The center stackings are how one’s locus of attention is distributed amongst the three centers: Self-survival (SUR), Interpersonal (INT), and Purpose (PUR). The first center in the stacking is given the utmost attention and energy as it provides the biggest hit of aliveness; it cannot be turned off and will always require consideration even when engaging in the other centers. The second center in the stacking is something that is given open consideration; it can be turned on and off based on whether or not the first center is providing the hit. The last center in the stacking incorporates high standards of consideration before any energy is invested into tracking that realm (“energy pickiness”); it must accentuate the feelings of aliveness that come from the first and second centers or else it is ignored or forgotten.

Your stacking is created by choosing one expanded instinct in each center. To read more about those, Click Here.

The 6 Stackings

SUR/INT – SIP

• Interacts directly with reality
• Attention is fixed on the unfolding of the present moment between objects
• Focus is placed on how things affect them in the present moment rather than the long-term
• Contextualizes their relationships through the present physical reality
• Relationships serve their greater need for survival of the self

Self-survival dominants with interpersonal secondary are tracking how interactions with others may affect the desired hit they receive from their physical world. This center stacking is able to turn their meter for interpersonal on and off based on how much it fulfills or feeds into the dominant realm. For this reason, they view the interpersonal realm as a place to explore as a beneficial addition to their dominant locus of attention: the self-survival realm. The realm of materials and how they relate to or affect the self is given the utmost care and attention and this center stacking may forego interacting with others if it threatens their ability to track self-survival. Since this center stacking has purpose in last place, the first two centers must be aiding in a hit of aliveness for the individual to fully engage in tracking the purpose or reason behind all things. When something goes wrong or disconnects the individual from the hit in the first two realms, then managing or tracking purpose becomes acutely stressful and not worth the attention it requires.
