Basic principles of psychology

PARI Profile System™ is created in accordance with the basic principles of psychology, according to which a human being is not one specific type, but instead has a unique and individual personality that can share traits with others.

The basic psychological principles of Freud are based on the assumption that another state of consciousness exists besides from the one of conscious thinking; a subconscious state, normally referred to as the Principle of the Id. It is a combination of the different human needs, desires and instincts (in PARI Profile Systems referred to as "basic personality").

Psychologists claim that The State of the Ego still conflicts with the State of the Id, and that a third state exists. One that is not real in itself but is a result of the admonitions, prohibitions and influences that have brought the person up to be a civilized human being. This is referred to as The State of the Super-ego (in PARI Profile Systems it is apparent from "the relationship to the outside world").

According to Freud’s psychoanalysis, the State of the Ego is in constant conflict with the unconscious or semi-conscious Principle of the Id. The State of the Ego is always affected by the Principle of the Id to which the person cannot respond fully. For most people, this conflict means that they are not living in full harmony, but is continuously forced to question why they feel, think and act the way they do.

For the people who know the psychological model of communication; the transaction analysis which has three ego-states is: The Child = basic personality, the Adult = rational capability of decisive action, and the Parent = relationship to the outside world, in PARI Profile Systems and are identical with PARI’s basic structure.

Another basic psychological interpretation of human beings is the one of C.G. Jung, who presented his typology (a series of typical, basic traits in people based on archetypes) in the first half of the last century, and characterized that which is the basis of the actions of human beings. Some people get from the point of sensing to the point of acting via logical consideration and others primarily via emotions and intuition. For most people, this will be a combination, which is described in further detail in PARI Profile Systems’ "method of action".

PARI Profile Systems™ describes how each individual person behaves. Not to judge whether this behaviour is right or wrong, but because it is important that people are aware of their actions. Through better awareness of the actions and underlying thoughts and emotions, we can better take responsibility for deciding when the action is appropriate or not, depending on the situation.
