In this, the final article on a ten article series article on the Emergence "Social Priority Scale," we look at how understanding the human experiences of personal "neediness" and distraction could change how we experience our world at large. We also recap the concepts and posit some benefits at large.
A Brief Recap of the Concepts
Begin by reminding yourself of what is in the left column of a Social Priority Chart; the four "character types."
What are the four character types?
Named by the year of life in which the person's character type formed, a "one," a "two," a "three" and a "four." And said in terms of whose needs feel important to the person, a "me," a "you," a "me then you," and a "you then me."
These are the four ways we feel the need to give and get, the four ways we experience our own and other peoples' needs.
Next, remind yourself of what is in the right column of a Social Priority Chart; the four "social priorities?"
What are the four social priorities?
 comfort / sensation,  neatness / things,  understanding / ideas, and  freedom / no rules.
And what do these four words represent?
First, they represent the essence of the four ways babies learn to sense their world, and from this perspective, we could say, we are seeing these four experiences as our "sensations" of human nature.
This first view is the "sensual person's priority": comfort.
Second, they represent the essence of the four things which distract babies most during each of these four times, those times wherein babies have yet to master these four experiences. Here, we are seeing these experiences as "things" about human nature.
This second view is the "organized person's priority": neatness.
Third, they represent the four concepts babies focus most on mastering during each of their four basic developmental times. From this view, we are seeing these four experiences as our "ideas" about human nature.
This third view is the "conceptual person's priority"; understanding.
Fourth, they represent the four developmental "need experiences" babies go through between birth and about age four.
This time we are seeing these experiences as the "rules" of human nature.
This fourth view is the "willful person's priority": freedom.
Finally, we can also see these four experiences as the four places babies can get stuck in learning. And when this happens to a baby to an extreme degree, then,  comfort / sensation,  neatness / things,  understanding / ideas, and  freedom / no rules become  Kanner's Autism,  OCD / OCPD,  Asperger's Syndrome, and  ADD; the four main childhood developmental-learning diseases.
How Do We Get This Information?
For a skilled emergence Practitioner, gathering this information can take all of about a half an hour or so. However, at the risk of discouraging people, please know, learning to do this can take quite a while. Why?
Mainly because you must first learn to create the questions, and second, be able to discern the person's state at the time you ask these questions.
At first then, creating Social Priority questions may seem quite obvious and direct, and sometimes it is. In fact, we plan on having some sample question sets elsewhere on the site. Even so, people often interpret words very differently. Thus, asking people if they would rather be comfortable or smart can quite effectively discern between comfort and understanding for most people. But while asking these same people whether they would rather have a new bedroom or a new library may be equally as clear to them, it may also be so vague as to simply confuse them.
A new bedroom could be interpreted as having a new, comfortable bed (comfort). It could also be seen as a new, well arranged living space (neatness). Further, someone might see the library as giving them many new chances to learn (understanding). Then too, they may interpret this library as similar to the second choice in the new bedroom question; as a new, well arranged living space (neatness).
Discerning peoples' Character Types can also take skill. First, you must be able to tell if the person is in a clear or inverted state; second, whether the question truly addresses who the person feels first urges to get from or give to.
How hard is learning to do this? It's not hard really. It just takes some time to learn to adjust the questions to the person you ask.
And my point for saying all this?
The last thing I'd want to promote in the world is another way for people to blame or discredit each other. Thus, like all things done with love, it takes being clear and conscious, and connected to the other, to really do it well.
