Job Assessment Test
The Profile XT™ is a “Total person” assessment that has a myriad of uses. It measures the job-related qualities that make a person productive – Thinking and Reasoning Style, Behavioral Traits, and Occupational Interests. It is convenient and easy to use on the Internet – no administrator or proctoring is required.
The Profile XT™ is used for placement, promotion, self-improvement, coaching, succession planning, and job description development. Our clients tell us The Profile XT™ is three to five times more effective than any other assessment they have used. It is a versatile management tool that develops Job Match Patterns that can be customized by company, department, manager, position, geography, or any combination of these factors.
Job Match Testing Makes the Difference
Job Match Patterns are effective because they compare the qualities of your job candidates to the attributes of your most productive employees. The patterns tell you whether candidates are like or different from your top performers. A study published in the Harvard Business Review concluded that Job Match more accurately predicts job success than any of the commonly accepted factors, such as education, experience, or job training. Matching people so they fit the work they do builds productivity and job-satisfaction and diminish negative factors such as stress, tension, conflict, miscommunication, and costly employee turnover.

DISC helps people explore behavior across four primary dimensions: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness.
The start of this understanding begins with a person understanding the meaning of DISC and then taking a DISC profile, either by paper or through the Internet. They will then get an interpretation in a class or through an extensive paper printout.
Individuals need to know:
- What style they have and how others perceive them.
- What D, I, S, and C represent.
- What their graph means in each of the four continuums.
- What the four segments of the continuums where their graph is missing mean.
- How their style and their co-workers styles work together.
- What they need to do to have style flexibility.
- What roles do they play in their job and what styles are required.
- What style does the organization need to reach its vision?
- Does their style lend itself to working well with others with different styles?
- My plan for behavioral effectiveness.
