Personality: it’s what makes you, you

Analysing the personalities of different people can benefit your business in many ways.

They say a leopard never changes its spots

For most people, this is spot on. Personality remains relatively consistent throughout a person’s life. As a result, it can be reliably measured to help you make predictions about potential new employees’ behaviour at work.

A personality assessment can shed light on both sides of the coin: the good and the not-so-good. You might:

  • identify a characteristic that makes one applicant stand out from the crowd
  • discover an area that will need further development to help them succeed in a particular role.

Either way, you’re now one step closer to offering that job to the most appropriate person.

You can’t train personality

Measure your final candidates’ behaviours for any industry or position.


The 16PF reveals a great deal of useful information about anyone who takes it, making it an excellent comparison tool for hiring managers and recruiters during the final stages of the selection process.

After helping you make an informed decision, the 16PF can also guide you in managing your new employee. With in-depth understanding of their quirks and qualities, you are in a better position to:

  • guide and improve their job performance
  • help them achieve a high level of productivity
  • improve their job satisfaction
  • build cohesion between them, yourself, and the rest of your team.

Imagine what your staff could accomplish if you achieved all of the above with every single employee!

Knowledge of your candidates’ personalities is invaluable

Rigorous assessment

The assessment provides detailed reports that accurately identify each candidate’s personality factors.


The 16PF includes 170 multiple-choice questions that provide an impressively comprehensive assessment of each person’s personality factors. The assessment is based on a personality model that incorporates 16 primary factors that can be grouped into five global factors of:

  • relating to others
  • influence and collaboration
  • thinking style
  • structure and flexibility
  • management of pressure.

What does it all mean?

Each global factor relates to how a candidate behaves naturally and how they react to external stimuli.


Relating to others
Does the person spend more time and energy investing in their interpersonal relationships or do they prefer spending time alone and working independently?

Influence and collaboration
In terms of influencing their environment, is the person more forceful, assertive and independent, or more cooperative and collaborative?

Thinking style
Does the person tend to think in an intuitive, creative way or a more objective, realistic way?

Structure and flexibility
Is the person more likely to show self-discipline and self-control, or do they have a more unrestrained, flexible approach?

Management of pressure
What is the person’s style when it comes to coping with pressure, disappointments, challenges, setbacks and stress?

Reliable results, every time

12-month no re-sit policy.


We don’t allow candidates to sit the same test within 12 months, so no one has the advantage of practicing. This means you can be sure the results from every candidate are accurate and reliable.
