What is HBPR&A?

Human Behavior Pattern Recognition & Analysis

“Making order out of chaos.”

All people, events, and vehicles give off certain signals when they are measured against context, relevance, and societal or environmental baselines. Once learned, the operator can read these ‘signals’ as anomalies or as benign behaviors.

Learning how to quickly establishing a baseline and then detecting and acting on these anomalies is the essence of Human Behavior Pattern Recognition & Analysis (HBPR&A).  

While the majority of training and education throughout the globe provides individuals with the skills necessary to REACT to high-stress incidents (IEDs, Sniper, crowd violence, individual violence, border incidents, security breaches and the like), only HBPR&A trains individuals to be both PREDICTIVE and PROACTIVE, thereby completely avoiding or mitigating the catastrophic event. 

HBPR&A is the only vetted, tested, and validated method currently available that is proven to increase your situational awareness all while promoting Advanced Critical Thinking (ACT). This skillset will give you the ability to “read” human behavior. That means you can predict danger if you can read these pre-event cues and clusters. 

Whether you’re fighting on the battlefield, the boardroom or on the playground, our programs will give you the cognitive edge you need to be successful!

Greg Williams Top Ten Rules for predicting human behavior:

  1. Memory is fiction. Your brain cannot tell the difference between reality and fantasy during recall. The brain’s reward chemistry can be manipulated. This means that the more positive or negative emotion you attach to a memory, the easier that memory will be to recall in an emergency. This also means that you can ‘add’ human memories to overcome cognitive shortcomings through training.
  2. Training changes behaviors. This is the primary difference between training and education.
  3. Memory and emotion links make humans creatures of habit. They will repeat behaviors when given the choice. Being able to read human emotions gives the operator the ability to predict what will likely happen next.
  4. Humans don’t pay attention unless they have to or are forced to. Humans have evolved past being able to detect Predatory Looks and Mission Focus without training. This creates an environment where predatory looks and mission focus will allow us to find terrorists, criminals and predators hiding within and amongst us.
  5. Humans are predictable and their patterns are measurable, repeatable and can be analyzed and defined to satisfy a legal or professional standard. Humans are lazy and they follow simple patterns. Science proves that human behavior will likely repeat over and over again unless acted upon by external arousal or influence. When given a number of choices humans will follow the path of least resistance or the natural line of drift. We can use this knowledge to predict human behavior and capture criminals and terrorists traveling to or escaping from criminal events or attacks.
  6. The harder humans try to mask or hide their true behaviors, the more those behavioral traits will stick out. Deceit is a perfect example. Humans lie often yet they are terrible liars and those deceit cues can be detected when compared against the baseline.
  7. The human brain HATES divided attention. The more humans engage in polyphasic skills or multitasking the worse their performance becomes (including their cognitive performance!)
  8. Automaticity and the unconscious mind cause humans to telegraph their intentions unknowingly. This can give the trained operator a tactical edge over an opponent or human competition. Anything a human being touches will likely retain a trace of that humans’ influence (people, events, vehicles). This helps us detect, determine, connect and predict patterns to capture terrorists and criminals before they strike again. This allows us to detect subtle ‘signature’ cues to use as artifacts and evidence when prosecuting them or impeaching their testimony.
  9. Cognitive Illusions can be overcome with training. This allows us to determine where a sniper needs to be to shoot us, where an IED needs to be emplaced to kill us and how an Insider Threat will hide in order to betray us.
  10. Humans betray their affiliations unknowingly. This allows us to track humans and their relations within a group in order to determine their leadership and structure.
