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.

What is a Personality Test?

The most common response by visitors reading their report is “spooky!”. Because we’re not scary, we’re pretty sure this means its accurate 😉 The psychology we use to formulate the questionnaire  and the personality profiles is based on the work of Carl G Jung, like some other common profilers such as the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).
