A job personality test is an assessment used by employers to help them choose the most suitable candidate for a position. The test highlights aspects of one’s character and personality. Personality assessments are mostly based on the five factor model, and they are frequently administered online.
Personality tests can be divided by how they are classified: by the assessment company (which markets specific batteries of tests under a brand name), by the position the tests are used for, or by the battery of traits that are tested together (called the test inventory). Below are tables listing different personality tests.
