The Science Behind PeopleMaps

“the best psychometric testing site I know of” Matt Randall

PeopleMaps Personality Questionnaire

Psychometric testing can measure knowledge, abilities, attitudes, and personality. A few years ago, PeopleMaps designed a fast, easy questionnaire to specifically measure personality. This unique personality test took PeopleMaps 18 months to develop and consists of only 10, four part questions which can be completed in under 8 minutes. Designed exclusively for personality centric psychometric testing on the web, it results in maximum accuracy. We use the same questionnaire, whatever the application.
