Three parts of the mind
Long ago, experts in the field of psychology (Plato, Aristotle, etc.) determined that there are three parts of the mind that we each have. These three parts make up our whole person. These three parts represent how we feel, do, and think during our individual creative processes. What we feel impacts how we will do and that influences what we think (in that order). As complex human beings, these traits combine to be unique from person to person and are hard to detect in shorter windows of time without the help of reliable assessment tools.
