Pioneer biorhythm researchers found that people tended to have
more accidents on days in which either they physical or emotional
cycles were passing through the zero point -- in short, on critical
days in either of these cycles.
Even today, the primary reason that many industries have displayed
a great interest in biorhythms is that they have been able to
relate the critical days to employee accidents. Avoiding
accidents is simply good business.
The great attraction of biorhythms is that they are simple and
practical. You can look at a chart and say, "This is where
my energy levels stand today."
Practicality is what has attracted so many industries to biorhythms.
If on-the-job accidents can be reduced, even by a few percentage
points, that more than justifies whatever modest expense is
involved in calculating the biorhythm of employees. It
is from industries that some of the more interesting recent
statistics on biorhythms come.

If you can pick up a copy, please do because it is very informative
and even gives a breakdown on how to plot your own chart with
pencil and paper.
For the last 7 years of my teaching career, I used my BioRhythm
program to plot the compatibility between my students and me.
The results were surprisingly accurate and allowed me, as an
adult teacher, to re-assess my teaching methods for those students
who tended to rub me the wrong way. It enabled me to back
up and go that extra mile for those students.
I also ran a compatibility analysis for one of my friends and
his son. Unfortunately it was too late for the dad to
make an extra effort to understand his son to make a difference.
The son was in his 20's and had sold his dad's car and used
the money to leave home. He and his dad did not get along
at all throughout their relationship. I was not surprised
when the compatibility average was "zero" percent.
For a long time, my wife would place individual printouts side
by side on our bedroom closet door. This was a great help
whenever we would start to have a difference of agreement in
our marriage. By looking at the chart, we could back up
and look a little more closely at the issues on which we were
headed toward conflict or disagreement. I kind of miss
those charts, but they became unnecessary as we grew to understand
each other more and more.
