Letter from
Keirsey
Dear Friend,
Welcome to the July 2015 issue of the Keirsey Magazine. This month
we are featuring Martha Graham, a divine representation of the Artisan
Composer ISFP. We call them the Artistic Leaders. Martha is celebrated
as the mother of modern dance. Her pioneering spirit created a category
of dance that is now recognized and studied all over the world. I
found it fascinating to learn about her and to see how progressive and
revolutionary she was as an artist which transcended not only her time,
but of all time.
When I think of Marthas performances, the words that come to mind
are, flow, grace, and elegance. I am thrilled at the artwork created by
our feature artist this month, who did an amazing job capturing Marthas
unique essence and distinctive style. We hope that through Martha
Graham, along with all the leaders that we ever feature, you will learn so
much about the different types of people around us, and that you will
celebrate all of the different qualities that different temperaments bring
to the table. This month we celebrate all kinds of artists, Artisan or not,
the world would be such a different place without them.

All the Best,

Leadership Lessons

Artisan Composer ISFP

By Edward Kim and David Keirsey

She spoke often about sexuality, politics, history,


psychology, and religion. She communicated
strong messages with a powerful mastery of
language. But, her language was not spoken
by words, but rather, through movement. Her
body was her art, and her passionate displays of
expression through dance spoke on her behalf.
Martha Graham was declared by Time Magazine
as Dancer of the Century. She is notably regarded
as the mother of modern dance. During a time
where puritanical religiosity was predominant she
danced seductively, provocatively, yet elegantly. In
addition to dancing, she posed on many occasions
for fine art nude photographers, seeking to make
a statement about gender, sexuality, and politics.
She pushed the edge not just for her times, but
stretched the limits for dancers and artists of all
time. She received invitations to perform before
Presidents, Kings, Queens, Popes, and Dictators.
She was utterly determined to push herself to
the absolute limits of what was possible for the
human body. She set the bar so high, that many
in her industry have said that it is improbable that
any dancer will ever come close to dethroning

The Artistic Leader learns by persistent


action in their various domains.
I have spent all my life with dance and
being a dancer, she said. Martha Graham
danced and choreographed for over seven
decades. Dance was something she could
not live without. So much, so that during
a short absence away from dance, she
became depressed and even suicidal. It was
her life force. She had a groundbreaking
style and is said to have enlivened the body
with raw, electric emotion. Her dance was
characterized as, sharp, angular, and direct
movements, and as, a dramatic departure
from the predominant style of the time.
During her distinguished career, she created
181 dance compositions, which continue to
challenge and inspire generations of dancers
and enthusiasts. She was persistent in her
action, believing that, We learn by practice.
This was her philosophy on life. She has
said, Whether it means to learn to dance
by practicing dancing or to learn to live by
practicing living, the principles are the same.
She also believed that, Practice means to
perform, over and over again in the face of
all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of
desire. Practice is a means of inviting the
perfection desired.

Keirsey

The Artistic Leader instinctively


composes great masterpieces.
Grahams compositions have been emulated
by dancers even decades after she first
choreographed them. Her compositions
have been deemed as masterpieces of 20th
century American Modernism. Her influence
on dance has been compared to the influence
of Picasso on modern visual art, Stravinsky on
music, and Frank Lloyd Wright on architecture.
Graham was the first dancer ever to perform
at the White House, earning the highest civilian
award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
She has also received honors ranging from
the Key to the City of Paris, to Japans Imperial
Order of the Precious Crown. Her style, the
Graham technique, is taught worldwide, and
her work has revolutionized the dance world
and created what is known as modern dance.
In 1998 Graham was named, Dancer of the
Century by Time Magazine. She created
a movement language that pushed the
expressive capability of the human body.
Her masterpieces were, Consistently infused
with social, political, psychological, and sexual
themes. Her choreography was viewed as
being, timeless, connecting with audiences
past and present.

Portrait of a Leader

Her art spoke volumes on the vitality and strength of a womans sexuality, and of her superiority at a time
when women were looked upon as less capable than men.

