The California Psychological Inventory, sometimes mistakenly referred to as the California Personality Inventory, was originally published in 1956. The CPI is used to help individuals improve their performance and enable organizations to find potential employees and leaders.
The CPI was created to help people gain a clearer picture of their personal and work-related characteristics, motivations, and thinking styles.
In the workplace, the California Psychological Inventory acts as a leadership assessment. Your CPI test results are evaluated according to the job you apply for. With JobTestPrep, you receive a personalized report of your personality test based on the specific position you want.
The CPI may be used for leadership development, performance improvement, or selection and retention.
There are two types of CPI assessments, CPI 434 and CPI 260. Both help develop leadership abilities by aiding people in gaining a better understanding of themselves and how they interact with others. These assessments also help organizations identify talent by measuring traits like creativity, leadership, amicability and tough-mindedness.
The scales that are measured can be grouped into six categories.
|The CPI personality test is scored on the following 29 scales|
|Dominance||Capacity for Status||Sociability||Social Presence||Self-acceptance||Independence||Empathy|
|Responsibility||Social Conformity||Self-control||Good Impression||Communality||Well-being||Tolerance|
|Achievement via Conformance||Achievement via Independence||Conceptual Fluency||Insightfulness||Flexibility||Sensitivity||Managerial Potential|
|Work Orientation||Creative Temperament||Leadership||Amicability||Law Enforcement Orientation|
The last three scales are the High-Order Measures, which are referred to as vector 1, 2, and 3. Each vector shows a correlation between specific traits.
