Vyasa discuss in detail about different type of Yogis according to their intensity of mind/consciousnesses
Quoting from Yoga Sutras of Patanjali with Vyasa Bhashya
There are nine descriptions of such Yogis. Their application to the means of achievement is mild, middling or intense. Thus some are of mild energy, others of medium energy, and others again of intense energy. Of these, the mildly energetic are three-fold, those having mild consciousness of supremacy, those having middling consciousness of supremacy, and those having keen consciousness of supremacy. Similarly, those of medium energy and those of intense energy. Of these, the attainment of trance and the fruit of trance are near to those who are intensely energetic in their application to the means of achievement and possess a keen consciousness of supremacy
Mild-intense, middling-intense and intense-intense. There is differentiation by that too. By that differentiation too the attainment of trance and its fruit becomes the speediest in the case of one whose application is intense and whose consciousness of supremacy is keenly intense
Though it looks that sutras are talking about the types of Sadhakas on the basis of their strength of mind/consciousnesses. It would be possible for a Sadhaka to accelerate the journey by developing more focused consciousness or by adopting the means which can help in doing so.
