Language and Behavior (LAB) model

We create our model of the world through deletions, distorsions and generalizations. Those create patterns that the LAB (Language and Behavior) model classifies in:

  • Motivation traits that indicate what a person needs to get and stay motivated in a given context
  • Working traits that describe the internal mental processing that a person uses in a specific situation

They show up in how a person talks.

Does the person take the initiative or wait for others?

People in the Proactive category act with little or no consideration; they are motivated by doing. 

Language: do it, jump in, get it done, now.

People in the Reactive category are motivated to wait, analyze, consider and react. 

Language: understand, think about, analyze, consider, wait, might, could, would

In the work context, most people have a balanced Proactive and Reactive pattern.

What are the words that will elicit a physical and emotional response?

A person's labels for things are important to them. They are hot buttons because they are attached to emotions and memories.

Questions: What do you want in a ...? What is important to you?

Language: use the person's own words (do not paraphrase).

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
