My Hermann Whole Brain Model (HDBI)


Triple dominant profiles excel in blending analytical, organised, and interpersonal approaches, offering unique decision-making insights and enhancing team dynamics.

The triple dominant profile represents 34% of the database. Within that total, 2111, 1121 and 1112 are the most frequent, representing 81% of the triple dominant profiles. This group has access to a certain thinking flexibility that comes from the multi-dominant nature of their thinking process. This allows the individuals to move through their three dominant modes somewhat seamlessly, looking at all of
the perspectives before making a decision. Such multiple preferences also facilitate interaction with others. Due to the triple nature of their preferences, they are likely to share at least one preference with those with whom they interact.

On the other hand, this multiplicity of preference can slow down the decision-making process due to the need to really check out all the alternatives available. Another potential challenge may be the multitude of options these preferences
provide, as career decisions or education choices need to be made. Identifying the strongest preference among the three comes with time and a willingness to go with a lead quadrant long enough to be able to evaluate the experience effectively.
Often the opportunities that present themselves first are the ones pursued.

This is a triple dominant profile featuring two primaries in the Left mode, both Upper Left A and Lower Left B quadrants, and a third primary in Lower Right C. The secondary is in Upper Right D quadrant. Characteristics of this profile would be analytical, rational and quantitative processing of Upper Left A, with controlled, conservative, structured and organised processing modes of Lower Left B. Combined with this would be the interpersonal, emotional and spiritual aspects of Lower Right C. Distinctly secondary, but usually functional would be the integrative, creative and holistic characteristics of Upper Right D. This profile is relatively well balanced, yet clearly the descriptors of the Upper Right D quadrant are secondary.

Occupations that are typical of individuals with this profile include professionals and managers of a technical nature, such as engineering, chemistry, or manufacturing managers, and managers with a high administrative content to their work, such as hospital administrators and human resource executives. Work that is considered most satisfying would include accomplishing, analysing data, making things work, building things, establishing order, attending to details, working with people, being part of a team, and solving customer issues.

Most comfortable communication approaches may include:
Well articulated ideas presented in a logical format,
Step-by-step unfolding of the topic,
Explanation in writing,
Empathy for the listener.

The most natural problem solving strategies would include:
Value analysis,
Gathering facts,
A step-by-step process,
Time lines,
Team processes,
Asking for others' input.

To make a decision, a person with this profile may ask:
Do I have all the facts?
How will others be affected?
Will I be in control?
