Type 1 Ego: Ego-Resent

Below are descriptions of Oscar Ichazo's ego type 1 fixation, trap, holy idea, passion, and virtue reinterpreted for today's personality types.

Type 1 Fixation and Trap

Fixation: Resentment comes from trying to live up to standards for what's acceptable and right while others aren't.

Trap: Perfection comes from striving to attain or model an ideal that is free from flaws or criticism.

The fixation points to the mental preoccupation of the ego and the trap seems like the way out but keeps the individual stuck in the fixation.

Type 1 Holy Idea

Holy Idea: Holy perfection is about discovering the perfection of the world as it is instead of trying to impose your own set of standards upon it.

The holy idea is the actual way out of the ego fixation.

Type 1 Passion

Passion: Anger is an energy that corrects and improves what's unacceptable. It's primarily directed at myself and secondarily at the world around me.

The passion is the emotional energy that serves the fixation and trap.

Type 1 Virtue

Virtue: Serenity appears when you become more accepting of things as they are instead of demanding that they meet your standards for how things should be.

The virtue is what appears when the passion subsides.
