Personality testing in colleges
Lately, College Boards and Universities alike have been using personality testing to develop a better understanding of the candidates they are considering for President. However, as Patrick Phillips, chairman of the Presbyterian College Board of Trustees said, “It is not a tool that made the decisions for us. It helped us validate our decision.” Personality assessments, such as the Achiever, can be used to determine whether a candidate truly has the ability to succeed in a specific environment or whether they are simply good interviewers. Most individuals considered for College President and even top executives for companies are taught throughout school and work experience how to act in an interview and even how to turn weaknesses into a positive when they’re are brought to light. Therefore, tools such as the Achiever can be used to identify an individual’s personality traits as they relate to the job.
While most personality/job-related assessments only measure the personality aspects of an individual, the Achiever measures 10 Behavioral Traits as well as 6 Mental Aptitudes. Although taking into account work and educational experience is still important, these tools can provide an objective, direct look at a person’s true personality and brain power – things that may not be brought out in an Academy-Award winning interview.
