Our Science Sets Us Apart

Research-based solutions that open doors to new possibilities.

The science behind Emergenetics uncovers new and unexpected ways of understanding and interacting with the people who are a part of your world.

When evaluating the universe of personality assessments, Drs. Geil Browning and Wendell Williams recognized that there was a gap. While some of the tools provided valuable information, none seemed to make a connection between human behavior and thinking styles, which resulted in an incomplete representation of an individual. They were determined to build a more comprehensive, yet easy to understand tool to empower people to appreciate their inherent strengths and the assets of others.

Working with a wide body of academic literature covering personality, psychology and neuroscience and testing their theory with more than 10,000 individuals, their findings were subjected to rigorous statistical analysis. The resulting 100-question survey meets the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing.

In their research, they discovered that seven characteristics were universally applicable to all humankind, which became the Emergenetics Attributes:

Behavioral Attributes

To ensure our science remains reliable and valid, a subset of our raw data is converted to global norms that we review biannually.

Emergenetics in Action

“We have been working with Emergenetics profiles for years now. It is one of our most valued workshops. Emergenetics helps our employees to become an even better version of themselves. They know themselves better and it turns judgements into opportunities within teams.”
