Exploring brain mapping with PRISM

03 July 2020

At OSA we offer a form of brain mapping known as PRISM, which can pinpoint your behavioural preferences.  This enables you to identify your current strengths and those that you may wish to develop, as well as looking at how you interact with others.  PRISM is a great tool and lots of us at OSA have undertaken the brain mapping survey to better understand ourselves.


So what is PRISM?

Survey -  You answer a series of multiple choice questions online about your behaviour for around 45 minutes, ranking attributes like ambition, confidence, innovation and evaluation, selecting ones you feel are most like you in a work environment.

Map - Your results are then configured into a map, indicating the quadrants of our brain, showing where your strengths lie.

Report - You will also receive a tailored report which acts as a guide to understanding the traits and behaviours of the quadrants and how these relate to you.

Review    The map and report are sent to Annie or Alice our PRISM practitioners who will be happy to arrange a meeting or call to explain the map and discuss the results with you.


The great thing about PRISM is…

  • There are no right answers - it just provides insights into your behaviour.
  • You can be strong in many aspects - some behavioural tests categorise you into a 'type'.
  • The map is ever evolving depending on your job, your actions and behaviours. 


The Science Bit

PRISM maps are grounded in neuroscience and the map generated is based on the areas of the brain that those traits occur in. You may already know that the right and left sides of our brain operate differently, one being more traditionally logical and focussed, the other more creative and emotive - the map allows you to see into your own mind.  These halves are then broken down into quadrants reflecting analysis, expression, drive and stability.

Example PRISM Map

The results of your PRISM Map can help you see what kind of jobs you may be suited for if you are changing or just starting your career, and also identify ways you may wish to progress in your current role.
