Everett Decision Systems only utilizes assessment instruments that have met the highest standards of psychometric discrimination, specifically validity and reliability studies. Validity in plain language means that the assessment measures what it is supposed to. Reliability is the consistency of your measurement, or the degree to which an instrument measures the same way each time it is used under the same condition with the same subjects. In short, it is the repeatability of the measurement. Characteristics of a good assessment is found here.
The Thinking Pattern ProfileTM is built on a methodology that directly measures actual talent. It measures competency quickly and easily and accurately. And it is quietly being used by some of the best companies to close the performance gap. It shows what a person pays attention to as they make decisions — and also what they don’t pay attention to. Therefore it provides a helpful indicator of the sources of a person’s strengths and vulnerabilities.
Based on the work of Dr. Robert S. Hartman and Wayne Carpenter, the Thinking Pattern ProfileTM measures one’s capacity to make judgments about the world and one’s self according to our personal level of understanding (Clarity) and how much importance we place on it (Attention/Bias). People who score well in Critical Thinking also rate high in analysis, problem solving skills, overall job knowledge and performance. Weakness in our judgment opens up the risk for poor decisions which can lead to poor performance. When we understand potential limitations and blind spots, we can intentionally account for them to make balanced, conscious decisions.
Our ability to think critically and make sound, balanced judgments occurs subconsciously; it is fascinating that our brain is making decisions before we even consciously make them! Before any action can take place, our thoughts are subject to different biases in our judgment and are affected by our behavioral style, Emotional Intelligence, training and skills practice, reasoning ability and more.
