Discovering how people think
MindSonar measures how people think (measuring 13 thinking style elements) and what they find important (their Graves drives). This always done for a certain context. MindSonar gives you a clear picture of someone's mindset in that context. When you understand somebody's mindset, you can adapt your communication to better reach them, help them change, match them to the right job, train them more easily, coach them, identify their strengths and weaknesses, and so on. And you can do this not only with individuals, but also with teams and organisations.
Thinking, Feeling, Doing, Results
Mindset determines feelings and actions. Your mindset shapes how you evaluate things, what you notice and what you miss. And that, in turn, determines your results. Basically, wherever people and results are important, MindSonar is a great tool.

MindSonar is used all over the world, mostly by consultants, coaches, team builders, HR-professionals and organisational developers. They use MindSonar in all kinds of organisations varying from olympic sports teams to corporations.
Why is MindSonar the 'New Profiling'?
MindSonar is not a personality test. Older tests like MBTI or DISK tell people what they are like, always and everywhere. This absolutely has its merits (it offers the certainty of 'knowing who you are') but it also has its downside. The concept of personality tends to encourage people to lock themselves up in boxes. MindSonar assumes that you think differently in different situations. Our tag line is: Because you are so much more...

“Those who have tried to develop instruments have based them on what people think, do or believe, which is not the proper base for assessment devices. They should be based not on what the person thinks but how he thinks”.
