In this article additional information in the form of a case example of Herman Cain is presented for Prescription #9 of “Some Prescriptions For Productive Goals” which is : Consider voting for candidates (e.g., President of the United States) based upon levels of intuition in addition to other areas you believe deserve consideration (see “The Voter Scorecard”, Healthy Change : Part Five — Some Prescriptions For Productive Goals, #1 ).

From the CNBC (https://www.cnbc.com/id/45052296; obtained on 11-12-2011) web site, Herman Cain was born 12-13-1945. The CNBC web site also showed the following :
Current Occupation: motivational speaker, author, Baptist minister
CV: corporate executive at Coca-Cola and Pillsbury (1972-1988). CEO of Godfather’s Pizza (1988-1996), Chairman, Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank (1992-1996), CEO, National Restaurant Association (1996-1999).
Business Background: A longtime Pillsbury executive, Cain is best known for buying the ailing Godfather Pizza chain and rescuing it with an unorthodox strategy of shutting hundreds of stores to focus on per-store profits. But Cain’s business resume ranges from macro—see his tenure at the Fed’s Kansas City branch under Alan Greenspan—to the mundane: he managed Burger King’s 400-store Philadelphia region in the 1980s. Now he’s vowing to campaign as he would run a business—or his administration: spending money as it comes in and avoiding debt.”
: The first or primary Holland Code would appear to be Enterprising (E) suggesting that he resembles people most in Enterprising occupations. Herman Cain has appeared to be involved in a number of occupational endeavors of which he has appeared to spend much of his professional career in business leadership positions. In Appendix B Self-Directed Search Form R The Occupations Finder (found in “Making Vocational Choices” Third Edition, copyright 1973, 1985, 1992, 1997 by Psychological Assessment Resources Inc. Pages 267-271) under Enterprising Occupations, the three letter code for both President (any industry) and Financial Institution Manager is ESR (Enterprising, Social, Realistic), Business Manager is ESC (Enterprising, Social, Conventional), and both Lobbyist and Politician is ESA (Enterprising, Social, Artistic). The three letter code for President (Financial Institution) is SEI (Social, Enterprising, Investigative), the three letter code for Minister, Priest, Rabbi is SAE (Social, Artistic, Enterprising) and the three letter code for Announcer (Radio and TV Broadcasting) is SCE (Social, Conventional, Enterprising). The three letter code for Mathemetician is IER (Investigative, Enterprising, Realistic). The three letter code for Writer, Prose, Fiction, and Nonfiction is AIE (Artistic, Investigative, Enterprising). The author could not find a Holland Code for Chief Executive Officer in the Occupations Finder. The two letter “interest code” for Chief Executives EC (Enterprising, Conventional) at O*NET ONLINE (https://www.onetonline.org/link/summary/11-1011.00
; obtained 11-12-2011).
It is estimated that he would have somewhere between a relatively medium to a relatively low level of Intuition. Some Information supporting this estimate includes the following :
1. In the dissertation titled “The Relationship Between the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory”, copyrighted and originally published in 1992, on pages 195-196 (information was referenced from Myers I.B. & McCaulley, M.H., 1985, “Manual : A guide to the development and use of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.” Palo Alto, CA : Consulting Psychologists Press.) the author wrote : “Sensing and intuition are ways of becoming aware of things, people, events, or ideas, being attuned to the flow of events. Sensing is perception by the senses and establishes what exists. The focus is on what is presently happening and what is real. Persons oriented toward sensing often enjoy the present, are realistic, observe well with a good memory for details, and are practical. Intuition enables perception of possibilities, meanings, and relationships through insight. Intuitive perceptions can be hunches, creative discoveries, and seeing patterns among events, originating in the unconscious. Persons oriented toward intuition may neglect present reality, be imaginative, theoretical, abstract, future oriented, or creative.”
