NBI ® Profiles

NBI ® is a profiling tool created to measure a person’s thinking preferences. Thinking preferences are your preferred ways of thinking while working in your most natural state. If you are working outside of your thinking preference, you are likely to feel unsatisfied with the activity and your energy levels might drop.

Use the NBI ® Profiles listed below to discover your own thinking preference and in doing so better understand yourself and those around you.

Business & Teams

NBI® Creativity Style

Your Creativity Profile will give you an insight into how you are creative. Every human being is born naturally highly creative, but unfortunately most of us lose some of our creativity because of conditioning processes that take place in our schooling and upbringing.

This Instrument identifies the type of creativity you use and apply. Because the focus is on thinking preferences, the end result is not good or bad, right or wrong. The NBI® Creativity Style Profile is a descriptive and objective analysis of the individual’s thinking choices, with no profile being better or worse than another. Instead, the report gives a description of an individual’s thought preferences and makes recommendations based on those.

NBI® Adult Instrument

This instrument measures an individual’s thinking preferences. Gaining insight into the way we prefer to think makes us more aware of and sensitive to the preferences of others.

Developing better relationships, making more dynamic contributions to the team and making sound and relevant decisions are but a few of the advantages of understanding your own thinking profile. Making more accurate job and career choices or determining the correct subject or study selections could eventually lead to a more productive and fulfilled personal and professional life.

Because the focus of this NBI® profile is on thinking preferences, the end result is not good or bad, right or wrong. The NBI™ provides a profile of thinking preference which is a descriptive, objective analysis of the individual’s thinking choices, with no profile being better or worse than another.

Why do we need two types of NBI® – one to focus on thinking preferences and the other to assess skills?

A person could well have a preference for certain things without the ability to see them through. For example, it is possible that an individual could have a very strong preference for order, planning and organisation, but has never had the opportunity to develop the skills to plan and organise.

On the other hand, it is possible that a person could have excellent skills to be a banker, but have a very low preference for the processes associated with the job. This, of course, could lead to a lot of frustration! The individual would therefore not be able to sustain the passion and energy to stay happy and productive in the banking environment.

 

A person’s brain is divided into four different thinking quadrants:

L1 – Analytical and factual
L2 – Organised and detailed

R1 – Strategic and unorthodox
R2 – Interpersonal and sensitive

 

Each of the four quadrants is further divided in two to give 8 distinct dimensions to a person’s thinking preference.

 

The Brain Profile gives an indication of how you:

  • act towards other people
  • do business
  • communicate
  • learn
  • teach
  • solve problems
  • form relationships
  • play sport etc.

The NBI® Leadership Style

Your Leadership Brain Profile will give you insight into your leadership style, issues that are important to you (but maybe not to your employees or colleagues) and even where there could be room for improvement!

Developing better relationships, making more dynamic contributions in the workplace and making sound and relevant decisions are but a few of the advantages of understanding your own thinking profile. Improving relationships and the creation of a positive work environment result from the leader who leads with his/her whole brain.

Because the focus is on thinking preferences, the end result is neither good nor bad. The Leadership Profile is a descriptive, objective analysis of the individual’s thinking choices, with no profile being better or worse than another. Instead, the report gives a description of an individual’s thought preferences and makes recommendations based on those.

The Leadership Profile measures thinking preferences, and not the skills or abilities necessary to execute those preferences. It is therefore possible that an individual could have a very strong preference for order, planning and organisation, but has never had the opportunity to develop the skills to plan and organise. The recommendation in this instance would be that since the desire is there, the skills to support that desire should be developed in order to be effective in a given career.

NBI® Personal Negativity Instrument

The NBI® Personal Negativity Instrument will give you a greater insight into your negative thinking. It identifies the processes most likely to cause your negativity which can block your happiness and success.

Your standard Adult Profile (measuring your thinking preferences) and your Personal Negativity Profile will not look the same. In fact, you will often have a high negativity score in a quadrant where you have low brain preferences. For example, you may have low brain preferences for detail, organisation and structure (the L2 quadrant), while when working in an environment where these processes receive strong emphasis, you may experience high negativity towards these processes and therefore have a high negativity score in this quadrant.

