What is PRISM Brain mapping?

PRISM Brain Mapping is the world’s most comprehensive, online, neuroscience-based behaviour mapping instrument.

PRISM Brain Mapping is a sophisticated, online, neuroscience-based instrument specifically designed to identify the behavioural preferences that directly relate to personal relationships and work performance.

It has been designed so that a trained PRISM practitioner can operate the system via their own unique log-in to the secure system. Once logged in, a Practitioner can email questionnaire links to their candidates and then manage the output report content dependent on their requirements.



Neuroscience is highly complex and its terminology is often difficult to comprehend. In essence, PRISM Brain Mapping’s goal is to make this complex information as practical and as easy to understand as possible. It is about enabling people with no neuroscientific background to understand and use some of the latest discoveries of brain science in their personal and business lives. In fact, neuroscience will only be truly useful in business if it can be understood by those using it.


This does not require an in-depth understanding of brain chemistry, anatomy and physiology. In the same way that most people do not have to know the detailed workings of a computer before they can make effective use of it and its applications, they do not have to understand all the intricacies of the brain to grasp the relevance of its basic principles and the role it plays in creating human behaviour. Although the field of neuroscience is advancing at a tremendously rapid pace, learning the fundamental principles of how brain science can help personal and business performance is a solid first step towards understanding the role that the brain plays in our everyday lives.

What is PRISM BRAIN mapping

For an introduction into PRISM, have a look at this short video explaining it.

What does PRISM create?

Brain maps

PRISM provides three distinct profiles, or ‘maps’, of a person’s behaviour: how he or she naturally prefers to behave; the extent to which he or she feels it necessary to modify that behaviour on occasions to achieve key objectives, and the overall pattern of behaviour that he or she tends to use for most of the time

Reports

In addition to the eight behaviour dimension maps, PRISM generates up to a 60-page personalised report which identifies and measures 26 key aspects of work preference

Emotional Intelligence (EQ)

PRISM also provides an analysis of a person’s Emotional Intelligence (EQ)  preferences and a summary of his or her ‘big five’ personality traits, one of the most widely accepted and used models of personality.

Brain driven behaviour

At the root of the PRISM Brain Mapping instrument is the basic fact that all behaviour is brain-driven. Each person has his or her own way of looking at the world (perception) and responding to it (behaviour). Those recurring responses - part inherited and part learned - fall into patterns, referred to as behaviour preferences. Each person exhibits his or her own personal behaviour preferences to a great extent by how and what they say and do. Much like a successful company, the brain relies on the input of its various parts prior to making a decision. That is, the brain acts as a set of collaborating brain regions that operate as a large-scale network.

Recruitment

PRISM measures how closely a person matches the behavioural requirements of their job, invaluable for a range of development interventions


Every person you recruit into your business has the potential to strengthen your organisation or weaken it. PRISM Job Benchmarking is the science of clearly defining superior performance in a role and then using objective criteria to help determine which candidate would be the ‘best fit’. In essence, it is the science of matching the person who is most suitable for the vacancy in terms of behavioural strengths, work aptitude and work environment preferences.


PRISM Job Benchmarking is a simple process that will ultimately help you to identify those candidates who have high performance potential for specific roles in your organisation. It is a process that goes deeper than conventional recruitment methods and creates not only a comprehensive picture of which candidate is most suitable, but also clarifies those elements of the job that are critical for performance excellence. It is not designed to identify or measure a candidate’s eligibility for a role.


PRISM Job Benchmarking is based on a number of well validated academic studies and provides businesses with a coherent, reliable and consistent analytical framework for helping to make good recruitment decisions. However, it is not only for new employees, it is also ideal for promotions and anytime a business considers moving a person from one job to another – or maybe just changing someone’s duties or tasks. 

Any profiling tool, such as PRISM, should never be used to make a recruitment or re-deployment decision unsupported by other techniques.

Science behind PRISM

It is important to stress that PRISM Brain Mapping and traditional psychometric instruments stem from two different sciences and direct comparison is akin to comparing apples and oranges; they have some factors in common, but also fundamental differences.


Unlike many psychometric instruments, PRISM is not based on a theory developed by any one person. It represents a simple, yet comprehensive, synthesis of research by some of the world’s leading neuroscientists into how the human brain works, and why people, who have similar backgrounds, intelligence, experience, skills, and knowledge, behave in very different ways. The instrument’s graphical representation of the human brain serves, not only to remind people of its biological basis, but also to help demonstrate the equally valuable merits of specific cerebral modes. The role of neuroscience - and PRISM - is to explain behaviour in terms of the activities of the brain. How the brain marshals its billions of individual nerve cells to produce behaviour, and how these cells are influenced by the environment.
