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.

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 life, as opposed to sports. In sports, you wouldn’t tell 18-year old Johnny who is 5 foot 5 that he could be a star center in the NBA. In the same way, we wouldn’t tell a #12 BCAL 18-year old Johnny that he could be a star quarterback in the NFL. So in that sense, yes, there are limits, but those limits are greatly restricted.

When it comes to everyday life, on the other hand, there are few things any Brain Type cannot accomplish. Take former NBA star and current NBA commentator Bill Walton, a #6 BEIR, and what he had to share recently. I’m a stutterer. I never spoke to anybody. I lived most of my life by myself. But as soon as I got on the court I was fine. But in life, being so self conscious, red hair, big nose, freckles and goofy, nerdy looking face and can’t talk at all. I was incredibly shy and never said a word. Then, when I was 28 I learned how to speak. It’s become my greatest accomplishment of my life and everybody else’s biggest nightmare.

The #6 BEIR is rarely an accomplished orator, and Walton is no exception. (The #6‘s main brain locale is Q2, the most laconic region of the brain; Q1 and Q3 do the talking and Q4 supplies the appropriate words.) Coupled with a 7-foot lanky frame and looks that could intimidate, Walton had every reason to cast himself into the shadows of his Back brain introversion. After all, that is the way he was designed, right? No, rather, Walton pushed himself not only to become a great basketball player, but

an accomplished spokesman on national television and “everybody else’s biggest nightmare.”

lol, too funny. Though Bill dropped his inferior speech, he certainly didn’t drop his #6 inner thoughts which have finally gone public.

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 ruins as Falcons QB, known previously as Matty Ice, was anything but. Scores of circumstances ultimately led to this Atlanta debacle, but we’ll try to contextualize the game to narrow the major causes for this epic meltdown.

The Falcons lost the game more than the Pats won it, but both teams did their contrary bests to achieve the final outcome. Starting with the victors, leave it to one of the rare Left Brained NFL Head Coaches, and the only #15 Head Coach. The highly organized field marshal and CEO Bill Belichick once again out-witted a #13 FCIR coaching opponent. What’s more, Bill’s relentless defense caused the 2016 MVP #13 QB Matt Ryan to short-circuit in the game’s pressure-packed second half, ensuring the Pats conquest.

Before we cover that issue, who was the latest and unheralded Pats player to shine in yesterday’s game? All this no-name nobody did was set a Super Bowl record of 14 receptions while scoring 3 TD’s! What’s more, he’s not a receiver but a running back! That’s unheard of, you may say. Yes, it is, unless he’s being coached by the NFL’s best (by far) coach. James White was drafted by the Pats in 2014, the 130th pick. Prior to his 14 catches Sunday, he had totaled 60 the previous 16 games. How can this happen? Can you say Mastermind, Bill Belichick While we are at it, we should all say Bill’s name 5 times!

Coach Belichick deserved the game MVP, not one of his players. Every game the Pats play, he is MVP first and foremost. After that realization, let’s next look for secondary performers. Oh yes, most of his players had very good games at SB 51, but they all did what he’s trained them like robots to do unlike any other NFL coach. Sunday, White was the exceptional performer, the week before was obscure Chris Hogan, and on and on it goes. (And did you see Julian Edelman‘s SB immaculate reception, as well as his previous games? Not bad for a converted QB.) What did no-name backup QB, Jimmy Garoppolo, do in his 2 lone starts at the season’s beginning (when #9 FCAR Tom Brady was in NFL purgatory)? Not much other than winning his games with a pass completion percentage of over 70% and a QB rating exceeding 120!

Tom Brady played very well in SB 51, that is in the second-half. He was Pop Warner-like in crucial areas of the first-half. Missing receivers by wide margins, throwing into coverage while open receivers ran in his limited #9 BT periphery, he even threw a pick-6 after freezing on what to do during the play all these occurring after the pass rush was finally getting to him. Anxiety caused Brady’s dominant Conceptual brain to kick into high gear, and he started imagining what could be rather than (Empirically) seeing what was before him. The function also engulfed Matty Melt, unfortunately, for him in the second half. (We warned of this unwanted potential overcoming the 2 dominant QBs in last week’s article.)

