PI Behavioral Test Score, Answers, and Interpretation

How is the PI Behavioral Test scored and how is the score then interpreted by the company that you are vying for?

Remember that there is no right or wrong answer per se. However, the company will use your answers to build a behavioural picture to see how you would fit into the position.

For example: If you choose adjectives like 'helpful', 'calm', and 'steady', this would indicate that you focus on moral values. If the job entails working with other individuals, these adjectives in the right contexts would indicate that you could be right for the position.


Tips

1. Don't Fake it - Answering too many questions positively or negatively is a give away that you were trying to impress and it will cost you. The goal is to be yourself and be honest and give a true insight into how you are.

2. Think Before you Answer - Before responding to an adjective, think about the goals of the company and the specific parameters of the job. This will help you give an appropriate answer, which leads us to number three.

3. Homework - Make sure you do your homework on the company and the position you are vying for before the test. Use the company website and online message chat platforms like Quora to find relevant information.

4. Consistency - While you don't want to seem ingenuine, you also want to try to maintain a level of consistency in how you relate to the adjectives provided.


FAQ

Here are some frequently asked question relating to what the PI Behavioral Assessment is actually measuring.

What is Dominance Drive? If you are the type of individual who is able to control an environment by sharing ideas and opinions and is able to get things done; then you have a dominance drive quality about you. Moreover, there is a chance you will be working for a high-dominance boss. In this case, the employee with a strong dominance drive may have to learn to balance that drive to accept the framework of his/her boss.

What is Extraversion Drive? Simply put this is a people person and a by extension a team player. For instance, if you gravitate on the test to words like, we or you, rather than me or I, your future employer will most likely identify you with am Extraversion Drive. If your boss has a high Extraversion Drive be ready for him/her to freely delegate, which means more responsibility on your part. On the other hand, if he/she has a low Extraversion Drive, be ready for a more work mico-manage situation.

What is “Patience Drive"? Are you methodological, steady and calm in your work mannerisms? Are you happy with long-term tasks and prefer consistency rather than changes in your environment? Then you have Patience Drive. If your boss has a high Patience Drive, then get ready to work closely in tight-knit groups with slow and methodological changes along the way.

What is High Formality? In essence, this type of trait could also be known as a perfectionist. An employee with high formality will be very attentive to details, extremely careful and cautious, and highly conformant to the rules. On the other side of the coin, a boss with high formality will generally be very demanding, and highly expert in his field, so make sure to bring your A game.
