In this article additional information in the form of a case example of Ron Paul 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 ).
Estimated Level of Intuition (Brief Analysis) :
According to Project Vote Smart (https://www.votesmart.org/candidate/biography/296/ron-paul; obtained on 11-09-2011), Ron Paul was born 8/20/1935. The Project Vote Smart web site also showed the following :
MD, Duke University School of Medicine, 1967
BS, Gettysburg College, 1957”
Medical Practice, Obstetrician-Gynecologist, 1968-1996
Air National Guard, 1965-1968
Captain, United States Air Force, 1963-1965
Representative, United States House of Representatives, 1996-present
Candidate, United States President, Republican, 2008
Candidate, United States President, Libertarian, 1988
Representative, United States House of Representatives, District 22, 1976-1977, 1979-1985
Candidate, United States Senate, 1984
Candidate, United States House of Representatives, 1974”
From the CNBC (https://www.cnbc.com/id/45052146/; obtained on 11-9-2011) :
Business Background: As a private-practice obstetrician, Ron Paul built a small business, and his concern for rank-and-file entrepreneurs shows up in his libertarian arguments for reforming the federal financial system.”
Holland Code : The first or primary Holland Code would appear to be Investigative (I) suggesting that he resembles people most in Investigative occupations. Ron Paul has appeared to spend the much of his professional career as an obstetrician-gynecologist. 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 Investigative Occupations, the three letter code for Obstetrician is IRS (Investigative, Realistic, Social) and the three letter code for Pilot, Airplane is IRE (Investigative, Realistic, Enterprising). The three letter code for Writer, Prose, Fiction, and Nonfiction is AIE (Artistic, Investigative, Enterprising). The three letter code for Politician is ESA (Enterprising, Social, Artistic).
It is estimated that he would have a relatively high level of Intuition. Some Information supporting this estimate includes the following :
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.’ ”
Ron Paul was against Use of Military Force Against Iraq. Some information supporting this conclusion :
According to Project Vote Smart (https://www.votesmart.org/bill/3083/12790/296/use-of-military-force-against-iraq/; obtained on 11-09-2011),
“Legislation-Joint Resolution – Joint Resolution Passed (House) – Oct. 10, 2002 (Key vote)
Title: Use of Military Force Against Iraq
Vote Smart’s Synopsis:
Vote to adopt a joint resolution to authorize the use of United States Armed Forces against Iraq.”
“Ron Paul voted Nay on this legislation.”
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.
