Ascending & Descending
An ascending baseline means optimism. A descending baseline means pessimism, tiredness or depression. A level baseline indicates a healthy
balance between optimism and pessimism.
Convex lines are where they rise followed by a descent which indicates a fading of initial enthuseiam and energy. Could indicate a good starter
who gets easily bored, someone who gives up and is a bad finisher, lack of determination.
Concave lines are where they dip in the centre and rise again and indicate a recovery of strength of energy of comeback which therefore shows
courage, stamina and determination.
A person with a straight baseline is tense and over disciplined. A very wavy baseline signals a person who is
on an emotional roller coaster.
