Personality Test

A personality test is a tool designed to assess human personality. Personality tests are used to understand the characteristic patterns of feelings, thoughts and behaviors that people reveal across various situations. Such tests can be used to validate a clinical diagnosis, lead therapeutic interventions and help predict how individuals may react to and respond in different situations.

Personality assessments are valuable tools to measure one’s personality, which can help diagnose psychological problems or screen applicants for academic and employment purposes. HR professionals use personality tests to filter candidates who match a role’s requirement and organizational culture. Personality tests help predict candidates’ behaviors in various workplace situations, enabling recruiters to make informed and data-backed decisions about talent acquisition and development.

Personality assessments, as the name implies, gauge an individual’s positive and dark personality traits. Personality assessments are modeled after two broad schools of thought – trait theory and type theory. Type-based personality assessments characterize people according to certain qualitatively distinctive categories. These are more suitable for personal use. Trait-based personality assessments view personality as a function of multiple traits and measure the degree to which each trait is present in individuals. They are used for high-stake decisions in workplace settings.
