One of the most intriguing parts of the HBDI feedback is how our behavior may change in times of stress. We often see the “light bulb” go off with the realization that behaviors we do not expect sometimes happen because we are hard wired to act that way.
It can help explain why people get confused with us because we send mixed signals. The good news is there are ways to manage it and you learn how to do that in your debrief session.
We have received requests for couple or pair HBDI assessment feedback. Paired analysis is often done with boss-subordinate or peer to peer relationships; couple analysis is for spouses or significant others to assess how their thinking styles affect their relationship and to take steps improve it.
When selecting pair or couple option, each of you receives an additional report outlining how your profiles interact, balance or counter-balance with one another. This insight can be the answer to why breakdowns in communication may be hindering progress in your relationship.
Do you have an interest in learning how your profile can help you? I have written a number of articles at Elephants at Work on the application of the HBDI with individuals and teams.
