Personality Tests

Employment personality tests are a valuable tool for gaining insights into the interaction style, personality traits, and behavioral tendencies of individuals. They are designed to assess the aspects of a person’s personality that remain relatively stable throughout an individual’s lifetime. Properly designed personality tests are therefore meant to pinpoint permanent personality “traits” (for example, an individual’s level of extroversion) rather than temporary “states,” (for example, an individual’s current level of anger).

When given to prospective or current employees, personality tests are intended to assess job fit from a behavioral perspective. Does a candidate have behavioral traits that are statistically linked to success in this job? Is he/she likely to be happy or comfortable in this role? Research has also shown that personality tests can be especially useful in predicting job performance in those jobs that require frequent social interaction (with other employees, the public, or customers).

Skills Tests

While research has shown that cognitive aptitude tests are, by far, the best tool for predicting success in a role (other than being IN the role for a period of time), Criteria Corp also offers a selection of skill tests that measure basic competencies.
