October 2002, Time Magazine noted the runaway popularity of online personality
tests. The trend has only increased since then. One leading personality
quiz site saw traffic quadruple in a one-year period. The tests range from
the silly (“What Breed of Dog Are You?) to the serious (Myers-Briggs,
DISC and Birkman). The more serious tests, while fascinating and valuable,
are often too complex for immediate or practical application in the workplace.
While the research behind the LCS is complex, the fundamentals are easily
comprehended, and readily applied to the workplace.
LCS is a unique assessment, as it measures a vital seed of personality –
how you experience the world. By assessing the way you take in experience
(learn) and convey experience (communicate), the LCS shows how you relate
to work, employers, fellow employees and workplace stress. Additional personality
characteristics, which are also reflected in the LCS, stem from these intrinsic
learning and communication patterns. The results of the LCS process, when
applied to teams and organizations, yield astounding benefits for businesses.
Understanding your own and others’ learning and communication sequences
makes for extremely effective communication, eradicating misunderstanding,
enhancing teamwork, lessening frustration and more.
The LCS is based on the triunal brain system, meaning that there are
three parts of the brain that control three very specific processes. These
three centers fire in a variety of sequences and intensities, thereby
determining our unique learning and communication sequences.
