The "good" and "bad" of a Deteriorate, Negative, Divestive - ONE

 

 MAJORS

 

MINORS

MINORS

Each Major Trump card is equal to two Minor Suit cards.

Coins and Staves show us the
Yang : Tangible : Transient : Crystalline : Particle Nature of Things.
Roses and Swords reveal the
Yin : Intangible : Perpetual : Amorphic : Wave Nature of Things.
Coins and Roses show us the
Yang : Positive : Ameliorate path of these two sides.
Staves and Swords show us the
Yin : Negative : Deteriorate path of these two sides.
Both Ameliorate and Deteriorate paths have
Moderate ("good") and Extreme ("bad") possibilities to consider.

It's a matrix SYSTEM! It has many layers, many levels.

This page describes the Moderate and Extreme of a deteriorate One (1). I leave it to you to extract the yin from the yang from each Moderate and Extreme! Then, extract the yin and yang from each Moderate and Extreme of an Ameliorate One (1)!

Subjective Iconic Names and Titles:

Majors: The Jinx and The Idiot:
Minors: The Glacial Beginning and The Ominous State

Elaboration on Key Words:

Major: --------------------
-
Portent ~ Ignorance - These people spell bad luck. Their ignorance prevents anything but stupidity and calamity to follow.

The Jinx:
-
Fickle ~ Fatalist ~ Thwarting - These people are a menace. They thwart all attempts made to begin. They will stop you dead in your tracks. If an opportunity arises, they will miss it. If an opportunity arises, they will not tell you about it. Making you...

The Idiot:
-
Stupid ~ Derelict ~ Omitting - These people never accomplish anything, because they never get started. Or if they do start, they go nowhere, and eventually abandon their effort. Or if they start and don't abandon their effort, they make one stupid move after another. Lots of false starts that go nowhere.

Minor: --------------------
-
Slow Beginning ~ Dormant State - These people are slow of mind and body. At the moment, they prefer not to.

Stave:
-
Glacial ~ Inertia ~ Suppressing - These people are like a car that won't start. Lots of potential that never goes anywhere. And because their natural state is inert, they suppress other people's efforts to break that inertia.
- Repressed ~ Abortion ~ Squelching - These people are quitters. They don't count.

Sword:
-
Ominous ~ Inanity ~ Nullifying - These people are like storm clouds in the distance - ominous and foreboding. They presage the arrival of a turn of fate for the worst. Take cover.
- Nebulous ~ Oblivion ~ Voiding - These people are usually quite oblivious to what is going on around them. Even worse, they are totally oblivious to their detrimental effect on others.

--------------------

Other General Observations:
These people are stupid. They are the moronic, witless type. They are usually two or three steps behind everyone else.

Approach:
They take a dim-witted approach to everything, usually missing the point entirely. They don't know what's going on at all, they are clueless.

Thinking:
Their thinking is dull, sparkless and unoriginal. They can't figure anything out on their own. If they do, it takes the forever! They think small.

Belief:
They are all about fatalism. They don't really care what's coming. They think that everything is pointless. They are weak willed, victims of Fate, unable to do anything but accept whatever is in store.

Philosophy:
They believe that life is about..."duh, what was the question?"

Character:
They are infantile and childish. They hate being the center of attention, for fear that it will reveal their lack of intelligence.

Capacity:
They are not good at breaking inertia. They procrastinate their life away. If they ever do start something, it never really goes anywhere.

Reaction:
If you approach them in a bad way they clam up and will not say anything. They will give you the icy cold shoulder. They are often cold and impassive and without emotion.

Feelings:
If outside influences are bad they feel inferior and stupid. They feel like an insignificant spec in the universe. They feel lonely and don't know what to do about it. They are most likely to commit suicide.

Esteem:
No matter what happens, they always feel like a doofus beginner who doesn't know anything.

Moderate Negative One:

Subjective Iconic Names and Titles:

Majors: The Stoic and The Virgin:
Minors: The Gradual Beginning and The Augurous State

Elaboration on Key Words:

Major: --------------------
-
Fortune ~ Innocence - These people are fortunate. Things randomly happen for them. They don't MAKE them happen, they just happen.

The Stoic:
-
Arbitrary ~ Loner ~ Postponing - These people are fatalistic, or deterministic. They spin the wheel of fortune and take whatever they get. Sometimes they just want to see what will happen if they do not exert will over a situation.

The Virgin:
-
Naive ~ Novice ~ Trifling - These people have a childlike innocence about them that is endearing and non-threatening.

Minor: --------------------
-
Slow Beginning ~ Dormant State - They know when to hold and when to fold. They know that sometimes it's better to do nothing, and not think about it.

Stave:
-
Gradual ~ Latency ~ Suspending - These people are just as smart as anyone, but they usually take longer to think about things. They are more pensive and introspective. "Still water runs deep."
- Abeyant ~ Prevention ~ Cancelling - They are very modest with their displays of intelligence. They don't want to shine too brightly lest they attract too much attention. They know how smart they are.

Sword:
-
Augurous ~ Velleity ~ Quelling - These people are psychic. They have random premonitions.
- Abstract ~ Anonymity ~ Effacing - These people enjoy the solitude of their own company and living in their head. This is often taken the wrong way by friends and family as antisocial, or shy behavior. Fact is, they are just comfortable with being alone.

--------------------

Other General Observations:
These people are charmingly naive. They are the strong silent, sometimes quiet, mousy, demure type.

Approach:
They usually take a somewhat innocent and artless approach to things, they don't pretend to be an expert on anything.

Thinking:
Their thinking is delightfully unpretentious. They are not trying to impress anyone with their intellect.

Belief:
They are all about abstinence. Sometimes NOT doing something is just as important as DOING something.

Philosophy:
They believe that life is about fate, karma, kismet. They will be happy with whatever come along. They don't know what their fortune will be, it doesn't matter.

Character:
They are monastic, chaste or even celibate. Again, not doing something has it's own virtue. They prefer to remain anonymous and behind the scenes.

Capacity:
They are good at sitting still in silence. They are stoic. "Sometimes you just have to turn off your brain."

Reaction:
If you approach them in a good way, they will break their silence, but probably still speak softly. Don't ask them to yell across the room.

Feelings:
If outside influences are good they feel fortunate.

Esteem:
No matter what happens, they always feel eternally young. They always feel like a beginner.
