The Structogram training system (Biostructure analysis) was based on the findings of scientific research of the human brain. It has been confirmed also by the latest results of anthropological disciplines and systems sciences.
The American brain researcher and Director of the Brain Evolution and Behaviour Institute at the National Institute of Mental health, Bethesda/Maryland, Professor Dr. Paul D. MacLean studied the fundamental evolution/biological principles and mechanisms of action (functional structure) of the brain in the 1970’s and 1980’s. He discovered that our brain kept the basic evolutionary development elements.
MacLean described this discovery with the term “Triune Brain”. His discovery contributed to the understanding of the correlation between the structure of the brain and the human being, i.e. the human behaviour.
The anthropologist Rolf W. Schirm from Munich developed the model of the human personality based on numerous empirical studies. He found the uniqueness and accurateness of this Structural model in the natural and scientific foundations of the “Triune-Brain-Concept” of Professor MacLean.
The result of their meetings that were held during the 1970’s is the Biostructural analysis and Structogram.
One of the founders of Schweizerisches Institut für Betriebsökonomie and former owner of Organisator publishing company from Zurich Dr. Victor Bataillard met Rolf W. Schirm during the 1980’s. Together they established IBSA - Institut für Biostruktur-Analysen AG in Zurich as an international franchisor.
Following the death of Dr. Bataillard, the Swiss Peter Stutz took over the management of the Institute which today operates from Lucerne, Switzerland.
Following the death of Rolf W. Schirm, Director of the German Structogram Centre and member of the Scientific Advisory Board of IBSA Jürgen Schoemen and his team of interdisciplinary scientists found the scientific foundation of the Biostructural Analysis in neuroscience, molecular biology as well as behavioural genetics.
The team of authors Christian Reist, Juergen Schoemen and Peter Stutz spent the following years developing the Structogram Training System as we know it today. The modular system with “Structogram – Key to Self-knowledge”, “Key to understanding others” and “Key to clients”.
