The art and science of feng shui takes into consideration many different aspects to the environment before it is deemed to be a positive influence or a hinderance. As an example, we can say that living at the end of a T-juncture is a bad alignment of a street in relation to a house, but it would be overly simplistic to say that house should be avoided completely, based on one flaw.

The house"s age, orientation and the physical features to the surrounding natural landscape will all influence each other. As well, there is a personal component. This personal component can factor in a person"s age, marital status, occupation, personality, life style habits, and energy level. A house that could be good for one person may not be for another because of this. And this also explains why one family member or co-worker might de better than another in the same residential or commercial space.

With age, young people tend to be more "yang" and they often can handle, even thrive, in very stimulating environments more than an older person who might need their home or work space to me more "yin" and more calm in order to focus or be productive. This can dovetail into the topic of clutter because some people do relatively well in messy environments and it doesn"t inhibit their creativity or productivity, while for others clutter can be a constant source of stress or distraction.

With relationships and marital status, there are some house types which can make it harder to be in a marriage and can cause loneliness or alientation. This house type might not even bother someone who is a loner or who wants to take a break from relationships. One house type that really challenges sustaining relationships is one which faces North or South and built between 1964-1983. I refer to it as "the Divorce House" in my first book. And yet, a house that faces southwest and built between 1984-2003 is a house type that often makes it easy for a single woman to have a lot of men interested in her. These are just a tiny sampling of the many different house types that have personalities based on when they were built and what direction they face.

What a person does for work can be helped or undermined by the feng shui, such as the house that attracts law suits being good for an attorney to live in, but not necessarily an individual with any other occupation. There are building types that naturally attract people who are concerned with their health and beauty and sexuality and these end up being good locations for businesses related to fashion, spas, nutrition centers, hair and nail salons or jewelry stores.

We have that saying that "people look like their dogs" and people often match the personality of their homes. Some have entry doors that are hidden behind big gates and landscaping and these are often private people. Then there are showcase houses, lit up every night with flood lights and often the person living there is very gregarious and extroverted.

Life style habits can be enhanced or thwarted by the feng shui of a house and there are some spaces which feed addictive behaviors and procrastination, while other house types that can help people stay more disciplined.

Yin-Yang theory can come into play when observing how a person"s energy level is affected by their surroudings, such as a chronically dark house making people lethargic and melancholy while a very bright house can stimulate, even over stimulate the occupants.
