What is your Spiral Dynamics center of gravity? Curious to get a sense of how most Actualized users see the world. 

As a reminder, this is about ego development and is not related to how many nondual insights you've had :) 

Your "center of gravity" is the stage that you most often occupy, not the highest stage you occasionally dip into.

I purposefully scrambled the poll choices so that people don't just pick the "highest" one unconsciously ;)

Why is there not an option for red? I'm pissed.

There are higher and lower stages missing.

I guess I could just say I'm centered at Turquoise, but as the stage has so little in common with later stages, that wouldn't be accurate.

Outside Gravity =

From enviroment (60%)

Purple (3%) - I dont want to write it. 

Red (5%) - Village dude.

Blue (25%) - Family. 

Orange (30%) - Business, uni and city.

From what I watched (40%):

Blue (7%) - TikTok and YT comments. 

Orange (5%) - Business content.

Yellow (28%) - Yellow youtuber and spotify podcast. 

Learn :

What I need to learn actually to question and contemplate lower stage and integrate it to myself. I have big tendencies to just total ignoring what they are talkin about.

Integrate the value of the enviroment that I lived in help to survive a lot, thanks to SD. Noticing the different between healthy value and unhealthy value that have been integrated in the self is important here. 

Integrating Red stage give me huge stability in my mental health. Be more men and assertive. 

I notice my mind have swing learning, in a time I like to study lower stage but eventually I got feeling enough. I have urge to learn higher spiral, then back again to lower stage.

Ya... more options needed.

Also... this assumes people know their center of gravity.  As they talk about, it's not something easily see for oneself. 

Like I doubt there's 8 people on this forum who would take part in this questionnaire who would be at a Stage Yellow center of gravity.  

There's also the assumption are even centers of gravity, which has been debated.

I would say green/ yellow. I went ahead and said green because I think saying I'm yellow would be a little too cocky lol.

@Fearey I'm aware that there's other stages missing - that's intentional on my part. Nobody who is chilling on Actualized.org has a center of gravity below Blue. In fact, I highly doubt anyone here is at Blue. My guess is the vast majority of folks are at Orange and Green with some Yellow and *maybe* a couple of people peaking into Turquoise. Coral is not a real stage yet and basically doesn't exist beyond likely a small handful of people on the entire planet. If you're at Coral, I highly doubt you'd be responding to this forum post. But maybe lol. I'd be curious to hear more about your experience and understanding of what stage you're at and why.

@Matt23 See response above about more options needed. 

Agree, it's not a scientific poll haha just put it out there for fun.

Center of gravity, like ego development itself, is a construct. Of course it doesn't exist. It's just a label describing an experience in the relative world that some people identify with. I try not to take it too seriously while also not overlooking its utility. 

What stage do you feel you most often orient from in your day-to-day life?

I went ahead and said green. I resonate with a lot of yellow but I'm not embodied in it. I also feel like I'm still integrating parts of green