Likewise, an environment in itself also has a “thinking preference.” This means that an environment that is unstructured and free-flowing, such as children playing at a creche, corresponds with a flowing manner of thinking. For someone who has a severe desire for control and organisation, such a place can be quite harrowing.

By uncovering what your negativity profile is, you will be an insightful individual equipped with the ability to foresee where your struggles might be, and thus be able to combat them more effectively.

The NBI® Relationship Style

The NBI® Relationship Style instrument provides insight into your relationship style and issues that are important to you (but may not be to your partner), as well as identifying where there could be room for improvement in your relationship.

Developing better relationships, making more dynamic contributions within the relationship, and making sound and relevant decisions are but a few of the advantages of understanding your relationship style.

Since the focus of this NBI® instrument is on thinking preferences, the end result is not good or bad, right or wrong. The NBI® Relationship 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 NBI® Skills instrument

The NBI® Skills instrument identifies an individual’s personal skills. You may have acquired skills in a particular area that are not really indicative of your brain preferences. Alternatively, you may have a very strong preference in one area, but have never had the opportunity to develop the necessary skills in that area.

It could happen that your skills profile differs from your preference profile. The most common reason for this is that preferring (‘liking’) something does not automatically mean you have the skills to execute or implement the preference.

Sometimes the opposite is true. A person may have excellent skills for accounting, but have little or no preference for doing the work of an accountant. It would be very difficult to sustain passion and energy if the correlation between the preference profile and skills profile is low.

Finding out how your skills and thinking preferences correlate or differ can make the difference in finding the fulfilment and proficiency you have been looking for.

Education & Parenting

NBI® Junior Student Instrument

This instrument measures your thinking preferences as a student. Why is it that some students prefer a quiet environment whilst others seem to work well with loud music and a messy workplace? Why are some students keen on Maths and Science whilst others prefer the arts and humanities?

Subject choices at school – and a career choice a little later – are key decisions for EVERY student!

Making the wrong choices can often lead to poor performance and years of frustration for the student, the teachers and of course the parents. Making an informed decision, on the other hand, can lead to a lot of satisfaction and achievement, as well as promising the student an interesting and rewarding career.

Because subject and career choices are so important for future success and happiness, the NBI® Junior Student Instruments are offered at a special subsidised rate!

NBI® Teacher/trainer Instrument

The NBI® Teacher/Trainer Instrument is a special version of the adult instrument, thus the focus is on your thinking preferences in the teaching and training environment. The report will be written with a teacher/trainer setting in mind.

Our research has shown us that classrooms with a whole brain focus are more effective and better disciplined than those without it.

What does this mean?

Your thinking preferences will affect the way you teach, while the thinking preferences of a student will affect how they learn. It is obvious then that this knowledge is precious to both the teacher and the student alike.

This profiling instrument will help teachers understand their own thinking preferences, which in turn will give them extra insight into the learning styles of their students. Learning about your teaching profile may be the moment where you realise why some students click with your style of teaching and others do not.

There is no good or bad, right or wrong profile. Every manner of thinking has its benefits, and every manner of thinking can be adapted depending on what the student or subject matter requires.

How you think will impact your interpretation of the information you are taking in, as well as how you appraise your experiences.

For the player, doing the NBI® Netball will lead to a better understanding of her/himself, the overall picture of the game. The player will also be improving his/her game by helping them to make better decisions during key moments. These are but a few advantages of understanding a player’s whole brain netball profile. Making better whole brain choices will lead to an improved and more fulfilled experience of the game.

Because the focus is on thinking preferences, the end result is neither good nor bad.

Instead, the report gives a description of the netball player’s thought preferences and makes recommendations based on those.

 

The NBI® Netball Profile details

The NBI® Netball profile measures thinking preferences and not skills or abilities necessary to execute those preferences. It is therefore possible that an individual could have a very strong preference for playing with preciseness and accuracy, but may not have had the opportunity to develop all the skills to accomplish it effectively.

On the other hand, it is possible that a player could have excellent skills and technique, but with a low preference for the processes of the left brain. This could lead to a rejection of the skills learned and a riskier approach to the game. The player will therefore not be able to reach his/her full potential.

This report will give the individual player, the team as well as the coach amazing insight into the influence of the thinking brain on individual and team performance.