2. In the book, “The 16 PF : Personality in Depth”, written by Heather Birkett Cattell, Ph.D. (Copyright 1989 by the Institute for Personality and Ability Testing, Inc.) in “Chapter 11 Factor M : Intuiting and Sensing as Contrasting Perceptual Modes” she wrote : “Human beings have two modes of perceiving and, as individuals, tend to favor one over another. One mode relies more on immediate sensory experience, deriving awareness from direct contact of five senses with the environment. The other relies less on the immediacy of the senses, being more focused on how information about the information becomes organized with an inner scheme of connecting thoughts, speculations, and subliminal connections…Factor M bears strong resemblance to one of the bipolar dimensions in Jung’s type theory of human temperament…Having recognized the similarity between M+ and M- and intuition and sensation functions has allowed me to draw on observation amassed by Jungians, to aid in my understanding of M+ and M- examinees.”
3. Significant correlations (probability less than .01) between the identified 16 PF Primary Scale Abstractedness (M) on the 16 PF and Intuition (.41) on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Abstractedness (M) on the 16 PF and Sensation (-.41) on the MBTI are shown on page 87 in the 16 PF Fifth Edition With Updated Norms Administrator’s Manual (1993, 1994, 2002). Decimals are used in this presentation of correlations versus identified as being omitted in the 16 PF Fifth Edition Manual on page 87. The 16 PF Fifth Edition Manual With Updated Norms Administrator’s Manual (1993, 1994, 2002) also shows that Holland Themes can be predicted by a combination of 16 PF factors. It is noteworthy that 16PF factor M contributes to significantly predicting Investigative (M+), Artistic (M+), and Conventional (M-) Holland Code Themes and is not a significant predictor for any other Holland Code Themes (see pages 116-118 in the 16 PF Fifth Edition Manual With Updated Norms). These findings appear to at least be consistent with and seem to support the results of the dissertation : “The Relationship Between the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory. Specifically, from “Healthy Change : Part One” published in The Hygiology Post on June 29, 2011 from the aforementioned dissertation of the author : “… The Canonical Correlation Analysis Summary results on page 157 included : ‘The results indicated that Intuition was consistently and positively associated with A and I Holland codes and negatively associated with the C Holland code.’ (Content in parentheses was omitted.)…Q-factor Analysis Summary results on pages 167-168 included : ‘High MBTI Intuition scores were positively associated with Investigative and Artistic and lowest on Enterprising and Conventional codes.’ “
Herman Cain, it seems, was for Use of Military Force Against Iraq. Some information supporting this conclusion :
Here is a transcript exerpt from 10-16-2011 while he was on Meet The Press (https://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44908788/ns/meet_the_press-transcripts/t/meet-press-transcript-october/; obtained on 11-12-2011) :
“MR. GREGORY: Were the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan a mistake?
MR. CAIN: I don’t think the war in Iraq was a mistake because there were a lot of other reasons we needed to go to Iraq, and there have been a lot of benefits that have come out of Iraq. Now, that being said, I don’t agree with the president’s approach to drawdown 40,000 troops and basically leave that, leave that country open to attacks by Iran. Iran has already said that they want to wait till America leaves…
MR. GREGORY: So President Cain would want, even beyond the deadline, leave American troops there?
MR. CAIN: I would want to leave American troops there if that was what the commanders on the ground suggested. And I believe that that’s what they are saying.”
The candidates the author has have thus far been looking at include the current 2012 United States Presidential Candidates President Barack Obama, Jr., Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Jon Huntsman, Jr. The author will be examining an estimated level of intuition (or, sensation-intuition) and their positions on Use of Military Force against Iraq (prior to The Iraq War commencement).
The candidates themselves or their representatives are each invited to comment, make recommendations, and/or add to the information in The Hygiology Post. Also, all of the aforementioned United States Presidential candidates are invited to be interviewed (for almost any purpose and in basically any format they choose to be interviewed) by and write an article for publication in The Hygiology Post.
The author plans to expound upon Prescription #9 (Prescription #9 of “Some Prescriptions For Productive Goals” is : Consider voting for candidates [e.g., President of The United States] based upon levels of intuition in addition to other areas you believe deserve consideration) with additional information in The Hygiology Post.
The Hygiology Post welcomes feedback from readers on all six parts of the series (individually and/or as a total package) upon completion of the series as to whether the articles help fulfill its vision and mission.
