This Trait is part of the Strength of Judgment, A Design of Insatiability, linking the Survival Instinct (Trait 18) to Drive & Stamina (Trait 58). Trait 18 is part of the Collective Understanding (Logic) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.

Trait 18 enjoys discovering, naming and challenging what needs correcting. When we experience dissatisfaction with something, chances are it has lost its vitality. Underneath this dissatisfaction lies a deep concern for human rights, and for what will keep society healthy and in harmony with itself. Those who carry this gate have a gift of critical awareness that directs them to the source of a weakness or imperfection, and focuses their thinking on ways to correct or modify or replace it. It is our way of cleaning out what isn't healthy, or restoring vitality to something that has been corrupted. Our gift is enhanced by impartial discernment, and logic's drive to perfect or fine tune our own skills of critical analysis.

Ushering in a new understanding through identifying what needs correcting is the by-product of the process. Trait 18 also represents the fear of authority and the challenge to that authority. As a Collective gate, it is designed to point out what needs to be corrected at the Collective level, but when used at the personal level it tends to backfire. Without Trait 58's joyful fuel for correction, our dissatisfaction can become merely a constant source of fault finding. This is especially true if our valuable and crucial awareness is no longer productively focused on situations, patterns or institutions, but rather on people's idiosyncrasies and foibles.
