Refine Your Personality Test Results by Creating "Baselines"

If you test everyone on your current team, you’ll probably find that your top employees share similar personality traits. Having an objective tool to identify and evaluate these traits allows you to establish a baseline profile of an "ideal" candidate so you know what to look for in a new hire. Here's how to use a "Baseline Profile" to find the ideal candidate for a job:

  1. Use our Personality Profile to test existing staff and measure the personality traits that make employees successful – or unsuccessful – in every job at your company.
  2. Next, identify the necessary traits for each job and create a baseline file representing an "ideal" range of personality types and traits for that role.
  3. Once new applicants are tested, you can quickly and easily compare their results against baselines to see if they have the personality traits necessary for the job.

The Hire Success Personality Profile is an adjective based self-assessment designed to identify key business-oriented personality characteristics and traits.

More consistency

A person's resume won't tell you if he or she is the best person for the job – and the interview may not be a very accurate measure, either. Our personality test provides a reliable, consistent way of evaluating each applicant before you conduct interviews.

What is personality testing for employment?

A personality test for employment is a valuable tool that allows you to gain insight into the character traits and behaviors of job candidates. Therefore, when you use a professionally developed personality test for hiring, it helps you identify personality traits – for instance, whether someone is introverted or extroverted, patient or impatient, etc.

Using a personality test for hiring employees can help you spot character traits you’ve identified as being important for a particular job. For instance, if you’ve determined that you need someone who’s detail-oriented for a job in accounting, you can use an employee personality test to help determine if candidates for the job have that trait.

What can a pre-employment personality test measure?

A personality test for a new hire examines aspects of personality which are relevant to the workplace and to the job you’re hiring for. For example, they can test character traits and behaviors such as:

  • How someone interacts with others, and whether they are more social and outgoing (extroverted) or quiet and reserved (introverted)
  • How a candidate handles work tasks – for if they prefer to remain focused on one task at a time or are comfortable handling many projects at once
  • Whether candidates are flexible and adaptable or are resistant to change in their work environment.
