History Hermann Rorschach created the inkblot test in Using interpretation of "ambiguous designs" to assess an individual's personality is an idea that goes back to Leonardo da Vinci and Botticelli. Interpretation of inkblots was central to a game, Gobolinks from the late 19th century. Rorschach's, however, was the first systematic approach of this kind.
In his brain dominance model, Herrmann identifies four different modes of thinking: Analytical thinking Key words: Auditive, logical, factual, critical, technical and quantitative.
Sequential thinking Key words: Interpersonal thinking Key words: Kinesthetic, emotional, spiritual, sensory, feeling. Imaginative thinking Key words: Visual, holistic, intuitive, innovative, and conceptual.
Looking at the big picture, taking initiative, challenging assumptions, visuals, metaphoric thinking, creative problem solving, long term thinking. His theory was based on theories of the modularity of cognitive functions, including well-documented specializations in the brain's cerebral cortex and limbic systems, and the research into left-right brain laterilization by Roger Wolcott SperryRobert OrnsteinHenry Mintzbergand Michael Gazzaniga.
Use of that metaphor brought later criticism by brain researchers such as Terence Hines for being overly simplistic, however the metaphorical construct has proven effective in a variety of organizational contexts, especially for business and government. Herrmann also coined the concept Whole Brain Thinking as a description of flexibility in using thinking styles that one may cultivate in individuals or in organizations allowing the situational use of all four styles of thinking.
More than one style may be dominant at once in this model. A dissertation by C. Bunderson, currently CEO of the non-profit EduMetrics Institute  asserts that "four stable, discrete clusters of preference exist", "scores derived from the instrument are valid indicators of the four clusters", and "The scores permit valid inferences about a person's preferences and avoidances for each of these clusters of mental activity".
Hayes, in their own publication of a competing cognitive style indicator called Cognitive Style Index  in the peer reviewed Journal of Management Studiesnoted that "there appears to be little or no published independent evaluation of several self-report measures developed as management training tools.
Sadler-Smith in found cognitive style indicators generally useful for studying organizations. However, his tests were supported by EduMetrics, a company on contract with Herrmann International to evaluate the system, and were therefore not completely independent. Ned Herrmann described dominance of a particular thinking style with dominance with a portion of a brain hemisphere.
In other words, no evidence of validity [of hemisphere dominance] is presented. Portillo agreed that creativity is not localized into a particular thinking style, such as a right-brain dominance resulting in more creativity.
They did however find correlation between creativity in design students based on how flexible they were using all four thinking styles equally as measured by the HBDI.Lors de la délétion, une partie du séquence d'ADN est perdue ou supprimée.

At some point a longer list will become a List of Great Mathematicians rather than a List of Greatest Mathematicians. I've expanded my original List of Thirty to an even Hundred, but you may prefer to reduce it to a Top Seventy, Top Sixty, Top Fifty, Top Forty or Top Thirty list, or even Top Twenty, Top Fifteen or Top Ten List.

Our Nursing Philosophy at Texas Medical Center.
The philosophy for nursing at the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center is to create and maintain an environment that ensures the success of the professional nurse by providing the resources for them to exercise clinical judgment, decision-making, assessment, planning, intervention and evaluation to administer treatment and coordinate patient care.
