Personality profiling - sometimes referred to as psychometric testing or psychological profiling - is a means of measuring an individual’s personality in a particular situation. It is not a measure of intelligence or ability - but of behaviour.
Profiling provides a snapshot view of the preferred behaviour that comes subconsciously to most people. This is the behaviour with which they are ‘comfortable’ and can sustain for long periods of time. This behaviour is social and intellectual - not physical.
There are as many definitions of ‘personality’ as there are famous psychologists, however, one very notable pioneer in this field was Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung. His theories are widely used in the corporate testing arena and underpin the personality profiling offered by Acumen.
