GET YOUR COGNITIVE PROFILE...
Before you begin...
Thank you for helping us with our research.
If you are familiar with Jungian psychology, cognitive science or models of development,
we ask you to set aside any ideas you may have.
Instructions: Please read carefully each of the 48 phrases below. For each phrase:
Indicate how often you do skillfully what the phrase describes.
Use dictionary definitions and go with the overall meaning most comfortable to you.
If you don't understand a phrase then mark it as "not me."
This is a serious questionnaire to help you discover what cognitive processes you use well,
as opposed to surface behavior or what you value. Some cognitive processes may be outside your awareness or experience,
so just understanding the various phrases is part the assessment. Some phrases may take time to reflect.
What You'll Get: Based on your responses, you will get a cognitive development profile along with a best-match
personality code, best-match temperament, and descriptions of your likely preferred cognitive processes. You will also receive
suggestions for further exploration.
