Psychometrics |
Embrace Your YOUniqueness

2 Sessions | £200

We define personality as the unique combination of patterns that influence behaviour, thought, motivation, and emotion in a human being. Personality is generally described as being made up the characteristic patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that make a person unique. In other words, it's what makes you so unique. A good measure is valid and predictive and enables us to link test scores to actual behaviours. Measuring and understanding personality is about having expectations about how people behave, helping us make sense of the world, and summarising what a person is like. We find a preoccupation with interests and motivations, or with beliefs, values and preferences. 

The 1-2-1 Introductory Session is at NO Cost!

What Is a Personality Assessment?

Personality assessments try to understand how people’s answers to the ‘test’ reveal aspects of what makes them who they are, and how we can use this information to predict their performance in non-test environments. It is about how they typically come across. Personality questionnaires are used to help people make appropriate vocational choices and adjustments and to facilitate the efficient running of organisations by the appropriate use of individuals’ assets and abilities.

What Is Validity?

The validity of a psychometric test is not straightforward, as the constructs being measured are abstract. As Kline (1993) has noted, “a test is said to be valid if it measures what it claims to measure”. A test cannot be more valid than it is reliable, because if it is not consistently measuring a construct it cannot be consistently measuring the construct it was developed to assess. Thus a test's reliability is typically assessed before the question of its validity is addressed.

  • The themes by which we judge others are the themes that are of greatest importance to us.
