The Brain Type Institute has made Brain Type® assessments on thousands of people–many well-known. Most of these “famous” persons were not evaluated in person but rather by video tape analysis using Brain Typing’s methodologies. These evaluations are based on BTI’s years of typological, scientific, and empirical studies. Though we believe the appraisals are correct, we do not want them held as absolute—lest people profiled be unfairly judged by those who do not fully understand Brain Types. BTI intends only for the positive application of this information and desires readers to grasp its essence—that each person possesses an inborn design, one of 16 individual Brain Types, which predisposes him or her to specific cognitive, physical, and spatial traits.

    • 4/24/17 – Agassi beat Becker because of his tongue
      When it comes to noticing the details of life, dominant Empiracals rule the roost.  Reality is their forte.  “What is” is their best friend.  The here-and-now dominates their consciousness 24/7 (well, except while they’re sleeping), hence largely blocking out the Cerebral, imaginative world that dominant Conceptuals dwell in (which is [...]
    • 4/20/17 – Inside the brains of Paul McCartney and John Lennon
      To say the least, the Beatles were unique, not only for their music, but also for a few band member Brain Types.  Paul McCartney,the leader of the pack, is a #11 FCAL, a rare design when it comes to male singing stardom.  In fact, there hasn’t been another well-known #11 [...]
    • 4/17/17 – So why did Prince Charles marry Diana?
      It’s always a bit fascinating to write about the Royal family, namely because within their genes are a diversity of Brain Types.  One has The Queen Mother (#3 FEAL), her daughter the current Queen Elizabeth (#15 FCIL), and her son Prince Charles (#16 BCIL) who married the late Princess Diana (#3 [...]
    • 4/12/17 – The unique Sergio Garcia wins the Masters
      One could have Brain Typed him by his reaction alone after winning the 2017 Masters Golf Championship.  Kneeling down twice and clenching his fists in fiery passion, placing his head on the chest of competitor Justin Rose (#13 FCIR) and smiling a smile as big and bright as the sun, [...]
    • 4/7/17 – Nancy Kerrigan melts down during rehearsal
      A quick update on Dancing With The Stars and Nancy Kerrigan (#3 FEAL) for our readers.  Days ago, headlines read, “Nancy Kerrigan melts down during rehearsal.”  So what happened?  Nancy was given a compliment.  Yep, that’s it.  Dance partner Artem Chigvintsev told Kerrigan she “looked good.”  In response, while talking [...]
    • 3/31/17 – The failure of Ryan and Trump
      Uh oh!  It looks like President Donald Trump has gotten a little too high on his horse lately, a particular pitfall of the #15 FCIL when they think they’re invincible.  Our readers are probably aware by now of the recent health care bill that was shot down by conservative Republicans who [...]
    • 3/30/17 – Kindred spirits, Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady
      Yesterday we talked about two teammates who didn’t get along.  Today we want to talk about two unselfish teammates who really got along. Remember back when Yao Ming (#9 FCAR) and Tracy McGrady (#6 BEIR) were an item for the Houston Rockets?  They were like Batman and Robin, and neither fought for [...]
    • 3/28/17 – The rift between Terrell Owens and Donovan McNabb
      What happens when two Animate ‘feelers’ get miffed at each other?  Well, depends on how they were raised. Terrell Owens and Donovan McNabb were NFL teammates who just didn’t get a long, and people have wondered why.  After all, they were roommates and soulmates all through their first training camp.  Owens, [...]
    • 3/23/17 – Paul Ryan finds Trump ‘Reaganesque’
      Just days after a phone recording was revealed from 2016 with the voice of Paul Ryan stating to fellow Republicans, “I am not going to defend Donald Trump.  Not now, ever,” the Speaker of the House is singing a new tune.  Apparently, all he needed was a little quality time [...]
    • 3/21/17 – Nancy Kerrigan on ‘Dancing With The Stars’
      “Dancing With The Stars” gives us a chance to see some different Brain Types take the stage.  We’ve written previously about the disaster that was #7 FEIL Kate Gosling, among others, and for season 24 we will be witnessing another Left brain dominant female take the stage.  This gal, however, [...]
    • 3/16/17 – NFL’s Greg Hardy falls on hard times
