The world’s leading thinking styles assessment tool, the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument® (HBDI®) is the assessment at the core of Herrmann International’s Whole Brain Thinking® approach. Developed in the 1970s by Ned Herrmann, while a manager at General Electric, more than thirty years of research and innovation stand behind the validity of the HBDI®.
The 120-question HBDI® assessment evaluates and describes the degree of preference individuals have for thinking in each of the four brain quadrants, as depicted by the Herrmann Whole Brain Model®. Sonja Vlaar is a certified HBDI® Practitioner since 2016.
Being the basis of Whole Brain Thinking® the HBDI® teaches you how to communicate with those who think the same as you and those who think differently. Once an individual understands his or her thinking style preferences, the door is open to improved teamwork, leadership, customer relationships, creativity, problem solving, and other aspects of personal and interpersonal development.