But after Coach Belichick calmed the team at halftime and scripted safe plays to get back in the game, the Pats and Brady made their comeback. Did you notice Bill’s first 2-point conversion? It was a short sideways pass with 2 other wideouts running interference. This coaching ingenuity makes for an easy score and paralleled many other successful passes throughout the game. Not only does New England have top receivers at every position (in mindset and exact route running especially), but no NFL receivers are consistently more open as a team. Why? The foxy field marshal’s script often replicates the double picks for an NBA shooter. These screens are virtually impossible to stop, freeing the receiver for a wide-open reception.

No NFL team is better at rub routes than the Pats. Additionally, they have just average receivers, yet they know how to get open better than any, and their hands are normally sure. The Falcons defense ran out of gas as the game wore on, and Terrific Tommy had all day to find his receivers which he normally did. As we have proclaimed for many a moon, Brady has exceptional, inborn neurotransmitters and receptor sites enabling him and fellow #9 Drew Brees (with similar neurochemical health) to have the only #9 successful NFL careers. Among many positive attributes, all #9s can coordinate gross and fine motors better than any of the 16 inborn Brain Types. With much practice, this enables them to make highly accurate throws if relaxed and the brain is calm.

After Tom’s dismal first half, he was determined to excel within Coach Belichick’s second-half strategy. Q1 is the most hyped part of the brain, and the #9 can be more motivated than any of the other 4 Typess located there. As dominant C‘s and goal-driven Animates, #9‘s sustained passion is unparalleled. Couple this with the potential to get a 5th Super Bowl ring, Brady had mega-amped motivation as the game drew to a close. And fortunately for him, he had ALL his fellow teammates excelling in their individual play, as they had each been taught. Yes, the Pats team won the Super Bowl, not any individual players. For those who do not get this fact, football is not the same as golf or tennis, nor is basketball akin with only 5 players carrying the load. No, football requires a minimum of 23 players collectively fulfilling their roles (which includes the kicker).

Joe Montana (#5 FEIR) should not be considered the all-time great quarterback because he won 4 Super Bowls. Of course that won’t harm his resume, but the proper measurement for any QB is what he does with what he has around him. Unfortunately, few grasp this simple reality especially among the sports media. Additionally, what does a QB’s coaching staff do to develop him and all the other players, on both sides of the ball? Factor in, too, what is the coach’s philosophy, on both sides of the ball? How good a strategist, tactician, and play-caller is he?

What a joke it is to determine the top QB of all time based upon Super Bowl rings. Folks would do well to sequence reality and to strive for the patience and objectivity necessary for carefully weighing all these relevant factors.

Sticking with football, doesn’t it makes just as much sense, or more, to say who is the greatest NFL receiver of all time as well as the QB? A receiver is much more dependent on self to be successful than a quarterback. His speed, agility, hands, route running, cunning and toughness are some of the areas in which he needs to excel. Yet if he has a QB who can’t get him the ball, or a coach who cannot utilize his special giftedness, he may always dwell in mediocrity when he shouldn’t.

Suffice it to say, whenever someone claims so-and-so is the best QB based upon team success or rings, you know you are speaking with someone who’s looking only at the head of a pin.Yet perhaps they are open to grasping the larger view while putting all relevant matters into proper context.

And finally, a few words on Matty Ice becoming Matty Melt. Among many situations on Sunday, one especially memorable moment was in the 4th quarter, second down and 11 (and in easy field goal range that would seal the Falcons win). Matty Melt inexplicably took a QB sack the equivalent of a 7-step drop (and a yardage loss halfway to Dallas)! Yes, coaches Shanahan and Quinn could have better chosen a run play or a quick, short pass, but touted cerebral Ryan would know better than any in a classroom to throw the ball away; yet as the intense pressure overwhelmed him, he isolated in his function and tossed his vision to the wind (where #1‘s and #5 BTs excel). While this can be a definite plus in the classroom, on the sports field it often does not bode well for people.

