THE LIFE MATRIXis not a test. It is not an acclaimed clinically validated psychometric instrument. It is a self-affirmation format designed to focus a person’s attention upon some generally accepted crucially significant social functioning indicators in the life domains of satisfaction and frustration and a global perspective of an individual’s life situation. THE LIFE MATRIXsolicits responses to carefully crafted affirmative statements and assigns numerical values to them. It is purposely subjective. It is this very subjectivity that makes it so valuable to the respondent. It is their own opinion of their life, not some “expert’s.” This information is useful to the respondent because it organizes and orders one’s complex, multifaceted life circumstances into a coherent and comprehensive whole, revealing potentials for conscious, positively managed change. It is not uncommon for a person to change their perception of a major factor in their life, simply from reflecting upon it during and after its completion. Each response is scored and the scores are summarized into Part, Sector and Domain scores and a Perspective score. THE LIFE MATRIX GRAPHIC PROFILE presentation is then constructed from the assembled numeric score summaries, representing the respondent’s assessment of their own, personal, subjective perceptions of their current social functioning. THE LIFE MATRIX NARRATIVE REPORT is then prepared by doing a pattern and content analysis of THE LIFE MATRIX GRAPHIC PROFILE and prioritizing this response pattern into an interview format using the selected statements and the person’s responses thereto.

 

THE LIFE MATRIX GRAPHIC PROFILE and THE LIFE MATRIX NARRATIVE REPORT derived from it stand alone as self-help devices. They are tools designed to present an individual’s subjective perception of their own current satisfactions and frustrations as these relate to specific indicators of their social functioning in a simple, easily understood, graphic format. These tools are very helpful to anyone who self-administers THE LIFE MATRIX and uses the GRAPHIC PROFILE AND NARRATIVE REPORT on their own for a better grasp of their life situation and making plans to change it. In this way, a person moves toward a more integrated and expanded conscious awareness of their current functioning.  

 

 The greatest potential impact of these tools upon the respondent is fully realized only when utilized in a structured VIDEOSYNERGY® LIFE MATRIX VIDEO FEEDBACK INTERVIEW, or an AUDIO AUTOSYNTHESIS LIFE MATRIX AUDIO FEEDBACK INTERVIEW In these processes the respondent interprets the pattern analysis of the responses to THE LIFE MATRIX statements, discussing and synthesizing the meaning of this pattern in their own terms during a programmed video, or audio feedback session.

 

When employed in a VIDEOSYNERGY® LIFE MATRIX INTERVIEW conducted by a VIDEOSYNERGIST, THE LIFE MATRIX NARRATIVE REPORT is used to focus a person’s attention upon their overall perception of their life as they are guided through a video feedback session in which they are videotaped reading each statement and their response to it and then discussing their perception of the meaning of the statement and the reason(s) for their particular response. This discussion is videotaped and played back to the client for their review, after being carefully and specifically instructed by the VIDEOSYNERGIST regarding when and how to interrupt and respond to the playback. They are “feeding back” to themselves, getting an “objective” look at their “subjective” world. They are becoming more self-aware, more self-knowledgeable – they are self-actualizing, integrating and expanding their consciousness.
