Every personality questionnaire is based on extensive research into the typical role and person profile for the role type.

This process includes:

  • Reviewing a large number of job specifications for similar roles, to then collate together the most common competencies organisations look for. Thematic analysis is then carried out to group these together into the headings you see
  • Reviewing our own 30 years of experience of working on these role profiles and what role profiles we have found to link highly with job performance
  • Literature reviews of research which links certain personality traits to job performance in certain role types

For a more well-rounded overview of a candidate’s suitability for a role, we recommend combining a personality questionnaire with cognitive ability tests (such as a verbal  or numerical reasoning) along with a structured interview process.
