    The Visionary
    "You're the ultimate universal, holistic thinker!"

    The Visionary

    You're the ultimate universal, holistic thinker! Yes, you're a visionary. Everything, including the smallest detail, needs to be synthesized into a framework that answers the question, "How?" Before you begin any project or task, you need to see the big picture. Not one step can be taken until you know how that one step fits into the whole.

    Options and More Options!

    Ideas and options are what you're always creating. "Process" is your middle name. Once something seems concrete, structured and complete, you have a way of coming up with a creative option that changes the whole thing and leads to a better building process.

    Change, particularly in ideas, is never-ending for you. What you're enthusiastic about today may not be the focus of your energy in a week, a month or year. People that know you see a dynamic stream of consciousness which, given the right amount of time and people support, allows you to develop idealistic and artistic themes into living and creative realities. It makes no difference whether they are software programs, pieces of art, strategies for corporations or new, holistic developments for organic gardening.
    Cool! Pretty accurate.

    Thinking Before Acting

    Entrepreneur! That's the word that best represents your style. You are an equal combination of aware thought and realistic action. In other words, you'll see something unusual, think about it, organize your thoughts around it into a realistic goal and then, immediately act on it. Sometimes you're successful and sometimes you're not. That's what makes your life exciting.

    Here's what's different about what you do compared to other people. You're an applied risk taker! You are not afraid to take action on your awareness.

    Another process of yours that is different from others is that you'll incubate your thoughts for a long time and then, out of nowhere, want to apply them directly. The benefit is that your thoughts are original and when applied correctly, they can be very successful. The problem is that others around you have not been clued into your thoughts until you're ready to run with them. They have not been prepared to assist you. This dichotomy between thought and action can sometimes create confusion among those around you.

    Combining Intuition and Logic


    Your thinking process is a combination of intuition and concrete, applied logic. Yes, you can think and even express yourself theoretically and strategically. But when push comes to shove, you'll want to take these ideas and develop them into active, participatory thoughts that can lead to specific actions.

    Two questions are very important to you: "What's the goal or objective?" and "How does it work?" One is the end point and the other is the process in successfully reaching the end point. When you're getting ready to apply your thoughts, you're simultaneously asking and answering these two questions.

    Shifting Priorities

    When it comes to time, there is a constant shift within you from future thoughts to present actions. You're always thinking about changing possibilities and probabilities, yet wanting to stay on your path toward present day goals and objectives. This dichotomy within you creates a charged energy that, if channeled correctly, will give you and others around you positive results. However, successfully handling this dichotomy depends upon your learning from previous life experiences.

    You vacillate from procrastinating to finishing something to wanting to get it done ahead of time. The compromise is that you usually finish what you start out to accomplish on time. That's why it's important for you to set deadlines for yourself and your projects.

    Idealism vs. Realism


    Another contrast that you live with is that you're predominantly a thinking idealist and an action-oriented realist. Thus, when you have to apply some of your ideas, they create an internal and external frustration with reality. However, with enough experiences, you've learned how to pragmatically weave your way through this. And, in the end, you achieve at a high-level.

    Sometimes, in your action mode, your communications can be perceived as very immediate, blunt, and even threatening. Other times, when you're relaxed and just sharing some thoughts about things, your communications are perceived as interesting, casual and extremely enjoyable. That's why it's important for you to be aware of your internal motivational shifts and how they affect your communications.

    The Bottom Line

    Just remember, that even with all of the above dichotomies and contrasts, your life has been exciting and successful overall. Tomorrow will bring new awareness, different ideas and some more applied adventures. That's the way you like it.

    Creative Thinker
    You love to think, logically and creatively. You are most productive at work when you are solving problems by analyzing specific situations or by creating multiple options. You're adept at strategic planning at the highest levels.

    Sixth-Sense Awareness
    You are very aware of what's happening around you and/or what's going to happen in the future. It's almost like you have a sixth sense. You see the forest where most people are looking at trees or clumps of trees. This gives you a vision toward which to direct people's energies and thought processes. When you do this, people are amazed and excited about following your vision and strategies.

    You're also able to break the vision and strategies into workable components that are easy to understand because they are linear, logical and uncomplicated. You also always ask a very important question when you're thinking through the solutions: "What is missing or doesn't fit?" Others on the project are surprised when you question your own assumptions, facts and logic.

