(All Quadrants, All Levels, All Lines, All States, All Types). Recognizing that the best that any model can be is “true and partial”, and thus all models should be held lightly, I briefly describe the Integral Model before moving on to the All Quadrant aspect of it. There follow sections on the “monological gaze vs. duological gaze”, “introversion vs. extraversion”, and “individual vs. collective” in which I point out that unless we consider all of these aspects when working with others there is a strong possibility that we might mistype others. There follows a brief introduction to NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) leading into a section on the Meta Model, which is a tool to help us with the category errors that we might make while considering Quadrants. There are examples of how two of the thirteen patterns from the Meta Model can be used, Modal Operators and Nominalizations. The final section explores the “All Levels” aspect of Wilber’s model by introducing Clare Graves’ work on world-views and how it might relate to mistyping…
