It can come as a bit of a surprise if a candidate or a client disagrees with something in their personality report. The initial reaction is often, “the report must be wrong or the system must be broken somewhere.”
So can it happen? Will someone disagree with something in their report?
In a word “yes”. Of course, they will.
There are several reasons for this. The first thing to remember is that personality behaves more like a wave than a digital point. Profiling systems pick points on the curve, yet most of us will be at one side of the point or the other.
