JTI - Jung Type Indicator


For Adults and Young People 15+

An alternative to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, the JTI assesses personality within Carl Jung’s framework of Psychological Type. Jung’s model of Psychological Type identifies dimensions of preference: Extraversion vs Introversion (EI), Thinking vs Feeling (TF) and Sensing vs Intuiting (SN). The fourth dimension, Judging vs Perceiving (JP), identifies a person’s dominant preference towards the world as either a judging attitude (T or F) or a perceiving attitude (S or N).

Measures a person’s preferences and how they impact on areas including thinking style, interpersonal styles and problem-solving, the JTI is particularly effective for personal development, enhancing communication, counselling, guidance and team building. With its emphasis on the strengths and developmental challenges of each Psychological Type, Jung’s theory of personality constitutes an essential component of many training and development programmes.

Timing 10 minutes plus administration time. Respondent reports for individual and team development.

It consists of three tests: Mechanical Reasoning, Spatial Reasoning and Visual Acuity. Can be integrated with GRT2 to provide a fully integrated aptitude profile and narrative report. More than a measure of technical knowledge, TTB2 identifies potential to grasp technical concepts and put them to practical use, making it an essential assessment tool for anyone being considered for roles where technical ability is emphasised.

Mechanical Reasoning measures the ability to understand mechanical concepts and physical principles in operation. The items have been selected from a wide range of areas (including optics, electrics, fluids and mechanics) so users can be confident that they are measuring a broad range of mechanical reasoning ability.

Spatial Reasoning measures spatial ability through items that assess the ability to visualise patterns in three dimensions and match three-dimensional objects to two-dimensional patterns. The items have been selected to represent a wide range of shapes e.g. cubes, pyramids, cones, rhomboids and an innovative variety of other multi-faceted shapes. Users can be confident they are measuring a broad range of spatial/diagrammatic ability.

Values & Motives


VMI – Values & Motives Inventory


For Adults and Young People 15+

Understanding a person’s natural energies and drives helps identify both where they are likely to gain most satisfaction and make the greatest contribution. VMI profiles an individual’s motivating forces to determine the amount of energy or effort they are likely to expend in different activities. It can be used on its own or as part of an assessment battery for selection, development, guidance or team building.

VMI provides a focussed, reliable and comprehensive assessment of personal values and motives. A measure of 12 factors of motivation grouped into 3 areas – interpersonal (values which influence an individual’s approach to relationships with others), extrinsic (values which influence behaviour in the workplace) and intrinsic (values relating to personal beliefs and attitudes which guide an individual’s approach to everyday problems).

Written in a style which makes them ideal to give directly to the respondent.

Timing 20 minutes plus administration time



WAI – Work Attitude Inventory


A measure of an individual’s personal integrity and ethics in a work context. It is designed to help reduce counter productive work behaviours that can result in shrinkage etc. It measures attitudes and behaviours that are difficult to elicit using other methods. WAI can be used on its own or as part of a battery of work relevant assessments. Detailed innovative and group reports can be generated. Use with adults with a minimum of secondary/high school education. Use for screening, selection, audit and benchmarking.

Measures of integrity have consistently been shown to be good predictors of work-based performance across a range of roles and settings. Attitudes towards integrity have been found not only to predict honesty at work, but also to predict compliance with organisational rules systems and procedures, adherence to safety protocols, risk avoidance, etc. Having a well-defined sense of personal integrity, and a clear commitment to high ethical standards, has also been shown to be correlated with global ratings of work performance across many jobs. Candidates' ability levels may influence their understanding of what constitutes integrity and probity in any given working environment, as might their level of work specific knowledge and skills. It is therefore important to consider such factors when interpreting WAI results. Aptitude tests can be used to assess ability, and work specific knowledge and skills can be assessed through job sample tests and assessment centre exercises. It should be noted that while integrity is relevant to a broad range of jobs, a tendency to set oneself high ethical standards and to have a strong sense of allegiance to accepted codes of conduct, is often associated with a lack of expediency and, in the most extreme circumstances may result in the person being ridged and inflexible. Therefore the WAI may not be an appropriate screening tool for roles which require the incumbent to respond to situations in a flexible and expedient manner, and quickly grasp opportunities as they arise.

Please Note: The WAI does not assess whether someone is, or is not, honest. Rather it assesses that person’s attitude towards honesty. While attitudes are known to be highly predictive of behaviour, they are only one of the many factors which influence behaviour. Other factors which influence behaviour are social/cultural norms, situational contexts, etc. When used for selection and assessment, the significance of the WAI results should be interpreted alongside information gained from other assessment methods and with reference to the employment context.

To provide a more comprehensive view of this individual you may wish to look at the following assessments: Fifteen Factor Questionnaire Plus (15FQ+), Values and Motives Inventory (VMI) General Reasoning Test (GRT2), Critical Reasoning Test Battery (CRTB2).

Detailed individual narrative and group (ranking) report provide detail of likely risk and a break-down of specific areas of concern.

Timing Approximately 15 minutes plus administration time



Preferences


OIP+ - Occupational Interests Profile


For Adults and Young People 15+

A comprehensive assessment for career guidance and development, OIP+ consists of an occupational interest questionnaire and a measure of personal work needs.

Respondent reports with option to integrate with ability measures. The reports produce a detailed list of career suggestions based on the person’s profile.

Can be integrated with GRT2 to provide an extended career assessment, or GRT1 for use in graduate careers assessment, counselling as well as managerial out-placement.

Timing 15 minutes plus administration time



LSI – Learning Styles Inventory


For Young People 15+ & Adults in All Levels of Position

LSI Assesses a person’s learning style, helping them identify the strategies they most and least prefer to adopt when learning new material. It is a self-development tool that aims to help individuals maximise their learning potential by enabling them to tailor their approach to learning to match their strengths. All learning styles have both strengths and weaknesses, and LSI provides a non-threatening framework in which to explore self-development issues.

LSI measures the 6 learning styles for which there is most supporting research. Each of these 6 learning styles fall into 3 pairs of opposing approaches to learning:

-A preference for learning from an abstract, theoretical perspective, versus learning from practical examples and by focussing on concrete real world issues

-A preference for focussing on the big picture and gaining an overall grasp of the subject-matter before learning the fine detail, versus preferring to focus on the core elements of the subject-matter and build an understanding of how these elements are related to each other ‘from the bottom up’.

-A preference for learning via quiet contemplation and self-reflection versus learning actively by discussion, experimentation and hands-on activity.


Respondent narrative report. For use in personal development.

Timing 10 minutes plus administrative time
