What is Your Thinking Style?
What might be your...
creative thinking style?
Perhaps your style is like one of these people....
Which are You?
...of these 16 Primary M.I.N.D. Designs?
For more information contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Take the M.I.N.D. Design questionnaire
in either of two ways electronically.
Is your leadership style like one of these leaders in business?
Since I did my doctoral research (1979 to 1983) into the impact of teaching style on learning style and learning results I have based all of my speaking and consulting work on the following premises.
If I can grasp or access your basic THINKING STYLE
I can then project your basic
PROBLEM SOLVING STYLES.
From these I can then determine which
TEACHING, LEADING, CONFLICT RESOLUTION, TEAM.... STYLES.
I ought to use when working with you
for us to be more successful together.
My ongoing research and experiences
with over 3100 audiences/clients have shown me that
How we THINK impacts How we LEARN
How we THINK and LEARN impact how we COMMUNICATE
How we THINK, LEARN, and COMMUNICATE impact how we
ALL four of these impact all our human activities
LEADING, CONFLICT RESOLUTION, SELLING/BUYING, COACHING/COUNSELING.....
NOW EXPLORE WHAT ARE YOUR
GENERALLY PREFERRED "STYLES"
by completing a M.I.N.D. Design questionnaire.
First Option....by clicking here Take this survey-1
Immediately after completing the questionnaire you can receive a basic report based on your scores.
survey instant report
Second Option...by clicking here Take this survey-2
Once your scores show, discover more detailed information about the four primary M.I.N.D. Design Styles (leading, communicating, teaming, creative thinking) by clicking on the individual style names
for the 4 primary cognitive styles
by clicking on the highlighted primary style name (blue)
you will receive the following 4 general style reports
These four reports combined will be more accurate when you look at your
individual specific point scores, for example . . .
0 - 2 = a low score or tendency to avoid
3 - 4 = a moderate score and ability to work in that style
5 - 7 = a preference
8 - 12 = a very strong preference
MEDITATIVE * INTUITIVE * NEGOTIATIVE * DIRECTIVE
your apparent MIND Design (combined scores) can greatly impact how you...
think, learn, communicate, solve problems, lead, train and deal with conflict.

We can all improve many of our daily tasks by first...
Understanding our individual styles of
Leading, Communicating, Teaming, Cre8ng, or Working.
M.I.N.D. Design has been developed to aid people in understanding how their individual style can be best matched or teamed up with the styles of all the people they work with/for to produce the best results for all from the single individual to the entire corporation.
The M.I.N.D. Design Package includes:

M.I.N.D. Design An Introduction
The general use of the M.I.N.D. Design questionnaire is to introduce the importance of understanding the differences among people, whether in a working, volunteer, recreational, personal, or a family relationship.
The questionnaire is based on the idea that there are at least four separate ways that we can approach anything we do. The questions predominantly are descriptive of personal thinking styles.
My major premise is that if I can acquire a basic understanding how someone thinks, I then can understand how they might learn best, solve problems and communicate. Understanding these four individually or combined can help us determine how best to work with another person, one-on-one or in teams.
A person's M.I.N.D. Design (or Human Style) affects how they approach most things:
Here are some questions that can be helped through understanding the principles of our M.I.N.D. Design scores.
Generally 67% (2/3's) of most groups have two categories combined that fit them best. Only 20 to 25% have a single category (scores of 7 or higher). The combinations usually occur in the following manner:
Here are some sample differences between the 4 primary styles.
Here are some probable strengths and possible weaknesses
How to use the scores to give clues to the dynamics
within your workplace.
My recommendations to all audiences are the following:
Conventional thinking in a culture, country or company or even a family says that there is a specific "correct" way of doing everything, either ours or someone else's. It is because of this CT that we create most of our problems.
Acceptance, understanding and teaming the best of each will always bring the greatest success. Tolerating only implies that the one who is tolerating is superior.
A Presbyterian minister shared the following insights with me years ago:
Overall General NotesWhat causes us to develop or choose a Mind Design or "Human Style?"
Can we change?
Yes, but it is better to learn to appreciate the one we have, develop our strengths and add some of the strengths of the others.
Generally maximizing one or two approaches or Mind Design categories produces success.
As a leader, teacher, parent, coach, friend it is better for us to become comfortable with our M.I.N.D. Design ("Human Style") and to learn how to modify ours slightly enough to develop understanding and rapport with people who have different ones than it is to expect all other people to change to match us.