      Brain Typists don’t typically think of the #3 FEAL as being “haughty”, or necessarily “cocky”.  Particularly among females, they are kind-hearted individuals who enjoy conversation and hospitality, deriving energy simply by mingling with people.  Males, too, can share these qualities, though in sports they tend to over-focus on self-image, desiring [...]
    • 3/14/17 – Dirk Nowitzki scores 30,000 points
      He’s a talented star in his own right, and arguably the best #10 BCAR to have ever played the game. On Tuesday, Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki became the sixth payer in NBA history to reach 30,000 points, joining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#10 BCAR), Karl Malone (#5 FEIR), Kobe Bryant (#2 [...]
    • 3/13/17 – When Kendall Gill tried strangling Jim McIlvaine
      The #12 BCAL is a very rare bird, especially in the NBA. Those old enough may remember Jim McIlvaine, the tall white guy who spent seven seasons with the Washington Bullets, Seattle SuperSonics and New Jersey Nets. Yes, he was/is a #12 who, all things considered, did well enough for [...]
    • 3/9/17 – Kevin Garnett channels Beyonce
      Former NBAer Kevin Garnett always tried to play the “bad boy” type, but Brain Type enthusiasts were never fooled.  A #9 FCAR, Kevin was all heart and emotion (and talk!), but never the killer instinct, ala the #6 BEIR.  So when it came out recently that KG, who recently joined [...]
    • 3/6/17 – Warren Beatty passes the buck
      Quick!  Among all Inanimate, logic-seeking Brain Types, which is the slowest to reach an in-the-moment conclusion? Quick! If you said the #16 BCIL, you would be quite correct.  Catch the Oscars last week?  Even if you didn’t, you probably heard about what happened.  Warren Beatty (#16 BCIL) and Faye Dunaway (#13 [...]
    • 3/1/17 – Sammy Sosa and Jesus have what in common?
      The #9 FCAR can have a tendency to say things that are not quite logical, or thoroughly thought out, or perhaps just a little extreme.  Kanye West is one of the best examples, who has several times compared himself to Jesus.  In fact, the lyrics to one of his songs [...]
    • 2/27/17 – The death of Alan Colmes
      In a bit of very sad news, Fox News Channel’s Alan Colmes (#13 FCIR) passed away this morning after a “brief illness”, leaving behind his wife, Jocelyn Crowley.  His family issued the statement: “Alan Colmes passed away this morning after a brief illness. He was 66-years-old. He leaves his adoring and devoted [...]
    • 2/21/17 – Donald Trump’s “Apprentice” news conference
      It was a sudden news conference he called for last week, and after an hour and 15 minutes of talking and answering questions, we again were shown how the #15 FCIL is the master BT on their feet in terms of articulating contextual logic, keeping command of their audience, and [...]
    • 2/20/17 – John Daly tosses club in lake
      You’re angry.  Your body hurts.  You’re playing golf, and you’re playing terribly at that.  You’re #5 FEIR John Daly, so what do you do?  You throw your club in the lake and walk off the course. “Daly was struggling with some back issues and not playing great golf. After back-to-back bogeys [...]
    • 2/16/17 – Steve Young and Left brain quarterbacks
      Try finding Left brain dominant quarterbacks in the NFL in 2017 and you’ll be truly hard-pressed.  (There is only 1 such QB among the 30 teams–#4 BEAL Carson Palmer.)  Left brainers could play QB in NFL antiquity much easier than in today’s fast moving, sophisticated game; nonetheless, try finding any [...]
    • 2/14/17 – Doug Christie won’t offend anyone
      Yesterday we touched upon former NBA star #6 BEIR Bill Walton, now a sports television commentator known for his frank words and candid opinions. But, what happens when you take a #1O BCAR and put a microphone in front of him? Usually, nothing much. That is, nothing too controversial. Does anyone [...]
    • 2/13/17 – Bill Walton and overcoming Brain Type
      At times we are asked, “Can’t Brain Typing be used as a crutch?”  That is, once one discovers one’s inborn design, an excuse can be developed to limit self as far as what can and cannot be accomplished.  Such an excuse is exaggerated, especially as it pertains to every day [...]
    • 2/7/17 – Patriots grill ‘Matty Melt’ in Super Bowl 51
      Like the shocking victory of “comeback kid” Donald Trump (#15 FCIL), the New England Patriots and their master strategist, Bill Belichick (another #15!), rallied to stun a world audience and its NFL foe, the Atlanta Falcons.  Trailing 25 points in the third quarter, somehow, someway, the Pats rose from the [...]

