Opportunities and Challenges for Personality Assessment

The International Test Commission Colloquium 2021 is being held virtually
9 – 12 July 2021.

Details available here:


Quest Partnership’s MD, Max Choi is presenting a paper with Alan Howard and Johnny Mitchell as part of a symposium on
Opportunities and Challenges for Personality Assessment.

The paper will be presenting the research on MOSAIC Objective Personality Tasks (OPT’s).

It covers the rationale for this new approach and how it overcomes the issues of traditional self-report personality questionnaires i.e. potential faking/massaging of responses, and blind spots.

It covers the robustness and accuracy of the new approach (reliability and validity).

Then it talks about how we get the best from both worlds when this approach also includes a self-report questionnaire i.e. the latter informs us what the individual thinks they are like, whereas the objective personality task method assesses what the individual is really like.

So in cases where the results from the two approaches are somewhat different, then it provides very useful diagnostics to support personal development.



Six papers are being presented for this symposium which will run on Sunday 11th July 2021.

The conference should be of interest to those who like to keep abreast of developments in personality assessment and testing.
