What is a Brain Talents Profile?
Each of us has strengths and talents we come by naturally or have cultivated over time. The 18 "Brain Apps" describe unique, powerful capabilities to create performance and positive change. Using the metaphor that the brain is like a smart phone and contains many useful "apps," this assessment produces a list of your brain's most prominent talents. These include talents such as connection, data mining, design, problem solving, critical thinking, emotional insight and collaboration. www.6seconds.org/brain
