Interests and Personality Assessments.

Interests and personality assessments are often used to assist people in understanding themselves and in determining patterns of interests and behaviors. Select one of the tests discussed in Chapter 14 (e.g. Strong Interest Inventory, 16-PF, MMPI-2, etc.) and conduct a thorough search online (utilizing at least three reliable websites or journal articles) regarding what the test measures, what settings and/or populations the test is intended for, and what the test’s strengths and weaknesses are.

Your discussion should include the following:

  1. A brief overview of what the test measures and the settings in which it can be used.
  2. Discuss some situations when personality assessments such as the one you selected might be used in the workplace. What information could a personality test provide regarding behaviors, communication style, etc., and how would that relate to a workplace setting?
  3. What are the relative strengths and weaknesses of the test?
  4. What factors must be considered when examining and interpreting the results of personality and self-inventories such as this?
