Psychometrics evolution: how testing has won over HR
“… the value pyschometrics give seems no longer to be in any question. “Psychometrics provide something that we as humans are not very good at – objective, unbiased, reliable and valid measures of peoples’ traits and characteristics,” says David Hughes, lecturer in organisational psychology at Manchester Business School. No-one, it seems, is arguing with this.”
The report provides scores and descriptions for the four DISC traits and places the test-taker into a specific ‘Pattern’ or Classification.
At DISC Test, we also ensure that the insights contained in the report are:
– clear and user-friendly
– related in easily understood, everyday language
– designed specifically to bring the right individuals together with the right organisations
This particular DISC Test and report was created in response to high levels of demand from recruiters, HR professionals, counsellors and coaches. They asked for a succinct report that could be interpreted without the need for training or accreditation.
We promise that the results of our test are as accurate as any other DISC Personality Test.
To see more clearly how DISC Tests can help us understand personality and
behaviour, psychologists, researchers and experts have devised what are known as
patterns. These Patterns are based on the relationship between the scores for the four
DISC areas measured … on the ‘shape’ of the profile.
The frequency of different patterns amongst the general population has also been
taken into consideration.
We have various methods of reporting – please email us for examples.
We are aware that organisations have different requirements so we offer a service whereby reports can be customised and/or co-branded.

Personality Predicts Job Success
Research indicates that personality traits predict success in areas such as employment:
- nearly 50% of newly hired employees will fail within 18 months.
- only 19% will achieve success.
In 89% of cases, this was due to the habitual behaviour – the personality – of the recruit. Only 11% of recruits fail due to a lack of ability or technical skill.