    Leading Others
    You have an unassuming manner in getting people to follow what you want them to do. Some of the reasons you're so successful at getting people to follow your vision and strategies are as follows:

    1. Before you speak and ask others to do something, you have the whole project meticulously laid out so it makes sense and it's easy to follow;
    2. You ask for input and genuinely try to accommodate the plan to what people suggest;
    3. When problems arise, you can be very creative in finding, or assisting others in finding, optional ways to handle the situations
    4. And, as a whole, your mannerisms and your ways of communicating are clear and personable.

    Your Communication Skills
    Your communication skills are exceptional. You have a way of making people very relaxed and open during a dialogue with you. You pick up the most salient points and nonverbal gestures during a conversation. Then, you imaginatively redirect them in along your own lines of thought so that people feel they have fully participated in the process.

    Respecting OthersÂ’ Needs
    The one thing you don't like to do is to push or cajole others into doing something they are resisting. Yes, the project must be finished, but not at the expense of other people's individual feelings or integrity. Your respect for the rights of others supersedes the immediate need to accomplish the goal as planned. You'll find a creative way to meet the challenge while including the personal preference of the individual. That's why people enjoy being on a team or project with you. It's also why many people follow you even though you don't like to think of yourself as a great leader.

    Stresses

    Using the Interactor style can create stress for you. Yes, you can use it for short periods of time as a learning or production tool. But, the longer you use it, the more stressed you become. Your energy-focus, which accesses this particular process, may be blocked sometimes. It's as if you have a blind spot in this part of your repertoire. You just don't like to have to use it as a primary tool. The following is what may create stress for you if used for more than short time periods:


    Using personal, interactive dialogue as a primary tool
    Wanting people to always be expressive, personal and humorous
    Enjoying being charismatic and craving the center of attention
    Needing to always be creative, innovative and humorous with others
    Using dynamic and multi-sensory methods (touch, etc.) when relating to others

    Communication Style


    A Rare and Fine Balance

    Your style score is rare (just over one in one thousand). Few people have such a balanced, overall profile. You are able to select from any of the primary styles the ones that best suit you in preparing for a task or a project. If you want to achieve on a high level, which you do most of the time, you can consistently be in the top 10% by selecting the styles that match the thoughts or actions to be taken.

    Yes, you're capable of succeeding on a high level. Sometimes, you have to persevere until you finish the task or complete the assignments. However, because you're not afraid of hard work, you'll accomplish it successfully and not complain unless it's been an unfair task.
    Organized Efficiency

    You are well organized and rarely late for an appointment or a deadline. In fact, you are prepared to complete each task on schedule or ahead of time. You do what has to be done in efficient ways. You take pride in your work and accomplish it successfully unless you're placed in a extremely chaotic situation that is out of your control. Even then, you seem to remain calm and consistently successful.

    You're not a risk taker who presents far-out thoughts and defends them. You're creative enough to solve problems with some ingenuity, but not overly creative so that your foundations of thought aren't grounded in facts and acceptable assumptions. You're well prepared and have a plan with strategies and tactics to follow. Then, you do what it takes to successfully accomplish well-balanced work that always meets or exceeds the goals of the assignment or task.
    How You Learn

    Traditional learning methods (lectures, reading, videos and study groups) come easily for you, particularly if an instructor is logical and clear in his presentations and assignments. If instructors give a lecture or an assignment that is fuzzy, you can become anxious and will need to ask for clarity in a non-threatening way. Another reason that traditional learning is easy for you is that your balanced styles allow you to approach any learning situation in many different ways: analytic or synthetic, idealistic or pragmatic, auditory, visual or kinesthetic, using categorical or associative memory techniques, and approaching the learning in a detailed and/or holistic manner.

    You are an excellent listener and reader who logically categorizes everything, easily memorizes things, zeroes in on the details and builds both creative and rational conclusions. Then, you're thorough enough to check everything over in many different ways so that you can present your best work. After a while, your instructors and fellow participants realize that you're dependable and capable. That's why other participants ask you for help on an assignment or want you in their study group.

    wonder if this has anything to do with a tertiary intuitive function?

    Communication Style

    The Logical Thinker

    If there is such a thing as a purely rational person, you’re it. Everything you think about and do needs to be analyzed and systematized logically. You live by deduction. First A, then B, next C…

    Everything is categorized into its place and function. Next, it’s checked to see if it’s factual and can be proven scientifically. Then, and only then, will you deliberately proceed any further.

