I started doing EEG readings on clients
that want to learn more about their brains
I have researched of a number of different segments of society in search of their Core Values (CV). I started with the felons that took my Positive Attitude Development (PAD) class in prison. Prisoners would tell me how they created some level of success upon their release from prison but then they quickly sabotaged that success regretting going back to prison. I thought these conflicting values or behaviors were unique to prisoners, but I found them to be common among college students and the general public involved in a local chamber of commerce class. These different segments identified many of the same CV but to my surprise the various groups also identified the same Core Value Violators (CVV). I believed the brain actually holds conflicting values or behaviors.
I have labelled the common positive Core Values as relationship building values and the common Core Value Violators as relationship sabotagers. I found different segments of the general public and prisoners are driven by the same set of CV and identified the same set of CVV, but then why did they have different outcomes? Some live a happy life, some live a chaotic life and some end up in prison. What makes the difference?
I started to question whether behaviors were actually driven by a set of Core Values. If not what drives our behaviors? Brain research helped me understand that the brain is the sole organ of behavior. Neurologist’s didn’t find an agent within the brain nor did they find any values that drives the brain or decision making area in the brain. They found different neurological landscapes produced different behaviors. This was a game changer for me.
The brain is the organ of all behavior and therefore different brain landscapes produce different behaviors. Some brains wouldn’t become hijacked and over run the prefrontal lobes, but other brains would become so intensely hijacked they would override the prefrontal lobes and sabotage the relationships and regret it the next day. Likewise, some brains become hijacked and commit a crime they regret the next day in a jail cell.
It is now my goal to see if I can create interest in scanning brains that are going into prison to determine the health of each antisocial brain. My next big project will be to identify the brain landscape[s] of criminal behavior and what we need to do to reconstruct a healthy brain.
