Guidance and FAQs

I didn’t rate myself as high-stakes for many of the questions. What are the implications of this? #

This is not uncommon. It can be more difficult to assess ourselves in high-stakes. Over the next couple of weeks, turn up the volume about your experiences of high stakes by noticing what is happening for you when you are under pressure. Make sure to note the different contexts or situations that are the least comfortable for you to be in. It can be easy to discount or dismiss these experiences. Talk with someone who knows you well and ask them what they notice about your reactivity in high-stakes. Your bMaps license lasts for 12 months and you can re-take the assessment as many times as you like during this period. You will also be able to see your previous results and do a comparison.

There is little difference between my low and high-stakes profile, why is this? #

This may be because you have not rated yourself as high-stakes to the scenarios presented. The algorithm will still take your highest high-stakes scores in order to create a high-stakes profile. If you did not consider the context/scenarios presented to be particularly high-stakes, your high and low-stakes scores will only reflect small differences [see the FAQ above for what you can do]. 

My report says that I am extremely likely to use all of the behaviours when I’m in high-stakes, does this mean that I have good behavioural range when I’m in high-stakes? #

If you were showing as being extremely likely to adopt any of the behaviours in your low-stakes profile, this does suggest you have good behavioural range. However, if the same thing is showing in your high-stakes profile, this is unlikely. In high-stakes there is often an involuntary use of behaviours until we lower the stakes for ourselves and can make choices once more. The behaviours become amplified and take on a different vocal tone.
