Crucial Element

I'd appreciate if someone (Chris) could confirm my thoughts on this.
Story is Steadfast, Start, Outcome is success, Judgement is bad.
MC crucial element = Chaos
IC crucial element = Order

My thoughts are that the MC succeeds in solving the overall story through Chaos, but by sticking to Chaos (steadfast) fails to solve his own personal problem.
Am I right?

That's the way it will feel because that's how everything ends up. However, it is not truly a causal relationship in a linear sense.

The difference isn't something worth worrying about.
