Hello my fellow Body Evolvers,

So as I mentioned before people can fall into two categories when it comes to temptations. And each group has to approach cravings in their own way. Each sides strategy is in direct conflict with the others.

But it isn’t just with temptations. The more I research for my upcoming book, the more I realise that although I have a strategy that can work for anyone, how that method is applied to people cant be universal. There are just so many ways individual personalities can be divided.

We’ve already spoken about abstainers and moderators. But what about introverts and extroverts? One groups approach is never going to work for the other, and vice versa.

And that’s far from the end of it. In her book Better Than Before, Gretchen Rubin divides personalities across 4 trait types. The upholders, the questioners, the obligers and the rebels. And again, each needs a different way of doing things.

Another way to create groups that Gretchen mentions are the over and under spenders. Outside of her ideas there are also those who like to begin gradually and those who like to jump straight in. Or the 14 personality types of Myers-Briggs. And on and on.

It seems that the next big evolution of the Body Vision method needs to be the differing ways it must be applied to the different types of personalities that people hold.

The plot thickens….

I’m also looking for individuals who want to work with me through the app for free!! This is to allow me to try out some different approaches that I would like to incorporate into the Body Vision method, but we need to check they actually work first. If you’re interested then just drop me an email to put yourself forwards!!

As always if you have any questions about anything feel free to give me a shout.

Best wishes,
