Personality test experts People Maps return to offer candidates more invaluable advise about the use of personality profilers and their importance in the job interview process
Last Updated: 27-Aug-2010
Upon receipt of your personality report a professional interviewer will interpret your results and draw some conclusions about you even before they have met you. This may seem unfair but it is not uncommon.
The interviewer is not just trying to figure out if you have the technical skills to do the job but they want to know that you will fit in and get along with everyone. Your CV will already have provided information about your technical skills or you wouldn’t be at the interview but it doesn’t provide any information about who you are as a person. This is why companies use personality profilers.
Companies have their own personality. The work environment can be described in a similar way to a personality. Imagine a gregarious outgoing flamboyant individual being placed in an environment which is full of quiet, studious, introverts. You can see that this will upset things and that the likelihood of friction is there.
However sometimes an employer is looking to mix things up a little and will deliberately look for someone that is a little different from the existing mix.
The ideal team will have a combination of personality types. This is challenging but when it works the results can be fantastic.
Truth is you will never know exactly what an employer is looking for and therefore should always answer honestly. However it is important that you know how you are coming across and what the interviewer is reading about you as it will help you during the course of the interview. You can try a personality test for free here (www.peoplemaps.co.uk/pharmiweb.htm) and be able to read how an interviewer has interpreted your results.