Just two plays before this major mistake, Matty M made another horrible throwing decision but was bailed out by a nearly impossible Julio Jones (#1 FEAR) catch. Just in front of Jones was a defender with his sights fixated on Matt, and another DB closing fast. Nonetheless, the vision-impaired #13 QB threw it anyway but was saved by heaven no less. Matty also took an unnecessary sack and fumbled the ball, setting up a quick Pats TD. He once again lost his visual acuity, never seeing the edge rush while holding the ball too long. Mr. Ryan will have a long, difficult offseason. As a #13, he’ll replay the game in his mind endless times. If his anterior cingulate (the brain’s gear shifter) gets too hot, which occurs with many #13s, he’ll relive this fateful day even more. For his sake, we sure hope this doesn’t occur. From afar, he seems like a really good and thoughtful person.

We close with a lesson for all BT students. BTI’s upcoming book release and DVD/ internet video series will amplify this issue much further, yet for now, we offer this simple illustration. We have long taught that an empirical way to ascertain another’s neural health is to carefully study his or her face and its many on-and-off nuances. Urine, blood, or sputum samples can accurately reveal a person’s neurochemical condition, but few folks will be making those body substances available to you. Thus, you must rely on viewing their outward mannerisms, especially of the face. Particularly with big picture Conceptual BTs, notice their eyes where, when, and how they focus. Are they wide-eyed, sort of bug-eyed? Do their gazes jump around a lot, etc.,? The more their face strays from the normal person’s look, the more abstract they likely are either a result of extra C neurons or less-then-optimal neurotransmitter health.

This is of special significance in sports, where these sub-optimal cognitive conditions can be an athletic hindrance particularly in big-pressured situations. Though a person with these conditions can excel in less-stressful athletic situations, the Super Bowl and other sports finals will surely reveal an athlete’s neurochemical health. This is why a #5 QB (the BT with the most highly-celebrated QBs of all time and many without SB rings), with top neural health, can rise above all other BTs at this position (even acknowledged by the masses if he can make it to the final dance). It also reveals how BT’s #9 and #13 (and all others) are at a greater disadvantage placed in these same circumstances even if they have optimal neural health. First and foremost for a QB is spatial superiority, where #1s and #5s are scientifically the best. Though few #1s excel at QB, due to their emotional decision making, they make superior point guards in hoops since the game moves much faster and then they heavily rely on their dominant, Right brain vision unless they get mad. Their gross motor fluidity also dominates in hoops.

Watch the following Youtube video interviews with T. Brady and M. Ryan. See if you can notice their differing facial nuances. Which of the 2 appears to have a more relaxed face and eyes, etc.? Anyone who truly wants to be able to accurately read the various BTs in their public endeavors will need to develop this ability. The effort will be worth it, since it is far more useful that an American Express or VISA card; whatever you do, you do not want leave home or country without these enhanced BT analyzing abilities.

2/6/17 – The tragic death of Yordano Ventura

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 go out to their families, friends, teammates and fans throughout the United States and Latin America.

Ventura, a #13 FCIR, was only 25 years old. He was given the nickname Ace shortly after coming into the league with his 100 mph fastball “and an explosive attitude to match.”  He was “a fierce competitor who was always willing to challenge hitters inside, then deal with the ramifications when they decided to charge the mound.”

The #13 FCIRs continue to dominate the mound in professional baseball with their pliable, rubber-band arms, flexible motor-skills throughout their bodies, and highly strategic minds. Being fine-motor more than gross motor, they can nonetheless grip a baseball lightly like holding a baby bird, enabling them to have good velocity and significant movement. They are also the premier knuckleball pitchers!

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 democrats plan to fight tooth and nail to block Neil’s entry, though as one author writes, “Gorsuch has not given Democrats much to work with. He hasn’t ruled directly on cases involving abortion and gay rights, and he won Senate confirmation a decade ago on a voice vote with no opposition.”

Yes, all the democratic senators in 2006 supported Gorsuch for the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. Among many others, this also included Barack Obama (#13 FCIR), Joe Biden (#13 FCIR), Hillary Clinton (#15 FCIL), John Kerry (#13 FCIR), Dianne Feinstein (#15 FCIL), Patrick Leahy, Patty Murray, Dick Durbin, and even now Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer! Don’t you just love politics, especially now that Chuck and co. are trying to paint the squeaky-clean and upright Justice as out of touch and against the people?

