Mind Styles: Concrete Random
In the Mind Style Resource Guide by Dr. Anthony Gregore a writer is given four different styles of thinking, Concrete Sequential, Abstract Random, Concrete Random, & Abstract Sequential.
A writer can use the Mind Style Resource Guide to create conflict between major characters.
Purpose of this Guide
This resource guide will give writers a way to enhance conflict and humor and bring the hero and heroine to a deeper understanding of each others personality. We all understand that characters must undergo change and growth if they are to find true happiness. We understand too that the conflicts must be resolved before the end of the manuscript. Conflicts are not alway on the physical level. Sometimes the problems that separate the hero and the heroine are on the physiological level.
Today we will look at the Concrete Random personality traits.
Dominant View Point:
Concrete Randoms are the instinctual jumpers. By that I mean they have the answers before the questions have been asked. They makeup a noteworthy percentage of the futurists. More than any other point, they jump back and forth between fact and theory. This amazing brainstorming ability also frequently leaves them in a position of not being able to explain their thinking to the other points.
