Background & Theory
The Thomas Personality assessment is powered by the High Potential Trait Indicator (HPTI) which was developed by Ian MacRae and Adrian Furnham in 2006.
The assessment measures Conscientiousness, Adjustment, Curiosity, Risk Approach, Ambiguity Acceptance and Competitiveness.
A person’s responses are reflected back as a position on a continuum for each of the 6 traits, consisting of Very Low, Low, Moderate, High or Very High. Too much or too little of a trait will have advantages as well as disadvantages. Certain trait levels can indicate a high potential to succeed, or potentially indicate characteristics that could de-rail an otherwise successful person.
Format of the Thomas Personality assessment
The Thomas Personality assessment is a self-report questionnaire. Individuals indicate their level of agreement on a 1-7 Likert scale (1 ‘disagree completely’ to 7 ‘agree completely) with 78 unique items. The Personality test takes just 10 minutes to complete.
