16PF Testing

The 16PF is an assessment of personality used in business recruitment.

If you are shortly going to sit the 16PF then you might be thinking about getting some practice in before sitting the assessment.

The 16PF is the latest incarnation of test first developed more than 50 years ago in the USA. Using a technique called factor analysis the results of over 100 questions are collated to give people scores for 16 character traits. These are

Warmth
Reasoning
Emotional Stability
Dominance
Liveliness
Rule-Consciousness
Social Boldness
Sensitivity
Vigilance
Abstractedness
Privateness
Apprehensiveness
Openness to Change
Self-Reliance
Perfectionism
Tension

Can I learn how the 16PF works

ASE provide BPS Level A and B Training in the UK. Level A covers ability testing , Level B covers personality testing but I believe you have to do Level A befor you can study for level B.

Can practice actually help me do better at the 16PF?

Raymond Cattell, the author of the 16PF said you cannot cheat, since there are no correct answers. When you complete the assessment you are effectively telling the test giver where you think you are more or less inclinesd to be viewed as having the 16 'factors'. However, practicing for an assessment provides you with familiarity and therefore makes you feel relaxed and comfortable when you sit the assessment. This will ensure you do not get wildly odd results.
