Last Updated: Dec 07, 2017 03:02PM EST
Natural Behavior is a 10-minute discovery process that an individual completes. The outcome of this process is 8 core and 32 sub-factors represented by numbers ranging 0-80. 

Sample GET code (sent from your external application to DNA)
$("#btnGetClientResults").click(function ()
var ApiPersonID = 10000517;
var OrgID = "abc12345-1234-12ab-1ab2-abc123456789";
var DNAUserName = "";
               var url = "";                                      
               var headers = {};
               // other headers omitted
               headers['Access-Control-Allow-Origin'] = "*";
                              url: url,
                              type: 'GET',
                              dataType: 'jsonp',
                              jsonpCallback: 'callback',
                              headers: headers,
                              data: { "id": ApiPersonID, "OrgID" : OrgID, "DNAUserName" : DNAUserName },
                              crossDomain: true,
                              contentType: 'application/json; character=utf-8',
                              success: function (data)

Sample response (sent by DNA in response to your GET request):

Translating the data: 
DNA Behavior will respond with T-scores, a numerical value of 20-80 to represent the strength of each particular behavioral factor. Before coding anything, we recommend that you first analyze a 1-page Factor Report for a sample client to understand how you may want to use the behavioral data. Business DNA sample reports can be found here, and Financial DNA sample reports can be found here

Below guidelines when translating the data from this API into behavioral insights in your application:
  • T-scores range from 20-80 for all of the factors and sub factors. The format of the scores in the response payload is different than the values shown on the 1 Page Factor Reports (the report has left and right side factors, we will be only send the right-side factor words scores in our response).
  • T-scores with a value of ≥ 50 (equal to or greater than 50) will be “right-side factors” and T-scores with a value of < 50 will be “left-side factors”.

As shown in the graph above, Approachable has a score of ≥ 50 so on the report it is shown on the right side. Exacting has a score of < 50 so on the report it is shown on the left side.

Interpreting the data: 
In the response payload, DNA Behavior will send the T-scores for the behavioral factors. The behavioral factors named 5-36. Please use the below guidelines when translating this data into behavioral insights one would typically see on a behavioral report.

Translating "TopTwo" data:
Ties are very common with individuals so in the event that you wish to evaluate the top two factors, you can reference our response automatically. In the case of the parameter “TopTwo”. This represents the top two factors for a participant based on their factor scores.

In the TopTwo parameter, there will be two placeholders. These two placeholder separated by a comma. The first placeholder represents the strongest behavioral factor that a client has and the second placeholder represents the second strongest behavioral factor that a client has. For example "TopTwo":"1st,2nd",
