Carol Tuttle's Beauty Profiling system is based on helping women identify their primary Type, which is essentially based on the elements: Air, Water, Fire and Earth, and their corresponding shapes and movement.
1/3 Warm Spring
1/2 Light Spring
1/4 Clear Spring
2/4 Cool Summer
2/1 Light Summer
2/3 Soft Summer
3/4 Deep Autumn
3/2 Soft Autumn
4/2 Cool Winter
4/3 Deep Winter
4/1 Clear Winter
This correlation of DYT and the 12 Seasonal Palettes is purely hypothetical and not endorsed by either system.
In the ancient Chinese system of Feng Shui, there are 5 Elements: Water, Fire, Earth, Metal, Wood (note: no Air). Metal is probably a cross between Type 1 and 4 in DYT. And Wood gets subsumed into Earth or T4.

- Essential Energy (ESSENCE) is unconsciously expressed. It is the energetic lens through which you see the world, the assimilation of your core (driving force), character (emotional nature), and conduct (way of being) – the unique "essence"... that is you.
- Intentional Energy (INTENTION) is consciously created. It is the energy attached to what you have "in mind" to be, do and have.
- Visual Energy (APPEARANCE) is physically transmitted. It is the vibrational pattern created by "how you look," influenced by the energies inherent in your physical coloring and body shape, and the colors, patterns, textures, fabrics and silhouettes of the clothes you wear.
