The Personality and Preference Inventory (PAPI 3) is one of Cubiks aptitude tests and is considered the industry’s leading personality assessment. It helps assess a candidate or employee by exploring his or her personality and preferred work style. In addition, it helps employers identify, select, and develop the type of employees a company needs.

The PAPI 3 is available in a wide range of languages and formats. Two specific test types are the leadership roles test and the sales position test. The PAPI can be used for all types of interviews and conversations.

What Our Cubiks PAPI PrepPack Entails

JobTestPrep's Cubiks PAPI online test PrepPack is comprised of one full-length PAPI-styled test and three study guides, ensuring that you are fully prepared and understand the material at hand.

Our PAPI Theory study guides break down the PAPI scales, the format and appearance of PAPI items, and key features of the PAPI Needs and Roles scales.

The Professional Profile study guide outlines, in great detail, the job position and role you are best suited for, based off of your personality test results. In order to figure this out, you must first take the PAPI test, and then compare your PAPI results with the Professional Profile study guide traits. From there, you will be able to decipher what your report (traits) should look like for various professions.

The Motivation and Culture Fit study guide is a bonus study guide that describes and outlines your compatibility and preferences to a job position and organization, based on your personality test results.

Ensure your success on the PAPI test with JobTestPrep's PrepPack.
