What psychology is applied?

The psychological profiler underpinning PeopleMaps is a Jungian system designed to measure an individual’s psychological make-up.

Jung’s bi-polar scales measure the attitudes of introversion and extraversion, together with the rational preferences of thinking and feeling and the irrational preferences of sensing and intuition. These are combined to arrive at the psychological profile or type.

Software As A service

PeopleMaps provides Software As A Service, so you have no software to download, install or maintain. This further reduces the cost of ownership for clients. So an upgrade for one client, is an upgrade for all clients.

Dear Martin,

I wanted to take a moment to tell you how happy we are with our Peoplemap experience.  The customized assessments give us incredible insight when working with our clients.

Recently, while reviewing an assessment with a client, he was astonished at how we could know so much about his personality from the information he entered.  This gave me, and my company immediate credibility and a rapport with the customer.

The information we collect helps us immensely when trying to place our clients. I look forward to continuing to grow our relationship as we grow our company.  Thank you again for an outstanding tool and all of your great support.

The Entrepreneur Option


PeopleMaps also participated in a year long program with The National Skills Academy Skills For Care where we looked at how PeopleMaps Personality Profiling could help with recruitment and retention within the care sector, which is one of the largest employers within the UK.

Thousands of candidates were put through the system and over 100 employers participated in the program. PeopleMaps developed personality reports specifically for the Care Sector and the feedback and results were exceptionally good. PeopleMaps maybe the only profiling provider to have personality reports designed and tested specifically for the care sector.
