Personality assessments holds significance from 2 aspects; firstly they help in objectively quantifying behaviour and hence help in identifying root cause of a person’s behavioural or adjustment problems. These assessments can also help in identifying potential extremities in behaviour and thus serve as inputs for personality development of the individual.
Secondly, every profession demands a different set of personality traits. A win-win situation can be created only when a “person-job fit” is achieved. Increased use of personality tests by reputed organisations in their hiring processes is a testamony to this fact.
