One of the values of The Counseling Place at Lone Tree is to maintain progressive strategies to accomplish the self growth that our clients seek.   We are excited to introduce the Emergenetics Profile to help our clients gain greater understanding of how their brain thinks and their behavioral preferences. With his knowledge individuals, teams, corporations, couples, families and children (ages 9-18) can strengthen their understanding of themselves, how/why they do things, how they learn, what their thinking and behavioral preferences are, and so on.  I like this tool because it is based on the genetics of who you are and learning this can be an exercise that is very grounding.

This profile provides the percentages of how much of each thinking attribute you have in your brain:

1. Analytical (clear thinking, logical problem solver, rational, data driven, and learn by mental analysis)

2. Structural (practical thinking, likes guidelines, cautious of new ideas, predictable, learns by doing)

3. Conceptual (imaginative, intuitive about ideas, visionary, enjoys the unusual, learns by experimenting)

4. Social (relational, intuitive about people, socially aware, empathetic, learns from others)

The Emergenetics Profile also explains how we prefer to behave on a spectrum:

1. Expressiveness (quiet, introspective, reserved, talkative, gregarious)

2 Assertiveness (peacemaking, easygoing, competitive, forceful, driving)

3. Flexibility (focused, firm, adaptable, accomodating, welcomes change)

How can Emergentics Profiles help:

Individuals.  Learn how your brain thinks and how you prefer to behave. This will help empower you in your interactions with others, learning, relating, decision-making, etc.  By understanding your thinking and behavioral attributes, you can learn how to intertwine them at times when you need to access other areas that are not your preference.  This will be explained to you when you debrief about your profile.

Couples.  Plain and simple, how often do you look at your partner and wonder “what are they thinking?”  We tend to marry people who think/behave differently than we do, at the same time we can become hurt by how they do things.  The more you can understand your partner’s thinking and behavioral attributes, the happier you will be in your partnership.  This testing has been groundbreaking for the couples who have used it in my practice.

Teams/Corporations.  At work, how often do you try to communicate with someone who you just can’t seem to form a connection?  This can become very frustrating as you may have a deadline to meet or a problem to solve.  By understanding how your teammates think and behave, and they understand you, the stronger the team you will have.  Emergenetics Seminars help empower, build morale, and efficiency in companies.

Children/Teens (9-18).  Do you have a child who seems to struggle in their learning or perhaps connecting with other kids?  Most of our schools are set up for the analytical and structural parts of our brain, but what if your child’s thinking preference is conceptual and/or social?  This can cause struggle in their school and learning experience.  By understanding early how your child thinks and their natural behavioral preferences, they will have greater abilities to learn, get their needs met and excel in many environments.
