Below are listed 10 video vignettes taken from the film Human by the French environmentalist, Yann Arthus-Bertrand.
The objective of the competition is to identify the NPA personality type of each subject. For purposes of scoring, your specific objective is to guess what the “official answers” will be (which may be somewhat different from your best-guess opinions).
Feel free to discuss several possible NPA diagnoses, but for ease of scoring, please commit yourself to just one final most probable NPA type for each of the 10 selections.
Important: the videos have English subtitles. If you do not see the subtitles on the YouTube screen, make sure that you turn on the subtitles/closed captions via the icon just below the screen. Also, if you elect to watch the whole series, you may wish to use a computer that has a large, high-resolution screen.
For this Competition, the possible choices are given in the list below. With 10 videos and 10 possible choices, all of the categories are used just once.
NP sanguine perfectionist
NA sanguine aggressive
NPA sanguine perfectionist aggressive
PA non-sanguine perfectionist aggressive
A non-sanguine aggressive
NPA− sanguine perfectionist
NA− sanguine non-perfectionist
−N or N −A sanguine detached/resigned
A− non-sanguine non-perfectionist with depression
Borderline types have only one of the components, N or A, and even that component is inhibited, by either genetics or environment, e.g., depression.
Individuals undergoing a life change after maturity are denoted by a “− sign” before either N or A. For example, in a Resigned type, N −A would indicate, impaired expression of trait A having an onset after maturity.
The results will be posted in a week, or when it appears that there will be no more entries. The “prize” to the winner is a copy of our original book (1985), or any of our succeeding monographs.
