Why is the BTSA Different?
Why is the BTSA Different The Benziger Model and BTSA are quite possibly the best tool available for understanding, measuring and making decisions about how a person thinks.
No other model is as comprehensive. No other assessment results are as helpful in decision-making. Longtime (eg. 10-20 years) users of the MBTI, Disc/Performax and Wilson Learning have reported greater satisfaction and success with their clients using the BTSA. Corporate HR executives refer to the BTSA as a “breath of fresh air”.

The model:

  • Grounds each profile numerically for greater specificity.

  • Spotlights the unique contribution each function makes to life, based on neurophysiological insights on functional speicalization.

    • Frontal Left (Thinking), identified as setting goals, evaluating current reality and making a decision as to how to respond, contributes Direction and Structure.

    • Posterior Convexity Left (Sensing), identified as excelling at the highly detailed, sequenced, physical tasks, contributes Productive Foundations.

    • Posterior Convexity Right (Feeling), identified as naturally excelling at building connection and harmony, contributes Peaceful Foundations.

    • Frontal Right (Intuition), is identified as naturally excelling at creative imaginative tasks, contributes the Capacity for Adaption, or Falsification of Type.

  • Uses value-free labels which identify the region of the brain which appears to be responsible for each function, making it easier for people to see all four functions as equal.

  • Reveals the extent to which they have developed their auxiliaries and weakness.

  • Structures explorative discussion and maximizes insight by identifying changes or shifts in how the individual is using his brain.

  • Encourages respondent to explore what the cost of adaption, or Falsification of Type, has been in his life, to build his awareness and life-management skills.
