Tessera is accredited to carry out psychometric analysis
using a range of methods, including the Myers Briggs Type Indicator®
and the California Psychological Inventory.
The MBTI is the world's most widely used instrument for understanding
personality differences and provides a framework that is both reliable
and valid as well as constructive and positive in its outlook. The CPI
is the most widely used personality instrument for recruitment in North
America and is making in-roads in Europe as the premier questionnaire
for predicting behaviour in professional settings.
While the MBTI provides insight into an individual's view of their strengths
and development needs, the CPI reveals how others may perceive them
based on measurement of 20 personality traits. By combining the results
of the MBTI and CPI we can accurately predict how an individual is likely
to behave in a professional setting and assess the kind of role they
may be best suited for.
|Tessera advocates using the results of the CPI and the MBTI in conjunction
with a number of other selection methods. As these psychometric questionnaires
are indicators of personality and behaviour, any conclusions are verified
by other means in the selection process.
The purpose of administering these questionnaires is to provide an objective
means for assessing candidates, which offers substantial comparative
and normative research and related data.