There are now threats of a filibuster, but Trump and his Republicans could use the nuclear or constitutional option, which is a parliamentary procedure that allows the U.S. Senate to override a rule or precedent by a simple majority of 51 votes, instead of by a supermajority of 60 votes. The irony? It was #16 BCIL Harry Reid who spearheaded its implementation just a few years ago. “Reid and his Democrat colleagues changed the rules so that all that was needed was a simple majority of 51 Senators, coincidentally the number of senators Republicans now have.”

At the time, Reid stated, This is not about Democrats versus Republicans. This is about making Washington work regardless of who is in the White House or who controls the Senate. Yet also stated at the time were the haunting words of Alabama Senator Richard Shelby-, who said, Democrats won’t be in power in perpetuity. This is a mistake a big one for the long run. Maybe not for the short run. Short-term gains, but I think it changes the Senate tremendously in a bad way.”

Boy was he right!

Trump’s #15 “let’s get things done” train is continuing to chug along full speed ahead unlike any President in U.S. history, some are saying. No surprise here as we consider Trump two “Bs” … background and Brain Type!

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 easily detect. Think of Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning (#5 FEIR), and go and ask your friends (or anyone remotely familiar with the NFL) one simple question. “Which of the two would you consider to be an emotional, Animate “feeler,” and which would you consider an ice-in-veins, Inanimate “thinker”? To be sure, most of those given the question would say Tom Brady is the “feeler”, while Manning is the “thinker”. Fellow teammate Julian Edelman (#13 FCIRgave the perfect impersonation of Brady in our last article, changing his voice to a high pitch and acting emotional. This is simply because, yes, Tom is known for his emotions. Tom cries, Tom screams, Tom pouts, Tom swears, and Tom throws things (see our link or Google any of these words). This is what happens when a #9 FCAR loses their cool, falling head-long (or brain-long) into their Conceptual, Animate world of “unreality,” for lack of a better term.

We at BTI have researched the dysfunctional styles of each Brain Type for over 30 years, including countless criminal profiles to assist law enforcement (Unabomber, O.J. trial, etc.). Though #9s rarely engage the brutal crimes (like certain Inanimate BTs), they nonetheless can do some rather crazy things, especially in their melt-down moments. When this occurs, cerebrally, they leave their Pollyanna anterior Right brain locale and transition to the same-side posterior deep limbic system. Here lies the dreaded amygdalae, the most intensely emotional region of the brain (for good and bad).

Only two Brain Types make this visceral roller-coaster their permanent home, the #10 BCAR and #2 BEAR. Thus, since #9s and #10s are both Right brain Conceptuals, the #9 mimics the #10 when entering this super-sensitive enclave. But unlike the tempered-10 that lives here 24/7, the #9 emotes far more outwardly. Additionally, they cannot process the visceral vibes as can the typically mellow #10. Result? When the deep limbic exceeds its threshold, childlike behavior is guaranteed to follow as the touch with logic exits out the window. Primal tones accompany the oft-nonsensical speech, and bystanders typically seek cover.

All this to say that this neural activity does not produce the top QBs in big-pressure situations, especially when their offense scheme is breaking down (a rarity with Belichick’s Rolls Royce operation).

Meanwhile, one need only look at a Peyton Manning, or a Joe Montana, or a John Elway, and behold in their eyes that they are intense, “thinking’ individuals, despite their easy-going personas. So, which makes for a better QB especially in an unscripted, unplanned, and a truly big-pressure moment when a rabbit MUST be pulled from the hat? Is it an Animate, Right brain QB who sees the field with abstract, spatial emotion and feelings (and is more affected by hostile crowds, tough-minded coaches, etc.), or a dominant Empiricist with ultra-superior spatial Right brained logic. The answer is quite clear neuro-scientifically as well as practically speaking. Spatial, Inanimate logic far exceeds Conceptual, Animate feelings at the QB position. Thus, the scientific explanation why so many NFL #5 QBs are considered the greatest of all time, whereas only two number-10s have excelled (and both for separate reasons).

