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.

11/18 – Christie Brinkley is too hard on herself

An #11 FCAL we haven’t featured on the blog for quite sometime now is Christie Brinkley. In a recent article, she discussed something that many (or nearly all) #11 females struggle with, and that is the desire to be perfect. I think I was 35, and aware of a little pooch on my stomach. We’re so hard on ourselves! I think the way you look is tied into how you feel. The kind of true beauty I hope my readers are looking for is a combination of healthy living and good deeds. The book she’s referring to is her latest, and is titled, “Timeless Beauty: Over 100 Tips, Secrets & Shortcuts to Looking & Feeling Great.

From Bo Derek to Cindy Crawford to Brook Shields to Annette Funicello to Faith Hill, some #11 females are just so strikingly similar in looks and behavior it’s almost scary (though not surprising since they share the same motor and cognitive brain regions). Brinkley, in her quest for beauty, has had liposuction, which she admits is “kinda scary.”  She’s also had laser treatments, fillers, and one case of a “disastrous” bout of Botox a few years ago. It made me look like I was punched in the eye, she says. I couldn’t move my forehead. I had to wear hats! She adds, “Botox worked wonders with smoothing out the wrinkles on her neck.”

In typical FCAL “principled” fashion, Christie became a vegetarian at the age of 14 after reading about slaughterhouses, though she admits that she still has lapses here and there (also typical #11 to be lax at times). She grew up admiring Grace Kelly’s simple, classic look, who also happened to be another #11 FCAL.

Imperfections are ok, and growing older is ok. This is something all of us, and yes, #11 females in particular, need to remember. As #11 Audrey Hepburn once said, “The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.

11/16 – Tom Brady is better than Peyton Manning at this

Hey BTInsiders! Over the past decade (and likely NFL history), Peyton Manning (#5 FEIR) has been the consummate QB. Breaking down each crucial QB quality, mind and body (including vision), no one stacks with PM. In his prime, he was amazing to behold. Unfortunately, he didn’t have the best team, nor coach, to assist him as 11 angry adversaries ran him down each weekend. His 50-plus squad members were often inferior, especially to the better teams.

Unfortunately, Father-time is now overcoming Manning, as he attempts a final hurrah in Denver. Even today we hear that his season could be over, with another physical malady topped upon his always-concerning spinal frailties. But the season goes on, zealously embraced by the addicted male masses now hooked into sports betting. NFL interest has never been higher, a result of fantasy leagues.

Peyton’s media nemesis, #9 FCAR Tom Brady, is having the opposite results, a stellar year and is in the conversation of League MVP. In many ways, this has been Tom’s best. Never has he been more QB efficient, thanks to the NFL’s best coach (and likely all-time), #15 FCIL Fieldmarshall Bill Belichick. Commandant Bill incomprehensively continues to annually perfect his system even further, getting stellar performances from each and every Patriot (even if signed off the street just days ago!). How is this possible you may ask? Well, Bill is the master strategist, not only accessing sufficiently his introspective #16 Q4 area each week, but resurfacing come Sunday to his dominant and super-structured, logical Q3 site. None of his competitors can handle his attention to detail, and enforcement. You have a weakness;  he’ll expose it, guaranteed. In addition, Big Bill is known for showing any Patriot player the door at the drop of a hat especially over a mental mistake, much less, heaven forbid, insubordination of any kind (even a dour look).

So without his numerous physical and coaching advantages, where does Brady outperform Manning. Not in seeing the football field. Not in calling plays and making logical split-second decisions. Nope. Rather, Tom Brady is better at calling out multi-billion dollar companies who make a living off of poisoning our kids!

Tom Brady’s interview with a Massachusetts radio station last week has gone viral, and here’s what he said.  I think we’ve been lied to by a lot of food companies over the years, by a lot of beverage companies over the years. But we still [believe] it… We believe that Frosted Flakes is a food… You’ll probably go out and drink Coca-Cola and think ‘Oh yeah, that’s no problem.’ Why? Because they pay lots of money for advertisements to think that you should drink Coca-Cola for a living… I totally disagree with that. And when people do that, I think that’s quackery. And the fact that they can sell that to kids? I mean, that’s poison for kids… When you go to the Super Bowl, who are the sponsors? That’s the education that we get. That’s what we get brainwashed to believe; that all these things are just normal food groups, and this is what you should eat.”

As noted by the Organic Consumers Association, “Brady may have just done more good for kids, and more damage to Big Food, than we could accomplish in months.”

