How to Interpret the Report?
When interpreting the results, it is important to remember that the scores are not good or bad, only more or less appropriate to certain types of work. Since the results are based on one's own view of behavior, the accuracy of the results depends upon both honesty and self-awareness while taking the test. 

This assessment measures work-relevant personality traits that might be manifested in work behaviour and therefore influence success on the job. To best use this report:

1. Review the overall recommendation first. Based on your need, you might want to prioritize candidates who are ‘recommended', followed by those who are ‘cautiously recommended’.
2. If you’re choosing among different candidates within the same band of recommendation, review the competencies’ results. Focus on the competencies you believe are critical for success in the role you’re hiring for, and use those scores to help you prioritize which candidates to select for the next step.
3. Remember: This assessment is just one piece of the puzzle. While hiring, it is recommended that you review other information as well – functional and job knowledge, background and past behaviour (e.g. using structured behavioural interviews), reference checks, etc. in addition to the personality assessment.
4.Use of Response Styles for Recruitment/Selection: The ideal response style is “Genuine” and it is recommended for further analysis. However, if any candidate’s response style displays Social Desirability, he/she needs to be considered with caution.
We do not recommend candidates who display Extreme Responding/Central Tendency/Careless Responding as they indicate that the candidate has not attempted the assessments in the desired manner, and that interferes with an understanding of his/her personality since it would not evoke genuine responses from the candidate's answers. This in turn is expected to interfere with the proceeding decisions, so the candidate may be considered for a re-test. Such cases are usually not considered for a statistical/detailed analysis of scores if required further.
Response Style: Extreme Responding

Explanation of response style:

Genuine: No concerns or red flags just based on response style of candidate.

Social Desirability: If more than 75% of the questions are answered in a manner that indicates an attempt to appear in a falsely positive light or seem ‘socially desirable’.

Extreme Responding: If more than 75% of the questions are answered in a manner that indicates that an individual agrees with the statements at the lower and higher end consistently.

Central Tendency: If the middle response (‘neutral’) is selected more than 30% of the time.

Careless Responding: If more than 95% of the responses selected are from the same direction (i.e. if the candidate selected ‘most like me’ or ‘like me’ from the right-side statement or from the left-side statement alone).
