Instincts as Celtic Knot – A Moving System

One Moving Symbol meets another – the Celtic Knot  When considering the Instinctual Subtypes, there seems to be widespread belief amidst teachers that our stacking or sequencing order is relatively fixed.

Patterns can be difficult to break when we are caught in a negative feedback loop. When triggered, we can fall into the habits of our type and begin to relate from that [...]