Indeed, the message is getting out more and more. This year, Coca-Cola “reported a five percent drop in revenue for the third quarter, and over the past six months, Kellogg insiders have sold more than 60 percent of their shares in the company, signaling that Kellogg’s stock prices may soon go into freefall.”

In recent years, Brady has gone more holistic in his approach to healing and prevention. “Our approach to medicine is, let’s wait until you get sick. Wait until you get hurt, and then we’ll treat you. Well, how about trying to find ways to prevent that from even happening? I think it’s a much better approach to medicine… Now you guys may think I’m full of crap, but I’m the proof, what you see on the field.”

Is there more to Tom’s words than the obvious? Could Father Time be overcoming Manning faster than Terrific Tom, due to their individual health practices? In addition, Brady’s comments are surprising and not surprising at the same time. Get a #9 FCAR passionate about something and they will energetically lead the way, ala the Pied Piper, with an exuberant crowd following behind them. At the same time, they want to be loved and appreciated by all, avoiding too much controversy if they can help it. As such, Brady is likely more vocal about his beliefs with those close to him, while tempering his tongue when the media’s around. If a #9 does or says something stupid, it most often comes off the cuff, reminiscent of Kanye West and his childish antics.

Meanwhile, Peyton Manning still promotes Papa Johns. Although a pizza may not be as destructive for you as a few Cokes, as noted by health company Life Extension, a single pizza can put you 6,825 ku “in the hole,”  regarding AGEs. These  advanced glycation end products have been proven recently to be quite inflammatory and toxic to humans. Couple this with the gluten-ridden crust, questionable food toppings rendering digestion haywire among other things and maybe Peyton Manning’s problems are more physiological related than structural, or skeletal!

Good job, Tom! In this regard, you’re better than Peyton Manning!

11/13 – What do royalty and NFL star Greg Hardy have in common?

What do Princess Diana and NFL star Greg Hardy have in common? One is a woman, and the other is a man. One is white, and the other black. One was a kind, caring, gentle individual, and the other is a hard-hitting defensive lineman with a bad temper. Yep, they’re about as different as two people can get. At the same time, they’re more similar than you might imagine. Our BTInsiders probably know where we’re going with this, and believe us when we tell you it was perhaps as much a shock for us to find out as it will be for you now reading this. Both are the same Brain Type. Both are #3 FEALs, believe it or not.

As you adjust to the shock, consider how the high-energy #3 loves to play team defense, regardless the sport. Even in life, they are vigilant to always defend the institution, including the family. On the basketball court, it’s not too difficult to view them utilizing their body strength and balance. On the football field, Hardy does the same thing, keeping the enemy at bay with his dominant Animate emotion, which can include aggression especially when testosterone (or certain ingested substances) is high. All to say, Hardy plays the roll of a bad boy, but compared to the #5 FEIR or #6 BEIR, he ain’t no bad boy. Instead, he usually lets his mouth do the talking (ala Rasheed Wallace). In recent times he’s “made headlines when he commented on Tom Brady’s wife” and “also caused a stir with an inappropriate tweet about the Sept. 11 attacks during this year’s draft.”

Yet, in 2014, a police report was filed by a woman who “describes a night of drinking and doing cocaine at several bars before returning to Hardy’s apartment with the player, who snapped at some point. When the woman tried to defend herself, Hardy allegedly beat her, threw her into a bathtub and then slammed her onto the couch.”  Photos were recently released showing horrible bruises all over the body of the young woman. Hardy was arrested, and last year convicted of assault in a bench trial, but the charges were dismissed on appeal.

All to say, yes, even the friendly #3 can turn violent (as can all other BTs), though that violence would rarely be premeditated. Instead, Hardy “snapped,” and after a of night drinking on the town, he clearly was acting crazily “in-the-moment.”  In a real sense, he himself was afterwards probably shocked at what he did, though the deed is still obviously nearly unforgivable. In the eyes of one famous quarterback, however, it’s not nearly unforgivable, but simply unforgivable. We know what he did, said Roger Staubach (#15 FCILrecently. I’ve got a wife and four daughters and I’ve got 12 granddaughters. I would go ballistic if anybody touched any of our daughters or granddaughters in a harmful way. I’m not that forgiving for anybody that commits domestic violence.

