The Profile is NOT about recalibrating your outlook OR your intellect. Rather, it is about helping you build on your strengths, compensate for your weaknesses and derive the greatest benefit from your particular way of seeing and being in the world. The Profile will NOT and should NOT transform you into another person. Rather, it will help you be the best you can be: intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. The Profile feels transformative; its objective is to help you rediscover, reclaim and appreciate your authentic inner self.
User-friendly, The Profile provides a plethora of potent and compelling sociological, historical and pedagogical data, statistical and non-statistical, to exhort and encourage the target population and their respective families, friends, schools, neighbors, teammates, co-workers, and the like, to take mindful, appropriate and purposeful action, when necessary. Instead of merely gathering vital data about a person in bits and pieces, as has heretofore been the case in most instances, the decidedly more comprehensive Profile allows an in-depth, significantly fuller analysis of the individual in question so that a multi-faceted profile of self emerges, one which clearly highlights and explains a number of that individual’s specific academic, as well as personal strengths, weaknesses, behavior commonalities, belief systems, career potentials, relationship matches, neurodiversity characteristics, and the like.
By working through the sundry assessments at one’s own pace and in privacy and then by applying the findings of this dynamic personal profile in a guided manner, one can readily look back at one’s life as it has been, look forward to one’s life as it can become and look inward at the Self as to where one is now “in the moment”—OR out of it.
Your results are to be shared with the appropriate individual(s) and recommendations will be made, if necessary. Plans for your personal program will be formulated, as well.
In the case of the self-empowering Profile, the whole is truly greater than the sum of the parts.

· MAC Flash Pages—Be The Captain of Your Destiny: Discovering the Multi-Talented You
You have an amazing brain. In today’s test-crazed, fiercely competitive environment, we all need to hold in mind the potent words of Dr. Thomas Armstrong in his noted book, Neurodiversity: “. . . IQ scores are just numbers; yet as a nation the United States has been profoundly affected by the philosophical school of positivism, the idea that truth can be found only in numbers, statistics OR equivalent empirical data.” Surely, your natural talents, your complex nature, your keen interests and insights, together with the ironic blessings bestowed and the wisdom gleaned from that master teacher, viz., adversity, must be factored in, as well. With a spirit of open-minded adventure, not only discover even more about your nature and those viable career options that would be so right for you but moreover recognize and appreciate the innate talents and signature behaviors of others with whom you interact. With this pragmatic knowledge, you will be able to identify those positive and negative real-life individuals, e.g., your teacher, your coach/trainer OR boss and those situations, e.g., dorm life, the playing field OR a work environment, that constitute your personal deal makers and deal breakers. When you do, you will have more potentially positive experiences and be truly healthier and happier. Life is good. Live it with integrity, gusto, kindness and respect for our neurodiverse differences and similarities. Clearly, everyone has a contribution to make—be it simple OR profound.
