Evaluating test results
The psychological vector test displays results divided into two parameters for each vector: potential and acceptance (or the degree to which that vector is balanced). The scale is used to evaluate test results along those two parameters.
This parameter is indirectly related to the genetic predisposition of this vector, meaning that it changes very little over the course of a lifetime (“very little” does not mean “not at all”). All people are born with set values for each of the eight vectors, which is their potential on a scale of 0% to 100%. Note that potential changes only to a minor extent no matter how the vector plays out in real life.
Vector potential (%):
- 50—60 — the vector is missing or the person is difficult to study
- 60—70 — the vector is weakly expressed, meaning that there are few markers to see
- 70—80 — the vector is fairly expressed, meaning that there are always some markers
- 80—90 — the vector is strongly expressed, meaning that there are always quite a few markers
- 90—100 — the vector is extraordinarily expressed, meaning that many of the markers dominate the person’s life
This parameter has nothing to do with genetics; instead, it depends on our internal balance and how we relate to each individual vector. Because balance is something that comes and goes, this number can deviate throughout a person’s life to a very large extent. Many factors play a role in vector acceptance: our upbringing, the principles instilled in us as children, life experience, the people we surround ourselves with, health, success or a lack thereof in different areas, etc.
Vector acceptance (%):
- 0—20 — a completely unaccepted vector, something that happens rarely but is usually accompanied by psychosomatic diseases and requires professional help
- 20—40 — a low degree of acceptance where an extraordinarily strong (potential-wise) vector is suppressed or suffocated beginning in childhood, demonstrates almost none of its positive side, and frequently demonstrates its negative side; this person may think that he does not have this vector, though the people around them (for whom this vector is also strong) annoy them greatly
- 40—60 — a low degree of acceptance where a very strong (potential-wise) vector is realized to a very small extent, is almost completely undeveloped, and sometimes gets in the way of the person
- 60—70 — a medium degree of acceptance where a fairly strong (potential-wise) vector is realized to a relatively small extent; many of its attributes will be unwelcome to the person
- 70—90 — a high degree of acceptance that characterizes most balanced people; potential in this vector is generally realized, though some of its attributes are still not accepted or are judged on an internal level to be negative (especially if this number is below 80%)
- 90—100 — almost complete acceptance, which is the ideal; regardless of the potential of each vector, this is the goal
What is a good result and what should I work toward?
Because we have no control over our vector potentials (think of them as something like eye color), the only thing we can work on is our acceptance of them. The higher that acceptance is, the more balanced and successful we are in life. In other words, you should always aim for more than 90% acceptance regardless of your vectors’ potential.
How can we make that happen?
- First, understand yourself and recognize that the character traits you have are, in fact, your own—even if you really don’t like them.
- Second, start doing things you find pleasant, especially as that relates to the vectors you need to accept. Certainly, that will only be possible after you have finished with step 1.
That is really all you need to do in most cases to find success.
Many people are disappointed to read about vector theory and learn that vector potential cannot be changed. After all, that represents a boundary it is impossible to leap.
Interestingly enough, that generally happens for people who find many of their vectors to be poorly accepted. Even as they talk about being hemmed in, they are failing to enjoy the potential they already have!
People who have accepted their vectors, on the other hand, find they have no need for anything beyond what they already have in order to feel happy in every area of their life. They are not overly burdened by the thought that life has limited them in some way.
When it comes down to it, we have been given exactly the vectors we need to be successful in our lives. The only thing we have to do is learn how to accept and use them.
Right there is the main problem. For example, many people understand that there are advantages to being a man, just like there are advantages to being a women. Most of us leverage those advantages to be successful and happy, though there are people who only feel limited by their gender. They are so busy trying to break through those “barriers” that they miss out on what life has to offer and pass up on their chance to fully realize themselves. With the exception of real (biochemical) transsexualism, most often those people have not accepted themselves or their bodies. The same thing happens with other external and internal factors (height, waistline, skin color, eye color, hair color, musical talent, mathematical abilities, etc.).
Of course, our parents, who want us to meet expectations that may deviate strongly from the set of vectors we were born with, play a huge role in that process. And as we grow older, we sometimes also forget what it feels like to be ourselves, as adults often confusing our genuine needs with a desire to conform to those around us. That is how a fairly developed vector can end up being unaccepted.
Many people are reacquainted with themselves by studying the vector system and start meeting their own needs—needs that were long ago driven into the recesses of the subconscious.
Please note that the test results are a reflection of your answers rather than a true psychological portrait. Given that a person’s answers can vary widely (depending on how sincere or thoughtful they are, or on how seriously they take the test), result accuracy can also vary.