11

Keirsey

The Artistic Leader leads by making


statements through their art.
Graham had daring ideas, and she was
audacious in the way she expressed them.
Her movements were provocative, seductive,
powerful, playful, and yet elegant. She had
something to say about sexuality, gender,
beauty, and psychology, but rather than
using her words, she made her statements
through her art. She pushed the limits of
her own bodys potential, for she had much
to say through dance. Graham exerted such
control of her body that dancers gasped
at what looked like impossible moves. The
Graham method of speaking with the body
was characterized by the movement of
panthers. She trained her dancers on the
ground, insisting that they develop Pelvic
Truth, teaching them to breathe from the
vagina. Primal sexuality was at the center of
what she taught her protges. She said, I
wont have virgins in my company. Early on, it
was said that men could not be trained by her
because they would have vagina envy. Her art
spoke volumes on the vitality and strength of
a womans sexuality, and of her superiority at
a time when women were looked upon as less
capable than men.

Keirsey

The Artistic Leader leads by quiet


orchestration behind the scenes.
Starting from 1926, Grahams work has quietly
inspired major revolutions. She was not simply
dancing to entertain, her movement language
crossed barriers to effect politics, feminism,
and religion. She has danced for Popes and
Presidents, while declining an invitation from
Hitler. She started out by crossing into all kinds
of artistic genres, collaborating with fashion
designers, Donna Karan and Calvin Klein,
sculptor Isamu Noguchi, composer Aaron
Copland, and she has taught entertainers like
Kirk Douglas and Madonna. What we see on
stage in the 21st century in rock concerts,
ballets, and Broadway, finds its origins in what
Graham started nearly a hundred years before.
Her compositions are revered as far more
than beautiful artwork. They are considered
to be commentaries on the history and soul
of America, a rebellion against puritanism, a
major contribution to feminism, and a powerful
force in the sexual revolution. Behind the
scenes of the American stage stands a woman
who created a movement language that defied
race, religion, gender, and politics.

Martha integrated and adapted dance traditions where she


saw fit, and discarded what she deemed as inadequate to
express that which was her own.

15

Keirsey

The Artistic Leader takes on new


challenges to expand their art.
Graham once said, Some men have thousands
of reasons why they cannot do what they
want to, when all they need is one reason
why they can. No challenge was ever too
great for her. Wherever limitations existed,
she sought to eliminate them. It mattered not
that she arrived late to the art of dance (at
age 23). Though new to the game, she had
the audacity to create a dance with original
roots. Her desire was to develop indigenous
art that would be self-defined. Martha
integrated and adapted dance traditions
where she saw fit, and discarded what she
deemed as inadequate to express that which
was her own. She had no experience as an
entrepreneur, and yet, she raised funds,
attracted patrons, created fans and critics,
recruited talent, and established the Martha
Graham Dance Company as Americas first
dance company (at age 32). What drove her
was a dissatisfaction with what had been
established thus far. She sought to defy the
order. She believed that, No artist is pleased.
There is no satisfaction whatever at any time.
There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction; a
blessed unrest that keeps us marching and
makes us more alive than the others.

Spirituality.

Keirsey

What does it mean to be spiritual? The English


word spirit comes from the Latin spiritus,
which means breath. Where there is breath,
there is life. And when breath ceases, there is
death. To put it simply, to be spiritual means
to truly live. The great William Wallace (in
Braveheart) once said, Every man dies. Not
every man really lives. To live, we must be
surrounded by air, and to live, we must pursue
that which gives us life. Dr. Keirsey believed
that different temperaments each pursue life
differently. What invigorates one persons life,
can be the very thing that destroys anothers.
What one breathes in can be wonderfully
intoxicating, while for another the very same
ingestion can be utterly toxic.
We believe that temperament has a significant
impact on what will make a person feel most
alive. And we believe that the spiritual pursuit
must include elements of connection with
what brings life for you. Life will have greater
meaning to the extent that you engage your
nature. To live with all of you, to know the
good, the bad, the lovely, and the ugly that is
you. Just like we need to be surrounded by air
to stay alive, each of us needs to be surrounded
by certain elements that are life giving for us
if we are to thrive. In this article, we explore
some of the intricacies of what gives life and
breath to each of the temperaments.
Keirsey

