The CTI | Constructive Thinking Inventory is an a workbook and software designed for people ages 18 to 80 with emotional disabilities and brain injury to assess thier behavior and track their emotions. The work takes approximately 15-30 minutes. It asures beliefs and thinking patterns that underlie emotional intelligence, coping ability, physical and emotional well-being. The CTI measures the efficacy of the experiential system; intelligence tests measure the efficacy of the rational/intellectual system. Cannot be hand-scored. The individual's responses are entered into the software, and the program scores the protocol and automatically generates a score report with raw scores and gender-based T scores with a profile of the results. Predicts a variety of desirable abilities/states, that are either unrelated or only very weakly related to intellectual intelligence, including work performance, social skills, emotional and physical well-being. It has also been found that CTI scores significantly supplement intellectual intelligence in the prediction of academic performance as measured by grade point average. Widely applicable. In clinical and counseling settings, the CTI can be used to obtain diagnostic information about beliefs and ways of thinking that can be directly applied in psychotherapy and counseling. In this respect, the CTI has been particularly useful in treatment centers for drug abuse that emphasize the development of coping skills. In business settings, the CTI can be used for personnel selection and for training and counseling at all administrative levels. In educational settings, it can assist in the selection of students for college admissions and in the counseling of high school and college students. CTI scales provide information about beliefs and thinking processes at three levels of generality. The Global Constructive Thinking Scale, composed of items from several other scales, is the most general score. At the next level are six main scales (Emotional Coping, Behavioral Coping, Personal Superstitious Thinking, Categorical Thinking, Esoteric Thinking and Naive Optimism) that measure basic ways in which people think (constructively or destructively). Almost all main scales have subscales, which identify the specific thoughts and ways of thinking that make up the main scales. This information is useful for elucidating the scores on the main scales, for providing refined diagnoses and for counseling and psychotherapy geared toward correcting maladaptive beliefs and ways of thinking.
