Description & Features

CTPI-R was developed on the basis of different theoretical and empirical models of personality at work, by considering the dimensions measured by existing personality questionnaires as well as the conceptual criteria used for other successful Central Test tools (namely the Professional Profile-R and the Occupational Interest Inventory).

The assessment CTPI-R,2012  examines 19 factors categorised into 4 dimensions:

Perception mode: Conscientiousness - Rational - Rule conscious

 Self-management: Self-confidence - Lively - Emotional stability - Optimism - Surpassing - Commitment

Change management: Visionary - Action-orientated - Adaptability - Experimental 

CTPI-R and Equal Opportunities

Equal opportunities represent a critical consideration for any modernday work assessment, and an assessment is only considered to be truly valid when it is appropriate for use with different groups. The CTPI-R is a fair and accurate measure of critical thinking, and HR practitioners and psychologists can be confident of its application.


Mapping to relevant competencies possible?
yes

Measures put in place to remove or reduce biases

It is particularly appropriate for the assessment of individuals holding a post-graduate diploma (Master's degree or higher) as well as for managers, although the content of the CTPI-R relates to personality characteristics that can be pertinent to various occupational fields.

However, due to the dimensions being measured, it is less suitable for the assessment of people with certain occupations (or who are being recruited for certain occupations), such as production line work or clerical positions.

The main reason is that most of the personality dimensions included in the CTPI-R are meant to predict managerial performance (e.g. Control/Power or Developing others), which is not necessarily relevant to all types of occupations. The language level of some items can also be inappropriate in the assessment of people with a lower mastery of the English language.

Statistically significant differences between females (n = 3691) and males (n = 8593 were found in 15 of the factors of CTPI-R  as part of a study to check for differences in scores between genders . Across all of these factors, males scored higher than females.
