  • bp Analyzes The Thinking Style of Tim Cook, Apple CEO

 — Dr. Rosalene Glickman, international best-selling author of Optimal Thinking, senior executive coach, and founder of, announces a new analysis she conducted on Tim Cook’s thinking style.  Cook is the revered CEO of Apple Inc., which recently released the Apple watch.

Glickman analyzed each word, phrase, and sentence Cook used during first quarter investor conference calls in 2013, 2014, and 2015. She then rated his language according to a hierarchy of thinking to uncover his dominant and supporting thinking styles over time.


According to Glickman, “The results of the analysis are fascinating.  Cook demonstrated extraordinary positive thinking as his dominant level of thinking in these calls. Extraordinary positive thinkers focus on being more than ordinary, unusually great, and outstanding. They demonstrate a bias towards unusual constructive actions that produce a remarkable difference.”
