Unlike self-report instruments that measure what a person reports they are like, this instrument measures how they actually think. Not what they think, but how they think. It has the respondent perform a thinking task and then, using complex mathematics, produces a detailed picture of the person's preferred thinking process. It provides objective information regarding such variables as one's strategic thinking ability, attention to concrete detail, intuitive insight, persistence, consistency, systems orientation, sensitivity to others, confidence, optimism, self-regard, emotional control and drive level. In addition to its validity and reliability, the instrument has been tested according to EEOC criteria and found to be nondiscriminatory toward race, sex, or gender.
The Advantages of the Right-Hire Assessment Include the Following:
- administration takes about 15-20 minutes
- it is objective and cannot be biased
- it is simple in that it consists of the rank ordering of 18 items and 18 statements
- it is unobtrusive in that respondents are not asked to describe themselves or their experience
- it is available in multiple languages including pictograph
- it is supported by research
- its users report very high face validity
- it has been very successfully used for recruitment, professional development, teambuilding, succession planning, self-esteem building and relationship building
Since its basis is symbolic logic, it does not fit into the traditional psychological testing mode. Even though a top psychometrician at one of the leading big four consulting firms has given it a very positive review, some trained only in psychological metrics are uncomfortable when faced with its unusual accuracy and simple format.
