This is a project aiming to build professional quality assessment tools and make them accessible for everybody for free. It seeded from a simple WordPress plugin called PTest, which I developed for delivering ipsative tests, in 2011. Later I developed a platform from scratch in 2013 and served the first assessment tool on this platform through personalitymetrics.com domain. Unfortunately, I couldn’t afford the time to maintain and develop it further.
You can access to 2 of the assessment tools from this page. These tools didn’t pass through a full-fledge scientific validation process; however I believe you will find them very useful. I offer no warranty or guarantee that the information and suggestions offered through these tools will address or correct any specific issue or concern.
If you have any comments or can make any contributions which you think can enrich the tool portfolio here, please get in touch with me via the contact page.
Tool 1: PM – Occupational
This is a self assessment tool based on a model l derived from the Big 5 Personality Factors. The tool is designed to provide information on the aspects of an individual’s behavioural style that will impact on their performance of competencies at work. It questions 33 specific personality characteristics which support performance on key job competencies critical at different business settings. It can be used to provide input to selection, team building, leadership development, coaching and mentoring initiatives.
The assessment process is adaptive. The number of questions answered in order to complete the assessment will vary from 90 to 120, depending on the responses. Questions are picked from a large inventory, and the inventory is updated as the number of respondents increase.
Due to technical reasons, it is necessary to create an account on the assessment platform.
Tool 2: MBTI – General
This is a general purpose self-assessment tool designed in line with MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) Step II Model. Although the model of MBTI has been found scientifically insufficient by the academic world; it is the most famous and most practiced assessment tool due its simplicity. MBTI’s model is based on the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung and it questions 4 personality characteristics, each of which has 2 facets. MBTI Step II is an extended version of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and it questions 20 traits (sub-characteristics) in order to provide additional depth and clarification within each of the 4 original MBTI preference pairs.
