TetraMap was only introduced to me in my later years. Thus when I reflect on my personality and character during my school days and during my career as a military pilot, I could see how my Elemental preference (Air/Water) had helped to achieve the goals that I had set out for myself and at the same time how the other Elements (Earth/Fire) had helped in situations that warranted me to adapting to show these preferences. I thus know the great value that TetraMap had to offer and I have internalised it to ensure it becomes part of life.
