An ethogram is a catalogue or inventory of behaviours or actions exhibited by an animal used in ethology.

A program for analyzing human behavior and self-tracking behavior.
Calculation of the most basic life programs (patterns), trends and expected results of life.
The program allows you to better understand and clarify your own behavior and the behavior of other people.
The program is based on scientific research, but is not a scientific product.
A unified scientific theory of human behavior does not yet exist and it will not be soon.
The purpose of the program is orientation in people’s behavior.

Instinct-Based Behavior Patterns
Basic human instincts calculated in the program:

  1. Food instinct
  2. The instinct of reproduction.
  3. Aggressive instinct
  4. The instinct of knowledge (search for information)
  5. Territorial instinct.
  6. Parental instinct.
  7. Domination instinct (social rank).

Viral behavior programs (artificial)

Extraction of vital resources by a hired worker.

Starting life resources and finishing resources.

These modules are quite enough to calculate a person’s life, predict trends and results.
Calculations are made according to samples based on accounting for personal finances.

The behavior model is simplified.
The program lacks essential blocks that strongly affect behavior:
State training of people in a given country;
Socio-economic environment of existence in the region;
Life risk management.
