A personality test is frequently used in the recruitment process, to find out how your potential co-worker interacts with others and what makes him/her tick.
What is a personality?
A characteristic pattern of thoughts, feelings and unique behaviours. One can also assume that personality is something that defines us as people through life. When we work with people, it is therefore interesting to know how the person reasons in different situations and if their philosophy rhymes well with the corporate culture. A personality test can be an important piece of the puzzle in an overall picture of the candidate.
The test is based on the Five Factor Model, which is the most influential personality theory, developed by team of psychologists and researchers including Paul Costa and Robert McCrae. The model is based on hypothetical questions and answers that place the test person on a scale with two extremes in five different personality dimensions. Together, the answers form the basis of a personality.
The test measures the following five dimensions and opposites:
Neurotic trait – Emotionally stability: Emotional stability, tendency for anxiety and stress sensitivity
Extrovert trait – Introvert trait: Level of extroversion/introversion and closeness with an interest in the theoretical and abstract
Openness to new experiences – Disinterest: How interested the person is in new ideas, activities and values versus conservative, conventional thinking
Kindness / warmth – Rejection / unpleasantness: Shows a person’s helpfulness, willingness to cooperate and compassion for others
Conscientiousness – Easiness: How thorough, goal-oriented, disciplined and orderly the person is and prone to negligence
