The foundation of behavioral analysis is based on a simple theory: behavior is predictable. That doesn’t mean one individual can completely predict how another person will always behave or react to a situation. We can, however, measure the predictability of how someone will behave over a longer time period, measuring their behaviour in a role not for a day but for a year, because humans are predictable.
Have you ever noticed the co-worker who comes in every Monday, hardly says hello to anyone, and immediately heads to his cubicle? Would you call that behavior predictable? Now, imagine if that same person comes in one Monday, stops by your desk and goes into great depths telling you all about his weekend and also wants to know all about yours . . . and then wants to join you for lunch. Doesn’t happen very often, if ever. Behavioral analysis allows us to understand this about a person, even before we meet, interview or hire them.
Behavioral analysis is the process of assessing and defining an individual’s natural orientations, predispositions, and motivational factors.
Effectively Utilizing Behavioral Analysis Profiles
Behavioral analysis profiles are of great interest and value to organizations whose managers and human resource professionals are continuously trying to improve their ability to get “the right person in the right job.” Managers, particularly, are focused on learning more about the strengths, weaknesses and potential of their staff.
Pro.file is a validated suite of psychometric instruments that are specifically designed to help organizations identify the key traits/characteristics they need for any role in their organization through the Pro.file Organization questionnaire, measure the same traits in candidates or employees using the Pro.file People survey, and compare the “fit” to understand the likelihood of performance success in the position.