Let’s stop and admire a few things about Mr. Brady, however. Under pressure, the #9‘s motor-skills typically hold up better than any of the “Body Skill Birds.” When nervous, the EA‘s gross motors, or the CI‘s fine motors, will stiffen up more quickly than that of the CA‘s (especially Front brain #9s who don’t ruminate like #10s). Also, being Right brain dominant (the spatial hemisphere), Brady will see the field well, AS LONG as he remains relaxed. In fact, as a Q1, he can often see the open man and throw the accurate pass as well as anyone when he is on his game. However, when the big-time pressure hits, and they are called upon to make difficult passes (and see the entire field), the FCAR must bow to the #5 FEIR‘s superiority.

Fortunately for Tom, he is rarely called to do this by Mr. Belichick. Yes, watch any Patriots game and you will witness one craftily-planned short pass after another, with the occasional long-ball thrown to the open man. For nearly 2 decades Tom has been trained by the #15 Field-marshal, considered the top NFL coach ever, to quickly go through his progressions and throw the ball asap, unless his O-line is well protecting him. If they are, he can then pick daises while choosing among multiple, wide-open receivers running highly-strategic routes (and comebacks). With his in-sync and highly-coordinated gross and fine motors, he can then typically hit them right in the numbers.

Make no mistake, no NFL QB in decades if not ever could implement CEO Belichick’s offensive system as well as T. Brady. Not only is his BT arguably the most compliant and people-pleasing among top athletes, when lacking athleticism and speed, it relishes someone providing an organized, strategic system where the #9‘s brain borders ineptitude.

And let us not forget how everyone raves about how Belichick can take any player from the scrap heap, regardless of his past performances, and turn him into a renowned NFL performer. This is true. The #15 is the consummate CEO knowing how to develop people optimally while putting them in a system and position where they will not fail, but excel. Yet if Commander Belichick is able to do this with all non-QB positions, why do we not logically and factually carry this over to the QB position as well? Has he not gotten all his QBs to excel when Mr. Brady cannot play? Yes, he has, but as we all know, that does not mean they will excel when they leave his tutelage and system by going to another team. History has proven this true, too.

Irrefutably, #5s have been regarded as the best overall QBs in NFL history. The list is amazing how many of this lone BT prospered on the field like none others. (Off the field is another story; here many became known in ways their parents would not be proud.) Conversely, #9 NFL QBs have been rare. Their innate designs have not been optimal at this position. Instead, they are best suited for nearly every other position on the field especially receivers like Jerry Rice.

The two best #9 QBs, by far, have been Tom Brady and Drew Brees, whom we have written about for many, many years. Where the two have particularly excelled, cerebrally, is with innate neural genes, transmitters, and chemicals. Their superior neural health has separated them from most other #9s who’ve also attempted QB. Thanks to their ancestry, they’ve been passed robust genes that efficiently process vital neurochemicals such as dopamine, serotonin, GABA, and the like. Thus, these two QBs have been exceptional for maintaining their calm and vision under most pressure situations.

Immobile Brady has flourished in Belichick’s prolific and organized offensive system. Brees has also maximized his #9 skills to make very accurate throws, like Tom, yet highly mobile Drew can do this on the run as well regardless the offensive system. Yes, there have been other #9 QBs like Kordell Stewart and the now, Teddy Bridgewater (who’s yet to be proven), but the list is quite short for #9 QBs. Why? Simply stated: As Conceptual Animates (abstract feelers), they are not innately designed to excel at QB like the #5s and #13s, both Animate thinking BTs.

Remember, Tom Brady himself admitted that, had he been playing for any other team (or man), his career would have been drastically different.

Peter King: Do you ever wonder what would have happened if you had been drafted by Arizona?
Tom Brady: Yeah, I’d be on my third team by now.

And so, when headlines continue to tout the affable Mr. Brady as the best quarterback of all time (“No debate: Brady is best QB ever”), people should simply be shaking their heads. This is not golf. This is not tennis. Football is a multi-man sport, and Brady was placed in the ideal position for his Brain Type to succeed. Yet since some 80% of the sports media are innately non-contextual Right brainers (we’re not talking LB language center dominance), it’s no small wonder their non-contextual perceptions are as they are. All perceptions are amalgamated with Right brain-dominant males; carefully separating and categorizing events according to the most relevant facts is for the Left brain.

