                                   and posttraumatic growth    The Theory of Positive Disintegration;  

is a novel approach to personality development.The theory is a forerunner of what today is called post-traumatic growth.

Development potential

Advanced development is often seen in people who exhibit strong developmental potential ("DP"). Developmental potential represents a constellation of genetic features, expressed and mediated through environmental interaction. Many factors are incorporated in developmental potential but three major aspects are highlighted: overexcitability (OE), specific abilities and talents, and a strong drive toward autonomous growth, a feature Dąbrowski called the "third factor"

Like my mom always told me " your the stubbornest person "

Post-traumatic growth (PTG) or benefit finding is positive psychological change experienced as a result of adversity and other challenges in order to rise to a higher level of functioning.[1] These circumstances represent significant challenges to the adaptive resources of the individual, and pose significant challenges to their way of understanding the world and their place in it.[1] Posttraumatic growth involves "life-changing" psychological shifts in thinking and relating to the world, that contribute to a personal process of change, that is deeply meaningful.[1]


The theory of positive disintegration (TPD) by Kazimierz Dąbrowski is a theory of personality development. Unlike mainstream psychology, Dąbrowski's theoretical framework views psychological tension and anxiety as necessary for growth. These "disintegrative" processes are therefore seen as "positive", whereas people who fail to go through positive disintegration may remain for their entire lives in a state of "primary integration", lacking true individuality. Advancing into disintegration and into the higher levels of development is predicated on having developmental potential, including overexcitabilities, above-average reactions to stimuli.

Unlike some other theories of development such as Erikson's stages of psychosocial development, it is not assumed that even a majority of people progress through all levels. TPD is not a theory of stages, and levels do not correlate with age.

          I think it important to have a good understanding of Theory of mind , as good many people don't see world as you do.

                   1. Understanding many,many people are " Self-Agenda " types, thus don't have your best interest in mind.

                                     I personally see the world in a " Big Picture " way, thus a lot to take in ,process

             Thus Multi-tasking don't work , for me, as it interrupts me. I have complete a task fully completely or else,I'll be stuck worrying

              it is not done. I agree with Iain McGilchrist , in that we live in world that is now ;

                                                           Left hemisphere dominated thinking

                                                  Big-Picture thinking it likely going on or directed by Right hemisphere