Faith, Spirituality, & Religion

Spirituality
as Sensuality.
The pursuit of the Artisan is sensuality. We
are to, Eat, drink, and be merry. Artisans
believe that, Life is short. And they want
to live with total freedom, to be able to fully
express themselves, the way they want,
when they want, without restriction. They
seek to be intoxicated by all that life has to
offer. To live sensually and hedonistically.
They are enthralled by the physical,
wanting to see, hear, taste, touch, and smell
that which is beautiful. The human body is
meant to be naked, and to be stimulated to
the max as often as possible, in ways that are
new and exciting. For Artisans, spirituality
is about surrendering to the moment that
brings deep delight. In sacred literature
Artisans were the ones who struggled with
lust. They celebrated the sexual nature of
being, and creatively explored the different
ways to make life orgasmic.

Spirituality
as Respectability.
The pursuit of the Guardian is respectability.
We are to, Earn our keep. Guardians
believe that, Life is unpredictable. And
they want to be prepared for the rainy days,
to create safety, and build security in the
midst of uncertainty. They seek to restrain
themselves from wasteful indulgence. To
exercise prudence and discretion. They
are disciplined and approach life carefully,
believing that any misstep can derail them
from the path of godliness. The human body
is meant to be clothed in righteousness,
and covering ones shame is what restores
dignity to ones being. For Guardians,
spirituality is about surrendering our will
to the greater good. In sacred literature
Guardians were the ones who struggled
with fear. They celebrated honor and purity
of being, and did whatever they could to
uphold a higher standard for living.

Spirituality
as Love.
The pursuit of the Idealist is love. We are
to, Love one another. Idealists believe
that, Life is miraculous. And they want
to live authentically and in harmony with
others, to live in ideality and wonder, away
from the hurts and wounds of life. They
seek to engage the soul, and to live from
the heart. To find their true selves and live
their best lives. They are full of wonder and
view life romantically, believing that there
is a reason for everything. The human
body is meant to be transcended, yet is to
be taken care of, for it is an earthly vessel
that carries that which is eternal. For
Idealists, spirituality is about surrendering
to the mystical, and to be nurtured by the
divine. In sacred literature Idealists were
the ones who struggled with inner peace.
They celebrated the wonder of being, and
engaged intimately with the divine.

Spirituality
as Knowledge.
The pursuit of the Rational is knowledge.
We are to, Seek wisdom and to gain
understanding. Rationals believe that Life
is explainable. And they want to unravel
and solve the mysteries of the universe, in
order to provide those explanations and
solutions. They seek to use the full capability
of their minds. To innovate and to evolve.
They are intellectually curious, utterly
willful in their quests, and supremely self
sufficient. The human body is meant to be
studied, analyzed, dissected, scrutinized,
and explored in order to gain greater
insight into the nature of humanity. For
Rationals, spirituality is about surrendering
to no one. In scared literature Rationals
were the ones who struggled with pride.
They celebrated the advancement of the
human being, and were irreverent to the
suppressive establishments of their times.

3 Tips

3 Tips
Artisans dont really need to be told how
to have fun. Their entire lives are about
having fun. They have fun all the time. So
what we discuss here and suggest might be
more useful to those people in an Artisans
life who just dont get them. Or if youre an
Artisan, what we talk about here may give
you some insight on why you are the way
you are. So heres the scoop. For Artisans
money buys them freedom, allows them to
be audacious, and enhances pleasure. Fun
for them is about spontaneously engaging
any impulse, being over-the-top in their
adventures, and accessing new and different kinds of stimulation. The drawback to
this, however, is that Artisans are prone to
addictions and often dont know how to do
moderation.

45

Keirsey

1. Try engaging in an activity that


you just never thought to try before.
The same familiar activities, at the same
places, with the same people are still
always fun. But, you just dont know what
youre missing if you dont try something
new. It will surprise you!
2. Give something over-the-top. Be
audacious in your generosity with someone by going far beyond what youre used
to doing. Youll get just as much out of
the impact you see on the individual as
the recipient does.
3. Find activities which stimulate
the senses. Artisans have the highest
awareness of their physical senses. They
see, hear, taste, touch, and smell at levels
which are far beyond what others get to
experience. But, beware, that this can be
highly intoxicating, and even addictive.

