PRISM Brain Mapping – Behavior Adaptability Tool India
PRISM and 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 some very fundamental differences.
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.
To facilitate understanding, PRISM uses colours to illustrate the behaviour preferences. Although the PRISM model is a metaphor for brain functioning, the PRISM maps represent the dynamic interaction that takes place within the brain and is based on the principle that no one part of the brain does solely one thing and no one part of the brain acts alone. All our thoughts, emotions and actions are the results of many parts of the brain acting together.
‘Plasticity’ is the neuroscience term for the brain’s ability to change. At one time, it was believed, and widely taught, that the adult brain could not change once a certain level of development had occurred. This ‘cradle to the grave’ approach taken by many traditional psychometric tests is now impossible to sustain in the light of neuroscience discoveries. Your brain is physically different today from how it was yesterday. That difference results from the effect of yesterday’s and today’s experiences, as well as the thoughts and feelings that you have entertained during the past 24 hours.
