Assesses the Big Five dimensions of personality: Extraversion, Agreeableness (team orientation), Conscientiousness, Emotional stability, (resilience) and Openness in various situations (flexibility) and Situational perception.
The B5PS is a multi-dimensional test that can be used on a modular basis. It assesses aspects of personality that are relevant to occupational success, and does so using a completely new approach. It considers not only personality traits but also the influence of the current situation in the form of the individual’s situational perception (monotony, expectation of results, vitality, cognitive load and mental and physical load). This concept is based on the recognition that the same situation can be perceived completely differently by different people and that in consequence people do not all behave in the same way in particular situations, even if they have similar personalities. Combining these two aspects enables the B5PS to provide the best prediction of success in the context of staff and management assessments and to facilitate comprehensive and targeted promotion of candidates in the context of staff development.
