The Logic Indicator
In the column to the right of the Self Profile is the Logic indicator.
At the point of making a decision, a person either leans mostly on the "facts" of the situation (L above the line) or they rely more on how they "feel" about the situation ... their intuition (L below the line). In our example, the L falls below the center line so we would say that at the point
of decision, this person will rely on their intuition, or what they feel will be the correct decision.
The "range" of a person's profile is the distance between the trait that is furthest above the center line in the Self Profile and the trait that is furthest below the line. Most of the time, the L value falls somewhere between the highest and lowest traits.
On the other hand, as the L moves further DOWN the column, outside the range of the person's profile, we say that the person relies on how they "feel" about the situation to the point of becoming impulsive. They "feel" that the decision is the right one and they act.
Whether the Logic indicator is above or below the line is neither good nor bad. It simply indicates whether a person uses a fact-based or feeling-based method of decision making.