Another rare “defensive” FEAL we know of in football history was Sean Jones, who found success at defensive-end playing for the Los Angeles Raiders, Houston Oilers, and the Green Bay Packers. He even went to the Pro Bowl after the 1993 season. Sean’s off-field behavior was typical #3, not Hardy’s aberration.

In the end, the question is, will Greg Hardy find himself in a similar situation again? He easily could, if he doesn’t develop a new value system. Still, as Left brain dominant, he will be more apt to think twice, not pulling the trigger so quickly (assuming his brain isn’t inebriated with alcohol). Unless you really get a lot of help, you just don’t overcome it, again says Staubach. You’ve got to get help. It’s not just, Hey, I did this, it won’t happen again. It happens again. . . . It’s a worrisome deal when someone hits a woman. Hopefully that someone is getting help to never do it again.

Though the Hardy debacle has been utterly detestable, it can provide us all a needed probing of our individual values and ethics, and an excellent test of our BT skills and knowledge.

11/12 – Greg Hardy and figuring out his inborn Brain Type

We now pick up again from our last article, where we asked everyone the “million dollar question” regarding the NFL’s most current controversial figure, Greg Hardy. What is his Brain Type? As we already mentioned, his Brain Type is likely not what you think it is, though after watching the 4 videos we provided, the trained eye should have picked up on a few nuances that reveal his unique inborn design. When we say “unique,” we really do mean unique, both among the general population and especially in the National Football league.

Let’s focus on 2 categories:

1.  Mind
2.  Body

Regarding his mind, Hardy’s attitude and behavior since the incident occurred has not displayed much, if any, remorse or regret. As of last week when the photos of the abused young lady were released, and new public outrage occurred, he finally addressed the issue and wrote on Twitter, “Just had to say I express my regret [for] what happened in [the] past and I’m dedicated to being the best person and teammate that I can be. But mostly I am grateful [for] the opportunity to play in the NFL.” What? “Mostly I am grateful…”? Does such a statement not imply a greater passion for returning to football rather than for what he did and his promise to being a better person in the future? Again, back in October when Hardy was asked if he was remorseful, he replied, “I am sorry I couldn’t be there for my teammates.”

Ouch. Talk about avoiding unpleasant reality.

In Jon Niednagel’s new material (to be released soon), he describes a part of the brain that does not like criticism, especially about self. To be more specific, it is the Q3 (Front-Left) area. “Wait, are you saying Hardy is a Front, Left brainer?” Before we answer that question, let’s be reminded that there have not been many good Q3 athletes, especially as NHL linemen! They are indeed rare birds in the athletic, Right brain dominated world.

From the interviews we provide in our last article, what did you notice about Greg Hardy’s answers, his facial expressions, and other BT nuances? Does he act secure, or insecure to you? Does he appear like a typical rough-and-gruff prisoner on TV from San Quentin? Or, if you look more closely, does he appear to be a bit of a softer play-actor with a big mouth? Now that we’ve asked these questions, has any of this (including the interviews) changed your mind about his Brain Type?

Lastly, regarding his body, consider the position he plays, and how he plays it. What body group makes the best defensive lineman? The CA ‘Storks’, the CI ‘Owls’, the EI ‘Hawks’, or the EA ‘Doves’? In Hardy, do you see gross-motor skills, or fine motor skills? Of course to the untrained eye, what lineman doesn’t seem gross-motored (though many are not!)? You may rightfully ask, what else could a 300-pound helmeted behemoth resemble? But with further BT study, you can sharpen your senses to the degree of even differentiating NFL linemen typologically, and in pads no less! Moving on, do you see quick ‘Owl’ feet though top-heavy, or rather the big-muscle strides of a ‘Dove’? We understand, it’s not always easy to spot these differences, but with careful study, one body group should stick out to you more than the other.

All right. We’ll give you the answer in our next article, which will be released tomorrow. Feel free to Email Us again if you wish to change your answer (though only your original counts!).

11/10 – A million dollar question for you about the NFL’s Greg Hardy

We have a million dollar question for you. That is, the answer would be worth a million dollars to many owners in the NFL. Additionally, there’s even a financial incentive in it for you;  yet it’s less than 7 figures.

The question concerns defensive lineman Greg Hardy. For those of you out-of-the-know, he reportedly slammed and choked his girlfriend last year, bruising her badly and throwing her onto a sofa covered with assault rifles. Photos were recently released showing bruises all over the body of the young woman. Hardy was arrested, and last year convicted of assault in a bench trial, but the charges were later dismissed on appeal, after a reported pay off.

