    This is such an interesting match up. I took your 360 assessment at yesterday. It is awesome and gave me a lot more understanding of these profiles and the thinking behind them. Thanks very much for making this all available.

  2. Marianne, our findings confirm your observation.

    Very interesting post. We’ve been using your optimal thinking assessment for 5 years now and I agree with your job profiles. We’ve found that business development people who have an EPT and OT combination are top achievers.
