The second basic time sort is Thru-time (or through time). With this way of representing time, a person stores memories left to right or right to left, or some way where time is in front of them. An advantage is that past experiences can be used as references and learned from. As a disadvantage, some of these past experiences can be unresourceful.
When someone has this timeline type, they are aware of time passing. They will generally be on time or early for appointments. Being on time is a priority – sometimes more important than the appointment.
This filter is great when you want to plan, stay on track or meet deadlines. It is useful in structured environments and Western business culture. On holidays, when you want to be in the here and now, or where flexibility is required it can be painful.