So, here is the question. Can you guess Hardy’s inborn Brain Type? (Yet please understand this does not implicate any one BT as being any more evil than another. We pose this distasteful issue for an opportune teaching time, since it illustrates both nature and nurture influences that only BT can explain. We are the lone ones to have the real story behind the story.) Continuing on, have you seen Hardy interviewed? Have you noticed not only his words, but body language and facial expressions? Also, have you watched how he plays on the field? Have you noticed his state of (lacking) contrition after the incident back in 2014, even up to the present? If not, you need to do so in order to train yourself to become a truly competent Brain Typist. Also, you might be surprised he may not possess the Brain Type you’re thinking right now.

Below are four videos of “The Kraken” for you to evaluate.


Now, here’s our offer. Those who guess his Brain Type correctly will receive a free month’s subscription to the BTInsider ($9.95 value). To submit your answer, simply EMAIL US HERE.

We will post the answer tomorrow, along with some explanation!

11/8 – Reluctant Paul Ryan is new House Speaker

He’s the new Speaker of the House, and the youngest to take the coveted position in over 150 years. Replacing embattled John Boehner (#7 FEIL), he is described as “cerebral,” and was reluctant to take the position because it would take time away from his family. His name is Paul Ryan, and we told you of his #15 FCIL Brain Type back when he was running alongside Mitt Romney (#15 FCIL) for Vice President.

Before we go on, it’s interesting to note that majority leaders in recent times have been primarily Left brain dominant, including Boehner, Nancy Pelosi (#15 FCIL), and Harry Reid (#16 BCIL). The position certainly requires the superior organizational skills of the Left brain, but like every other dimension of life, a healthy dose of cognitive balance is necessary for proper and ethical functioning. Congress has had its fill of logistic and strategic methods, but an infusion of truly democratic conciliation procedures and personalities are much needed. One needs the ability to carefully articulate matters in a way that brings both sides of the aisle together.

In stark contrast, Congress supreme leader in recent years but now deposed, impersonal and tyrannical Harry Reid, wielded his unbalanced fist perhaps more than any bicameral legislator in U.S. history. Though sharing Abraham Lincoln’s innate Brain Type, Harry’s nurturing values ventured elsewhere, with civility and freedom for all lost concepts. Congressional Speakership essentially requires the opposite approach.

Paul Ryan is a polished, well-spoken, highly articulate, conciliating, and competent Q3 politician, and it’s little wonder why he was chosen primarily by the Republicans.

“He’s liked on both sides of the aisle. I think he understands that … He talked about getting involvement of all the members, and not just a few members, “ said Rep. Randy Neugebauer of Texas. Yes, if there is one area in which a #15 is gifted, it’s delegating and getting everyone involved among those who are not slothful, but serious.

For years Paul Ryan been keen on balancing the budget, but already has been forced to raise the national borrowing ceiling and now must “pivot to a high-stakes debate over funding the government the following month.”  He must certainly work within his means, but conservatives are hoping and praying that he doesn’t capitulate as frequently as did sunlamp John Boehner during his tenure short term. Otherwise, his term may end prematurely.

11/3 – The embarrassing CNBC debate

The poor reviews are piling up, declaring “CNBC the biggest loser of the night.”  In one veteran staffer’s words, “Everyone feels pretty embarrassed.”

Indeed, after watching CNBC’s 2016 GOP Presidential Debate on Wednesday night turn into “The 2016 GOP vs. the media” debate, everyone should be feeling pretty embarrassed. “While debates are meant to include tough questions and contrast candidates’ visions and policies for the future of America, CNBC’s moderators engaged in a series of ‘gotcha’ questions, petty and mean-spirited in tone, and designed to embarrass our candidates,” wrote RNC Chairman Reince Priebus in an open letter to NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack on Friday, declaring that they are “suspending the partnership” because the CNBC debate had been conducted “in bad faith.”

From a Brain Type’s perspective, it was a tale of the good and the bad, involving a number of #13 FCIRs calling out other #13 FCIRs. “We need a change of format,” Ben Carson (#13 FCIR, among other things, also demonstrating a low-keyed, thoughtful persona) said during a press conference in Lakewood, Colorado. “Debates are supposed to be to ‘get to know the candidates,’ what is behind them. What it has turned into is a gotcha.”

