To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.
Nicholas Haines, Matthew Newnham and Janet Carter sit at the heart of the Five Institute as a core team, but all our work here is in reality, a massive collaborative effort between people that believe we can create a planet and a future that is healthy, happy, sustainable and based on Kindness.
Nothing is created in isolation.

We'll ask you for your name and email address so we can generate and send you a unique password to access the online Vitality Test questionnaire.
Once you've completed the questionnaire we'll calculate the results and give you access to your report and free content.
Via a short online survey, The Vitality Test is measuring your personal balance of five distinct Energies that the ancient Chinese first observed and identified nearly 3,500 years ago.
The Five Energies are Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal
Your own blend of these Energies will predispose you to have certain feelings, thoughts and values. They influence how to see and respond to the world.
No, we're a Box Free Zone!
The many of personality tests available have a tendency to put you in a Box, with a style of being and behaving or they are polarity based - measuring where you stand between two poles. For example are you more Introvert or Extrovert.
The advantage of these tests it that they are relatively easy to design and create a sense of certainty and security for people.
The disadvantage is that Boxes tend to end up limiting people, or don't quite explain the full variance of behaviour.
And polarity based thinking can be quite divisive as it pushes people in one camp or another, which is the last thing society needs.
The Vitality Test doesn't measure along a polarity instead it's identifying a pattern of behaviour with many sides to it.
And we're certainly a Box Free Zone!
The Vitality Test was created by Nicholas Haines. It is based on his 35 years in private practice working as a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine and international speaker.
For the majority of his time in private practice, Nicholas had at least a six-month waiting list to work with him. The Vitality Test aims to make these profound insights about our relationships, our value to other, how we see, respond and interact with the world freely available to a much wider audience.
The questionnaire is very accurate, but it is still measuring what you are telling us. If for example you were under extreme stress when you took the test, then it may shift your Energy balance slightly.
But don’t worry, the questionnaire will have still picked up the core of ‘who’ you are and your predominant Energies, and that is absolutely fine to work with.
Your primary Energy that determines your profile will stay the same, but there may be slight fluctuations in the other Energies as we age.
For example, our Water Energy becomes more pronounced as we age, so some of the traits associated with that Energy - such as wanting to leave a mark or a legacy behind us increases as we age.
Other Energies will also change slightly, but the core Energy of who you are will remain consistent.
We believe that the power of knowing your Energy type and how that impacts on you, the world and others is so important for our planet for now and future generations that we want to make The Vitality Test available to everyone regardless of their circumstance or situation.
It's our way of spreading a little kindness.

At the Five Institute, we believe that just because you give us your email address (which we need to send you your unique password) it doesn’t give us the right to bombard you with endless emails.
Once you’ve found out your Vitality Test profile, we’ll send you a series of five emails with some guidance around your results along with some supporting material, and after that... we have an occasional newsletter or notification. And that’s it!
And if you don’t want to receive our occasional newsletter or notification, where we share our latest insights, ways to support you, and news on how our community are Choosing Kindness, then that’s cool, we can sort that.
At the Five Institute we do things differently, and we’re proud of it.
