Character DNA, a psychometric test

What Does a Psychometric Test Measure?

Psychometric questions seek to uncover how different personality profiles deal with situations in day-to-day work or life, or more specific things such as communication. Character DNA allows you to analyse four elements of personality; introversion, extraversion, thinking and feeling, whilst using colour to describe them in order to bring the psychology to life and give an easy-to-use, practical, everyday application that everyone can understand.

When to use Psychometric Testing?

Personality profiling is ideal during the recruitment process. Get those candidates successful enough to make it to the interview stage, to complete a Character DNA questionnaire to help you understand what kind of person they are in ways that they wouldn’t necessarily admit to in an interview. You can tailor your interview questions around the results of the test.

Or utilise psychometric testing to help provide your management teams with clear guidance on how to maximise their teams effectiveness and communication.

Psychometric Test Colour Wheel

The Colour Wheel

Individuals are positioned on the Character DNA ‘wheel’ to show how they work most effectively. Individuals are categorised under one of the four colours, so you can easily identify their personality type and how it drives their behaviour.

If a whole team were to complete the profile, their results can be displayed in the graphical analysis as a whole to show the overall strengths and weaknesses within a team. Utilise the team wheel to help everyone within understand others, adapt their behaviour accordingly to connect successfully and ultimately how best to communicate with each other.

“When you need to recruit the right person to fill a particular role, or, improve communication within a struggling team, personality profiling through psychometric testing is indispensable.”
