MINERVA is a paradigm-shifting marketing tool developed by ABACULUS GROUP. It facilitates deeper understanding of human thinking and decision making. It helps in decoding the actions and behavior of others. This method, unlike others, is able to overcome distortion factors. It provides a much more genuine picture of what is really going on inside the participants when they have to make a choice or decision.

We used several psychological tools derived from psychodrama, psychoanalysis, cognitive and behavioral therapy, symbol therapy, art therapy and cultural anthropology during the MINERVA research. In addition the analysis and observation of group dynamic processes played an important role in the conceptual background. According to the three-hour session we analyzed the research and we presented the results to our Client within two weeks.
