The sections above are previews of Jon Niednagel’s latest book series on how each area of life relates to each particular Brain Type.  For much further detail on a particular subject, be sure to check out Jon’s book on the respective topic, available upon release in the i-Store Learning Center.

The Stereotypical Particulars: Approximately 6 out of 10 sampled of each particular Brain Type will resemble the descriptions below, with approximately 4 out of 10 being atypical due to upbringing, environmental influences, etc.  These generalizations are not intended to be offensive to any particular Type; however, our aim is to equip you, the reader, with the appropriate distinctions necessary in assessing others.

Appearance: relaxed, untailored clothing (normally) yet may dress fashionably (even daringly) for the occasion, jewelry not uncommon on men, women are often slightly masculine or strong, flamboyant, body conscious, often well-built and in shape, muscular, hard look, aggressive, provocative, teasing, athletic, EI “hawk eyes”.

Personality: risk-taking, energetic yet in a stress-free way, engaging the world, free-spirit, usually athletic, speaks quickly and simply, not a conversationalist, may be a poor listener, self-centered, self-directed, egotistical, proud, exciting, impetuous, impulsive, may be foolhardy, reckless, hotheaded, cunning, street smart, opportunistic, often short tempered.

Athletic Characteristics: superior hand-eye coordination (fine motor positioning), strong upper body, tough-minded, aggressive, operates at high gear, moves quickly, not a planner, die-hard, powerful, “enforcer” mentality, thrill-seeking, venturesome, antagonistic, hardliner, deceptive, spontaneous, offensive-minded, often breaks the rules of the game just to break them, highly tactical.

These are two representative examples for this Brain Type.  Please note that these interviews are only provided as a sample of what someone with this design might be like.  They are not sufficient for training you how to accurately distinguish this Brain Type from others.  The ‘Brain Type Trainer’ video training program has a much more in-depth visual perspective and commentary for each Brain Type.  The ‘Brain Type Trainer’ is the optimal training tool for learning how to accurately evaluate each of the 16 inborn designs.  Visit the i-Store Learning Center for more information on how to order the Brain Type Trainer and other learning aids available from BT Enterprises.


One major facet that separates Brain Types from any prior understanding of human behavior and performance is the motor skills connection.  While these videos are provided to aid BTInsiders in visually identifying each Brain Type’s motor skills, they are only provided as samples of how each design might/can move (variations will result due to previous athletic training, nurture, and genetic variables).  They are not sufficient for training you how to accurately distinguish each Brain Type from another.  Videos posted, however, will reflect particular motor skill traits conducive with the individual’s inborn design, more or less.

When a Brain Type is mentioned in an i-Blog article, it is filed under the respective category.