Ted Cruz (#13 FCIR, among other things, also demonstrating an energetic, principled persona) was perhaps the night’s most vocal critic, condemning CNBC for “trying to instigate fights between the candidates while ignoring issues that mattered to voters.”

“The questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media,” Cruz went on to say. “This is not a cage match.”  The enthusiastic crowd roared with applause. “Ted Cruz’s focus group dials [hit] 98 with his attack on media bias,” pollster Frank Luntz wrote on Twitter. “That’s the highest score we’ve ever measured. EVER.”

Moderators Carl Quintanilla (#13)Becky Quick (#13), and John Harwood (#13) have since been scrambling to defend themselves. After all, when the opening question of the debate starts with,“What is your biggest weakness and what are you doing to address it?”, it’s hard to argue that you’re being unbiased and objective. Other questions included, “Are you a comic book villain?” – “Can you do math?” – “Why have your numbers fallen?”

The lone #15 FCIL, Donald Trump, wasn’t pleased either, telling moderator John Harwood, “By the way, I don’t like the way you phrased that question.”  The question (or accusatory statement) was,“Mr. Trump, you have done very well in this campaign so far by promising to build another wall and make another country pay for it, send 11 million people out of the country, cut taxes $10 trillion without increasing the deficit, and make Americans better off because your greatness will replace the stupidity and incompetence of others. Let’s be honest. Is this a comic book version of a presidential candidate?

Yes, it was all too ugly. Senator Cruz did a great job making fun of the situation, stating at one point, “The contrast with the Democratic debate, where every thought and question from the media was Which of you is more handsome and wise?

11/2 – Terri Irwin has no interest in dating

#11 FCAL women tend to be romantics. They are often fiercely loyal in their love as well, though as with any Brain Type, there are some exceptions (lest we forget Elizabeth Taylor). On their love list, family and children are nearly always at the top. Take Farrah Fawcett, who once said, “My number one goal is to love, support and be there for my son.”  Then there’s Audrey Hepburn, who put a halt to her career in order to spend more time with her children, stating, “I had to make a choice at one point in my life, of missing films or missing my children. It was a very easy decision to make because I missed my children so very much.”  Model Cindy Crawford said of motherhood, “I believe that at least 70 percent of parenting goes to the mother. In our house, I’m the one who knows about all the school stuff, helps with the homework, organizes the play dates, and remembers the birthday parties.”

At any rate, another #11 FCAL who has devoted herself to motherhood is Terri Irwin, and she was recently featured in an article, titled, “Terri Irwin hasn’t considered dating after husband’s death.”  In the article, Terri goes on to say, “I think I’ve had my happily ever after. I still feel immense love and loyalty to Steve. And I’ve got great kids, I’ve got a very full life, and while I’m lonely for Steve, I’m not a lonely person.”  Wow, it’s one thing to be loyal to a spouse in life, but quite another to feel loyalty after death! Terri’s love and loyalty really come as no surprise knowing her inborn #11 design, though admittedly it’s on a much higher scale than most. She is extremely close to her outgoing and boisterous daughter, Bindi (#13 FCIR), cheering her on in recent days as she appeared on “Dancing With The Stars.”

Besides a genuine #11 maternal affection and unbreakable loyalty for her troubled, pop-icon friend, Michael Jackson (#10 BCAR), an interesting side-note about the seemingly “loose” Elizabeth Taylor is that she claimed to be fiercely true to marriage and each husband she had. “I’ve only slept with men I’ve been married to. How many women can make that claim?” Indeed, not many, especially among high profile celebrities!

10/27 – The passing of Flip Saunders

He was a man Jon Niednagel got to know well during his tenure with the Minnesota Timberwolves over a decade ago, but sadly, yesterday, Flip Saunders (#13 FCIR) passed away from cancer. Saunders, who had become “one of the most powerful men in the NBA as coach, team president and part owner of the Minnesota Timberwolves,” died on Sunday at the young age of 60 from Hodgkin lymphoma. The Timberwolves had just started practice that morning when they got word of Saunders’ death, where it was then immediately stopped and a devastated Kevin Garnett (#9 FCAR) “left the floor, walked to the parking garage at the practice facility and sat down in the spot marked for Saunders.”  Garnett posted a picture of the moment on his Facebook page with the message “Forever in my heart …”

Flip Saunders was a strategic and intelligent coach, seeking every advantage. His last words to Jon Niednagel came at a 2014 NBA camp, posing Brain Type questions pertaining to a few prospects he might soon draft for his T-wolves. Though Niednagel was obligated by another team to keep this info sequestered, he always enjoyed conversing with the ever-vigilant Flip. (Perhaps JN’s rare nickname from birth, Flip, also made Saunders of special interest?) Saunders was described by many as “gregarious and outgoing,” quite true to his Brain Type. He would also “carry around autographed cards of himself to hand out to fans, and playfully give them to media members as well with a mischievous grin on his face.”

