Sophisticated Design — Simple Language — Profound Results
Personality Style at Work (PSAW) is HRDQ's latest and most statistically accurate assessment. It's a simple, but highly effective tool that measures both the core behaviours that make-up an individual's style and the lens through which they choose to navigate their world. Certification is not required to administer the assessment, making it a more accessible tool than others of its type.
A cursory internet search will reveal dozens of assessments and instruments for helping people understand the fundamental traits and characteristics of their personality. Indeed, the continued and widespread use of personality assessments stresses their significance as tools for learning and development. While knowing your personality is important—it's also just one piece of the development puzzle. Assessments that spell out a little more than a horoscope of traits and tendencies or a maze of acronyms and labels do not effect lasting change. It is important to learn how to put that knowledge to use in order to form a complete picture of yourself—results that lead to this level of perception call for precise and refined self-evaluation.
At the foundation of each of the four personality styles—Direct, Considerate, Spirited, and Systematic—is a set of three drivers that guide our actions, decisions, and general life approach. Delving even deeper into the framework of personality is a look at the lens of expressiveness and assertiveness—the learned behaviours that we use as a means of coping with the demands and expectations placed upon us and which help to explain how we can appear to have one personality at work and another in our personal life.

Personality Style at Work is accessible through HRDQ's online assessment portal (account required). A version for individual use is also available. The assessment takes approximately 10 - 15 minutes to complete. Individuals respond to 94 different items designed to help them identify their behavioral preferences, shedding light on how they react to and interact with the world around them. Most statements ask them to respond by indicating the frequency with which they approach, think about, or act in the way described. Each response is scored and used to generate a Core Profile identifying an individual's personality style and the implications of this style when completing tasks, working with others, and most importantly, how others are to likely see them. Included in the Core Profile are numerous tips and techniques for building rapport, and optimizing relationships and interactions with other styles. The report concludes with a section on using the information in PSAW to create a personal action and development plan.
