GURGAON, India, June 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the years, psychometric assessments have become an integral part in several organizational processes across multiple industries. Mettl Personality Profiler has been designed to provide an efficient and useful measure of personality for workplace applications across geographies.
The Mettl Personality Profiler (MPP) is an innovative, evidence-based personality assessment that measures critical, work-relevant personality traits. It has been designed to be used as a hiring tool, to help employers gain access to otherwise hidden information about a job applicant, that is nonetheless critical in influencing their behavior at work. In short, the MPP measures work relevant personality, which predicts behavioral competencies, which in turn, lead to organizational outcomes of interest.
While developing MPP, Mettl scientists were inspired by the well-established "Big Five" model of personality, which uses 5 factors or broad personality trait categories – extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, openness to experience and emotional stability – to describe people.
The main value additions of the MPP Assessment are that it is less 'fakeable' The MPP uses a "semantic differential scale", which offers applicants two equally desirable options. Test takers are required to choose between two statements which mean opposite things but are worded in a manner that makes each of them sound desirable. It has been developed for the "work" context.
The MPP has been designed primarily to be used as a tool during hiring, as a pre-employment indicator of candidate quality. It has been developed according to global 'best practices', including key ways to keep it work-relevant.
The test has also been normed for various geographies including Latin America, South East Asia, Middle Eastern countries and Europe. Norms identify the below average, average, and above average performance on the test, and help the test user appropriately interpret a person's results and make decisions. This allows the test results to be more accurate and informative when comparing different individuals.
