Assessment of Personality Through Completing On-line Tasks
Quest Partnership’s Managing Director, Max Choi and Quest Assessments’ Director, Johnny Mitchell are giving a presentation entitled ‘Assessment of Personality Through Completing On-line Tasks’.
The AOSH event is being held in the BAWA Healthcare and Leisure Conference Centre. Thursday 21st November at the Avon Occupational Safety Health Group (AOSH) in Bristol.
They will be conveying that in critical roles like safety, the traditional way of assessing personality through the use of self-report questionnaires can be somewhat unreliable. This is often due to candidates responding in exaggerated ways and also due to poor self-insight. Just like when one goes to see an optician, the optician may ask you how your eyesight is, but they will not rely just on that. They will conduct an objective, accurate, and thorough assessment.
Max and Johnny argue that assessing personality should be no different.
First of all, they will explain what they have been doing. Research which is based on over 100 years’ of research into personality. Hence followed by their own recent research to develop the Mosaic objective personality tasks. Therefore, these enable the direct measurement of personality. They are working on a range of reports including a Personality for Safety Report.
