A Theory of Personality, Emotional Intelligence, and Survival
A Manual of Personality and Emotional Intelligence Enhancement
S-Theory is the first new theory of personality of the 21st century, coming into existence almost 50 years since the last major theory of such was introduced. S-Theory is the first major theory to come into existence that also defines and explains emotional intelligence. For us as a human species to productively change from our frequent cyclic tendencies toward violence, greed, and oft-accompanying ruin (expressed through the recurrent rise and fall of civilizations), we must develop motivation to change—motivation induced through knowledge. S-Theory allows such motivation to usher forth in readers by explaining, and allowing a revolutionary new understanding of, what we call personality and emotional intelligence—the essence of what makes us (and other life forms) up. It explains how such developed and evolved (with particular emphasis to human functioning). Understanding S-Theory will allow the reader to evaluate the level of personality and emotional intelligence they (or others) possess—in functional easy-to-measure behavioral terms. Such theory will also allow the reader a clear perception of what adaptive and maladaptive behavior is, how these develop, and how to change them (if desired). It is hoped by the author that the knowledge brought forth from within this manuscript will arouse in the reader an epiphany of awareness—and lead to arousal of motivation sufficient enough to create productive individual change, leading to ultimate enhancement of future human (and non-human) survival on earth.
