Like Apollo. Top achievers are calm enough to plan, weigh realities and make objective decisions. Nietzsche named this thinking style "Apollonian," after Apollo, a serene and unemotional god.
Like Dionysus. They are also emotional enough to bring passion to everything they do. Nietzsche named this thinking style “Dionysian,” after Dionysus, an impulsive and hotheaded god.
We see this kind of dual process at work in the styles of many people who build great dynasties. Donald Trump, for example, is passionate and flamboyant, yet he stays grounded in the numbers.
Interesting: People who stay planted firmly on one side of the equation by lacking either passion or objectivity may be successful, but they rarely build monumental things.
