They are figuring you out. At the speed of microchips. With billions of research dollars. In university labs, the NIH, IBM, Numenta and Google – you are riding the most profound scientific wave of interest atop the world health and manufacturing agendas. It’s about you, my Brain.
Though you are a cognitive masterpiece, still, my body has walked into businesses with a resume in hand only to learn HR wanted to know more about you, my Brain, than how I've applied your powers. They wanted psychometrics to compare me against benchmarks acquired from others' brains. The reports mirrored a daily horoscope. So I presented myself to HR with accurate experiences gained in past jobs and offered compelling reasons my skills would translate to present potential. They already had their bias formed because an intern had investigated my social media: I’m over 40. I attributed that to you – my Brain, for keeping me going strong. Next, they reviewed a 15 minute psychometric test to determine my cultural affinity with future norms driven by organizational strategy. Leadership experience, as I portrayed, they said may have been imagined; there was no algorithmic validation to go on. Are you a disruptive innovator? Can you project entrepreneurial behaviors? Does my neocortex indicate dependence or autonomy? They mentioned big data discovering my combinatorial skills; the ones that should combine with my potentially new team. Maybe they will consider my genome one day.
At the end of the day I’m not as smart as I thought. Analytics arising!
So, my Brain, human behavioral sciences and technology are figuring you out in the HR office. If they can’t then there is a “stalker” company like Joberate for assistance. A resume is no contender to predictive algorithms and neuroscience in software. Like a harmonic trio, psychology+neurology+genomics may soon form a software selected workforce. Even for CEO’s it’s a lot to think about.
