Why Employers Use Integrity Test

Being able to identify unsuitable candidates can save an employer from problems that may arise during employment. The tests may be accompanied by personality tests, Administrative SJT tests and more.  

Integrity tests do not eliminate dishonesty or theft at work. However, they show that those who score poorly on the test tend to be less suitable and less productive employees.


How Are Integrity Tests Different from Personality Tests?

Personality tests typically measure characteristics related to work behavior, interpersonal interactions, and satisfaction with different aspects of work. Personality tests are often used to assess whether people have the potential to succeed in jobs where performance requires a great deal of interpersonal interaction or teamwork.

Integrity tests, on the other hand, focus more on honesty and fairness. They tend to deal with questions that include different kinds of contrasts in behavior, as well as overt theft of money, property, or merchandise.

Examples of Overt Integrity Questions

The questions assess an individual’s attitude toward theft and other deviant or illegal acts, along with questions about an individual’s prior involvement in such behavior. Employers will look at the answers to make inferences about an applicant’s likeliness to commit workplace theft and/or other counterproductive acts.

The types of questions typically asked on integrity tests are about previous experiences related to ethics and integrity. The questions may also be about preferences and interests from which inferences are drawn about future behavior in these areas.

An integrity test involves two types of questions: open integrity questions and veiled-purpose questions.

Overt integrity questions are designed to ask applicants about their attitudes towards specific manifestations of dishonesty, particularly theft, and their past involvement in such behavior.

Examples of Overt Integrity Questions

  • Do you think that you are too honest to take something that is not yours?
  • How much do you dislike doing what someone tells you to do?
  • Do you think it is stealing to take small items home from work?
  • Do you believe that taking paper or pens without permission from a place where you work is stealing?
  • Do you believe most employers take advantage of the people who work for them?

Examples of Veiled-Purpose Questions

  • True or False: I like to take chances.
  • On average, how often during the week do you go to parties?
  • True or False: I am usually confident about myself.
  • I feel lonely even when I am with other people {all of the time, most of the time, sometimes, almost never, never}.
  • How often do you make your bed (every day, never, etc.)?

Other Types of Questions

You may also be asked to choose the statement that describes you best.
