How was the jobworX Personality Assessment created?

The questions that make up the jobworX Personality Assessment come from well studied questionnaires of workplace personality and have been used in many studies of workplace personality. jobworX uses these questions to build a robust Personality Vector, which summarizes a candidate’s workplace personality along seven main dimensions: Teamwork, Leadership, Creativity, Work Hyperfocus, Competitiveness, Interpersonal Dynamics, and Friendliness. We conducted our own internal studies of hundreds of individuals to test the reliability of our factors. Reliability gives us a statistical description of the stability of the personality factors. In addition to being reliable, our testing also showed that the jobworX Personality Assessment is good at telling the differences between people taking the test, ensuring that the test is accurate. Using this data, we were able to create a short set of questions that could maximize the reliability and accuracy of an individual's workplace personality factors, while taking only a few minutes to fill out.

How does the Personality Assessment work?

The Personality Assessment is standardized across all candidates so that accurate profiles can be calculated. Scores are not considered ‘high’ or ‘low’ because one is good or bad. Candidates are given scores on the different Personality Factors based on averages taken from hundreds of people who have already taken the personality test. Scores are then either compared to the average for that type of role or the personality profile of the ‘ideal candidate’ as described by the hiring manager. The Personality Assessment takes between three and five minutes to complete. Candidates are encouraged to go with the first answer that feels right, and to answer the questions as accurately and quickly as possible.
