In brief, the Cognitive Type (CT) research project is an investigation into what elements of a person’s psychology can be reliably predicted by the analysis of facial expressions, body mannerisms, voice tone and gesticulation styles. The discernment of psychology through these face/body expressions is called vultology, and in our research we have found roughly 110 […]Continue reading "What really is Cognitive Type?"
In this article we’ll discuss where exactly CT stands in relation to all other psychometric and typological systems, as well as how it approaches its methodology & research. The Problem of Psychometrics Psychometric systems select the categories they wish to highlight, build conceptual definitions for those categories, then sort people according to those definitions. Examples […]Continue reading "CT Methodology vs Jungian Typologies"
Before we begin this topic we must define “What is a mistype?” Cognitive Type and MBTI are two separate systems, and therefore the two typing systems may not always cross over, so that being a type in one may have no correlation to any given type in the other. We can rightly say that it’s […]Continue reading "Why MBTI Mistypes Everyone"
Recent advances in neuroscience are confirming hypotheses first posited by the early psychoanalysts of the 20th century (Freud, Jung, Adler) pertaining to how the aspect of our mind that we identify as the “self” or “I” plays only a minor role in the overall creation and direction of our brain functioning and thoughts/actions. Studies have […]Continue reading "Why we’re not the Best Judges of Ourselves"
We’ve all heard it said at some point in our lives “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”, but what does that truly mean? Are we to never infer anything about a person from their exterior? Is that a plausible suggestion to make? Should we deny ourselves of this source of information and depend only […]Continue reading "“Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover”"
Please Note! This article is outdated, as the 64 Subtypes system has been superseded by the psychoanalytical (1024) system. But this may still provide a good general overview of the transition pathway from MBTI to CT until a better guide is developed. Thank you. Welcome to Cognitive Type. The video above offers a brief overview […]Continue reading "Transitioning from MBTI to CT"
How intrinsic is type? How much of “you” are you born with and how much is shaped or created by the environment? More importantly, if you had been born in a different life, with a different environment, would your type have changed? Might your functions have shifted? Might their order be different? A recent pilot […]Continue reading "How Intrinsic Is Type?"
Are there really only 16 types of people in the world? Of course not. There are as many types of people as there are people (7.6 billion at present). But this opens up a discussion on the subject of how we use categorization. Why do we use categories, and how real are they really? The […]Continue reading "Are There Really Only 16 Types?"
