How it all works and what to expect...

The assessment is a 30-question diagnostic survey that indicates your personal thinking preferences. Your thinking preferences influence the way you communicate, make decisions, solve problems, and manage those around you. Understanding your thinking preferences can give you a new perspective on yourself and those you interact with every day. With the four quadrants as the basis, we are proud to introduce the 8 Dimensions Instrument which identifies two dimensions within each of the four quadrants. The 8 dimensions are a revolutionary aspect of the assessment as they provide greater insight into the elements within each of the four quadrants. This allows for a more thorough interpretation of an individual’s thinking preferences. Instruments which include the 8 dimensions are NBI General Adult, NBI Adult A, NBI Teacher/Trainer and the NBI Senior Student.

GENERAL

The assessment instruments we use was developed after almost 30 years of extensive international research on left and right-brain functions. The instruments were developed by Kobus Neethling, under the research guidance of Professor Paul Torrance of the University of Georgia.

Initially developed for adults, the instruments have been expanded to include several other whole brain instruments that are tailored to children, young adults, sportspeople, and businesspeople.

Ongoing research at several universities and institutes remains an integral part of the instruments and whole-brain science in general.


The assessment instruments we use will enable you to:

  • develop effective teams
  • resolve conflicts in your personal and professional life
  • receive the best guidance in choosing a new career
  • improve the level of creativity and leadership in your business
  • select the best-suited employees for new positions
  • retain valuable employees
  • choose the best course of study
  • develop the whole-brain mental edge in your sport

The assessment is a 30-question diagnostic survey that indicates your personal thinking preferences. Your thinking preferences influence the way you communicate, make decisions, solve problems, and manage those around you. Understanding your thinking preferences can give you a new perspective on yourself and those you interact with every day. Every response that participants choose is current, relevant, and topical. They are making a choice around their thinking preferences AS THEY ARE TODAY! For over a century, researchers have focused on gaining deeper insight into the functioning of the four-quadrant brain. Although the concept 'whole-brain thinking' is a major innovation with diverse applications, it is only the tip of the iceberg. With the four quadrants as the basis, we are proud to introduce the 8 Dimensions Instrument, which identifies two dimensions within each of the four quadrants. The 8 dimensions are a revolutionary aspect of the NBI® as they provide greater insight into elements within each of the four quadrants. This allows for a more thorough interpretation of an individual's thinking preferences.

By completing the 15 questions you clearly indicated the kind of JOB you would like to have one day. The total score of every participant is 300 which means that there is no profile which is superior or better than the other. The different Job profiles do however show which skills, insights, thinking, and attitudes are required to do well in particular jobs.
The NBI® Creativity Style instrument provides insight into the way in which you are creative. The instrument identifies the type of creativity you prefer and apply. Since the focus of this NBI® instrument is on thinking preferences, the result is not good or bad, right, or wrong. The NBI® Creativity Style instrument provides a profile report which is a descriptive, objective analysis of an individual’s thinking preferences – no profile is better or worse than another. Instead, the report gives you a description of your thought preferences and makes recommendations based on these preferences.
The premise of the NBI® Wealth Instrument is to determine the thinking profile of an individual when he or she must make investment decisions. The profile report focuses on the specific quadrant scores and makes recommendations based on these scores. It is also recommended that you compare your personal profile (four and eight dimensions) to your desired job profile - the higher the correlation between these two profiles the better the possibility that your desired job the is the correct choice.
