Assess Your Ability to Think
Studies have confirmed that outstanding leaders think with a higher degree of skill than their less able counterparts. But surprisingly, research has shown that individuals who were never taught thinking skills are instead employing skills developed before the age of twelve. Thus, in an era of knowledge explosion, organizational performance accountability, and rapid change caused by technology, leaders and managers are trying to succeed using thinking patterns established when they were children.
Now in its second edition, the Yale Assessment of Thinking is a 69-item, self-scored test that will help you to determine your proficiencies in the three domains of thinking: reasoning, insight, and self-knowledge. Research studies have determined that these three areas are crucial to a person' s ability to solve problems, to reach decisions, and to think creatively.
This proven instrument will give you the information you need to become aware of your proficiency levels in each of these domains and, within them, your internal and external cognitive processes. Once you are cognizant of your thinking skills, you can take steps to significantly enhance your ability to think.
Who should use this instrument? The Yale Assessment of Thinking has been created for leaders of all types of organizations (business, education, nonprofit, and government), consultants, managers, students, academics, and any individual interested in better understanding their thinking strengths.
