Personal Entropy

Cultural Entropy® begins with personal entropy.

Personal entropy is the amount of fear-driven energy that a person expresses in his or her day-to-day interactions. Fear-driven energy arises from the conscious and subconscious fear-based beliefs (limiting beliefs) that people have about meeting their deficiency needs.

A deficiency need is something that is important to get, have or have more of, in order to feel happy and comfortable in your existing physical and social environment.

  • Limiting beliefs at the Survival level are about self-preservation – not having enough of what you want or need to feel safe and secure. These beliefs result in the display of potentially limiting values such as controlmanipulationgreed, and excessive caution.
  • Limiting beliefs at the Relationship level are about belonging – not feeling cared for or loved enough to be accepted and protected. These beliefs result in the display of potentially limiting values such as blamebeing likedcompetition, and jealousy.
  • Limiting beliefs at the Self-esteem level are about self-worth – not being enough to engender the recognition or respect of the authority figures in your life or your peers. These beliefs result in the display of potentially limiting values such as status seeking, power-seeking, and an overly strong focus on self-image.

Almost everyone operates with some level of personal entropy. The problem with personal entropy is that, if you don’t learn to master it, it becomes counterproductive to meeting your goals.

If you are leader, manager or supervisor, you will find your personal entropy showing up in your organisation, department or team in your Cultural Entropy® score.
