Motivation Tests – Values based personality tests

Personality tests measure values – as well as job specific constructs or competencies. As with a situational judgement based design, values based personality tests can serve as a highly effective realistic job preview, or self-selection tool.P skills such as judgement/decision-making and interpersonal effectiveness can be defined of values and/or personality traits.

In fact, in any context there is invariably a complex interplay between personality and values. This makes it particularly important to pay attention to selection and developmental contexts, when determining the suitability of different psychometric tools. Personality describes natural behaviours whereas values relate to a choice that must be made between alternative courses of action.

In a sense, for most people, values are what we feel that we ought to do. Unlike many personality traits there are many values that conflict directly with each other and so cannot be held concurrently. Values impact goal content whereas personality traits impact the efforts that individuals make towards their goals.
