Personality & Psychometric Assessments

Expat Solution Coaching  does NOT provide
personality /psychometric assessments.

And here's WHY!

analysis-1

 

Expat Solution Coaching does not provide personality /psychometric assessments per se.

The very first reason is that there is one definition of personality per author.
The least we can say is that in the literature all authors don't agree on the definition of the term "personality".

So, why trying to assess something we're not even clear about?
Kind of difficult, isn't it?

 

The second reason is the psychologists who pushed their investigations in this direction were moved to find "disorders", and so "personality disorders".
For this reason, they developed "personality assessments" in order to find disorders. Up to now, most "personality assessments" used for business issues are derivated from these "personality disorder assessments". While on some occasion it may be useful, most of the time I don't believe it reveals relevant and useable pieces of information.

 

Psychometric or not?

Psychometric means "measuring psyche".
We got the same problem with "psyche" as we got with "personality".

So, it's kind of difficult to assess something we're not even clear about?
Kind of difficult, isn't it?

 

I made the choice  TO NOT PRETEND MEASURING PERSONALITY OR PSYCHE BUT BEING CLEAR ABOUT THE "WHAT"  I PRETEND TO MEASURE.

 

I made the choice TO MEASURE THINGS THAT ARE USEFUL, RELEVANT FOR HUMAN CAPITAL, COACHING, BUSINESS, and ORGANIZATIONAL PURPOSES, not therapy.

 

Just to remind you, coaching is not therapy, but it MAY provide some therapeutic outcomes. If it happens, then it's a side and secondary benefit.
