Psychometric Profiling

We provide a full range of executive-level profile assessment

TI* Personality Profile Assessment (PPA test) is a popular personality test which employers/recruiters administer to evaluate candidates’ character traits. This psychometric profiling provides a more thorough way to determine whether candidates will be a proper fit for the role.

The PPA test assesses one’s choice of adjectives, each of which reflects their behavioural tendencies and personality in a workplace setting that wouldn’t necessarily be shown during a job interview.

The TI Profile Assessment (PPA test) takes up to fifteen minutes to complete. The PPA test will build a personal profile to portray how four traits, Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance rank within the personality to form a person’s unique character.

Key * TI is Thomas International
