Complex Thinking, Extended

This test builds on Complex Thinking - Base, please see separate specification. It also includes two additional complex and important abilities; Impulse control and Conceptualization. This means you will also get with a good understanding of a person’s “self-control” and the ability to understand what is important in a context.  The test also indicates an individual’s ability to update his/her actions when given new information.

Main abilities

Impulse control

  •    To be able to stop one’s own irrelevant thoughts and impulses

  •    To be able to assess when impulses are correct and affirm these


The ability to identify, sort and see relevant patterns in complex amounts of information and contexts. Examples why this is important:

  •    To quickly see important connections in information-dense decision material

  •    To be able to opt out unimportant connections

Supporting quality indicator - Update
