Energetic Genius

Your Energetic Genius is what motivates you to take action, to grow and to expand in life. Understanding this energy motivates us and illuminates our strengths and our weaknesses. It also helps us, and others, better understand the sense of urgency or speed in which our mindset believes things need to be done. The more we can master this key the greater our ability to focus time and energy into the areas where we will excel. We can also begin to understand where our natural energy is better served or removed from a specific task that is not aligned with our natural abilities. Through this understanding of our own Energetic Key we will then be better  able to understand those around us, in life and business. This energy impacts so many aspects of life, from how you communicate, delegate tasks, and build camaraderie with those around you.

The Energetic Genius  is one of the Genius Keys that evolves over time as you move through life. It is also influenced by different life experiences as you become more and more self aware and aligned with your most authentic self. So your Energetic Genius, may no longer ring true in a few years and might possibly evolve again several times thereafter.

Before we get into the specifics of your Energetic Genius  it’s important to understand the different sciences taking place within this knowledge. The principal data here is focused on your motivation.  Motive is one of the deepest reasons for behavior. It also dramatically impacts your mindset and forms much of your belief systems. This is why many people believe that what motivates you forms your innate personality.

What we have found to be true is that while you may possess strengths and challenges from each of the four Energetic Keys, you have only one core Energetic Key. Again, there is not any one key that is better or worse than the others. However there definitely are tasks and projects that are much more easily executed by one Energetic Key than the others. The energetic genius measures the output of energy and the difficulty in morphing one’s natural talents in order to execute any given task or request.

“Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.

Amilya Antonetti

As you read through each of the Energetic Keys keep in mind these are simply a reflection of what is most crucial to each individual – what lives under their motivation. Your Energetic genius is innate—you were born with it. There are countless factors that influence your personality and what motivates you: life experiences, family, upbringing, education, cultural values, phase you are in of development etc etc. But none of those factors are  stronger than another, nor can one change your driving core motivation. If you were to strip away all other influences that have affected your personality, you would be left with your primary Energetic Key. It is the most basic and fundamental part of your personality. 

Since life is mainly about relationships and the success of any endeavor, whether personal or professional, often depends on how you can relate with other individuals this part of the Genius Key plays a vital role in understanding yourself and others.  This knowledge will help you understand why you perform better at certain tasks than others, why other personalities gel easily with yours and clash with others. Your energy helps determine where your best place is on a team. Knowing the Energetic Key of your team members is your power tool in creating a company culture that is thriving as it grows exponentially faster than it would without this knowledge. The deeper you dive into each one of the Genius Keys, the more powerful these tools become.

How goal energizers Like to Be Treated

Goal energizers like to be dealt with in a factual, and precise manner. “ just the facts please” as fluff or idle chit chat is not necessary to the red mindset. A red person loves it when people aren’t afraid to step up and deal with a direct approach. Goal energizers like to be right so find a way to tell them they are right or have them think it was their idea. Ask them what they think about this; approach; idea; direction; solution; or problem so they get skin in the game for the outcome. This gives them the validation and respect that they yearn for and lets people share their ideas in a safe and effective manner.

  • Stick with the facts and leave your emotions at the door
  • Should you find that you need to contradict or disagree with a goal energizer address them with the facts that back up your statement or hypothesis. They respect substance and opportunities for learning as long as you prove your stance. 
  • Address the part of the project or task that’s not working or stuck. (DO NOT rehash what is working because to a goal energizer it is assumed its flowing/working – they only want to hear about the disconnect.)
  • They work hard and play hard – this is how they define living.

Don’t take their lack of personal chit chat personally; it is no reflection of how they feel. They have an overactive analytical mindset and typically don’t “waste time” with how things feel. 

Where goal energizers disconnect with others energetic genius’ (the gap) 

goal energizers, for the most part, see the world in black and white thinking. They are practical and efficient, so it is beyond their comprehension on why others spend their energy in any other way. It’s hard for goal energizers to identify with personalities that are ruled in emotion verse facts and it’s nearly impossible for a red to relate to the “it’s the journey” or “stop and smell the roses”  mentality. That is because the goal energizer personality is strong and they have a deep belief that their way is the best and most direct route. Goal energizers, who are not known for patience, normally will not engage to go deeper into other possible ways of thinking until much later in life or after self work and analysis is done.

The goal energizer personality type can often be misunderstood as cold or egotistical when in fact the goal energizer does have depth to their emotions, they just don’t easily show them. That depth lives under the task oriented, solution mode reasoning that likes to get things done verse talk about it.

Insensitive: Doesn’t listen to anyone’s needs, especially mine Workaholic: Expects us to work too much Self-Centered: Doesn’t understand me or anyone else
Detached and Aloof: Doesn’t care about me or anyone but themselves Too Serious: Needs to “loosen up” and have some fun Harsh: Lacks diplomacy

 

The Value in collaboration with other energetic genius’:

Each color naturally gravitates to its own color because it relatable, seems easier and basic human nature is to stay with those like us – it feels familiar. When in actuality, success comes from respecting and accepting the need for each of the colors respective talents and contributions. The greatest successes come when all talents are cohesively brought together for leapfrog success. We are stronger together then any one can be apart. When you adapt the belief system that everyone adds a bit of brilliance and let go of the “right and wrong mentality” you open the doors to seeing the value that each talent and perspective brings to a task, project or situation. Harnessing the value from ALL colors allows the master puppeteer to birth brilliance in any given team, project or business. Like a painter who uses primary colors to come up with an infinite colored rainbow

It’s not that fun energizers don’t value structure, it’s just that they need it to be provided for them to follow so they can be allowed to shine within the structure. The other colors are motivated differently and their experience of the fun energizers approach is one of being indifferent to their needs and not dependable due to their tendency to have poor follow through.

The Value in collaboration with other energetic genius’

Each color naturally gravitates to its own color because it seems easier and basic human nature is to stay with those like us – it feels familiar. When in actuality success comes from respecting and accepting the need for each of the colors respective talents and contributions. The greatest successes come when all talents are cohesively brought together for leapfrog success. We are stronger together then any one can be apart. When you adapt the belief system that everyone adds a bit of brilliance and let go of the “right and wrong mentality” you open the doors to seeing the value that each talent and perspective brings to a task, project or situation. Harnessing the value from ALL colors allows the master puppeteer to birth brilliance in any given team, project or business. Like a painter who uses primary colors to come up with an infinite colored rainbow.
