TetraMap is an efficient mental model for mass application across various population and genres, given its intuitive reference to nature elements. Current times call for high efficiency in response to volatile environment. As such, traditional learning models / approaches which presuppose time resource may no longer be relevant. What TetraMap has to offer is a common language that can be easily-grasped, to heighten self and other awareness and individual value-add in specific contexts for expediency.

TetraMap’s Four Elements of Behaviour
The terminology is a simple but deep cross-cultural metaphor of Nature. TetraMap is a non-prescriptive framework that enables people to intuitively make sense of their own observations of behaviour - great for understanding how a person is different in general. Other models are better for understanding how a person is different in detail
Hippocrates’ Four Humours
Jung’s Psychological Types
Jung observed four major types, each of which could be either extroverted or introverted. TetraMap distinguishes Jung’s extroverted Sensing and Intuitive, and his introverted Thinking and Feeling.
Marston-based DISC Model
In his book entitled The Emotions of Normal People Marston held that behaviour depends on whether people are either passive or active and whether they perceive the environment to be favourable or antagonistic. TetraMap avoids the negative connotations of his terminology, while keeping the same intent.
Ned Herrmann’s Whole Brain® Model
Herrmann’s model relates behaviour to the left/right and cerebral/limbic quadrants of the brain. TetraMap gives more weight to the distinction between the thinking and doing attributes.
