Why does Adult Human Development matter?
Adult human development is something everyone can develop, completely independent of traditional measures of intelligence.
It relates to the embodied level of complexity an individual can navigate in the face of uncertainty relating directly to one’s personal sense of reality. Each progression in Adult Human Development increases the tolerance for uncomfortable experiences and the priority of “Sense Making” over “Right or Wrong” connects the evolution of these stages.
