Personality Tasks – An Alternative To Personality Questionnaires | Seminar | Hong Kong | 11th January 2018
TK Wu Head of training and Consultant Psychologist here at Quest will be in Hong Kong next month delivering a speach to the Seminar being held by the Division of Industrial- Organizational Psychology (DIOP).
Utilising recent advances in technology, personality assessment can be revolutionised so that one no longer needs to rely solely on personality questionnaires, which routinely suffer from distortion such as social desirability responding. (Birkeland et al 2006).
The alternative approach – Objective Personality Tests or OPTs
Builds on the research of Cattell (e.g. Cattell and Warburton 1967). OPTs rely on measuring task performance – but it is the way people complete each task, rather than how well they do on it, that reveals their personality traits. Participants are unaware of which aspects of their personality are being assessed. The tasks are typically short e.g. 5-12 minutes, completed online and resemble puzzles or challenges that are applicable to all ages and levels of seniority.
In this interactive session, the speakers will share their own research into the validation of multiple OPTs using self-report ratings of personality and biodata.