Guardians need to be often reminded


of the need for fun in their lives. They
make saving such a high priority, that delayed gratification is the way they normally
operate. They inherently hold onto the
view that indulgence is wrong, and therefore, are inclined to work hard all the way
up until retirement, at which time, they
decide that its now finally okay to have
a little bit of fun. But, heres the scoop.
When they keep delaying, they eventually
get too old and tired to enjoy everything
they were delaying in their more vibrant
years. On the other hand if they follow
along with Artisans and go all out while
they are young, they are driven to worry,
fear, anxiety, and doubt, because it violates their need to be responsible and it
tears away their safety net.

1. Make saving fun. Guardians love


to save. They love to see their bank accounts grow, even if its just in small increments. And they love calculating all
the money they saved from cutting costs.
If Guardians can set aside a fun fund
where a certain amount is regularly put
into that fund, the anticipation and the
monitoring of it can be a lot of fun!
2. Schedule weekly date nights, or
activity times with friends and
family. Get involved in an activity group
of some kind where you pay the money
upfront, which will make you go out and
have fun on a regular basis.
3. Plan mini-retirements. Instead of
saving it all for the big-retirement, plan
temporary retirements along the way,
where you save up vacation time and
money for well deserved breaks while
youre still young.

IDEALIST
SPENDING
Idealists can deceive themselves into
thinking that theyre having fun even
when theyre not enjoying something at
all. They end up trading in authenticity for
relational harmony. Both are core needs for
them, but far too often, they can stop being
honest about whether they feel fulfilled, satisfied, or are truly enjoying themselves. This
is because they are often far too concerned
with others needs over their own. They
are always looking to make sure that others are having fun, that they forget to have
fun themselves. If they go to the extreme
of thinking only of themselves, enjoyment
is short lived, and turned quickly into guilt.
Their hyper-sensitivity to anothers feelings
kicks in, and then its all over. Idealists can
only truly enjoy themselves when its fun for
all.

47

Keirsey

3 Tips
1. Let go of your fear of how others
might be feeling. If theyre with you, its
more than likely that they want to be with
you. Youre the reason theyre around,
so its best to be authentic and be your
true self. Dont be afraid to let them know
what you want. This will create a win-win,
which is far more fun.
2. Explore to see what you genuinely
enjoy. In the name of relational harmony, youve often adopted what others like
and neglected your own desires.
3. Realize that you are not responsible for everyone elses enjoyment.
Playing this role can lead to a great deal
of stress in the long run for you and for
others. Pay attention to your feelings and
connect with others authentically.

3 Tips

RATIONAL
SPENDING
Rationals find it fun when they are mentally challenged. They require intellectual stimulation for something to be worth
their time. When they are spending their
time with anyone or in anything that does
not tickle their mind, they feel frustrated.
Whats fun for them is engaging with people
in ways which are clever, witty, and challenging. They find it fun to play mind tricks,
to psychologically anticipate what another may be thinking, and to influence their
attitudes and perspectives. There are rarely
any activities which are intrinsically fun for
Rationals. Activities are fun insofar as they
facilitate some kind of mental titillation or if
the people they are engaging in the activity
with are fostering some kind of mind exercise for them.

1. Dont be such an intellectual snob.


Realize that mental stimulation can occur
indirectly. Often you learn what otherwise
couldnt be learned by using your body
instead of your brains. Often not thinking
can bring clarity to your thoughts.
2. Leap first, think later. Rationals
often think too much before just going
for it. Sometimes you need to just act first
and think later. Allowing your feelings,
desires, impulses, or emotions to lead
you sometimes can be a lot of fun, and
even healthy for you. Remember that
youre human and not a robot.
3. Keep investing your money on
activities and people who enhance
your mind. In the long run, this is your
way of experiencing ultimate satisfaction
and pleasure. Find others who will grow
together in expertise with you. This kind
of mental synergy is invigorating for Rationals.
