The great unspoken truth of the world is that it is entirely based on psychology. The current dominant psychological paradigm of the world is the one devised by the elite to legitimise and facilitate their rule. It is a master-slave psychology where everyone is fitted into a power and status hierarchy, and those at the top dominate everyone below. It is a pyramid structure. An entirely new psychology is needed: a Round Table where no one dominates anyone else.

The world should be managed according to a psychological paradigm where self-esteem, happiness, aspiration, and personal fulfilment are given primacy, rather than the current economic one where money, capitalism, materialism and consumerism constitute the dominant ideology of our age. Capitalist economics is a master-slave ideology – those with most capital dominate everyone else. The masters are subjects and the slaves are objects. The Round Table psychology paradigm is about treating everyone as an individual worthy of the highest respect, and where there are no masters and no slaves. The most meritorious rise to the top in society, but they are not driven by the need to dominate others and they do not seek massive, disproportionate rewards.

Can you flesh out the Round Table psychological paradigm that, instead of favoring the elite, is designed to ensure that each and every person is given the maximum opportunity to find personal fulfilment? The new paradigm should be informed by the well-known psychological models for categorising different types of people: Myers-Briggs personality types, Enneagrams (deriving from the Ancient Egyptians and Pythagoras), the Four Humours of Hippocrates, Sheldon’s Somatypes, and the Belbin team roles.
