Career Counseling is a process in which an expert helps you with your career exploration, career change, personal career development and other career related issues. This is a process in which the practitioner gives advice on “career” with counseling techniques that simplifies complex decisions and difficult situations for the client. The expert helps you know yourself better using a set of questions (Verbal or written). Based on the response, the expert guides you in getting answers to some complex questions which one is unable to answer by self.
Brain Mapping is “in person Interaction” process with the Counselor, in which the Aptitude of the child is accessed, looking at the comfort and natural bent towards different subjects which the child is exposed to in the previous years of his/her academic or non academic exposure. Following this, in the same in person interaction, interest of the child is accessed by gauging his top of the mind recall and leisure time spent or desired and lastly, counsellor talks to the parent to understand the influence on the child of his/her surroundings along with family/Peer Group/Social impact.
The Brain Mapping method of Career Counselling is MOST effective tool due to three reasons:
1. Since the process is personal interaction based, each response of the child can be assessed carefully and which response has to be discounted or enhanced, can be taken in consideration by the counsellor. (Which is impossible in MCQ Written Test)
2. An open option of deep probing is available, if in any response the counsellor feels some disconnect. (This is impossible in MCQ Written Test in 1st round. Only in the second round it can be done, if and only if the counsellor is able to figure out the discrepancy, which is extremely difficult.)
3. Counsellor can remove any ambiguity in the response, if found, at any point of time during the interaction. (This is impossible in MCQ Written Test in 1st round. Only in the second round it can be eliminated if and only if the counsellor is able to figure out the discrepancy which is extremely difficult.)
A test containing Psychometric questions of multiple choice type, ranging between 100 to 600 in number, to be completed in a given time frame is Multiple Choice Psychometric Test. This test is administered to the child and then the report based on the child’s response in form of A/B/C/D options is generated. This tool used for career counseling has load of drawbacks.
In my research, I found these tests were built to cater to masses because individual counselling and probing took a lot of time and the scalability was restricted. Also, most of these tests were developed in western countries and were not sufficiently tested and balanced as per Indian needs.
Further in my research, I found that most of the children either do not understand most questions in these tests or after answering a few questions, they do not take the test seriously and just start marking the choices at random. This drastically affects the reliability of the report and thus renders the process inefficient for Career Counseling.
DMIT, also known as “Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test” is an empirical study which is associated with fingerprint patterns and brain lobes. This study claims to help in understanding a unique inborn potential and personality.
This study was conducted by Howard Gardner and he proposed this model in his book in 1983 “Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences”.
As per Critical reception heading in DMIT at Wikipedia, “Gardner argues that there is a wide range of cognitive abilities, but that there are only very weak correlations among them.
Intelligence tests and psychometrics have generally found high correlations between different aspects of intelligence, rather than the low correlations which Gardner's theory predicts, supporting the prevailing theory of general intelligence rather than multiple intelligences (MI).The theory has been criticized by mainstream psychology for its lack of empirical evidence, and its dependence on subjective judgment”.
