What's the scientific basis for MindFrames?

All thought, as well as the behavior and personality patterns that result from thought, takes place in the human brain. That's why MindFrames is based on decades of research into how the brain does its work.

Like a computer, your brain processes information. Think of the brain as the "hardware." The "software" programs are the skills, habits and coping mechanisms you've acquired throughout life. These programs process the "data," such as facts, sights, sounds, memories and other input. The results of all this processing are your decisions and actions—your thought and behavior patterns.

Physically, the thinking part of your brain is the outer layer. It has four regions. The two back regions collect and store data—images, perceptions, experiences, details and facts. The two front regions relate the data to understand what it means. The left side is language-based and organizes knowledge logically. The right side is nonverbal and associates impressions intuitively.

As a result, each of the four regions of the brain performs a special kind of thinking. In turn, each region triggers a special kind of action. That's a total of four thought patterns and four action patterns. We call these eight distinct patterns "mindframes," because you experience them as frames of mind.

The MindFrames self-assessment measures how often you use each of the eight mindframes. While you probably use all of them every day, you depend on some more than others. These preferences define the style of your personality and help make you a unique individual.
