Industry/Use Case


    The following e-book gives you a brief account of Mettl’s framework. Our products find inspiration through the Five Factor Model (FFM) or the Big Five Personality Traits known for consistency and validity. It builds on a foundation that people are most efficiently described based on their standing on five broad personality traits, i.e. openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness and neuroticism.

    Let us know walk you through the various kinds of products that Mettl uses in order to assess people:

    1. Mettl Personality Inventory (MPI)

    MPI is an innovative evidence-based assessment which measures personality traits relevant to critical components of work. The principle behind the test aims to predict behavioral competencies that lead to organizational, or better yet - business outcomes.

    How does it work:

    The MPI consists of 80 questions and uses Likert Scale to measure positive or negative responses with respect to a statement. The option of neither ‘agree’ nor ‘disagree’ is not available to the candidate. The e-book further delves deeper into distortions caused by Likert Scale like central tendency bias, acquiescence bias and social desirability bias.

    Advantages of using Mettle Personality Inventory:

    The FFM has shown to predict important job-related outcomes such as performance, potential to burnout, trainability, and job satisfaction. MPI provides reports designed to facilitate hiring decisions for influencers within the organization. Additionally, it can be customized as per client’s need.

    2. Mettl Personality Profiler (MPP)

    The Mettl Personality Profiler is a tool developed in succession with the MPI, consisting of 86 questions across the Five Factor Model. It utilizes the Semantic Differential (SD) scale which works on the measurement of two polar objectives like good-evil, valuable-worthless, etc. Its key features and functionality remain inherently similar to that of MPI.

    Advantages of using Mettl Personality Profiler:

    Using Semantic Differential scale, MPI reduces the problem of respondent either faking food or bad by offering to help a candidate complete a statement with two options along with a neutral or balanced option. Additionally, a semantic differential response format may offer alternatives to negations for reducing much of the bias.

    3. Mettl Sales Profiler (MSP)

    MSP provides a competency-based framework best utilized to build sales teams. It measures for team cohesiveness ensuring that the performs with absolute efficiency. This is done via the identification of critical cognitive and behavioral competencies unique to your organizational requirements.