      In a bit of sad news, Kansas City Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura was killed in a car crash on Sunday while in the Dominican Republic.  “We are deeply saddened to learn of the tragic passing of Andy Marte and Yordano Ventura,” players union executive Tony Clark said. Our thoughts and prayers [...]
    • 2/2/17 – Neil Gorsuch, and the rule that could bite Harry Reid in the butt
      The battle now begins as President Donald Trump (#15 FCIL) has nominated Neil Gorsuch to be the new Supreme Court Justice of the United States.  Gorsuch is an affable #13 FCIR with a conservative record that looks to match that of Antonio Scalia (#13 FCIR) whom he will be potentially replacing.  Most [...]
    • 1/31/17 – Brady: Science Proves He’s NOT the Best
      Tom Brady and his New England Patriots are headed back to the Super Bowl this week, all thanks to a near-perfectly-built system reliant on one compliant quarterback and one strategic-commanding coach. But first, let’s step back for a moment and consider a few facts that even an arm-chair or Monday-morn quarterback could [...]
    • 1/30/17 – Has Madonna gone mad?
      People are beginning to wonder … has Madonna gone mad?  The longtime pop singer expressed herself rather bluntly at the Women’s March in Washington D.C. last week when she stated, “Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.  But [...]
    • 1/24/17 – Patriots easily defeat Pittsburgh Steelers
      Well, despite the fact that he was suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the season for “Deflategate,” Tom Brady (#9 FCAR) and his Patriot team had no difficulties in reaching the playoffs thanks to mastermind coach Bill Belichick (#15 FCIL), who seemingly could have reached the same [...]
    • 1/23/17 – Atlanta Falcons defeat Green Bay Packers
      It was another weekend of elimination in the NFL, as the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons are on their way to the Super Bowl after each defeating their respective opponents, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers.

    • 1/19/17 – What is Dion Lewis’ Brain Type?
      Hey NFL fans (or those who hate football)!  It’s time again to put on your BT X-ray vision goggles and analyze a running back for the New England Patriots, Dion Lewis.  He is only 5 foot 7 inches tall, but one of the league’s most talented RBs.  Take your time, [...]
    • 1/17/17 – Antonio Brown records coach in the locker room
      So what Brain Type has the propensity to be oblivious to their surroundings, both visibly and audibly?  Or again, which of the 16 designs would be least apt to logically consider the implications of an action, or critique whether what they’re doing may not be the best idea?  The runner-ups [...]
    • 1/13/17 – How should the Packers defend Dak Prescott?
      How should the Packers defend Dak Prescott this weeknd?  It’ll be hard since he has what is considered the best offensive line in the NFL, including one of its best running backs, an outstanding receiving corps, and a much better D in “Big D” than any recent years.  Plus, the [...]
    • 1/12/17 – Breaking! Dak Prescott’s inborn Brain Type
      Many of you have been patiently waiting since our last article on Dak Prescott several weeks ago.  In the article we informed our readers that Prescott  is no Peyton Manning, John Elway, or Joe Montana. His motor movements are quite different.  For those who recall all the #5 QBs and [...]
    • 1/11/17 – Dontari Poe becomes a 350-pound quarterback
      Have you ever seen a 350-pound quarterback?  We haven’t either, but last week Chiefs defensive tackle Dontari Poe became just that when he leaped into the air and completed a play that’s been labeled, “The Hungry Pig Right.”  It’s an actual play, and that’s what it’s really called! When Poe first accepted [...]
    • 1/5/17 – UFC’s Ronda Rousey falls flat to Amanda Nunes
      Hey what’s one sport you rarely see mentioned on the BTInsider?  That’s right, UFC fighting!  Today, however, is your lucky day!

    • 1/3/17 – The “outgoing” businessman, Shaquille O’Neal
      Some continue to ask us, “How is Shaquille O’Neal a #6 BEIR?  He’s so goofy and outgoing.”  While we’ve answered this question in detail many times before, let us remind our viewers, especially the new ones, of a few important points regarding the 7-foot superman.  Jon Niednagel first spotted Shaquille [...]

    • 12/20/16 – So why did Horace Grant wear those ugly goggles?
      Michael Jordan (#6 BEIR) is as familiar a face as almost anyone on the planet.  Still, there was another Chicago Bulls player whose face most of us probably remember as equally well.  It was frequently covered in goggles, in fact, and that should quickly bring one name to your mind … [...]
    • 12/19/16 – Ray Lewis meets with Donald Trump
      So, what’s it like when a #5 FEIR former superstar athlete meets a future #15 FCIL President of the United States?  Well, let Ray Lewis tell you. Last week, the former footballer met with Donald Trump in the famous Trump Tower to talk inner city restoration, and he went on ESPN’s “The [...]

