Show Notes

  • Intro From Joe Polish
    • How many of us have heard these things: “Sit still, stop talking, can’t you just stay focused?” Alex Charfen certainly did, but instead of seeing those behaviors as negative, he has embraced them as part of an Entrepreneurial Personality Type (EPT).  (01:33)
  • The “Three Awakenings” of the entrepreneur. (03:55)
    • You know you are different – Alex asks the audience when they knew (2:30)
    • Internal vs. external motivation – (2:45)
    • The desire and need to contribute: give more, do more. (03:14)
  • Common traits of entrepreneurs: (04:00)
    • Future focused
    • Visionary
    • Perceive unique connections
    • High Processing speed
    • Momentum Based
    • Need to experience to believe
  • “You have the solution before anyone knew there was a problem.”
  • “What if this is not just entrepreneurs, but a meta personality type – different from everyone else – and science has missed it?”( 06:24)
  • “We’re not like everyone else, and we know it.” (06:44)
  • “We’re a fragile type and we don’t understand the rest of the world… They break us” (7:24)
  • We hear things like: “Sit down” calm Down, you’re a little over-reacting.”
  • Systems, psychology, schools hold us in place. “The systems and processes in schools give us no relief from constraint.” (7:55)
  • “The foundation of our personality type is momentum” 3 stages: (08:56)
    • Flow – in a state of momentum, it feels great, like a drug or chemical high; we’re physically stronger and cognitively smarter,
    • Challenge: experiencing institutional drag from systems, pressure and noise
    • Constraint: causes symptoms of depression, adhd, decline. What’s the solution? Remove the constraints, and symptoms disappear.
  • How do we move forward? Success leaves clues (10:18)
    • Declare it: “The day you declare you are an entrepreneur, is the day you declare you are a product and a liability.” We stop asking for protection and support (10:33)
    • Embrace it: “We are the entrepreneurial personality type: the rest of the world is our market.” (11:15)
    • The Contribution Equation: “If you lower pressure and noise, by transparently asking for protection and support, your skills and abilities will show.  (11:25)
  • There’s nothing wrong with you… and you are not alone. (11:54)
