This dynamic tool describes the intricate nature of your thinking pattern. Unlike personality, thinking styles can be developed over time to deliver outstanding results. Understanding behavioural preferences allows you to keep yourself and your clients on the cutting edge of this evolving methodology.
The Meta Dynamics ™ Profiling Tool measures 16 dimensions and provides you with an exclusive window into your potential. By knowing why you do what you do you enables you to achieve new goals and evolve into the person you want to be. This 16-dimension questionnaire assesses your preferences, particularly in the everyday context. Each dimension refers to a specific part of thinking styles such as influencing, resiliency, outcome focused etc.
The questionnaire requires you to respond to behavioural statements such as “I influence people’s opinion” in terms of your agreement or disagreement with the item. Similarly to most personality and behavioural assessments such as the Occupational Personality Questionnaire and eDISC, the Meta Dynamics™ Profiling Tool also links back to the NEO-PI(R) Personality Test, MBTI and Big 5 model of personality which has long become a widely accepted model of personality and behavioural assessments for decades.
Underpinning the behavioural preferences are 41 primary characteristics, all of which are assessed by the MDPT(i)
