There are several personality inventories. Some examples are the Predictive Index, Myers-Briggs, and the Kiersey Termperament Sorter. (Note: this is not a comprehensive list.) Understanding the value of these measures for screening and assessment in hiring decisions is of the upmost importance. For this assignment, you will analyze two personality inventories used in human resources and industrial/organizational psychology. The analysis will include: title, author and publisher, theoretical foundation of the test; a description of each test content, purpose, structure, administration, and scoring guidelines; an evaluation of the reliability and validity of each test; a critique of the strengths and weaknesses of using each test in an applied setting; and an analysis of the multicultural application of each test. Frame your answer from a theoretical perspective. Lastly, determine the impact personality assessment has for the individual and group to improve organizational performance.
