Just as the Earth isn’t flat, the brain isn’t only two dimensional. Ancient philosophers – Plato and Aristotle included – knew there are three faculties of the mind: cognitive, affective and conative.

Later ignored by modern academics, the conative faculty is the part of the brain driven by instincts. It is the one and only truly predictive aspect of human behavior. Ever wonder why some people don’t follow life-saving regimes, or why some students do their best by cramming the night before a test? It all comes down to your MO (modus operandi).

Founder Kathy Kolbe is the world’s leading expert on predicting human behavior. It’s taken four decades, plenty of rejection and persistence in the face of academic naysayers for her to gather the more than 1.5 million data points that prove human beings “are who they are.”

It’s time to stop wasting mental energy and money, and start revolutionizing wellness and learning programs. With Dynamynd’s proven methods we can collectively reduce stress, remove obstacles and improve quality of life for patients, providers, students and teachers.