“Flip, you were one of a kind,” wrote Kevin Love (#6 BEIR) on Instagram. “Great basketball mind and even better human being.”

10/26 – What do Barkley, Prokhorov, and Jackson have in common?

What do Charles Barkley, Mikhail Prokhorov, and Phil Jackson have in common? “Wait,” you say. “Charles is a #1 FEAR, while Prokhorov and Jackson are #16 BCILs. What could they possibly have in common?”  Admittedly, not much, though what all three of these men do have in common is that they are not big fans of basketball analytics, the systematic computational analysis of data or statistics “I think analytics are becoming more and more refined throughout the league,” said Prokhorov recently during a question and answer session. “But I am not convinced you can calculate your way to victory. I do believe there are intangibles that no stat sheet will show you.”

Barkley, Prokhorov’s opposite Type, hasn’t taken as friendly an approach, stating that “analytics is crap” and that proponents of analytics are “a bunch of guys who ain’t never played the game [and] they never got the girls in high school… Analytics don’t work at all. It’s just some crap that people who were really smart made up to try to get in the game because they had no talent.”

Yes, Mikhail and Charles, there are intangibles that no stat sheet will show you. When it comes to success in any sport, Brain Type is the number 1 factor to consider, then physicality (athleticism), and then, perhaps, analytics. No one could have predicted the downfall of Ryan Leaf (#7 FEIL) before he came into the NFL. Based on his stats, he should have at least made for an above-average quarterback. However, with the knowledge of Brain Type, anyone (not just Jon Niednagel) could have accurately predicted he would never attain Joe Montana (#5 FEIRstardom (let alone total failure).

Yes, this is exactly what Brain Typing thrives on … finding the “diamond in the rough” athlete who has yet to prove himself and, with proper training and coaching, making them into a star (or valuable player), and thus turning their respective team into a serious contender. As one author puts it, “The most important factor in making the NBA Finals over the past four years was the very advanced and wholly replicable skill called ‘having LeBron James on your team.’

Would Coach Pop Herring have advanced Michael Jordan (#6 BEIR) to the high school varsity team in 1978 had he known MJ’s inborn #6 design? Odds are he would have.

How about an example closer to home? Seeing no chance for undeveloped Toby Bailey to even play his frosh year at UCLA, Coach Jim Harrick (#7 FEIL) finally consented in midseason (after weekly encouragements from Brain Types discoverer, Jon Niednagel). What happened? Against all odds, #6 Bailey went on to not only work his way into the starting lineup but he led the Bruins to the 95 NCAA National Championship title, even making the All-Tournament first team.

Why has analytics, sabermetrics, etc., become such a big deal in recent years? Many plausible explanations could be offered, but certainly one of the most plausible pertains to Brain Types. Yes, Brain Types. Which of the 16 inborn designs has the greatest difficulty analyzing objective reality, including pragmatic numbers? Thanks to the technology of modern neuroscience, we’ve been able to decipher that the #9 FCAR’s cerebral circuitry is least adept in this realm. Yet #9s rarely run major sports organizations, so what other BT, especially the dominating one that oversees the sports world, would be in great need for scrutinizing assistance regarding the Inanimate nuances of what is.

If you guessed the #13 FCIR, you are correct. Though they have precocious minds, often expanding the universe, their innate cerebral design is inept at Q4 activities. FCIRs are great with synthesis, not analysis (especially males). Linking everything known to man is their shtick, but putting it all into proper context and to pragmatic use, is not. So by crunching the numbers via analytics, all Right brainers, especially Conceptual Q1s, have a much better chance of grasping the world of Empirical minutia. Yet, most of these folks relying on the various forms of analytics place too much confidence in them, often to their own demise.

In conclusion, if any Brain Type were to be “big” on analytics, it would definitely be the #16 BCIL, who enjoys dissecting and categorizing complicated, competent information for the purpose of efficiency. Prokhorov has yet to be convinced, and while analytics may be of some help for teams searching for success, nothing comes close to the 21st century analytics of Brain Typing.
