The Best Approach to Buddhist for Every Personality Type

October 22, 2021


This article by Brian Clark on the best approach to Buddhist for every personality type is a great reminder to us all. It is not a one-size-fits-all approach; it is all about finding the best approach that fits the needs of your personality.

One of the best things about Buddhism is that no two people are exactly the same and that is why it is so important to find the best approach that works for you. It is not always easy to find a specific approach to Buddhism but it is also not always easy to find a specific "best" approach. That’s why it is important to learn as much as you can about your own unique personality and what type of Buddhism works best for you.

I can't speak to the best approach for every personality type but I can share some of the best approaches for a few different personality types.

I am an introvert who likes solitude and quietness (something I was born with). I also find that I am really good at meditation and yoga and I am able to stay calm and centered during stressful situations. I also know that I have a love for chocolate (something I was born with).


When I first started meditating I was really self-conscious about how I was feeling. I didn't know how to explain it without sounding weird. I had a lot of self-doubts I would just end up eating all the chocolate I could and it wasn't very good for me.

My parents were against the whole thing as well.

When I first began meditating and practicing yoga I was struggling to find a reason why I was feeling this way. I felt like I was just missing something. It was always so hard to explain. Now I can see it a lot better and understand why I have these feelings. It's because I am not the person I thought I was, and I have an innate need to feel better.

When we first begin meditating and practicing yoga, we are usually very afraid of the outcome. We are fearful that we will experience the opposite of what we expect and the opposite of what we desire. For example, I am not very good at yoga because I am not confident in my ability to maintain perfect form. I am in an unbalanced emotional state and I am constantly looking for an excuse to feel bad.


That's why when you practice meditation or yoga, you first think and speak in metaphors. 

You are not trying to achieve specific things in your body. In meditation, you are trying to find a state of mind that is free from fear and anxiety. In yoga, you are trying to maintain a relaxed, balanced, peaceful state of mind. So the first thing you should do is figure out what you are afraid of and what you desire.

One of the most important things you can do as a Buddhist is to realize that there are no absolutes. Each of us is an individual, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to practicing and living as a person. This makes it easier to understand what you are going to learn in this particular class, or how to practice a particular meditation or yoga technique.


So what we're looking for is the best way to approach a particular aspect of our personal life. 

Whether it's spiritual or otherwise, we want to figure out how to approach it and how to make it a part of who we are. In Buddhism, there is no such thing as “wrong” or “right,” only different approaches to the same thing. We can find things to agree on, or we can find different approaches.

And that is the key to Buddhism. It's not just about the right thing, it's about how to make it a part of who we are. This is a great class to do in the summer months because you can have two weeks free and work in your pajamas. However, it's also a great class to do in the winter months, because it teaches you how to make the winter months a part of you and your life.
