Attendees of Dario Nardi’s “Neuroscience of Personality Certification Workshop” will present on what they learned about the brain and type.  In Dario’s words, “The neuroscience evidence suggests that type is meaningful and points to genuine variations in how we use our brains.”


Participants will learn more about:


  • How we use our neocortex (outer layer of the brain) according to our type, personal background, and experience.

  • Examples of what people who identify with the same type have in common and examples of how different life experiences change the cognitive skills we use.

  • What creates a state of flow for an individual.

  • Ways to build cognitive skills in areas of your non-preferred type preferences.

  • What is a brain map and what can it show us.
