Hiring Manager’s Interview Guide

The Hiring Manager's Interview Guide consists of a narrative description of the individual, a set of Targeted Interview Probes (TIPs) and a profile of scores. It is used to help those charged with making hiring decisions narrow their focus in further interviews and reference checks. A person’s general personality characteristics can offer insights into how he or she might thrive in a wide variety of jobs and company cultures. Our standard reports include information on the “DNA of personality.” These are the factors that are consistent and stable over time and that affect us consistently in a wide range of situations. A broad professional consensus is that people can be described effectively using five major dimensions of personality (the Five Factor Theory, or Big Five).

  • Extraversion (the orientation towards people and the external world)
  • Emotional Reactivity (the tendency to be anxious, high strung or impatient)
  • Behavioral Control (which includes discipline, conscientiousness and detail-orientation)
  • Agreeableness (the inclination to be affable, harmonious and cooperative)
  • Complexity (the orientation towards the world of strategic, conceptual and complex ideas)

This report includes the candidate’s profile on the Big Five personality factors described above and their sub-scores, job functional similarity (administrative, customer service, managerial, sales, technical, etc.); empirically-derived job-related scales (dependability, motivation, stress tolerance, etc.) and observations about the person’s problem-solving approach, interpersonal style and motivational makeup.
