Personality tests are used to expose your deeper, hidden layers—those that cannot be seen during a job interview. The purpose of personality tests is to help employers understand whether your own personal profile matches that of the position they are looking to fill.
The Thomas personality assessment is used in conjunction with another tool: Thomas Job. This tool identifies the ideal behavioural qualities and competencies required for a certain position. Thomas compares the results of your assessment to the Job profile and bases its decision on how well the two profiles match.
The Thomas Personality Profile Assessment (PPA) is a short, eight-minute questionnaire. Each question presents four words that describe different behavioural responses to work situations. Imagine yourself in a working environment—pick the word that describes the reaction you are most likely to take as well as the word that describes the reaction you are least likely to take.
Through your answers to these questions, the PPA assessment is able to evaluate your personal strengths and weaknesses, what drives you and what challenges you, which situations make you feel uncomfortable, and so on.
Preparing for any test ensures you are more relaxed and confident on test day. Moreover, specifically for personality tests, understanding the principles underlying the exam enables you to recognise your own traits more acutely. This can help you build a complimenting personality profile, emphasising specific traits you think fit the job you are applying for. Thus, preparing in advance for the Thomas behavioural assessment can significantly improve your chances of winning your desired job.
