The Individual Online Assessment - HBDI Profile



The HBDI® is a powerful psychometric assessment that defines and describes the way you think and process information. It gives you insight into why you value certain types of information over others. With that valuable knowledge about yourself, you can learn how to “flex” into other ways of thinking to adapt to others – how they think, what they value, how they communicate – so you can bridge the gap, quickly. The HBDI is built on Whole Brain® Thinking, a holistic and complete model for making all kinds of decisions.

Over two-million people worldwide have undergone HBDI analysis. It is used by over one third of all Fortune 100 companies. Where most assessments end with a single report, the HBDI offers a valuable range of applications. Identifying your thinking style preferences is only the first step.

How does it work?

The HBDI identifies and measures the strength of preference for each of the four distinct thinking styles. These correspond to the cerebral hemispheres and the limbic system of the brain.


The two left side structures combine to represent what is popularly called left brain thinking. The two right side structures combine to represent right brain thinking. The two cerebral structures combine to represent cerebral thinking and the two limbic structures combine to represent limbic thinking.

The HBDI, through its series of 120 questions, is capable of measuring the degree of preference between each of the four individual thinking structures (quadrants) and each of the four paired structures (modes). This results in a four quadrant profile, which displays the degree of preference for each of the four quadrants—your HBDI Profile. Scoring results are free of value judgment and cultural bias. Because it is a self-analysis, most people immediately recognize their results as accurate.

The HBDI Profile package includes a full color profile, accompanying interpretation booklets that explain the profile and scores in detail, and a discussion of the implications that your results have for business and personal life.