    Checks and Balances
    Yes, yours is a life of checks and balances to the smallest decimal place. No detail is overlooked. You only take precise steps that are planned out well in advance. Thinking and logic are supreme. Knowledge is the foundation. Everything is a chess match at the Masters level!

    You’re not a risk taker. It doesn’t mean that you’re not adventurous. It means that before you take the first step every possible move and option that can be controlled has been thought through thoroughly. You only like to deal with probabilities in your favor at 99.44 percent. Joy for you is minimizing luck.

    The Ultimate Planner
    You are admired by many because of your thinking skills and the way you skillfully design your life and the steps in the lives of others. YouÂ’re the ultimate planner. Your opinions are treasured and trusted. Most people know that before you do anything or advise others about anything, you have reached broadly and delved deeply into the history and facts. Everyone realizes that you are conscientious and respectful of doing the right thing in the right way.
    How You Learn

    You are a lifelong learner. Everything is absorbed like a blotter by your lock-step memory. Then it is carefully processed and contextually stored with other pertinent information. When the need arises, you retrieve and reprocess the information for appropriate applications. Rarely does your memory or logical use of stored information fail.

    How You Interact with Others
    You’re basically an introverted and low-key person who likes everything to be orderly and impersonal. Reserved, proper and calm are words that are often used to describe you. You usually don’t like to interact verbally or personally with other people. You are independent and can be a loner very easily. Sometimes, your best friend is your computer and its Internet access.

    However, if you don't invest some energy and emotions into communication and relationships, you’ll be seen as boring, stiff and “nerdy.” Relating to others is almost always done in an intellectual manner. However, this raises a paradoxical dilemma for you because youÂ’re human and innately should be relating to others emotionally and socially, as well as intellectually.

    In a group setting you’re usually very quiet and rarely volunteer to speak unless you have something very pertinent to say. Even then, you are reticent at best. However, if someone you respect directly asks you for your opinion, you’ll answer if you deem the subject in question worthy of your attention. Then, and only then, will you respond in a thorough manner. If you are pushed to explain even more, you’ll use historical and logical explanations, including answering all of the possible questions as to why your responses are correct. Thus, you’ll not leave any rational leaf unturned and immediately you’ll halt the possibility that someone else may question you again about this subject area.

    Given the right opportunity to debate someone of equal or greater intellectual stature, you’ll jump at this fortuitous occasion. You’ll enter this competition because you know that, win, lose or draw, you’ll learn more than if you abstain. You’re not afraid of losing face; after all, it’s an opportunity to learn and achieve at a higher level. You’re not worried about the cost of learning.

    How You Judge Others
    Sometimes, particularly when you’re younger, you can be quite critical of others and haughty in your responses. In fact, as people speak, you are editing what they’re saying and judging their intellectual capacity. At some point in your life, you’ll recognize that you are much brighter and more knowledgeably prepared than most people. Thus, you have two choices as to how you are to respond: arrogantly critical or respectfully positive. Hopefully, you’ve had enough experiences in life to respond in the latter manner so that people will not be intimidated and discontinue relating to you.

    The Final Analysis
    Overall, your intellectual insights, planning and meticulous behavior are seen by others as a great asset to the team and the organization. People depend on your articulate advice and logical thinking. Just be patient with them in the beginning and let them know what you think in a positive manner.

    Another Analytical Visionary in da house.


    Strong on Left-Brain Abstract and Right-Brain Abstract.
    Moderate on Right-Brain Concrete
    Weak on Left-Brain Concrete


    Your 4 Quadrant Style Guide


    Left-Brain Abstract (Analytic):
    Think in terms of facts, details and ordered information.
    Left-Brain Concrete (Conclusive):
    Think in terms of problems and quick solutions.
    Right-Brain Abstract (Synthetic):
    Think in terms of large, global concepts and ideas.
    Right-Brain Concrete (Interactive): Think in terms of conversation.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------







    Communication Style



    Understanding the Big Picture


    Thinking and processing! That's what you love to do the most. Ideas and options are what you're always creating. Once something seems concrete, structured and complete, you have a way of coming up with a creative option that changes the whole and leads to a better building process.


    Most of the time you are very uncanny about seeing and understanding the big picture. Yes, you're a holistic thinker that is always asking the question "How?" Everything, including the smallest detail, needs to be woven into a framework to answer your question of "How?" Not one step can be taken until you know how that step fits into the whole. These are some of many reasons why people refer to you as a visionary.

