What type are you?

How can you acquire a confirmation of what type you are? There is only one authoritative organization for GPT typing: The GPT Foundation in Boston, MA founded and presided by Bob Cooley. Bob Cooley's second book The 16 Geniuses — Sixteen Genetic Personality Types will be released soon.

Soon you will be able to click on “What type am I” and then be filmed for 15 minutes while being interviewed. Four faculty of the GPT Foundation will review the film and confirm your type. You will then be sent via email information on your type and your balancing type.

The 16 GPT Types

A New Psychology — Based on Types

The 16 Genetic Personality Types (GPT) Theory is a new psychology based on types. What has been discovered and presented on types breaks the code on human psychology. This new psychology is based on the principles of concomitance, balance, equivalence, and reflection. The hallmark of this new system is the groundbreaking discovery of defining the type of unconscious for each type. This 16 Type System is not the same as anything previously identified in Astrology, Myers Briggs, the Enneagram, Chinese Medicine, nor any other current system, though many sources were ultimately used to help develop this psychology of types after my initial discovery of types while Resistance Stretching. But no western, eastern, northern, nor southern theories have ever existed that identify humans as genetic types nor that there were sixteen. What theories do you have about types?

Every culture, nationality, and religion can also be understood as forming from a type. This philosophy on types is so grand in its applications that it instantly expands consciousness.

Knowing types is still mostly lost
in the large overwhelming mix of life, slippery to most,
yet obvious once you know that types exist.
Knowing types is a master key for knowing yourself and others.

Types = Geniuses

Each of the 16 types has innate traits, qualities, and characteristics totally differentiable and unique from all the other types. Each type's exceptional abilities, spirit, and talents are genius, and capable of giving each person a global perspective and recognition. Everyone knows there are types of trees, but do not yet know there are types of people. Each type epitomizes a different historical archetype, and typifies a distinctive lifestyle. The type is part of the essence, the core of the person, a psychological blueprint for life. All types are equal, none being better or worse than another. When you are the same type as another person you both share identical qualities and behaviors while not having primarily the pervasive traits and behaviors of other types, and yet both of you are very different unique individuals. No one is not a type, and everyone is but one of the 16 types. What type of person are you?


When you first recognize another person, not just for who they are but also as a type, they feel validated. Then biases about them surprisingly begin to disappear, and then you and the person that you typed change forever. First impressions often allow you to associate someone new with someone you have known in the past. When the new person and a previous person's behaviors replicate each other almost identically, then they are probably the same type.

Types are visible in the sense that each type displays characteristic behaviors. But types are invisible in the sense that each type has the other half of themselves occurring inside themselves, so you will have to go inside yourself and others to know the type, and not simply think you can know a type by seeing them from the outside.

Soon it will become self-evident what type everyone is. Typing will become ubiquitous. How many people do you know that might be the same type as you?

High and Low Personality Traits of the 16 Types

Each type has what can be best described as innate, distinctive, pervasive, and salient personality behavioral characteristics or qualities unique to their type. The pervasiveness of each type's characteristic high and low traits overshadows the appearance of those same traits in all other types, and differentiates them from all the other types. Each type is a natural authority on their traits, always being the most reliable source on their traits. These high and low traits are also called positive and negative traits, or the light and dark sides of the types. These traits are inalienable, incontrovertible, predilections, predictable, enduring, perquisite, and undeniable. These traits are hardwired within each type while the traits of other types can be learned and are like software programs that are added to the hard drive.

Each type's highly specific traits are a 24/7 affair, quotidian behaviors impossible not to occur, privileges for being that type. These traits are a freebie or bonus for being born a type. Each type's traits can be understood as natural inborn gifts, and are how they display their unique genius. Everyone can learn those high traits associated with other types, but can never match the potential development of those traits by the type that is known for those traits. They give each type an advantage over the other types as well being a contribution to the human mix. Sometimes people are born with the high traits of other types as additional gifts added to their own type's innate characteristic traits.

Some of the positive personality traits of the types include being honest, sober, empathetic, athletic, communicative, ethical, and so on while some of the negative traits include lying, depression, lust, addiction, brainwashing, etc. Everyone is a natural authority on the traits inherently concomitant with their type. When anyone develops the high traits of a type, the low traits simultaneously dismantle naturally. When you know the high traits, you can reroute yourself to be that way and stay that way permanently. Positive or negative life events can facilitate the development of high traits.

A common unspoken assumption of type's traits is that everyone really knows what the words for these high and low traits really mean, when usually only the type associated with these traits is capable of expounding endlessly on them because they are the natural authority on those specific qualities. For example, whom do you go to learn how to be radically honest, naturally sobering, or worldly empathetic, and whom do you go to learn how to dismantle habitual lying, chronic depression, or obsessive lust? Who knows what? There is only one place to go to answer all these types of questions — to people who are the types that are born with these traits. Go to the type that knows what you need to learn. What are the things that you need to know about the most, and what types of people do you know who would know about those things?

½+ — The Myths of Perceiving Reality and the Role of the Unconscious

A person initially only sees half of the pixels as they look at the world. The entire other half of reality can only be seen when the unconscious part of them is in full operation. Access to this second half is the balancing part of a person and sees the world in the way the balancing type sees the world.

It is like each GPT sees the world made up of 16 different colored pixels, and they only see one of the sixteen pixels distinctly and with muted clarity 7 others, and the balancing 8 only when they learn to become more conscious of what they are naturally not conscious of. Upon a person seeing all 16 pixels is the world revealed.
