Measures the degree to which the individual is likely to be competitive and driven to be the best. This characteristic is important for jobs where the attainment of established goals and benchmarks are important (e.g., sales jobs). It is also important for jobs where there may be competition within departments or between coworkers and positions where the individual is expected to grow and advance to higher levels within the organization.
Measures the degree to which the individual is likely to assert him/herself, speak his/her mind and enjoy taking control or the lead in group situations. This characteristic is important for jobs where a strong personality is a plus (e.g., most sales jobs and managerial positions).
Measures the degree to which the individual is likely to be candid and accurate in his/her responses and is therefore not trying to outsmart the test in an effort to present him/herself in a more favorable light. The results of this scale should be used as a "red flag" to make you aware that some candidates may be trying to "fake" the test. For example, if a candidate scores High on the behavioral scales in this assessment and he/she scores Low on Candidness, there is the chance that he was able to elevate his/her scores on the assessment by trying to make him/herself look good. High behavioral scale scores that are accompanied by Low Candidness scores warrants some additional follow-up during the interview or reference checks to confirm the candidate's behavioral scale scores are in line with his/her previous work history.
Measures the degree to which the individual has the necessary interest, ability and disposition necessary to perform in a leadership capacity. Leadership is important for jobs that require the management of others and/or the coordination of the work of others to accomplish the organization's goals. Supervisors, managers and team or group leaders need leadership characteristics to be successful.
Measures the degree to which the individual is likely to be self assured, is not overly affected by what others think of him/her, and is confident in his/her decisions and actions. This characteristic is important for jobs that require independent thought, a self-starter attitude, sales and management.
Measures the degree to which the individual is likely to demonstrate patience and stress tolerance during challenging work-related situations. This characteristic is appropriate for jobs requiring interactions with customers, multitasking and jobs in fast paced organizations to name a few examples.
Measures the degree to which the individual has the ability and disposition to motivate others, relate well to employees, create a sense of unity among staff, and maintain high levels of employee satisfaction. Supervision skills are important for jobs that require overseeing and managing others.
