Self-awareness is essential to success. Understand your most powerful behavioral drivers, and how to harness them for ultimate achievement.
Developed by psychologist William Moulton Marston, the DISC assessment examines how an individual ranks in the four areas of behavior – Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness. Everyone has these four characteristics, but the strength of each varies depending on the person. Designed for both individuals who want to identify and maximize their strengths and motivators, and organizations looking to integrate high-performance teams. The assessment can provide a common language that people can use to understand themselves and others.
DiSC is non-judgmental personality and behavioral assessment used by more than one million people every year to improve teamwork, communication, and productivity.
The Big Five personality traits, also known as the OCEAN model, is a suggested taxonomy, or grouping, for personality traits,developed from the 1980s onwards in psychological trait theory. When factor analysis (a statistical technique) is applied to personality survey data, it reveals semantic associations: some words used to describe aspects of personality are often applied to the same person. For example, someone described as conscientious is more likely to be described as "always prepared" rather than "messy". These associations suggest five broad dimensions used in common language to describe the human personality, temperament and psyche.
The theory identifies five factors:
- openness to experience (inventive/curious vs. consistent/cautious)
- conscientiousness (efficient/organized vs. extravagant/careless)
- extraversion (outgoing/energetic vs. solitary/reserved)
- agreeableness (friendly/compassionate vs. critical/rational)
- neuroticism (sensitive/nervous vs. resilient/confident).
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a self-report inventory designed to identify a person's personality type, strengths, and preferences, indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. The questionnaire was developed by Isabel Myers and her mother Katherine Briggs based on their work with Carl Jung's theory of personality types.
The test attempts to assign four categories: introversion or extraversion, sensing or intuition, thinking or feeling, judging or perceiving. One letter from each category is taken to produce a four-letter test result, like "INFJ" or "ENFP".
Today, the MBTI inventory is one of the most widely used psychological instruments in the world.
16 Personality Factor
The Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (16PF) is a self-report personality test developed over several decades of empirical research by Raymond B. Cattell, Maurice Tatsuoka and Herbert Eber. The 16PF can provide information relevant to the individual’s capacity for insight, self-esteem, cognitive style, internalization of standards, openness to change, capacity for empathy, level of interpersonal trust, quality of attachments, interpersonal needs, attitude toward authority, reaction toward dynamics of power, frustration tolerance, and coping style.
The 16pf® Questionnaire (16 personality factors) is a reliable, validated tool with decades of data behind it. It is highly effective at revealing potential, confirming suitability, and identifying development needs. Unlike many personality assessments designed for use in business, the 16pf establishes a fully-rounded picture of the whole individual, making it a vital roadmap for decision makers.
Remote Associates Test (RAT)
The Remote Associates Test (RAT) is a test of creative potential, specifically the ability to make associations. High RAT test scorers are also being shown as more productive when brainstorming solutions to complex problems. It was developed by Martha Mednick in 1962 and has since been considered as a valid measure of creativity. Each RAT question presents three cue words that are linked by a fourth word, which is the correct answer.
Emotional agility is an individual's ability to experience their thoughts and emotions and events in a way that doesn't drive them in negative ways, but instead encourages them to reveal the best of themselves.
Emotional agility is a revolutionary, science-based approach that allows us to navigate life's twists and turns with self-acceptance, clear-sightedness, and an open mind. Renowned psychologist Susan David developed this concept after studying emotions, happiness, and achievement for more than twenty years.
