PeopleMaps was formed in 2000 by Anne Ellis and Martin Gibbons.
Anne Ellis successfully built a number of high-growth companies focused on people development, underpinned by psychological profiling.
Anne held a teaching fellowship in the psychology department at the University of Westminster, London, where she was part of the team that introduced the very first Masters in Business Psychology course at any UK university.
This was deemed a necessary programme because although there were classes in all applications of psychology; forensic, social, occupational, etc., there were none that seemed to deal with the actual interaction of people in the workplace. Nowadays this seems surprising since so much depends on how people behave, both as students and as employers/employees.
Martin’s first degree is in Applied Physics and along with a dedicated development team, he designed the software that runs PeopleMaps.com He has been studying Jungian Psychology, under Anne, for over twenty years and now leads many of the training courses.
PeopleMaps has revolutionised profiling by reducing the barriers to entry and making it accessible to anyone.
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.
Having determined the individual’s Jungian profile, PeopleMaps then produces a range of personality content pertaining to the preferred behaviour of that type.
Over the last twenty years PeopleMaps has built a vast library of personality content that is assembled to create hundreds of applications.
What’s special about PeopleMaps?
- PeopleMaps reports are written in plain English and are jargon-free (no labels), which means they can be used without any specialist training. This also removes human error from the process as no interpretation is required.
- Our unique questionnaire provides astonishingly accurate results with only 10 questions – and is only ever available online.
- The PeopleMaps Map is also unique and extremely powerful when it comes to helping people understand personality psychology.
