Personality Colours

Personality Colours is a short personality questionnaire that assigns colours to the most important character traits.

Application

Personality Colours provides insight into the personality of a candidate and what it will be like to work with that candidate. Qualities, pitfalls, work and communication styles are all examined here. The questionnaire will reveal how a candidate is inclined to act and it will give advice on how someone would and would not like to be treated by others. The questionnaire is broadly applicable and can be used as a main starting point for personal and professional development. Primary fields are coaching, training and (organisational) development. We do not consider this questionnaire to be suitable for selection. We prefer to use the Work-related Personality Questionnaire.

Development

It is our ambition to offer quality, reliable standardised personality questionnaires that are easily legible and provide useful information towards gaining insight into personality, collaborative style, work style and communication. To this end, the scientific basis of the Big Five model is combined with a more practical presentation of the results. To come to this representation, we use the circumplex method, which means that a combination of factors are considered. The results that are represented in the report are always based on combinations of the highest and lowest scores.
