What is a Personality Assessment?

Have you ever wondered why you are the way you are? Personality assessments will give you a better grasp on what it means to be you as well as how you think, feel and interpret the world. Perhaps most importantly, these assessments shed light on why you are the way you are and how that can use your qualities to your advantage in the world. Many workplaces now distribute various forms of personality assessments in order for the leadership to better understand their teams. 

Popular examples of these assessments include the Myers-Briggs test, the Big Five personality test and Enneagram test.

The Myers-Briggs personality test uses four dichotomies – extraversion/introversion, sensing/intuition, thinking/feeling and judging/perceiving – to group participants into one of 16 different personality types. The Enneagram assessment sorts participants into one of nine personality types based on their differences in thinking, handling and feeling. The Big Five personality test scores respondents high, low or somewhere between based on five personality traits – openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. 

One important note about all personality assessments – there are no incorrect answers, and there certainly are no “right” or “wrong” personality types. Everyone has their own unique qualities, and that’s what makes you, well, you! The goal of these tests is to provide insights and understanding into who you are so you can thrive in the workplace and in life in general.

Personality Assessment Questions

Personality assessment

There are several types of personality tests and personality test questions used by employers to measure the ‘personality fit’ of job seekers. Most personality test types fit into 3 groups:

  1. 1. Statement-based personality test questions
    The most common type of personality test questions is statement-based ones. In this type of question, you receive a list of statements and are asked to state the extent to which you agree or disagree with each statement.
    For example, you might receive the following statement: ‘I am confident that work accidents won’t happen to me’. You will then be asked to state the extent to which you agree with this statement on a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 is ‘strongly disagree’, and 5 is ‘strongly agree’.
  2. 2. Forced-choice personality test questions
    This type of personality test question is somewhat less common than the statement-based one. In this type of question, you receive a list of 3 or 4 adjectives or statements. You are then asked to rank them from the one that is the most like you to the one that is the least like you.
    For example, you might receive the following 3 adjectives: ‘friendly’, ‘careful’ and ‘responsible’. The challenge of this type of question is that sometimes all adjectives are equally desirable for the job you are applying for.
  3. 3. Open-ended personality test questions
    This type of personality test question is less common, but it still important to be aware of it in case your personality test has such questions. In this type, you will have a list of open personality-based questions trying to measure your tendencies and preferences based on your written response.
    For example, you could be asked: ‘If I were to ask some of your good friends, how would they describe your social skills?
