Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (16PFBehavior is the best predictor of performance.

The 16pf® Questionnaire (16 personality factors) is a reliable, validated tool with decades of data behind it. It is highly effective at revealing potential, confirming suitability, and identifying development needs. Unlike many personality assessments designed for use in business, the 16pf establishes a fully rounded picture of the whole individual, making it a vital roadmap for decision-makers.


The ProfileXT® (PXT) assessment measures how well an individual fits specific jobs in your organization. The “job matching” feature of the PXT is unique, and enables you to evaluate an individual relative to the qualities required to successfully perform in a specific job. It is used throughout the employee life cycle for selection, onboarding, managing, and strategic workforce planning.

Initially developed by Profiles International, this assessment reveals consistent, in-depth, and objective insight into an individual’s thinking and reasoning style, relevant behavioral traits, occupational interests, and matches to specific jobs in your organization. It helps your managers interview and select people who have the highest probability of being successful in a role, and provides practical recommendations for maximizing performance. It also gives your organization consistent language and metrics to support strategic workforce and succession planning, talent management, and reorganization efforts.
