Here's how I compare Paulos Recognition to DYT Types

Starting with the most YIN and moving to the most YANG, one goes from T2, T1, T4 to T3.

Type 2 Water (yin-yin):  First with T2, the most Yin, associated with Water in DYT.  Paulos associates Water with Curve-Circle types, which means intense gaze (abstract intuition) and yin features showing sensitivity, can be any face shape.  The most yin curve-circle is the Possibilitarian, which is in curve circle wave (all yin).  They are 1 in 80,000 women, relatively rare compared to some other types.  [Next is the Imaginarian, 1 in 90,000, which is the out curve circle wave.  The Out quality makes them more extroverted than the usual T2, so they may be 1/2 or 2/1 or even 3/2.  The Oracle is also water, but has some yang, particularly in the face shape, so might be 2/4.  The Catalyst is water, but so rare you are not likely to be one or meet one.]

Type 1 Air (yang-yin):  Type 1 is Yang followed by Yin, associated with Air in DYT.  Paulos associates Air with Curve-Box types, which means intense gaze (abstract intuition) and yang features showing objectivity.  DYT associates T1 generally with yin features when cute, small and upward, and yang with starpoint features.  This is the least possible to line up, as he seems to define this element very differently than DYT does.  The most Type 1 appearing type  is the Allure, followed by the Dreamer.  They are the Out and In line circle wave types.  There are 1 in 50 women that are Allures and 1 in 10 women that are Dreamers, so they are very common. [The one Air according to Paulos that could be a "starpoint" T1 is the Trailblazer, 1 in 190,000, so rare you are not likely to be one or meet one.]


Type 4 Earth (yin-yang):  Type 4 is Yin followed by Yang, associated with Earth in DYT.  Paulos associates Earth with Line-Point types, which means diffuse gaze (concrete intuition) and yang face shapes, conscientious types.   The most Type 4 appearing type  is the Finisher, in line circle point, which is yin, yang, yin, yang.  There are 1 in 100 women that are Finishers.  Next is the Standard.  They are the out line circle point types, yang, yang, yin, yang, so they are likely to be seen as T3s possibly.  There are 1 in 500 women that are Standards. [The Brain and the Orator,  are both Paulos Air types that actually seem T4, but they so rare you are not likely to be one or meet one.]



Type 3 Fire (yang-yang):  Type 3 is Yang Yang, associated with Fire in DYT.  Paulos associates Fire with Line Wave types, which means diffuse gaze (concrete intuition) and yin face shapes, spontaneous types.  This is the least possible to line up, as he seems to define this element very differently than DYT does.  The most Type 1 appearing type  is the Allure, followed by the Dreamer.  They are the Out and In line circle wave types.  There are 1 in 50 women that are Allures and 1 in 10 women that are Dreamers, so they are very common. [The one Air according to Paulos that could be a "starpoint" T1 is the Trailblazer, 1 in 190,000, so rare you are not likely to be one or meet one.]

  1. Just a little interesting thing to note. My kinesthitian son (not sure on spelling) is a type 4. That's a line - wave who's a type 4. He's inhibited. My kinesthetian ex is a t1. He's disinhibited.

    The two systems don't easily mesh. I know one of the factors for type is based on inhibited or disinhibited. I haven't figured out the other factor yet.

  2. Jane, i love seeing your perspectives and catching up on your blog posts. You really have a gift! I see the numbers as a completely different element not represented in p2mr. As an example, i know many water types that are 3 and 4. I am an imaginarian type 4. (And typed as such by the creators of both systems.)

    This is so helpful, thank you for this blog and the quality of information. I was noticing the last paragraph for T3 fire makes reference to T1. Is there more information for T3?

    Again, your blog is very good!