    How You Think


    Your thinking process is mostly intuitive and analogic. However, you do use facts and logic to back up your intuitive thought processing. When you weave these processes together, you're constantly challenging logical and scientific thought. You seem to stretch the facts to create a new theory or develop a synthetic way of tying different theories together. This optional way of thinking energizes your thought processes while at the same time focuses your energy on the facts in specific, yet different, ways.

    Dynamic Creativity


    Change, particularly in ideas, is never-ending for you. What you're enthusiastic about today may not be the focus of your energy in a week, a month or year. People that know you see a dynamic stream of consciousness which, given the right amount of time and people support, develops idealistic and artistic themes into living and creative realities. It makes no difference whether they are software programs, pieces of art, strategies for corporations or new, holistic developments for organic gardening.


    There is no timeline or deadline for your accomplishments. They are never-ending because you will go back and transform them if they evolve into a different whole within you. That is why in school or at work you procrastinate until the last moment to finish a paper, an assignment or a project. If you do the work early, you'll have to go back and change it completely because you'll see it in a different contextual whole at the time when it is due. So, why redo it?

    Shifting to Logical Thinking


    Sometimes, you'll leave these creative and optional way of thinking to become extremely logical, rational and serial in your thought patterns and work. During this time, you'll be very analytical, and you will develop critical thoughts and strategies. You'll insist that ideas have factual, underlying assumptions before they can be made into strategies.


    You'll be capable of critiquing and changing your own creative theories and plans. Persons that are participating in this change with you will be taken aback by your honest and thorough examinations, your attention to analytic detail and your sudden need to meet timelines punctually.


    Every so often, paradoxical thoughts attract you. Most people avoid them. You seem curious and comfortable with them. That's because, once again, your need for creative and optional thinking doesn't have to be tied consistently together with logic and factual data.

    Exploring Options


    You're attracted to the unknown more than the known. You're drawn to what's unusual about something rather than what is typical about it. If it's strange or way out there, you'll want to know and read about it. You may take an idea from this and apply it in some practical way.


    As a scientist or scholar, you have a bent towards the artistic side. What other people see as facts, you may see as shades of facts or possibilities of different facts. It's the development and the creation of new ideas and new ways of looking at something that excites you. That's because your world is the world of possibilities and visions.

    Thinking of the Future


    You're always thinking about the future and you have an unusual awareness as to what may happen. What you forecast is not always logical and sometimes makes many people uncomfortable. But, if they've known you long enough, they use the awareness to be better prepared for upcoming situations or events.


    People want you to share your thoughts with them. That's because your ideas and expressions usually give a different slant to a topic. Many times others look to you for your awareness or guidance about something.

    How You Communicate with Others


    You're an excellent communicator with individuals and small groups of three, no more than four people. You listen attentively to what people say, how they say it and what feelings are generated. When you give feedback, it is usually very sensitive and leads to further communication. You have an unusual awareness for what is happening to the person and others that are participating. It's almost like a sixth sense. Sometimes, people distance themselves from you because of this sensitivity and your feedback.


    Almost the same thing happens when you enter a room with people conversing. Without trying, you can sense the themes of the discussions and the feelings being expressed. As you join a group, people are drawn to you and have a need to express their thoughts and feelings in your presence. You seem to be a natural facilitator for communication on all levels.


    Communication Tips


    People who have a predominantly Left-brain Abstractthinking style thrive on careful analysis of all pertinent factors before making any decisions. Their style is naturally systematic and detail-oriented, characterized by the pursuit of logic, predictability and discipline. They may appear distant and aloof at times, as they prefer to listen rather than talk. They tend to stick to the rules and stay within the confines of their orderly world.

    When communicating with a Left-brain Abstract person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:
    •You might find their passion for logical analysis to be ponderous or overly pedantic at times, but if you keep an open mind, their conclusions could be beneficial to you.
    •In situations where you must collaborate on a project or a plan, their tendency to stick to the rules can be limiting to your own creative visions. Present your optional ideas as logical alternatives worthy of consideration.
    •They may appear distant and aloof at times, as they prefer to listen rather than talk. Don't take this personally or assume they're arrogant. Remember that they're absorbing and processing information before they render an opinion.
    •They can be a valuable source of background or historical information, which you sometimes tend to overlook while you aim for the "big picture." Nevertheless, expect them to provide more details than you might care for.

