There are many different approaches to personality assessment of which the most common are personality tests. If you have been through a recruitment process, you have perhaps tried to take a personality test.The majority of personality tests allow applicants to mark their answers based on self-assessment, which means that results are likely to be somewhat biased.The problem with this process is that people often have limited self-insight and a tendency to present themselves in a particularly (positive) manner. Furthermore, people’s perceptions of themselves do not tend to correlate with the impressions others have of them.
Your Praice profile makes you more aware of how to use your personality traits in different professional relations. Each personality trait in your profile carries with it strengths and challenges.If your motivational orientation is characterised as being for instance Ambitious, you will typically be driven and prioritise progress in your career highly. At the same time, your challenging characteristic may be that you are Impatient.Once you have awareness of your strengths and challenges, you are better able to use them in improving your work performance and professional relationships.
A Praice profile helps you to put into words how you distinguish yourself from your colleagues and what you can learn from each other.If you for example are Reflective in your approach to tasks, it will probably be advantageous for you to know which colleague has the same approach as you, so you can see how they are performing. Similarly, it may be beneficial for you to know which of your colleagues are, for example Decisive, so you can observe how this quality is expressed and whether it is something you should aspire to be.
