Psychometric Testing with Personality
PeopleMaps builds professional personality centric psychometric testing applications for individuals and business.
Personality testing is a sub-category of psychometric testing, though the words personality testing and psychometric testing are often used¬†interchangeably. People say psychometric testing but they mean personality testing.
Psychometric testing has been around since the 1950′s and much of it is based on the research of Carl Jung.
You can use Psychometric testing for all manner of things. In fact wherever you find people you will find a need to understand the people better.
Through a deeper understanding of self and others it is possible to resolve many of the conflicts we face. Whether these be private one-to-one conflicts with a family member or colleague or whether they are conflicts of state, an understanding of personality will help.
Personality Profiling Psychometric Applications
PeopleMaps combines the psychology of personality profiling with internet technology to produce a variety of products. Some are ready made and accessible to you via this site. Others are developed with partners and delivered directly by them. Imagine your digital material, truly personalised and delivered online. PeopleMaps personalises content – beyond the usual demographics, through psychometric testing.
The PeopleMaps Map
PeopleMaps psychometric testing is based on profiling your personality type and your personality type can be represented by where you sit on the PeopleMaps Map. This unique visual system has been designed to make it easy to understand your personality in relation to others.
By using a map instead of a label, we avoid pigeonholing you or boxing you in. You have a preferred behaviour but you can move about the map if you want to.
The PeopleMaps Compass
Another visual representation of your personality type, the PeopleMaps Compass takes it down to a deeper level – looking at your likely behaviour in one particular area. The Compass appears on most personality reports created for PeopleMaps’ psychometric testing applications for staff recruitment and development.
The PeopleMaps Questionnaire
This unique personality questionnaire has taken many years to develop and refine. There are two versions. a 5Q and a 10Q. It¬†consists of only 5 (or 10), four part questions which can be completed in under 3 to 8 minutes. Designed exclusively for personality centric psychometric testing on the web, it results in maximum accuracy in the shortest possible time.
To be accurate online you need to offer users a quick questionnaire as candidate fatigue will set in quicker than usual. Where an individual may spend 40 mins completing a paper based questionnaire, they will not spend 40 minutes online doing the same.
The theory underpinning PeopleMaps personality profiling comes from the work of Carl Jung, the Swiss psychologist who believed every individual was unique. His theory focuses on the cognitive aspects of personality i.e. how people think and take on board information to make their decisions and sense of the world. This is the psychological theory that other renowned profilers including the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) are based on.
