Limbic Insights™ Executive Profiling

Neuroscientific Personality Profiling
Limbic Insights™ profiling provides a standardised and validated instrument to identify neuro-psychological personalities. It provides understanding of the real drivers of behaviour, decision making and implications to all aspects of life.

The human personality is primarily based on the three major emotion systems “Balance”, “Stimulant” and “Dominance”. All forces exist in everyone – but with a varying degree of prominence.

There are 7 Limbic Insights™ Types, each representing a typical characteristic of the three emotion systems.

Harmoniser, Open-Minded, Hedonist, Adventurer, Performer, Disciplined, Traditionalist.

Your Limbic Insights™ type will determine what emotions you are influenced by linking to all aspects of your life including social interactions, hobbies, style and motivations.

Brain & Behaviour

Since dopamine and testosterone collaborate in the brain of the Adventurer, this type often acts like an experience-driven warrior. Thus, their left hemisphere is more activated. Pleasure is complemented with a combative note. As an adventure-oriented born fighter, they want to assert themselves. Hindering conventions are ignored without exception.

Goals and drivers

The adventurer is driven by a challenge and achievement. They are motivated to outperform others and enjoy competing against targets, others and their own.

Their main driver is to succeed and win.

Barriers and dislikes

The adventurer will not respond well to highly structured and organised environment as it constrains their natural drive for adventure and creativity.

They will be demotivated when they cannot see progress quickly or if a task will take too long to complete.
