This product includes a personalized analysis by a certified vultologist of your facial expressions, body mannerisms, voice tone and gesticulations. The report comes complete with the following items:
- Type + Development: You will be given a type designation + development levels at a resolution of 1 in 1024.
- PDF Signals Report: Your printable report will arrive to you by email with a PDF sheet that shows which of the 110 signals you display.
- Forum Portal: You will also receive access to our community portal where you can connect with others who display your same visual signals.
- Detailed Analysis (OPTIONAL): This is a $30 bonus option. If selected, your report will come with a detailed, multi-page analysis of why your type is what it is, making use of animated GIFs and screenshots from your video that specifically evidence the results in the report.
- 2 Videos, in different settings
- At least one video must be done in an interview format (live or online), with someone asking you questions. This is essential for the visibility of all signals. If you don’t have another person available, our Discord community is willing to help you make one. You can follow this link to get to our Discord Chat https://cognitivetype.com/discord-chat/ .
We will need two videos of you in different settings or times, to get a broader scope of your expressive profile. The videos should be between 5-10 minutes long. Have the camera capture you from the waist up with freedom of movement of your hands. The camera must also be positioned at eye-level. Lighting and quality is important: try to have clear lighting on your face and especially your eyes – and little or no makeup.
If you are using a phone, position it in the horizontal/landscape orientation, not vertically:
For the video, it’s best if your answers to questions are not premeditated, to capture the way in which you approach new information. To help with this, the following 10 questions are generated at random with each page view. Feel free to refresh the page anytime to get a new listing of unfamiliar questions.
- What do you think of yourself from 5 years back?
- Tell me about a time where you had a lot of fun
- Tell me about something you’ve achieved.
- What puts a smile on your face?
- What is your biggest goal in life?
- If you have an interviewer with you, discuss a mutual interest with them.
- What upsets you the most?
- What first world problem do you have?
- Have you ever thought of adopting?
- What’s one quality you dislike about yourself?
But most important, try to be as natural as possible! Being on camera can cause you to be unnaturally stiff. If you get through all the questions quickly and still haven’t relaxed, continue to talk freely about any topic you enjoy, until you’ve acclimated to the setting. This will ensure the most accurate reading.
You must be 18 years or older to submit your video for analysis.
