What is Personality Profiling?
Personality Profiling is an alternative to a Psychometric Test. It displays a clear personality profile of an employee’s strengths, weaknesses, working style and how these all fit together to produce an effective team.
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.
The report allows personality profiling; introversion, extroversion, thinking and feeling. Whilst using colour to describe the candidate in order to bring the psychology to life. The report is easy-to-use and practical which everyone can understand.
The colour wheel in Personality Profiling
Once the test is complete, individuals are positioned on a colour wheel to show how they work most effectively. Individuals are categorised under one of 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 on the wheel to show the overall strengths and weaknesses within a team. The team wheel can be used to help everyone understand each other, adapt their behaviour accordingly to connect successfully and ultimately how best to communicate with each other.
With Personality Profiling you can
discover what kind of person a candidate is in ways that they wouldn't necessarily admit to in an interview
screen out candidates who are likely to be unsuitable for the job based on their strengths and weaknesses
provide management with guidance on maximising team effectiveness and communication

Unlike some Psychometric Test reports, the Personality Profile report can be understood by anyone. It’s presented in plain English.
