Attitudes and Beliefs Reveal Significant Short-Term Success Factors
In addition to measuring the seven most predictive personality traits, our assessments also measure how an individual was thinking and feeling around the time they completed the assessment. These attitudes and beliefs, although not predictive, because they change based on a person’s situation, do provide insights for hiring managers into the self-confidence and stress-levels of an individual and their “present state” which could have implications for their “on the job performance”.
The attitudes and beliefs reported in our assessments include:
- Self-Confidence—the degree to which individuals feel they are in control of life and able to influence the events and situations they face on a daily basis.
- Lifestyle Management—how well individuals are dealing with the demands of life and the things that may create stress for them.
- Commitment Reluctance—a measure of a individuals’ commitment to holding themselves and others accountable.
- Call Reluctance—a measure of a person’s ability to manage rejection.
- Listening Style—how well an individual uses active listening techniques to understand and retain what others are saying.
- Uncertainty Indicator—measures whether an individual answered the attitudes and beliefs section in an honest or socially desirable way.
Bottom line: Although they are not predictive over the long term, the attitudes and beliefs measured by our assessments are quite valuable. They offer important information about factors that could be affecting the individual in the present and immediate future.
