Two Types of Personality Assessment Testing:
Attitude (Character) Testing
Without a doubt some people have bad attitudes. Attendance and timeliness seem to be the last things on their minds. They may feel entitled to steal from an employer because they are underpaid. They justify retaliatory behavior because if “you don’t stand stand up for yourself, no one else will.”
These type of “bad” attitudes can easily be measured by counter-productive behavior testing, also referred to as honesty and integrity or character testing. Success Performance Solutions provides two such tools: PeopleClues Attitude and Elite Character Profile test. Both measure three core attitude scales:
- conscientiousness (reliability)
- frustration tolerance (hostility).
Additional scales are available:
- drug-free attitude
- rules compliance
- sexual harassment
- computer misuse.
Attitude testing is completed online and takes between 5 and 12 minutes to complete, depending if the questions for the optional scales are used. Results are available as soon as an applicant submits a completed questionnaire.
Job Fit Personality Testing
It’s a fact. Some people fit into a job better than others. To find those people and ensure a good job fit, many of the most successful companies in the world use personality assessment tests. Selecting the right test for your company can be confusing. A helpful tip is to first decide whether you want to an assessment to “screen out” high-risk candidates or “select in” the best fit. Both versions fall under the broad category of job fit personality testing. The right test and best practice implementation can help reduce turnover, lower absenteeism, improve productivity, and decrease mistakes, accidents and injuries.
