What is MindSonar


MindSonar is Different

A new PSYCHOLOGICAL TOOL for a new world

MindSonar is a new type of psychological measurement as it is completely contextualised.

It does not attempt to define who you are, or try to label you.

We often think differently when we are in different situations and this can alter the way we respond and interact.

MindSonar is a psychological system that measures thinking styles and values using Metaprograms and Graves Drives Values.

MindSonar Psychometrics helps to get to the heart of your thinking, helping you understand yourselves and others better.

Discovering how people think

 How useful would it be to have a clear picture of someone's mindset?

When you understand somebody's mindset, you can adapt your communication style.

Helping them change, match them to the right role, train them more easily, coach them, identify their strengths and blind spots, etc.

We do this not only with individuals but also with teams and organisations.

Metaprograms and Graves Drives

Thinking styles and Values

Metaprograms are the building blocks of how people think.

Someone’s thinking style is made up of a combination of Metaprograms, making up a unique personal system.

Graves Drives describe what they find important, their values or criteria that they measure others by or themselves by.

Their Metaprograms determine their behaviour and their emotions in a given situation.

A different kind of test

This is not a personality test. Personality tests will tell you what you are like as a person; always and under any circumstances. Many people feel limited and ‘put in a box’ by these kinds of tests.

Worse some people will limit their success when labelled, using it as a crutch or excuse.

MindSonar measures how you think in a specific situation. We know that we think differently in different situations and this governs the way we act and react.

MindSonar does not assume that any thinking style is good or bad. Every thinking style has its time and place where it can be helpful.

Where does the name ‘MindSonar’ come from?

MindSonar® Etymology

The term ‘MindSonar’ uses sonar technology as an analogy.

A Sonar allows us to detect objects that cannot be seen by observing the surface of the water.

Like a ship's sonar, it requires an expert to understand the exact nature of those objects and to navigate through potential hazards.
