Brain Maps for Psychometric Testing

Psychometric tests typically rely on the conscious response of a participant to questions and situational exercises.  With a Kaiser Neuromap, we can swerve this bias and assess how a person is predisposed to behaving, before exercising conscious control.  This gives us an alternate picture, and furthermore can be used to train areas of weakness. 

There are fifty-five distinct functional brain areas, and how they connect or do their job is what determines how we react, initiate and behave generally.  Most of their activity is pre-conscious, in that they serve to provide an interpretation of the world around us, as well as how we project into that environment.  Dysrhythmia in any brain area will relate to a particular type of behaviour along the categories below; this is evidence-based and well researched. 

Categories we can assess in a person are as follows; we identify vulnerabilities though we cannot determine from a brain map how these actually manifest; they are tendencies governed by how we are ‘wired’:

Social boundaries – considerate vs. invasive.  Film directors (neurofeedback comes from Los Angeles) tend to show up as invasive; neurofeedback training has helped them be able to turn off this quality when in a different setting, e.g. with family 

Personal boundaries – Actors, by contrast to film directors, show heightened recruitability, which is of great use on set.  The same brain area governs impulsive aggression, outward as well as inward (self-harm), so learning to control this faculty is a common target.  This brain area is also about how we react when things aren’t working out as envisioned

Impulsiveness – the ability to control reactions, such as invasiveness, aggression/ rage

Risk taking – ability to process high stake/high risk situations

Mood stability – whether a person is prone to mood swings, and consequently also motivational steadiness

Ability to take on new perspectives – seeing situations from all sides, exposing oneself to multiple outlooks, vs. being married to one’s own perspective (ultimately a stressful way to be, it implies that one perceives all sensory stimulus directed at oneself)

Excessive truth/honesty vs. prevarication – we can expose tendencies for one or the other behaviour, yet this is not a lie detector..

Focus and attention – distractibility.

Sleep quality – both ability to fall asleep (“letting things go”) as well as depth of recovery

Job satisfaction – we can tell if a person is in a state where they feel they are expanding, moving forward, of if that is an issue

Social complexity – understanding the dynamics in the room vs. being presumptive

Tendency to monitor consequences of actions – how much mental energy a person expends on this process; also, whether they have an abuser (someone they are avoiding / spending excessive mental energy on predicting)
