Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    This brings to mind the triune brain framework by Dr. Paul MacLean (which many may remember via Carl Sagan’s book “The Dragons of Eden”).

    Mr. Kosslyn mentions that all areas of the brain are always interacting. I have noticed that they are not necessarily cooperating!

    I think he may have a future pop/industrial psychology hit on his hands with this ‘four modes’ of cognitive function-based personality description. Middle management bureaucrats will undoubtedly organize incredibly productive and profound teams using this model. Lawrence Livermore won’t have nuthin’ on Dunder Mifflin once this gets out.

    Maybe I missed something but this sounds like a re-hash of Myers-Briggs.
