BOP (Brain Orientation Profile)
The BOP measures the brain orientation of the testee by using 100 items. There is no time restriction applicable and would take about 20 minutes to complete.
Research shows that people are born with a Left/Right Brain dominance and that can thus be classified as a genetic phenomenon. Brain dominance is not a rigid statistic nor is a person bound by the hemisphere (left/right side of brain) he/she is accustomed to using. Response to sensory input and external stimuli can change over time by changing your thinking patterns – you can learn to think using the opposite hemisphere!
The ‘left-brainers’ are typically the more rational, analytical, logical, structured, factual, detailed, scientific, numerical, serious and down to earth realistic and practical type who like order and are guided by proven principles.
The ‘right-brainers’ are typically the more creative, open-minded, flexible, unstructured, ‘free-floating’ – intuitive type who see the ‘big picture’ and is more emotional, imaginary, artistic and light-hearted (playful) in their orientation.
