Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
The TIPS Map
TIPS spans a profiling map using the four base orientations as pillars and the four TIPS styles as an overlaying map with a coordinate system.
The TIPS profiling map gives room for the 11 TIPS innovator profiles, and allows for making further distinctions based on the degree of profile expression (TIPS profile levels) and —for dual profiles— the side-orientation.
11 Innovator Profiles
TIPS is based on a fundamental insight: Everyone can contribute to the business and innovation efforts of a firm, albeit in very different ways, based on one’s preferred thinking style and work style. Take a look at the brief description of the essential nature of each TIPS profile:
People who orient themselves towards theories tend to be rational, abstract big picture thinkers who love to learn and know more about the true nature of things. They value precision and prefer to work alone on an interesting intellectual challenge. Theory-driven people logically deduct conclusions based on facts and abstract thinking. They typically follow a step-by-step approach when solving a problem. They feel comfortable dealing with numbers and compute accurate results.
People driven by ideas are typically intuitive and imaginative creative thinkers bursting with ideas. They love to focus on the future and the big picture. They skillfully discern trends, patterns and opportunities. Their holistic perspective helps them synthesize solutions using a fluid, radiant style of thinking based more on guesses, approximations, and hunches than on facts. They experiment, invent and don’t mind taking risks to activate an idea that they love. They relish and drive change.
People oriented toward other people tend to be friendly and talkative. They enjoy working and spending time with others. They value belonging and easily adapt and compromise when they feel loyal to a group. They are spontaneous and emotional. They pay attention to their feelings and the feelings of others in the group. Some categorize them as “touchy-feely”.
People who gravitate toward systems and processes tend to be hands-on and grounded in reality. Typically, they are neat and organized. They enjoy bringing more structure and order to the world using rules, efficient processes, and reliable systems. They usually construct detailed plans before taking action. Then they progress step-by-step through the plan until they achieve the desired outcomes and results.

“Every now and then I come across an assessment that fills a definite need and does it extremely well. TIPS is just one of these.“
Head of Space Range and Transformation
Tesco Lotus Thailand
“Already read through the TIPS result, I really like it. Actually, I've just bought personality analysis pack from 16Personality (INFJ advocate), but TIPS can provide me with a more interesting and deeper analysis about my creativity style. When I read my TIPS report, it’s like having someone really understand me and who I am, especially the "Assets & Liabilities" summary!“

“Working with the public, on a daily basis, providing products and services, has really allowed me to maximize my TIPS training. Not only is my approach with my co-workers more thoughtful and empathetic, but how I communicate with vendors and clients has also developed.“
CEO, KNotion Labs
Creator of Reality Based Innovation
“TIPS stands out in two important ways: First, it precisely identifies each persons inherent strengths in a way that is understandable and meaningful. Second, it enables individuals to quickly understand areas where they are likely to provide the most value to an innovation program. For companies, TIPS enables leaders to select the best possible team for specific innovation stages, which can have an immediate impact on the organization. I can’t recommend this enough!“
Executive Coach, Personal Branding Expert & Speaker
“As an executive coach, the TIPS Innovation & Business Assessment is the perfect partner to my proven coaching practice. TIPS excels in creating better understanding, clearer communication and increased productivity.“
COO, Brand Connect Asia Pacific
“TIPS helped us to better understand what people we have on the team now, how to realign some of our talents to cater to their strengths and cognitive styles, and to identify critical people delivery gaps that we need to deliver on our regional growth strategy. At my last company, we had used HBDI, another cognitive profiling tool that I also like. However, I believe that in comparison, TIPS has more concrete applications for business and innovation. which makes it easier for managers to use the tool to produce results.“
Asst. Vice President
TRIS Academy of Management
“TIPS innovation profiling is the assessment tool that I've found my clients responded to best. I like using it because it identifies our unique capabilities including our thinking style and work style. It's a fabulous tool in creating self-awareness and a top-performer profile.“
Vice President, Head of Global Supply Chain Management
“I believe that the price/performance ratio is really great compared to other similar tools. I also think the overall impression is young, fresh, cool, motivating and —the most important part— right and serious. Absolutely well done!“
Driven Spirit, Creative Soul & Yoga Teacher worldwide
“ Looking at the TIPS results was like a personal "epiphany." All of a sudden, I became consciously aware of who I am and what I am made for. Moreover, after answering the guiding questions in the TIPS report, I realized that I want to make a drastic change in my career.As an Ideator, I ultimately trust my gut and believe in great ideas and concepts. TIPS is one of them. It can unfold people’s true potential —individually and within a team— by letting everyone work in harmony with their true selves and talents.“
What is your preferred style to live, interact, work, and think?
The last preference Figure vs. Fantasy tracks if people are more left-brain or right brain directed thinkers. This preference helps to identify who are the analytical number crunchers and who are the creative dreamers.
The third preference Brain vs. Brawn checks if people are abstract conceptual thinkers or practical doers. This preference helps to understand why in most firms, the doers and the thinkers tend to rise to the top of the hierarchy.
Fact vs. Feeling expresses if people prefer to decide on rational judgement and facts or based on their feelings and emotions. This preference helps to explain why some people cannot interact and communicate well with each other.
Form vs. Flow captures if people prefer to live in a highly structured, well-organized world or prefer things to be more flexible, changing and fluidly evolving. It is the most important preference to explain differences in people’s innovation styles.
