Field of Application+

Detailed Description+

The combination of the BFSI personality test with the INT cognitive ability test makes it possible to test important factors for professional success. This combination is suitable both for investigations in personnel selection as well as personnel development. The right mix of ability and personality helps users to make a prediction about whether applicants can develop into successful employees and also for targeted supporting of employees in personnel development. 
The materials of the applied tests are not explicitly embedded in the work context but correspond to traditional performance or personality tests. Therefore, the test set is primarily suited for persons with no or little work experience.

For all tests included in the test combination, there is proof for content validity as well as on construct and criterion validity. Construct validity could be proven via the analysis of the correlations with construct-related and construct-unrelated tests. In addition, confirmatory factor analyses prove the factor structure of the tests used. In addition, there is proof for external criteria such as work success or work ability, or results from other very similar tests are generalized for the tests.
