PRISM
PRISM

PRISM is a revolutionary way of identifying people’s behaviour preferences.

It’s an online behavioural profiling tool used by many businesses to maximise employee potential, approaching human behaviour from the perspective of neuroscience, rather than psychological theory.

This exciting online tool takes advantage of some of the most up-to-date neuroscience discoveries to provide users with a series of ‘maps’ which are representations of how they prefer to respond to the world around them.
