Prominent South Kona-based psychiatrist Drew Ross, M.D., founder and president of Spiritual Personality, has just announced an innovative system to categorize personality. While previous systems focused primarily on behavior traits, patterns of communication or self-image, Dr. Ross’s new system is based on analysis of the deeper desires present at the core spiritual level.
“The system is not a medical or clinical service,” says Ross, a board-certified psychiatrist in practice 17 years. “A subject’s spiritual personality type has everything to do with how best to approach spiritual growth, but it also has to do with other more worldly issues such as relationships, career and communication with others,” says Ross. “The system can allow a greater respect for spiritual differences, in that there is not just one spiritual path but many. That creates an opportunity for people to reach their deepest spiritual potential.”
According to Ross, old-school systems used methods with descriptors that later became household terms such as “introverts,” “extroverts,” “dramatic” or “self-absorbed.” While these are valid, Dr. Ross also believes there’s a place for a new system that can provide detailed information about a person’s type as well as custom analysis of the challenges and options needed for spiritual growth.
In what may prove to be a controversial move, Ross has made the new system available to the public without conducting years of statistical research first, as is the norm in most medical/scientific circles. His new system was based on years of working with patients on their goals of spiritual growth.
Ross was educated at Johns Hopkins, Jefferson, University of North Carolina and Harvard. He became well known for his research into the minds of serial killers, and has now shifted his focus to the study of spiritual growth. Users can take the free 25-question survey at http://www.spiritualpersonality.com to discover their spiritual personality type. Basic assessments are free; premium assessment is just $5.00. Initial public reaction to the system has been overwhelmingly positive, according to Ross. For more information, contact Dr. Ross at 808-322-2400
