About the Tilt Color Zones Bookmark

Notice that scores on Tilt 365 fall in five different zones, with colors associated with each. We call these the five mindsets because each contains a point of view that presupposes a certain approach to the situation. Everyone moves up and down into various color zones throughout each day, responding to the external cues in the environment. Yet, as we expand and grow stronger in our inner core, we hang out in an open mindset that allows us to shift into any of the four swiftly, as needed by the current context. As this happens, our capacity for being more open to learning, more flexible and responsive to circumstances, and more open to various points of view is expanded. The wider the capacity, the more positive flow can come through us and into the world around us.

The five mindsets refer to psychological development in a variety of perspectives which occurs when we become more conscious and complex in our ability to respond to our environment. Instead of black and white thinking (dualistic), we evolve into mental states that can include two different approaches at once (non-dualistic). For example, instead of seeing ourselves as either introverted or extroverted, we begin to see ourselves as capable of both mindsets and make a conscious choice about which approach is appropriate to the situation.

Protective Mindset- Tilt Red Zone
Human Need: Significance & Status
Mindset: Protective & Forceful-Closed to input with a strong need to prevent risk.

In this mindset we are intently focused on tasks and efficiency for the sake of execution. We are a guardian of rules and boundaries that protect.

Competitive Mindset- Tilt Orange Zone
Human Need: Autonomy & Power
Mindset: Competitive & Futuristic- Closed to input with a strong need for urgent action.

In this mindset we are confidently focused on promoting our ideas for swift results. We are a champion of meaningful purpose and catalyze change.
Integrative Mindset- Tilt Yellow Zone
Human Need: Acceptance & Belonging
Mindset: Integrative & Inclusive- Open to Input with a strong need for social harmony.

In this mindset we are circumspect about risk and thorough in analysis of the best way forward. We are an investigator of details and, therefore, trusted advisors.

Adaptive Mindset- Tilt Green Zone
Human Need: Freedom to be special and valued.
Mindset: Adaptive & Inclusive-Open to input with a strong need for social inclusion.

In this mindset we are socially intuitive and inclusive, wanting harmony and happiness for all. We are entertaining storytellers and cross pollinate ideas socially.

Agile Positive Influence- Tilt Blue Zone

Human Need: To be responsive, not reactive and to able to consciously shift to context at will.
Mindset: Shifts to context with balance, ease and flow. (All four Tilt patterns are easy and automatically wired-in so they are available to you).

Here we have become our most agile, conscious, creative, actualized, authentic self and operate with a mindset that contains regard for self, others and the greater community all at once. We operate from character strength more of the time and don't take ourselves or others too seriously to miss the point of a wonderfully diverse world. When we grow into our higher self, we become more agile, more flexible and more inclusive. This means we are even more inclusive of ALL OF OURSELVES, so we embrace all four previous mindsets in ourselves but now we are mindfully present and CONSCIOUS as we move into the various mindsets, aware of the temptations and drawbacks of each. This is called a Holarchy.

The difference is whether we are CONSCIOUS of our behavior and it's purposes and strategies. Note, that as your character strengths grow more balanced in all four mindsets, the expansiveness of your influence grows wider.