    People who have a predominantly Right-brain Concrete thinking style thrive on interacting with people and being the center of attention. They inspire others with their charm and warm personality. They can read other people very easily and use their intuitive skills to adapt effortlessly to changing situations. They are excellent at exciting and persuading others to follow their suggestions. They often speak without spending too much time thinking about what to say.

    When communicating with a Right-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:
    •At times, you might find their ebullient need to be the center of attention to be overpowering or annoying.
    •Like therapists, they can sometimes encourage you to open up and confide with them about personal problems or concerns you have. You're usually okay with this, as long as they don't pry too deeply or push their solutions too strongly.
    •As much as you think before you speak, they think by speaking. They are excellent at exciting and persuading others to follow their suggestions.
    •Even if they don't take logic or factual data into account, they may come up with innovative or imaginative ideas that are worthy of your consideration.
    •Since you both like to come up with ideas, the verbal interaction can be both personally rewarding and productive. They may not share your visionary creativity, but they often have an intuitive sense of what is most suited for you.
    •They can sometimes seem manipulative in getting their way. While you might find their personal charm and charisma irresistible, don't allow yourself to be swayed in a direction that you know is not right for you.

    People who have a predominantly Left-brain Concrete thinking style are action-oriented and thrive on challenge. As movers of people and organizations, they enforce rules, focus on goals, meet deadlines, and demand immediate action. They typically avoid getting bogged down in details and want to go directly to the bottom line. They prefer short and easy action-items or conclusions. They are decisive people who want to get things done quickly and efficiently.

    When communicating with a Left-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:
    •You might find their style at times overbearing or in some cases, even intimidating. As a result, you're likely to interact with them only as much as absolutely necessary.
    •When it comes to solving problems, they view feelings or abstract concepts as intrusions that prevent them from reaching a firm conclusion. You'd be better off not allowing your feelings to become too much of an issue.
    •On the other hand, your feelings about certain situations are paramount to your comfort level, so don't be afraid to let them know how important that is to you.
    •There might be times that you will feel they are pushing too hard to get you to make a final decision. On the other hand, you might be struggling with all the options you're considering and could benefit from their decisive nature.
    •Don't be offended by their direct talk if it seems abrupt Ð they are goal-oriented people who know how to get things done.

    When communicating with another Left-brain Concrete, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:
    •Like you, they tend to be visionary thinkers who look at the big picture and try to understand how things relate to each other.
    •They value creative, inspirational options as much as you do. They can usually provide interesting alternatives that would be worth your while to consider. At times, however, you might become a bit irritated with their tendency to go off on tangents when you're trying to focus on a particular issue of concern.
    •With the tendency you both have to procrastinate while exploring your options, one of you will need to refocus your energies on making a decision when the need to accomplish something arises.
    •You are both open-minded and feelings-oriented. Together, you are likely to create a relaxed, low-key atmosphere based on trust and good rapport.
    •Remember to be patient with their quiet, reflective nature; just like you, they may be thinking of other options that are more suitable for you or for themselves.
    •Ultimately, you both need to feel comfortable with how your decisions fit into your world.



    Stresses




    Using the Concluder style of learning can create stress for you. Yes, you can use it for short periods of time as a learning or production tool. But, the longer you use it, the more stressed you become. Your energy-focus, which accesses this particular process, may be blocked sometimes. It's as if you have a blind spot in this part of your repertoire. You just don't like to have to use it as a primary tool. The following is what may create stress for you if used for more than short time periods:


    •Always trying to be in control of or in charge of everything and everyone
    •Insisting on asking the question, "What is the objective of doing this?" and immediately taking action to accomplish it
    •Making sure everything you attempt is based on concrete, realistic and linear steps
    •Being concise about everything you think, learn or do ("less is more")
    •Demanding that efficiency be a constant motivator and goal
    •Being the highest achiever and one of the most successful people at all costs

    Communication Style

    The Ultimate People Person
    It is most essential that you recognize that you are a charismatic leader who loves to achieve at the highest level. People just love to be in your presence. Your creativity is getting other people to do what you want or envision.

    You are almost always the center of attention. As you walk down a corridor at work, you are constantly bantering and chatting with others that you meet. If you are on a team or doing a project, you are the spontaneous motivator and communications leader. Everyone knows and recognizes your energetic and enthusiastic direction. Your networking with others reaches far and wide. You are the ultimate politician.

