What is Emergenetics®?
Emergenetics® means "what emerges from your genetics". Behaviors emerge from our life experiences and are driven by the genetics of our heritage. It reflects the fact that we all have unique talents, some of which are learned and others inborn. Emergenetics® concepts are based on recent brain research. Formulated by Geil Browning, Ph.D. and Wendell Williams, Ph.D. in 1991, the Emergenetics® Profile is built on years of work focused on personality and the brain, including doctoral research at the University of Nebraska, post-doctoral research at Harvard University, and industry research and testing. It focuses on individual strengths and contributions.
When you take a profile using Emergenetics®, you will be able to look at your 4 thinking attributes that compose a left- and right-brain concept and 3 behavioural attributes. The interplay between thinking and behavior is integral to truly understanding yourself. The profile is a unique tool that provides a clear window into the way we think and behave. Your profile is presented graphically: it is colourful which makes it very easy to understand and remember.
