Personality Metrics Project
This is a self assessment tool based on the 7GF Personality Model derived from the Big 5 Personality Factors. 7GF Occupational Assessment Tool is designed to provide information on the aspects of an individual’s behavioural style that will impact on their performance of competencies at work. It questions 33 specific personality characteristics which support performance on key job competencies critical at different business settings. It can be used to provide input to selection, team building, leadership development, coaching and mentoring initiatives.
The test is adaptive. The number of questions answered in order to complete the test will vary from 90 to 120, depending on the responses. Questions are picked from a large inventory, and the inventory is updated continuously as the number of respondents increase.
This is a general purpose self-assessment tool designed in line with MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) Step II Model. Although the model of MBTI has been found scientifically insufficient by the academic world; it is the most famous and most practiced assessment tool due its simplicity. MBTI’s model is based on the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung and it questions 4 personality characteristics, each of which has 2 facets. MBTI Step II is an extended version of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and it questions 20 traits (sub-characteristics) in order to provide additional depth and clarification within each of the 4 original MBTI preference pairs.

This is a project aiming to provide professional quality assessment tools for free to everybody.
Individuals can use these tools to become more effective in their private and work lives. For example, when making a difficult choice in selecting the right job or making a move in a relationship or selecting an academic domain.
These assessment tools can also be employed as a decision support system by professionals in their recruitment, coaching or mentoring endeavors.
As you may know, the science of human behaviour is far from perfect; and many new research initiatives are going on in order to verify and expand existing knowledge base. I am trying to update these tools to reflect new findings in relevant research. Additionally results that are being gathered from new users are used anonymously to enhance the tools further.
These tools didn’t pass through a full-fledge scientific validation process; however I believe you will find them very useful. I offer no warranty or guarantee that the information and suggestions offered through these tools will address or correct any specific issue or concern.
If you have any comments or can make any contributions which you think can enrich the tool portfolio here, please get in touch with me via the contact page.