    • 12/8/16 – Jayson Williams calls himself a coward
      It was a freak incident, and one which former NBA player Jayson Williams (#13 FCIR) will never forget.  Some readers may recall when the former Nets player shot and killed his limo driver, Gus Christofi, while showing him his shotgun years back.  Williams was giving Christofi a tour of his [...]
    • 12/7/16 – Loretta Lynn smoking marijuana?
      “They tell me to rest all the time, but I’m not tired!” That’s #3 FEAL Loretta Lynn speaking, who is now 84 years old.  The country singing legend is just one of a very select few #3s to make it on “the map” in the entertainment industry, and she’s still going [...]
    • 12/5/16 – J.R. Smith and Jason Terry share some off-court love

    • 12/1/16 – Saying goodbye to Carol Brady
      She was America’s cheerful, glowing, positive mother in the 60s and 70s, and we all simply knew her as Carol.  Carol Brady, that is, and she was the beloved matriarch of the “The Brady Bunch,” which broadcast from 1969 to 1974.  Her real name was Florence Henderson, and last week saw her passing [...]
    • 11/28/16 – Nancy Pelosi does not want to give up power
      Watch out!  Nancy Polosi does not want to give up power!

    • 11/21/16 – The death of Janet Reno
      She was “shy and admittedly awkward,” a woman who was blunt, abrupt, and constantly at the center of political storms.  She ordered the highly-controversial raid on the Branch Davidian compound at Waco, Texas, while also demanding the seizure of 5-year-old Cuban immigrant Elian Gonzalez, sending him back to Cuba.  Yes, [...]

    • 11/8/16 – Tom and Dirk don’t want to be coaches
      Here’s the plain truth.  Some Brain Types just don’t make good coaches … naturally.  We add “naturally” because there have been a few non-BT-gifted individuals who have found success by implementing strategies and tactics that were learned.  That is, they were well-nurtured by another, albeit a parent, coach, or close-knit [...]

    • 10/19/16 – Alex Trebek and nerdy “losers”
      They are prone to say it like it is, unless curtailed by political, financial, or similar-type motives.  So, when Alex Trebek (#15 FCIL) of the ‘Jeopardy’ game show came one step shy of calling one contestant a “loser”, it really didn’t come as a surprise. “Alex Trebek had harsh words for one [...]
    • 10/17/16 – Kawhi Leonard shows his true colors
      The “Introvert” is finally beginning to show his true colors, or shall we say “genetic makeup,” also known as genotype.  His persona, or phenotype, has long been described as quiet, but we have been telling BTInsiders from the beginning that he is clearly Front brain dominant and high energy.  We are [...]

    • 10/12/16 – Tony La Russa grills Colin Kaepernick
      The #16 BCIL typically doesn’t mind stepping on toes, particularly on issues about which they are principled.  They possess critical minds that question everything, logically pursuing every avenue of doubt.  Attempt to “pull the wool over their eyes,” and you will likely fail! While there have been critics of the NFL’s Colin Kaepernick [...]
    • 10/11/16 – The peaceful and playful BCARs, Hill and Clarkson
      Do you know much about the #10 BCAR?  They are typically playful, fun-loving people who just want to get along with the world and be appreciated for their talents.  Their nickname is the “Idealist”, meaning they seek for perfect peace, harmony, and tranquility in life.  If they don’t find it, [...]

    • 10/4/16 – Dwight Howard says goodbye to Kevin Garnett
      Kevin Garnett, also known as “The Big Ticket”, is a retired man now after spending 21 seasons in the NBA.  In a funny Tweet, fellow player Dwight Howard, who also shares KG’s #9 FCAR inborn Brain Type, stated, “KG.  My favorite player ever.  Thank you for inspiring me.  I’m going to miss all [...]
    • 10/3/16 – Greg Popovich is moving on
      Tim Duncan (#2 BEAR) is now retired, and coach Greg Popovich will no longer be bringing him carrot cake.  “Say what?” you ask.  It was a road ritual between the coach and player.  Greg knew Tim loved carrot cake, so while on the road he would often leave a package from a [...]
