Thinking Styles Katherine Benziger – Thinking Styles Assessment How our brains ACTUALLY function Dr Katherine Benziger takes a completely different approach to thinking styles assessment, which in complete contrast to the theoretical and philosophical basis of most psycho-metric tests, focuses assesxment the physiological and neurological aspects of how our brains actually function.
As this is a physiological and neurological assessment it is arguably a more objective method of assessment than psychometric tests.
Benziger’s Thinking Styles Assessment
Katherine Benziger’s assessment tools are based on the measurement of brain function and energy consumption in the brain. Her model recognises that the brain has four specialised areas responsible for different brain functions – and significantly we each have natural strengths in only one of these specific areas, and thus we quite naturally prefer to use the thinking style associated with that strength – this is referred to as the “preferred thinking and behavioural mode”.
Mode 1 located in the basal left Brain functions: Katherine Benziger has identified that when people adapt their natural thinking and working styles to fit expectations of others, normally created by work and career, tension and stress results and people tend to “falsify type” as they think and behave in ways that are unnatural to them, and predictably this creates problems in their work performance.
Relating directly to this is the work Arlene Taylor PhD, a leading specialist in ‘wellness’ sinceand collaborator with Benziger for much of that time. Dr Arlene Taylor, a long time collaborator with Benziger, has developed Benziger’s observations about the “cost of falsifying type”, and as published in in their joint paper ‘The Physiological Foundations of Falsification of Type and PASS’ has identified a range of symptoms collectively known as “Prolonged Adaption Stress Syndrome” PASS that arise as a result of falsification of type: Immune system alterations 4.
