Physical intelligence: strength to get resources and courage to take a hit!

Physical intelligence (PhQ) is the ability of an organism to remain alive in all situations and to continue itself in subsequent generations.

PhQ is formed, both genetically and in the process of education, with the formation of character and basic attitudes: who you are, how you survive, what strategies you use, how you continue in future generations.

Life is an active form of existence of matter. And therefore, the purpose of life is to survive!
Therefore, all living beings are fighting for life through movement.
In general, the main thing that distinguishes the living from the non-living is movement. And not just movement, but "ideal movement", in which the minimum amount of energy expended gives the highest result - production.
The task of every living being is to build its resource extraction system in a state of relative safety. That is, everything in the world is permeated with the struggle for resources. Therefore, there is a "food chain": who wins.
Who are you in this chain?

Banana-Monkey-Lion - they are all also living organisms in the big world of nature, they all have one goal - to survive, but each has a different survival strategy.

By analogy with nature, you can build a typology in the Banana-Monkey-Lion business.

"Lion" is the king of the jungle, the top of the "food chain".
The lion is the main one, he has already won many times, so he does not make a thousand jumps on the roe deer, then exhausted from lack of energy ... The lion observes, studies in what area the roe deer, how fast it moves, crouches ... and with one jump or one running jerk overtakes the prey, as a rule, achieving success the first time!
Main strategy is an attack!
If preparatory maneuvers are needed to achieve success, Leo will make them, but all the same, the final jump will be one and definitely victorious. If you need to take a hit, then the lion will fight for the whole pride! Yes, and the whole pride will follow its leader, because everyone knows who for many years provided them with food and survival in a "fair community".
Leo is not afraid of anything, he himself takes all the possible risks, because he himself is the RISK for others and he himself is the SAFETY for himself! He can create any change himself, he has both courage and strength for this, but he does not create, but controls the risk, like the law of justice - his goal is to preserve the entire chain in nature, so he is most worried about others - about the pride (about employees), about a common culture and purpose!
The best lions are creators, they build "systems" - businesses, communities, in fact, change the world! Everything is brought to a logical conclusion. The worst Lions are not Lions, they are individuals of a despotic type.
In business, "Leo" is an active, managerial, working business owner or a reliable top manager who cares about the profitability of the company and the team.
If "Leo" hires "other Lions" - these are great teams that create transnational corporations and global projects.

"Monkey" - the object of attack for the Lion, the means of his subsistence. And at the same time, this is the "middle management" of companies, most of all afraid of risks, therefore panicking, rushing about, sitting on "2, 3 chairs", that is, at several jobs, in an attempt to "build their own security." The main weak point is the "dispersion of attention" of the monkeys. Such a defocusing does not allow him to become the main leader, because avoiding risks and scattering responsibility is not possible to gather his will into a fist and achieve grandiose success. Therefore, success can be abrupt and temporary. Due to the fact that the brain of "monkeys" is constantly stressed due to fear of risks, they cannot be in a state of deep composure and calmness like Leos. All this forms the image of "monkeys" as impulsive, explosive or emotionally unstable. The advantage of monkeys is the speed of change. They are good performers. If you give clear instructions and technology to "monkeys", they will quickly and efficiently perform it. They are also good at teamwork , divided into small groups with a focus on creativity, but the group should be led by a type closer to Leo, for the "Monkeys" themselves are a very recalcitrant type and obey only a quiet force.
The best monkeys are good team players, creatives, advertisers. The worst monkeys are latent toxic destructors, depreciators. The main strategy of "monkeys" - running away from risks. And the main value is team creative work.
If we are dealing with a "monkey entrepreneur", then as a rule, this is a violent bright figure who hires "Monkeys" and "Bananas", while the costs of maintaining such business models will always be optimal, because the monkeys can work themselves. But businesses do not achieve high profitability, since the "monkeys" are still afraid of risks and therefore afraid of partnerships in which you can earn big money.

"Banana" is an almost immovable subject, an object of attack for Monkeys.
This subject is like an object, he does not control his will and is an easily mined resource for others. The main strategy is to freeze, become invisible and multiply in "descendants".
The advantage of "Banana" is fullness and obedience. As a rule, these are well-educated specialists, quietly and calmly performing their tasks at the level of lower management. It is difficult for them to reach middle management because of their impenetrable nature.
The best "bananas" are reliable watchmen of the teams. The worst "bananas" are chronic bankrupts.
If we are dealing with a "banana entrepreneur", it is usually a quiet investor hiring "Monkeys" and "young Lions", but the costs of maintaining such business models will always be higher than others.

And how sales with such types will be built, we will consider later.

Task: draw up a business system by watching a movie Lion King.

The moral is: Don't be a banana! Take action! Live! Just Do It!
