The Theory of Emergentics combines the early understanding of psychology (BF Skinner and Watson) with today's most recent findings. Dr. Browning's work in Emergentics suggests a combination of our genetic tendencies to think a certain way (nature) with our ways that have been modified due to socialization (nurtured). Early into this well written textbook, you will better understand that individuals have inborn traits to act and think in certain ways and that these traits are modified by their surroundings. It is the modification of genetic traits with life experience that define and provide recognizable personality profiles.
Emergentics is profiling using four Thinking Attributes - Analytical Thinking, Structural Thinking, Social Thinking and Conceptual Thinking. These thinking attributes are more defined with the measurement of three Behavioral Attributes - Expressiveness, Assertiveness, and Flexibility. This textbook helps you to clearly understand these seven attributes and how they interact together and define a personality profile.
If you are a administrator, team leader, HR professional or educator, there are many professional groups that offer seminars in Emergentics. Also, Dr. Browning offers (for a charge) an online questionnaire for those who would like their own profile. [...]
I have had the privilege of working with Geil Browning, and she is beyond extraordinary. Geil has the highest academic standards, so everthing in this book has been analyzed, cross-checked, and verified. However, what drives the book is Geil's wisdom, empathy, and passion to share what she has learned over a lifetime of scientific study, corporate consulting, and human observation.
EMERGENETICS is all about understanding yourself and other people, so this book will help you become not only a better business leader, but also a better human being. It really does give you the keys you need to decipher others and better appreciate your own strengths.
EMERGENETICS is based on seven personality attributes. Each thinking or behavioral attribute is given a spectrum, so your unique personality is a function of where you place yourself on all seven spectrums. You can access all seven traits to different degrees when you have to, but you'll keep coming back to your natural "set point" for each attribute. You can use this book to determine your thinking and behavioral attributes in a general way, or you can go to [...] and fill out a full questionnaire to get a complete, individualized Emergenetics Profile (for a fee).
EMERGENETICS explains how the seven attributes correlate with the latest brain research. As Geil goes along explaining her life's work, her subjects include things like neuropeptide research, the enteric nervous system, brain fitness, gender differences, guidelines for communicating with people who aren't like you, and getting the most of of your colleagues and employees. This is a "business" book with something for everyone.
Geil Browning is the real deal.
One of the cool things is that Dr. Browning eats her own dog food in that she applies what she is preaching in the way she wrote the book. For the analytical, there are explanations of brain activity and the science behind her findings. For the social, throughout the book, she explains how emergenetics can be beneficial to personal relationships. For the conceptual, there are colorful pictures of the different attributes that give readers the big picture and a quick glimpse of what emergenetics is about.
Another thing that I liked about the book was that I learned a good amount of information about the brain and how it works that I did not know before. The quotes sprinkled throughout the book were also interesting and timely.
This is another book to add to my aspiring WE (Whole Emergenetics) organizations' libraries. :)
The book will be helpful to employers who need to build teams with a full contingent of strengths. It will help employees who want to maximize their personal strengths in the context of what their jobs and bosses require or find a different job that better suits their own thought and behavioral preferences better. It will also help couples understand more about how their partner thinks and behaves. My advice is to first complete the simple online questionnaire at [...] get your profile (well worth the cost) and then read the book. I STRONGLY recommend this book.
