This follows a number of global presentations where Alan Howard and TK Wu have been introducing Personality Tasks to business as an alternative to Personality Questionnaires.
Self-report personality questionnaires are the traditional and an accepted means of assessing personality. They present an alternative to personality questionnaires: personality tasks – with the changing nature of work, traditional ways of assessment need to change. Questionnaires suffer from distortion such as social desirability responding and errors due to poor self awareness. The alternative approach – Objective Personality Tasks or OPTs – directly assess personality through task performance.
