slender, more often finding themselves with an average or somewhat heavier build (being significantly overweight, incidentally, can be a sign of yellow-vector neurosis). They have large, nimble mouths, while their puffy, sensitive lips sometimes hide the most distinctive yellow-vector trait there is: protruding canines.
Yellow-vectored children are always trying to express themselves. Their verbal intellect is their superpower, and they even think better while talking.
It is important to remember that yellow-vectored children do not really lie; they just make things up.
Yellow-vectored children are fast learners when it comes to languages, and are especially good at speaking (brown-vectored students are the ones who have the grammar down pat). They are great at memorizing things so long as they have the chance to speak them out loud.
Character and habits
Yellow-vectored people are extroverts and optimists. They are kind-hearted and generous, though careless and irresponsible (speak first; think later).
A fantastic sense of humor is second nature to yellow-vectored people, who, when in their element, are like rays of sunshine warming those around them.
Their favorite color, of course, is yellow, and their favorite shape is the oval.
Once the mood turns sour, however, remember that yellow-vectored people are the first to panic.
Yellow-vectored people are only able to work when they are a little bit hungry
Yellow-vectored people are deliberate and easy-going when it comes to alcohol: taste and variety are much more important than alcohol content and quantity.
Their handwriting is large and sprawling, with words that look especially like horizontal spirals (springs) when you look at them upside down
Love and sex
The yellow vector offers below-average sexual potential. Their favorite part of sex is the kissing, which they are happy to do over every inch of their partner’s body. Yellow-vectored men love talking about sex and boasting about their conquests, though in reality they have little to brag about. Oral sex, on the other hand, is right up their alley; the problem is everything else.
Most of all they love gazing at beauty, or the harmony of colors and shapes. We can even take that one step further and say that beauty is to them as meat is to yellow-vectored people.
Compliments for them are more than a formality; they are the nutrients they (both men and women) need for survival.
Green-vectored people are mostly helpless in everyday life: they have no idea what to do in tough situations, and so they need help and protection from the people around them.
Exhibitionism can be sexual (the kind of people who crawl out from behind bushes with their pants around their ankles), though most often it is non-sexual: any kind of self-demonstration or attempt to attract attention to one’s self (models, actors, and the entire show business).
Green-vectored people try to decorate everything around them in their everyday lives, making it attractive and memorable.
The green vector is the most emotional of the eight vectors, given that tears are a way of activating its significant zone in lieu of other stimulations. Some green-vectored women love breaking into tears at the slightest provocation, making one up if they cannot find anything suitable.
Incidentally, green-vectored people are also prone to tears of happiness. And it is not only scenes from movies or incidents in their life that does it for them: some men can get teary-eyed just looking at the powerful beauty of nature.
Some green-vectored people believe in omens, others in horoscopes, and still more in fortune-telling. Regardless, they have one thing in common: they all live in expectation of a miracle.
Green-vectored people are imagination-driven dreamers with fantasies sometimes so strong that they are indistinguishable from real life.
Their internal make-up is so fine-tuned that they can sense vibrations other people cannot. They get subtle signals from the information field about events in the future (or those occurring right now, but on the other side of the planet).
Green-vectored men are gentle, sensitive, and vulnerable, capable of deep sympathy and empathy. They are preoccupied with the way they look and love beautiful things, though without the brown vector that has nothing to do with homosexuality.
The green vector has been blessed genetically with strong intellectual potential. Green-vectored people have wide-reaching knowledge of a variety of areas, though, in contrast to their red-vectored friends, they rarely make great discoveries.
Green-vectored people have excellent visual memory, meaning they can see a picture and imprint it indelibly in their extensive “filing cabinet.”
If things turn out differently, green-vectored people risk becoming unrecognized geniuses who create only for themselves.
Green-vectored people are sometimes so impractical that they have a hard time applying their intellect to life’s everyday situations.
Love and sex
The green vector only has a very low sexual potential
Sex for many green-vectored people is an ugly, unnecessary process they are willing to do anything to avoid. Green-vectored women often discuss this problem with their psychologists. Rolling their eyes and sighing aloud, they tell their awful tale: “My husband is a sexual maniac! He wants to have sex twice a month!”
Green-vectored people prefer tender kisses on the eyes to all other forms of sexual attention. They also might mount a mirror on their bedroom ceiling to be aroused by looking at their own naked body.
Appearance and habits
Recognizing green-vectored people is never all that difficult, as their attractive, put-together appearance makes them stand out in a crowd. Whether they stay up to date on the latest whims of fashion or simply develop their own style, the way they look is impressive.
Green-vectored people are thrown into a panic over even the smallest stain on their clothes, and would never wear other people’s clothes.
Obviously, their favorite color is green, and their favorite shape is the circle.
Green-vector handwriting is beautiful and refined, like how the best girls at school write: letters are rounded, capital letters have curlicues or other decorations, and signatures are works of art.
Green-vectored people speak brightly, emotionally, and even theatrically, with an abundance of facial expressions and gestures. Their impressions of other people are spot-on.
They have great memories and can go back and relive anything that happened in their life by finding any old trinket that reminds them of it.
When it comes to alcohol, green-vectored people are lightweights. They attract even more attention when drunk, sometimes even stripping off their clothes in public.
Professions and work
It goes without saying that green-vectored people are first and foremost actors. However, there are not enough jobs for them all, so the rest often set up theaters in their own lives (at home or at work).
They are talented artists, sculptors (if they have a black vector), photographers, designers, modellers, stylists, makeup artists, barbers, museum attendants, tour guides (if they have a yellow vector), and cameramen.
Green-vectored doctors give excellent, accurate diagnoses, as they can see diseases by their micro-symptoms. They are generally ophthalmologists, radiologists, diagnosticians, or nurses (“sister of mercy” is perfect for the green-vector character).
Green-vectored people also make excellent teachers at schools and kindergartens: they get along well with children, though they can sometimes get pushed around.
Kindness will save the world
Out of all the eight vectors, green-vectored people are the kindest. They are philanthropic, hospitable, tactful, and friendly, and they never forget anyone’s birthday. Other people’s attitudes, opinions, and health are always given close attention.
Green-vectored people can empathize with and make sense of other people’s emotions as if they were their own, and their kindness makes them great shoulders to cry on.
The finer points of communication
The green vector prefers physically talking from a distance: in comparison with the general norm for personal space, they take another half step away from the person they are speaking with.
Green-vectored people attach strong value to looking the other person in the eye when they are talking.
Green-vectored people could never squish a worm, chicks who have fallen out of their nest reduce them to tears, and they will spend any amount of time to save a fly who fell into some milk.
green-vectored people will do anything for attention. If their normal methods are not working, they may decide to try a “show suicide.”
Children with this vector need to be surrounded by pleasing shapes and colors. They also need to feel constantly protected: green-vectored babies should not spend more than 24 hours away from their mothers.
Green-vectored boys are just as sensitive and gentle as green-vectored girls, as tears are their first reaction to the problems life throws up in their path.
Green-vectored boys generally hang around women: their mother, sister, or grandmother, for example. They prefer sitting at home sewing to taking apart a carburetor with their father.
Green-vectored children can lay on the couch doing nothing for hours. Their parents may think they are just lazy, but the truth is they are deep inside their rich imagination.
