 + ​PROFILE CREATION\\ \\  Now that you've completed the Information Processing Inventory, let's plot your results and\\  discuss what it all means.\\ \\  The first step is to plot your scores from the Inventory in order get a visual representation of\\  your unique Information Processing Profile. We're going to use a bar graph because it more\\ ​ clearly shows you where your strengths lie.\\ \\  Here is a quick video showing you how to create your Information Processing Profile bar graph.\\ ​ The written instructions are printed just below the video.\\ \\  1. [[http://​nces.ed.gov/​nceskids/​graphing/​classic/​bar_pie_data.asp?​ChartType=bar|CLICK HERE]] to go the website where you'll find an interactive bar graph creation page.\\ ​ 2. In the space for title of graph type something like "My Information Processing Profile"​.\\ ​ 3. For title of X axis type "​Survey Sections";​ for title of Y axis type "Score Totals"​.\\ ​ 4. Then move down the chart and in the first row of the NAME column type "​Section 1"; then, in the VALUE\\ ​ column type your total score for Section 1 from the survey. You can leave the COLOR column as\\  "​default"​ unless you want to change it.\\  5. Continue on down until you have the first 8 rows filled in.\\  6. At the bottom leave Min Value and Max Value blank.\\ ​ 7. The rest of the choices at the bottom are your preference, however we would suggest that you\\  create either a vertical or horizontal graph in that it will give you a better picture of your profile.\\ ​ 8. Finally, click the "​create a printable graph" button. Open the print program on your computer\\ ​ and save your profile as a PDF file on your computer.\\ \\  Now let's talk about what the different sections mean.\\ \\ 
 +| **__Section 1: VISUAL - SPATIAL PROCESSING__**\\ If this is one of your more developed information processing modes, you very likely tend to think in images and pictures. You should practice expressing yourself, your thoughts and ideas, through pictures, images, symbols, colors, designs, and patterns. You also may have a vivid imagination so develop the skill of visualization or seeing images and picture things inside your head. | **__Section 2: LOGICAL - MATHEMATICAL PROCESSING__**\\ People who are logical-mathematically inclined think more conceptually and abstractly and are often able to see patterns and relationships that others miss. If this is you, you make sure you are clear on the logic and rationale behind different tasks that are part of your day. Organize your day in a logical, sequential manner using such things as flow charts, outlines, and various graphic organizers\\ |
 +| **__Section 3: BODILY - KINESTHETIC PROCESSING__**\\ If you're strong in this area you may find it difficult to sit still for long periods of time and you may be easily bored or distracted if you’re are not actively involved in what's going on around you. You should take frequent opportunities to be up moving around. Get your body into your work through such things as demonstrating how to perform a task for others or creating a role play to help others understand how to work effectively with a client. | **__Section 4: NATURALIST PROCESSING__**\\ Persons for whom the naturalist processing is a strength generally have a profound love for the outdoors, animals, plants, and almost any natural object. If this is you, you should make frequent opportunities to go out into nature and/or bring nature into you workplace and home environment. Express your ideas, thoughts, feelings, and suggestions through natural metaphors. |
 +| **__Section 5: MUSICAL - RHYTHMIC - AUDITORY PROCESSING__**\\ People who are strong in this processing mode likely have a love of music and rhythmic patterns. They are very sensitive to sounds in the environment. If this is a strength for you, you should explore the rhythm and beat of different dimensions of your life, for example, your workplace, family, etc. Pay attention to how say what they say in conversations – the sound of their speech may communicate more than the actual meaning of their words.\\ | **__Section 6: VERBAL - LINGUISTIC PROCESSING__**\\ If this is one of your stronger information processing areas, you likely have highly developed skills for reading, speaking, and writing, and you tend to think in words. Communicate your ideas, provide feedback, make suggestions in written form. Look for opportunities to have discussions with others and find interesting and entertaining articles and books to read. |
 +| **__Section 7: INTERPERSONAL PROCESSING__**\\ If is more developed you probably learn and work best through personal interactions. You likely have lots of friends, show a great deal of empathy for other people, and exhibit a deep understanding of other points of view. You should find ways to collaborate with others and create team projects in the workplace. Solve problems with others. Get into a coaching or mentoring relationship with others to improve job performance and productivity. | **__Section 8: INTRAPERSONAL PROCESSING__**\\ People for whom this introspective processing mode is a strong point may like or need to work alone, and sometimes they may seem to shy away from others. They are self-reflective and self-aware, and thus tend to be in tune with their inner feelings. You should frequently “go inside” and become aware of you feelings, intuitions, reflections,​ and thought processes. Take them time to reflect before having to produce something or give an answer a question. Work on your personal goals and the goals for your business. |
