There are two opposite person’s approaches to life: planned and spontaneous.

People who are dominated by a planned approach to life prefer an orderly, structured environment with a certain system of regulations. They are organized and consistent, make sure that everything goes according to plan, feel at ease when everything is known in advance. Their strategy is PLANNING AND CONTROL.

People who have a predominantly spontaneous approach to life are focused on direct perception. They believe that life is changeable and unpredictable, are open to new information and experience, act situationally, according to circumstances. Their strategy is to BE FLEXIBLE AND LIVE IN THE FLOW.
