How is this research significant?Constructed Development Theory is having a major impact on a number of fields, including stage development as we discover methods o vertical growth not reliant on stages, as is the standard approach. Also, the field of Coaching has been impacted in a major way with the introduction of Dynamic Intelligence. Having a measurable scale for a coach's efficacy has spawned workshops, followers and an institute that controls the system across the globe. Other impact has been seen within psychology where the unification of a number of theories by the four pillars of CDT has given rise to a better understanding of existing theories, including Freud, Vygotsky, Piaget, Gardner, Spearman, Kahneman and more, as we understand that the unconscious Intention, Awareness, Choice and Response elicits far from each theory than has previously been seen.For example, if Freud had known about CDT, he would have understood that "ego" is a construct, and at the highest levels of the Awareness Quotient, it is a choice, and thus the label (his label) disappears altogether.

Current and On-going Projects
Lauretta, E., Stevens, D., Valente, M., and D’Orazio, P. (2022) The Linkage between Perceptions, Externalities and Financial Crisis: an Agent-Based Model.
The project investigates the structural and cognitive reasons that lead financial agents to underestimate risk and uncertainty and underprice risk assets in periods of economic prosperity. Positing that misleading perceptions can create distorted beliefs, this project centres on the role of externalities. This research fits within the “Behavioural Finance” research area, in particular, it regards the central topic of “linkage among Risk Perception, Externalities, and Financial Crisis.”
The study will contribute to the behavioural finance and ABM literature which has overlooked the core role played by perceptions in creating the financial operators' beliefs-behaviors.
