Notes on Behaviorism Profiles

Cognitive Typology is not a behavioral model. However, the effects of the core metabolic processes, when scaled up to a macro-level, will commonly lead to statistical trends in behavior among people. None of these behaviors are absolutely necessary to have for someone to possess a given cognitive process. And inversely, the exhibition of any specific behavior is not definitive evidence of a certain cognitive process. The infinite complexity of human nature, of society, culture and personal choice will make the complete prediction of any single person’s favored habits and traits an impossible task.

And indeed, there is no particular topic or content that is necessarily emergent from a cognitive process, since the very nature of this cognitive metabolism is that it allows for the infinite creation of ideas and opinions. However, without giving some tangible approximation of what effects result from these content-less algorithms, we are left with a model that lacks practical application to life.

Therefore, we rely on statistically significant emergent trends. We track the most common behavioral emergences across hundreds of samples, and aggregate those behavioral trends into profiles in order to paint a general sense of how a metabolic process comes to create macroscopic effects in people’s lives. The following behavioral profiles are created from these aggregations of statistical trends. Please bear in mind that nothing in them is prescriptive of a cognitive process, but descriptive of some of its most common effects.
