INTERPRETING CSI SCORES
Scores on the CSI can range from 0 to 76. A score of 0 indicates a very strong preference for intuitive ways of processing information and a score of 76 indicates a very strong preference for analytical ways of thinking. While some of us will be wholly intuitive or wholly analytical most of us will have a preference for processing information which involves elements of both intuition and analysis. This is shown in Figure 1.
In the middle range, the ‘adaptive’ style implies a balanced blend of the two modes of thinking. Either side of this are the ‘quasi-intuitive’ and ‘quasi-analytical’ styles, each of which denotes a tendency towards, but not the full adoption of, one of the extreme modes of thinking. All five thinking styles are described below
