NBI Thinking Styles

The Neethling Brain Instruments (NBI) is a series of instruments that have been developed based on left & right brain functions. NBI are used to determine one’s preferred thinking style, which gives an indication of how we communicate, act towards other people in different situations, do business, make decisions, solve problems, learn, teach etc.

Understanding your own preferred thinking style enables you to understand yourself and others better. Once you understand your own thinking style that determines the way you relate/ act towards others, you can better adapt your style to appropriately connect with others & meet them where they are, thereby enhancing the relationship.
