EVERYONE IS A GENIUS
Your Genius is one of four natural Geniuses in the Genius Test. By knowing your Genius, you can follow your natural path in life. You have a natural way to earn, to learn, to lead, to live and to love. You have a natural winning formula and losing formula. By knowing your Genius, and the Genius of your family, friends and colleagues, you can get into your flow, and you can help them get into their flow. When you are in your flow, you do the things you are best at and that energise you.
Why are there four Geniuses? A line of great minds from Plato to Isaac Newton to Carl Jung agreed there are four ‘types’. We all have a little of each genius, but have more of one than the others. When you follow your genius, you end up doing what you love, and loving what you do. These four link to the four seasons.