    Your manner is always extremely positive and confident.
    When everyone else is feeling discouraged, you provide an individual and group spark that rekindles inspiration and rejuvenates excitement to continue forward.
    Your threshold for positive leadership is extremely high.

    In fact, the worse the situation, the more you thrive on it. You're like a cat with nine lives. <---True Story

    Dynamic Activity
    Along with that, you are an extremely active person, moving quickly from one person to another, one group of people to another or from one task to another.
    You must always be doing, moving, motivating and/or talking.
    That is why your favorite ways of achieving are through focused doing and direct dialogue.
    You innately organize others, and when push comes to shove, you can keep them focused and working.

    You rarely do the details or grunt work.

    However, when you have to do them to meet a deadline or drive others to follow, you don't let anyone try to stop you.

    If they continue to attempt to stop you, you force them to stay out of your way.

    You shut everything and everyone else out and finish what needs to be done, no matter what the cost to you or to others.

    When the tasks or project are completed, then it's time to really celebrate with others!

    How You Learn
    You are a dynamic, multi-sensory learner. You learn best when you're participating in an experience and are having an ongoing discussion about what is happening and how you're feeling. "Doing with dialogue" cements learning for you. You learn very easily if you're in a small group setting that allows constant interaction. However, as the deadline for learning results approaches, you have an uncanny ability to organize yourself, concentrate and rise to the occasion.

    You don't like to focus on details or facts without being shown the complete understanding of the whole or at least an affinity as to how this detail enlivens subject or tasks at hand. A boring and stiff supervisor or teacher creates motivational problems for you. However, if straight facts and dry details are embellished by a boss's or teacher's personal anecdotes or jokes, then these associations trigger your memory and motivation to work. Just memorizing or doing something, particularly if it doesn't have any meaning or pragmatic application for you, means you have to concentrate and focus over a longer period of time than you usually like to do. But, at the last minute, you can do it.

    The Bottom Line
    Remember, when the opportunity presents itself, and it usually does, you are number one, not just in your eyes, but in the eyes of others. Also, remember what gets you there: your positive, open and creative communicative style that makes everyone an important person in your presence.

    Communication Tips

    People who have a predominantly Left-brain Abstract thinking style thrive on careful analysis of all pertinent factors before making any decisions. Their style is naturally systematic and detail-oriented, characterized by the pursuit of logic, predictability and discipline. They may appear distant and aloof at times, as they prefer to listen rather than talk. They tend to stick to the rules and stay within the confines of their orderly world. <---Not Always!

    When communicating with a Left-brain Abstract person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:
    • If you are able to engage them in conversation, don't be surprised when they provide more details than you might care for.
    • Because of their introverted nature, they usually don't like to interact verbally or personally with other people. When they do, you might find their passion for logical and systematic analysis to be ponderous or overly pedantic, but try to keep an open mind, as their conclusions could be beneficial to you.
    • In situations where you must collaborate on a project, their tendency to stick to the rules and take things seriously will help keep you focused on the task, even though you may feel constrained from your natural tendency to socialize.
    • They may appear distant and aloof at times, as they prefer to listen than talk. Don't take this personally or assume they're arrogant. Remember that they're absorbing and processing information that they may use to render an opinion.
    • They can be a valuable source of background or historical information, which you usually overlook. Allow them to take center stage for a change while you benefit from their knowledge and experience.
    People who have a predominantly Left-brain Concrete thinking style are action-oriented and thrive on challenge. As movers of people and organizations, they enforce rules, focus on goals, meet deadlines, and demand immediate action. They typically avoid getting bogged down in details and want to go directly to the bottom line. They prefer short and easy action-items or conclusions. They are decisive people who want to get things done quickly and efficiently.

    When communicating with a Left-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:
    • You both tend to deal in the concrete here and now, but their emphasis is on actions and results, while yours is on people and interpersonal communication. This difference can lead to a clash in how you accomplish your goals.
    • You might find their communication style overbearing or even intimidating at times. Nevertheless, you can sometimes get them to shift gears to a more amiable, relaxed style that suits you both well.
    • When it comes to solving problems, they view feelings or abstract concepts as intrusions that prevent them from reaching a firm conclusion. Maintain your upbeat attitude, and your feelings won't distract them or become an issue.
    • They don't usually like to engage in small talk or use metaphors. They prefer to get right to the point. Watch for clues that they want to keep things brief.
    • At times you may feel they are pushing too hard to get you to make a decision. Despite your preference for spontaneity, you might benefit from their decisive nature. Listen to their suggestions with an open mind.

