Synthesizing would likely be the most preferred thinking style. Footer Contact Us Now. Get Tfst Touch Speak to Sales. The lack of preference for the more interpersonal aspects would reinforce the strength of the primary in Upper Left A.

Work that is considered most satisfying would include: Knowledge of your preferred thinking styles illuminates what degree of satisfaction or comfort you may have on the job when you encounter: The occupations typical of persons with this profile are technically, mathematically or financially based, with some working in the scientific, legal and middle management professions.

In both the model and the actual brain, all iteration between these two modes must go through another brain structure first. In case you do see the link: The Upper Right D quadrant is the least preferred of the four thinking styles. This is a singular dominant profile with the most preferred quadrant being the Lower Left B quadrant. The Lower Right C quadrant is characteristic of interpersonal, emotion, and intuitive thinking modes and would be functional yet secondary. Like other profile families that display multiple preferences, these individuals are faced with certain challenges associated with the multiplicity of their preferences.

This profile would be further characterized by the lack of preference for the holistic, conceptual, and synthesizing modes of processing found in the Upper Right D quadrant, which is expressed as a tertiary. Executives, nurses, some secretaries and homemakers may also show similar profiles.


The notion of hemisphere dominance attracted some criticism from the neuroscience community, notably by Terence Hines who called it “pop psychology” based on unpublished EEG data.

As with triple dominant hndi, establishing a lead quadrant helps provide direction. I have come to realise that my brain processes information a little different to the norm. The clear secondary and tertiary preferences of the cerebral modes, Upper Left A and Upper Right D, are also characteristic of hbbdi profile with logical and analytical processing in the Upper Left A quadrant representing a easily accessible style of thinking,but less preferred.

In other words, no evidence of validity [of hemisphere dominance] is presented.

This assessment will help students better understand their thinking preferences. The person with this profile would be characterized by strong preferences in the controlled, planning, tedt, and structured modes of processing. Two facts are clear from the studies of over one million profiles studied across the world in the Herrmann International database.

A dissertation by C. They did however find correlation between hhdi in design students based on how flexible they were using all four thinking styles equally as measured by the HBDI.

How this relates to life isn’t very profound though and the value of these tests are questionable.

The solid line is my result and the the dotted line is where you think when under stress. This profile could also support entrepreneurial behavior, since it features the imaginative, innovating and ‘risk’ oriented behavior of the right mode quadrants C and D without the control or preference of the structured, logical and conservative modes of the left quadrants A and B. These quadrants can play the role of relay station to facilitate thinking processes.

This profile occurs frequently in the population at large, with only a relatively slight difference in the male and female population. Characteristics associated with this quadrant include tezt, imaginative, holistic and integrative processing.


Give two people the practical tools and insights to interact effectively, work together more productively, and resolve issues that could be interfering with their results. This profile would be characterized by processing modes of Upper Left A-the analytical, logical, and rational processing; and the interpersonal, emotional, and intuitive thinking modes of the Lower Right C.

His theory was based on theories of the modularity of cognitive functions, including well-documented specializations in the brain’s cerebral cortex and limbic systems, and the research into left-right brain laterilization by Roger Wolcott SperryRobert OrnsteinHenry Mintzbergand Michael Gazzaniga.

Also artistic professions ubdi planning, organizing and administrative functions. This special webkey allows you to begin again where you left off. This profile is a double dominant profile, with the two most preferred modes of processing occurring in the Lower Right C and Upper Right D quadrants.

The profile is characterized by a logical, analytical, technical orientation and is effective in rational problem solving from the Upper Left A quadrant.

Ultimately, it can lead to a very well integrated person. This person would be seen as logical, rational, and analytical with some capabilities for imaginative, experimental modes of processing. The person with this profile would be characterized by strong preferences in the controlled, planning, organizational and structured modes of processing.

Nurses, some educators, personal assistants may also show similar profiles. A blue explains the Herrmann Whole Brain model and quadrants as well as the application to problem solving, teams and communication.
