Ken Wilber is the famous, possibly infamous, creator of integral theory. The theory in brief (I can’t stress that enough) posits 5 major tenants: Lines, Levels, Types, States, and Quadrants. We’ll be looking at quadrants in this post.
Each quadrant represents an internal (psychological) or external (behavioral) on an individual or collective (societal) level. As I trader I use these quadrants as a tool to check my perspective.
Upper Left: What am I thinking feeling, expecting from this stock?
Bottom Left: What are other people thinking, feeling, expecting from this stock?
Upper Right: How is the stock moving? What are the patterns and trend?
Bottom Right: What is the sector doing, the collective?
As complicated as integral theory can get. One can typically break it down for practical everyday use. Metatheories are often good for that. 🙂
