How does a manager benefit from a personality test? 


“It’s a well-known fact that putting people in the right role for them is the best combination for a company’s success,” says director of Executive Education and certified Hogan consultant Peep Aaviksoo on the importance of personality tests. “When putting together a team, it’s useful to map out people’s personality traits in order to know, and not presume, what to expect from them.” “EBS uses three Hogan testing tools,” he adds. “The HPI test predicts work performance in stability, HDS test analyzes behaviour in stressful and intense situations and MVPI test assesses values, cognitive abilities and motivation to contribute.”
