Combining Multiple Personality Tests: A Practitioner Hackathon

About this event

Based on feedback from members, this event is a change from our usual format and involves small groups discussing practical case studies. We are hoping to create as a result, a working document of Recommendations/Top Tips/Watch-Outs which we will share with all attendees and also develop into a public document which will be available on our website and free to use and circulate. We have six experienced practitioners presenting in parallel showcasing how the combination of psychometric tools can be used to enhance the understanding of an individual/team. The sessions are repeated and you will have the opportunity to attend 3 of the 6 possible discussion groups (please email if you have a strong preference for which groups you would like to join, otherwise allocation will be randomised on the day). Ideas, suggestions and contributions from the participants in all of the discussion groups will be collated and combined into a final document circulated after the event.

See Event Flyer for more details and Presenter Biographies


Room 1: Dark Triad and Dark Tetrad and a Psychodynamic Approach: Dr Michelle Hunter-Hill, Chartered Psychologist and Programme Director, MSc Occupational and Business Psychology, Roehampton University.

Michelle will highlight how she has used Dark Triad and Dark Tetrad measures in conjunction with two specific Systems-Psychodynamic tools - ORA and CIBART in order to assess and tackle cases of deviant/risk-taking behaviour, cyber-bullying/trolling, and corporate psychopathy, at an individual and organisational level.

Room 2: Hogan Assessment Suite: Gillian Hyde, Chief Psychologist & MD at Psychological Consultancy Ltd.

Gillian will be presenting a case study of an individual’s profile, using the Hogan Assessment Suite (Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) + Hogan Development Survey (HDS) + Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI)). The HPI is a versatile tool which focusses on normal or ‘bright side’ personality traits – qualities that describe how we relate to others when we are at our best. Providing in-depth insight into how people work and lead, the HPI is linked to on-the-job performance and can be used for selection and hiring and personal and leadership development. The HDS describes the dark side of personality – qualities that emerge in times of increased strain and can disrupt relationships, damage reputations, and derail peoples’ chances of success. The MVPI gives an understanding of what motivates an individual’s choices and decisions. Through gaining an appreciation of these drivers, organisations can better advise, motivate and manage staff.

Room 3: Resilience and Decision-Making: Jessica Nelkin, Business Psychologist, Zircon – BeTalent.

How does an individual’s levels of resilience relate to how they make decisions? The BeTalent Resilience Questionnaire helps to raise self-awareness and explore the emotions typically experienced at work. The BeTalent Decision-Styles Questionnaire assesses whether you are an ‘agile’ decision maker or whether you have a ‘pronounced’ preference for making decisions. Jessica will be presenting the data from a population of over 500 professionals to provide deeper insights into the impact emotions have on decision-style and preference. She will also explore how decision-making and resilience can predict levels of procrastination, opening the door to a discussion around the value of these tools in a workplace environment.

Room 4: Team Coaching of Leadership Teams: Alex Popa-Antohi, Business Psychologist and Executive Coach.

Alex will be presenting anonymised data from a team coaching programme for a leadership team. He will focus on the Diagnostic & Inquiry phase of the team coaching, where a whole-team diagnostic tool was used, in addition to phone interviews with team members and stakeholders. The results were further explored in a team workshop and informed the focus areas for further team coaching. To support the team leader, a series of coaching sessions were offered, using a combination of a 360 assessment (Primary Colours of Leadership 360), and trait-based tools (Hogan Assessments). Alex will describe the benefits of using different assessment tools at the individual and team level and will focus on the tensions arising from the contradictions in the data.

Room 5: Traits and Types - Senior Leadership Assessment: Tameron Chappell, Independent Chartered Occupational Psychologist, Athinka Ltd.

Tameron will be presenting anonymised data from a senior leadership team where she combined a trait tool (NEO-PI-3 Primary Colours Leadership) and a type tool (Team Management Profile) to support the team. She will describe how she chose the two tools for the team, the pros and cons of using each individually with teams and what the value was in combining them.

Room 6: What Assessments Work, When and Why? Lynne Hindmarch, Independent Business Psychologist, OBC Ltd.

Lynne will be presenting several different assessment scenarios, and will talk her group through the decision-making process of identifying which assessment is appropriate for which context and why. A very practical session, which may well recreate situations that attendees have found themselves in, but in this case they will be in the safe peer-supported environment and able to explore options available and why they have been chosen, without a stressful client deadline. Lynne will demonstrate the importance of recognising there is always the option to choose from a variety of different test providers.
