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. Occupations typical of this profile would include human resource professionals and those in counseling and helping positions particularly when there is a heavy administrative load.

Getting along smoothly in life requires some ability to see things the way the other person does. This profile is a singular dominant profile, the most preferred processing mode occurring in Upper Left A quadrant with characteristics of logic, analysis, rational and quantitative thinking.

The left mode secondaries with logical, analytical and mathematical thinking styles from Upper Left A and organization, planning and structure from Lower Left B, being functional, yet clearly secondary to the preferred right modes of thinking.

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. 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 SperryHhdi OrnsteinHenry Mintzbergand Michael Gazzaniga.


Then there is the guy way out on his own at the top.

Occupations would include positions which would be technically or financially oriented with a strong preference for people interaction or an interpersonal focus, such as investment counselors, technical trainers or social service lawyers. Therefore this person would typically be functional in the processing modes of control, organization, structure and planning. Persons with this profile, typically, are drawn to occupations in Human Resources and where there is scope hbvi interpersonal skills.

A tertiary preference in the D quadrant would be demonstrated by a lack of preference for holistic, creative, synthesizing and integrative modes of thinking. As a result, the Upper Right D characteristics would be relatively invisible and the three primaries would impact the person’s mental preferences with a fair amount of balance.

The opposing qualities of control and structure, contrasting with the emotional and interpersonal feelings can cause internal conflict. Occupations with this profile are those that require effective processing in all four quadrants. This page was last edited on 17 Mayat The Upper Left A quadrant is expressed as a tertiary.

This tertiary preference in the C quadrant would be demonstrated by a lack of preference for interpersonal, intuitive, and emotional modes of thinking. Overview Lower Left B quadrant preferences include planning, organizing, implementing and administrative activities. Characteristics of this profile would be analytical, rational and quantitative processing of Upper Left A, with controlled, conservative, structured and organized processing modes of Lower Left B.

The secondary in the Upper Right D quadrant would make the characteristics of holistic, artistic and conceptual modes of processing functional, yet secondary in preference.

While these processing modes are relatively well balanced and functional, the singular preference for quadrant B would represent the primary mode of thinking for this profile. The most natural problem solving strategies would include those strategies the individual feels best fit the situation.

These right mode primaries become the more visible owing to the absence of strong left mode qualities ie. The three remaining quadrants are functional, yet the Upper Left A quadrant and Lower Right C quadrant are distinctly secondary. 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.

Ned Herrmann described hgdi of a particular thinking style with dominance with a portion of a brain hemisphere. One advantage of having a singular dominant profile is that there is relatively little internal conflict. The secondary preference appears in the Lower Left B, while the least preferred quadrant, expressed as a tertiary, is in the Upper Left A quadrant.

This individual would be more experimental than safe-keeping and more emotional than controlled.

A good way to integrate diagonally opposed preferences is to enhance abilities in one of the other two quadrants. Two facts are clear from the studies of over one million profiles studied across the world in the Herrmann International database.

This is a singular dominant profile, the most preferred quadrant being the Upper Left A quadrant with the characteristics of logical, analytical, rational and quantitative processing. The preferences for the Left modes of processing would be even more pronounced in this profile as they are reinforced by the extreme lack of preference for the Right mode.

The Upper Right is holistic, conceptual, creative and synthesizing. As opposing modes, double dominant left might perceive their right counterpart as unrealistic and unfocused.
