MindTime® Archetypes vs Personality Types
There are two ways to understand something.
Observe its behaviours or unlock its operating system.
Nearly all personality type test such as MBTI, DiSC, and Big 5, use a number of observable behavioural traits to describe a person’s personality, for example the Big 5 uses: extraversion; agreeableness; conscientiousness; neuroticism; and openness. There are literally hundreds of such personality traits to choose from, very few of which have any meaningful predictive value. In the world of these trait based models there is no true framework or overarching theory of differences, just a lot of descriptions of behaviours (traits).
MindTime describes the operating system of the human mind
MindTime is a complete theory and framework supported by powerful digital and analogue tools to understand individual differences and personality. There are three fundamental priorities that drive the behavior of every sentient being. These priorities act as the filters we perceive through, the mechanisms behind how thoughts are shaped, the drivers of what motivates us at the most fundamental level, and the origins of how we behave. MindTime is highly predictive because it is measuring these fundamental priorities in each person, the origins of behaviours, rather than the behaviours as described by a traits.
MindTime is the first a priori theory of individual differences in psychology, supported by over two decades of reliable science.
As the name suggests, MindTime reveals how Time, a universally shared phenomena, is at the root of all abstract thinking processes of mind.
Unlike personality tests and far beyond their capabilities MindTime is able to describe individuals, team cultures and organisations as thinking systems all within one common framework and language.
To read some of our research and peer reviewed articles into the relationship between the MindTime framework and individual traits (including the Big 5) read here. MindTime is highly parsimonious with findings in individual trait based research, findings in neuro psychology, and cultural sciences.
