About the MindTime® Foundation

What We Do

The mission of the Mindtime Foundation is to raise people’s awareness of the unique strengths and gifts that each individual brings to the world through the theory of MindTime.

We accomplish our mission directly through our our profile tools, workshops and labs, webcasts, public speaking, and social media engagement.

We are a social impact initiative that blends economic sustainability with positive social impact values. We seek to build value-chain-based economic networks to leverage this new understanding.

Through an open innovation business strategy, we enable adoption and learning of the theory of MindTime to sustainably provide a global standard to help people understand people and collaborate.

The MindTime logo represents the union of every archetype. We believe that everyone can relate more harmoniously and collaborate more effectively once they have come to understand their own thinking style and its relationship to others.

I’m involved with the MindTime Foundation because I believe in both the overarching mission and the work we do day-to-day. I find great fullfilment in the work and our team’s commitment to making it happen, everyday.

I bring value through my ability to hold our vision, steer our efforts and define our strategy along with the rest of the team. I’m also very involved with the development and creation of new products, educational content and the workshops and events we create.

It’s my hope to see MindTime become a universal language for people to understand people.

I have always wanted to make the most positive impact on the world I could. Working with my MindTime colleagues is my way of helping people understand each other, with the aim of reducing suffering through miscommunication and wasted potential.

My research in human-computer interaction and experience in building software helps me in guiding MindTime in becoming a truly modern and global company, making the best use of technology to help us spread our message.

I’m a jack of many trades. I am a self-development writer, architectural designer and graphic artist and community builder. Not surprisingly I fall into the Future archetype, Visionary. I love the big picture. Is there any other picture?

MindTime has fascinated me since first learning of it from its founder, John Furey, in 2016. I am on board because of MindTime’s great potential to improve communication and understanding between people. Like the rest of the team, I’m called on to play many roles.

Mindtime has allowed me to understand people better and to better understand how I act and behave. Being involved in the translation of MindTime to Portuguese and using it within the private and professional arenas, has taken my understanding of collaboration, team effectiveness and impactful communication to a higher level. And… MindTime is fun!

My role in the MindTime Foundation is providing a technological part of the story – development of the MindTime API. Understanding other people, their thinking style and what drives them was always a challenge. MindTime helped me with that a great deal. I am sure it will help other people too.

I’m a Sofware Engineer passionate about creating software which unlocks people’s potential, which empowers them to do and achieve more. It’s been a privilege to work on a technical side of MindTime along with the others and hope that it will help people to understand themselves and others better.

Although our original nature is timeless, how we use our minds—how we think—as we interact in the world of time and with others influences everything we do: our perceptions and cognitions; the goals we set, our motivations and preferences; our relationships with others, and the personality characteristics we manifest.

I am fortunate to be a part of this and previous collaborations involving the development, validation, and publication of the theory of MindTime and profile instruments based on the theory. Unlike other personality taxonomies and instruments, all of which are descriptive in nature, MindTime is only one that actually explains why people are the way they are and behave the way they do. I am convinced that, in the near future, MindTime will be the dominant theory of individual differences.

My job at the foundation is administrative management and to support our people and processes wherever I can.

Working with the mindtime foundation has brought me the most wonderful insights about myself, my personal relationships and the people I work with. On top of that, it is amazing to work with a team of people that is highly aware of their own, and their team members thinking styles. It brings communication and mutual understanding to a whole new level. I feel very fortunate to work with great people who all believe in what the mindtime foundation wants to achieve: helping people understand people all over the world.