In any team sport, no athlete should be evaluated as the best until all relevant facts are carefully segregated in proper context with an unbiased attempt to make all things equal among the contestants. Only then does it make for a rational, contextual debate. And finally, are we talking about the best QB to operate within the guidelines of a strict, regimented system, or the innate river boat gambler who sees the whole field (even the pretty lady in section G, row 9, seat 3) like a hawk, throwing from any angle and any situation? Granted, today’s coaches want the compliant and big-picture QBs, not the throw-the-game-plan-in-the-trash gunslingers. Yet, when you can make the rare find of a #5 Manning, schooled by Archie and other competents from day one, then the Q1 FEIR is a most prized possession, though still a gambler when others aren’t carrying the load.

And please, sports fans, do not think we are haters of Terrific Tom. We love him and the amazing things he’s been able to accomplish over his stellar career. Yet as science (and sports) researchers, we continually attempt to understand why folks do what they do via DNA, neurons, biomechanics, and optometrics. Brain Typing enables us to grasp the inborn drivers of both physical and cognitive behavior, and now that it is confirmed that some two-thirds of human mind and body actions are not from nurture but instead nature, and DNA-derived (revealed in twin studies, etc.), we have no other option in our reporting. It isn’t an issue whom we like or dislike, it’s always how each BT is DNA-configured to perform, regardless the task.

The #5 BT, the FEIR, is inherently designed, scientifically, as the consummate QB. Yet as BT students know, other key issues can impede individual development, negating one’s upside potential. On the other hand, the #13 BT, the FCIR and the second-best designed QB now dominates this NFL position. What gives? Football has become consumed with stats, mechanics, systems, drills, and perhaps most importantly, whether a QB is goal-oriented, strategic, and driven daily (mentally and physically), all perfect for the #13 FCIR to flourish, and that they have!

Most starting quarterbacks in the league are #13s, including the talented Matt Ryan. To be sure, he and his Atlanta Falcons will give New England a run for their money, ESPECIALLY if they can get ahead early and put the squeeze on Mr. Brady’s emotive brain. But do not forget, both Brady and Ryan are dominant, Q1 Conceptuals. Seeing the big picture and possibilities is their most adept cognitive function. If either player gets flustered, their seeing what is will quickly go south. Hurried throws will then be directed to where they think (Ryan) or feel (Brady) the receiver should be, not in reality where he is. Here is where the #5 and #1 BTs exceed all other innate designs.

It will be a fun game to watch!

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 I know that this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair.”

When it comes to Hollywood, we know #5 FEIRs certainly like to blow things up (ala Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stalone, Clint Eastwood), but to hint at doing so literally, especially to the most important house and persons in America, is more than a little unprecedented. Former Republican House speaker Newt Gingrich (#15 FCIL) has even said Madonna ought to be arrested for making this statement to the large crowd gathered to hear her last week. Additionally, the FBI has also rightly said they are seriously looking into the matter particularly since it will inevitably incite others to think and act unlawfully. A clarification was certainly expected to come, and Madonna did just that on Instagram shortly thereafter, writing, “I am not a violent person. I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things – one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt.

Fellow aging FEIR singer Cher also hasn’t been shy about her feelings regarding Trump, calling Trump a “unbelievable narcissist,” and telling Maria Shriver (#15 FCIL) in a recent interview, I feel like I’m yelling fire, and no one is listening! I care about the country, and I know that the people that are following Trump, they care about the country, too. But I don’t think it’s the same country I care about.

If there’s one thing about #5s, they speak their minds, whether they’ve rationally processed their ideas or not!

And if there’s one thing about #15s, they get things done! More on that in a future article.

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 FCARand 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 milestone with Barney Fife for a QB (as long as Barney followed orders). Now, New England is headed for yet another Super Bowl as they defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday in easy fashion.

