THE BIRTH OF A METAPHOR:
HOW THE DOLPHIN AND ITS SISTER PSYCHOLOGICAL CONCEPTS
HAPPENED TO SHOW UP

I’ve been asked more than a few times where the idea of the carp-shark-NoQuiff-dolphin mindset and worldview model came from. The story takes some telling because this was one of those “one thing led to another, and another, and another” kinds of developments.
A critical component of the “a-ha!” that led to the model’s materialization [...]

WHEN THESE KINDS OF “TESTIMONIALS” SPONTANEOUSLY SHOW UP IN OUR E-MAIL BOX, THEY MAKE OUR DAY AT BRAIN TECHNOLOGIES

The e-mail message we received the other day read:
When I was a pastor about 20 miles south of Charlotte, NC, I received a mail-out from you when you were in Colorado. I ordered (and still have) your original plastic-ring, self-published version of your work, Strategy of the Dolphin, and soon thereafter, I was moved [...]

Friends of ours told us the other night about their grandson, now 7, who lives just down the street from them. That means he spends a lot of nights at their place, school nights included. And that means either his grandmother or his granddad (but usually his grandmother) is freighted with the task of rousting [...]

The Latest Business Buzz Word Is Trust, But Rather than Expanding the Supply, the TrustMe Movement Is Hugely Expanding the Number of People Who Have Reason to Wonder If You and I Are Trustworthy at All

Trust is a precious metal in my periodic table of people qualities, although I tend toward optimism that it can be justified. As readers of Dr. Paul Kordis’ and my book, Strategy of the Dolphin, know, it is a worldview thing with me. Evil, stupidity and blind belief show up much too often to treat [...]