    People who have a predominantly Right-brain Abstract thinking style tend to be visionary thinkers who look at the big picture and try to understand how things relate to each other. They are creative people who consider many options and abstract concepts when absorbing or presenting information and when making decisions. They tend to think before they speak.

    When communicating with a Left-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:
    • Typically, you can relate comfortably with their communication style, even though they may not be as naturally sociable as you are.
    • They value creative, inspirational options and can usually provide interesting alternatives that would be worth your while to consider. At times, however, you might find their tendency to go off on tangents somewhat disorienting.
    • With the tendency they have to procrastinate while they explore their options, you will need to focus your energies on taking action when you must collaborate on a project or make a decision.
    • You are both open-minded and feelings-oriented. If you give them a chance to open up and share their ideas, you are likely to create an atmosphere based on trust and good rapport.
    • Remember to be patient with their quiet, reflective nature; they may be thinking of other options that are more suitable for you or for themselves. Ultimately, they need to feel comfortable with how their decisions fit into their world.

    When communicating with another Right-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:
    • You both thrive on interacting with people and being the center of attention. This may sometimes result in a bit of competition to be on center stage.
    • They can read other people very easily and use their intuitive skills to adapt effortlessly to changing situations. Like you, they are excellent at exciting and persuading others to follow their suggestions.
    • They can often encourage you to confide with them about personal problems or concerns you have. You're usually okay with this, as long as they aren't overly judgmental or critical.
    • They may come up with innovative or imaginative ideas that are worthy of your consideration. Their goal is to continually gain recognition and enhance their own image. Along the way, they can help you achieve the same results.
    • Since you both like to exchange ideas, the interaction can be both personally rewarding and productive.
    • They can sometimes seem manipulative in getting their way. While you might find their personal charm and charisma irresistible, don't allow yourself to be swayed in a direction that you know is not right for you.

    Stresses

    Using the Analyzer style can create stress for you. Yes, you can use it for short periods of time as a learning or production tool. But, the longer you use it, the more stressed you become. Your energy-focus, which accesses this particular process, may be blocked sometimes. It's as if you have a blind spot in this part of your repertoire. You just don't like to have to use it as a primary tool. The following is what may create stress for you if used for more than short time periods:

    • Constantly asking the question, "Why?" and thoroughly examining the answers
    • Always being skeptical about your facts, thinking or learning processes before undertaking or doing something
    • Reaching a conclusion only based on thinking logically
    • Using only factual assumptions to reach detailed, action-oriented steps
    • Not expressing your opinions until they demonstrate an impeccable rationale

    Quadrants Detailed Descriptions:

    The Four Quadrants

    Most people have some combination of all four styles, but with varying degrees of preference. One style will have a higher numerical score than the others, though two or more styles can have closely matching scores. The following paragraphs give a brief summary of each primary communication style:

    Left-brain Abstract (Analytic) thrive on careful analysis of all pertinent factors before making any decisions. Their thinking style is naturally systematic and detail-oriented, characterized by the pursuit of logic, predictability and discipline. They tend to stick to the rules and stay within the confines of their orderly world. When presenting information to this style, one should present a logically sequenced, rational explanation of the information and provide enough details and facts (historical or technical) to support one's argument.

    Right-brain Abstract (Synthetic) are visionary thinkers who look at the big picture and try to understand how things relate to each other. They are creative people who consider many options and abstract concepts when absorbing or presenting information and when making decisions. When presenting information to this style, one should provide the big picture first before getting to more specific points, include optional choices, and limit the amount of details.

    Left-brain Concrete (Conclusive) are action-oriented people who thrive on challenge. They focus on goals, meet deadlines, and demand immediate action. They typically avoid getting bogged down in details and want to go directly to the bottom line. They prefer short and easy action-items or conclusions. They are decisive people who want to get things done quickly and efficiently. When presenting information to this style, one should be concise, concrete, and sequential, sticking to the point and avoiding abstract ideas.

    Right-brain Concrete (Interactive) thrive on interacting with people and being the center of attention. They inspire others with their charm and warm personality. They can read other people very easily and use their intuitive skills to adapt effortlessly to changing situations. They are excellent at exciting and persuading others to follow their suggestions. When presenting information to this style, one should use a friendly, personal, conversational approach, use anecdotes, testimonials and other stories, and make them the center of attention.
