What Angela's Vote Tally Means:

A Vote Tally is shown for each psychological pattern, often called a personality pattern or type. The Vote is tallied based on the consistency of choices during the self-discovery activity process. These vote tallies make it easier to help Angela identify and verify her likely best-fit. Using the analogy of an election, now that the first round of voting is done, Angela heads to a run-off election.

The Vote Tally shows you the current predictions for Angela's likely best-fit psychological pattern.

  • The higher the Vote Tally, the more likely a psychological pattern is a good fit and the lower the Vote Tally, the less likely it is to be a good fit.
  • No assessment, test, or other self-discovery process will ever be perfect with 100% accuracy.


Each person is unique, so during the verification process we are only trying to find the psychological pattern that is as close as possible to accurately describing you. This means that while each psychological pattern near the beginning of the list is going to sound a lot like you, it will also have a few things that don’t fit you. The goal is to find the psychological pattern that feels to you like the “closest” fit. There will never be a "perfect" fit.

A best-fit and verification process helps solve many of the problems with the accuracy of any self-discovery process. A best-fit and verification process is not only a necessary requirement for the ethical use of many assessments – it is also a great way to help make sure any advice provided will be as accurate and as meaningful as possible. For our reports, we combine each person’s verified psychological likely best-fit with all the data we have on that individual with other psychological models to provide the most personalized reports and advice we can.

Bonus Points and Extra Gold Stars:
If you really want to understand yourself better and how you are different from other people then a great extra step you can take is to use the Verification bar to view the patterns with the lowest Vote Tally. Doing this gives you an opportunity to see how people really different from you see the world and feel about themselves. To paraphrase Roger Pearman "They are not crazy, they are just not you"!

Cognitive Super Power 04

Back to Table of Contents

This section describes your Superpower; your dominant, "go to" behavior that is so natural, fast, and easy to access, you may not even know you have or are using it.

The “superpower” described here is a distinctive personality quality that comes naturally to the person who has it, whereas it would take others a great deal of concerted effort to access the same sort of skill.  This Cognitive Super Power is a reflection of how their specific personality type can be leveraged when working with others to make a large contribution to the group.  This is based on Jungian dominant function.  It represents the preferred and typically strongest function of the individual at their best.

What are your core psychological needs, values and talents? What needs are so essential to your existence that you will go to great lengths to get them met? Your core psychological needs and values have been with you from the beginning as well as the talents that help you scratch the itch that the needs create. This is the heart of who we are, so you will learn more about the essence of the roots of your personality as well as of those around you. This will open up a deep understanding of different perspectives, different talent agendas, and sources of conflict and stress. The Essential Motivators aspect of the Berens CORE™ lenses is grounded in the patterns David Keirsey called temperament and that were further differentiated and refined by Linda Berens.