Chris Hogan (#13 FCIR) had a great game as the Patriots took a 17-9 lead at intermission after a well-crafted trick play known as a flea flicker. Brady handed the ball off to running back Dion Lewis (#6 BEIR), who ran forward before tossing the ball back to Brady, who lofted a long touchdown pass to the wide open Hogan in the end zone. Meanwhile, Ben Roethlisberger (#13 FCIR) was forced to gain yards in short chunks thanks to a tough Patriot defense (whose secondary led the NFL in fewest points allowed during the regular season).

It certainly didn’t help the Steelers to lose running back Le Veon Bell early in the game with a groin injury. Bell, a #1 FEAR, is considered to be “one of the best players in the NFL and losing him certainly affected this game.”

Wide receiver Julian Edelman (#13 FCIR) of the Patriots also had a good game, totaling 100 receiving yards along with Hogan. Edelman is a funny guy with a gift for imitating people. Check out the video below of him doing his impression of #9 Brady and #15 Belichick!

Belichick was quick to deflect the praise, saying, Great players. It’s all about the players. They work hard, they’re unselfish and they’re tough.”

Yes, a great coach and great players. It will be tough for the Atlanta Falcons to beat the Patriots in 2 weeks, though Peyton Manning (#5 FEIR) and his Denver Broncos certainly proved last year it can be done!

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.

Quarterback Matt Ryan (#13 FCIR) of the Falcons had a stellar game, throwing for 392 yards and four touchdowns while running for another fifth. “We just kept battling the entire four quarters,” said Ryan. “You never know how these (games) are going to shake out, you expect to come down to the last play or two … I’m just really excited about two weeks from now.” And how about that Julio Jones? A #1 FEAR, the all-pro receiver had the crowd going wild “with his hold-breaking, tackle-busting, 73-yard touchdown explosion in the third quarter of a 44-21 rout of the Green Bay Packers in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game.” Julio finished with nine catches for 180 yards and two TDs, and this only eight days after re-aggravating the sprained toe on his left foot.

Oh, and we can’t forget the very first touchdown of the game caught with one hand by Mohammad Sanu (#13 FCIR) as he was falling down. What a play!

Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (#13 FCIR) was understandably disappointed after the debilitating loss in which he sat out the 4th quarter. “We hurt ourselves with the missed field goal and another good drive down there and fumbled inside 10,” said Rodgers. “We had zero points in the first half and you’re not going to win many games like that.”

Clay Matthews of the Packers, one of the very few #5 FEIRs in the league, has recently suffered from a strained hamstring and didn’t seem his normal self on Sunday. It was questionable whether or not he would play at all.

And just for our readers, Falcon’s running back Tevin Coleman is a #9 FCAR, and running back Devonta Freeman is a #1 FEAR.

Now it’s time to bring on drill sergeant Bill Belichick (#15 FCIL) and his New England Patriots. Both Ryan and Julio will definitely need to be on top of their game to overcome the most disciplined and carefully-managed team in football.

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, and watch the video below to determine his inborn design. We’ll give the answer next week.

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 would definitely be between the #1 FEAR and the #9 FCARand this case it was a #9 who was the culprit.

So when coach Mike Tomlin (#13 FCIR) was giving a pep talk to his Steelers football team, even advising them to “keep a low profile” while another team member is heard saying, “Keep cool on social media. This is about us, nobody else,” it’s no big surprise that Antonio Brown was not only recording the event on his phone, but kept recording it all for nearly 20 minutes!  Typically NFL teams are often very protective of what goes on in the locker room, so “it’s surprising Brown chose to go live – and for that long.”  Nope, it’s not all the surprising, really.

Antonio Brown actions wouldn’t fly in the Patriot’s locker room, that’s for sure, according to fellow #9 Tom Brady (who certainly has a different persona based on nature and nurture). When asked about Brown’s social media post, Brady chuckled and said, “That’s against I think our team policy. I don’t think that would go over well with our coach.”  Again, no surprise here, knowing their head coach is drill sergeant Bill Belichick (#15 FCIL).

Check out the video. Brown smiles at the camera for minutes-on-end, and it is certainly a nice CA “Stork” smile, despite his lack of proper judgment. Sometimes it’s just hard to be mad at such a nice guy! (warning: there is language)
