The whole Pairin process starts with a simple 10—15 minute survey that only requires an 8th grade education. We combine the value of personality tests and specialized testing (specific jobs, 21st century skills, leadership, culture, etc.) to deliver the most comprehensive results ever available in a people development and hiring system.
While most measures lump people into a handful of broad categories, we look deeper into what makes people unique. You might not guess it from the survey, but Pairin measures over one hundred behaviors that provide key insights into what makes individuals successful. When it comes to science, our research has stood the test of time. Over sixty years of peer review and over 700 scholarly studies have given our customers the confidence to rely on Pairin science.
Behind the scenes, our powerful analytics system performs countless equations to provide eloquent solutions to your business problems. The data we analyze with the Pairin Solution is presented in a friendly, graphical way, without requiring a PhD to translate. We already did that. The data provided, of course, allows you to learn about a person’s personality, that’s easy. But, what makes a real difference is learning about the coachable/changeable behaviors like ways of interacting with others, character strengths, leadership qualities, relational needs, the type of organizations they thrive in, and how they give and receive help — just to name a few.
Businesses can automatically compare the unique qualities of their top performers with every applicant to see how they might potentially perform in their organization before a first interview, and where they might need development.
The process is a simple one — just register as little as 5 top and 5 bottom performers and our patent-pending Gold Standard process goes to work identifying what makes your rock stars special once they take the survey. You also get a custom web site with your logo to easily integrate the Pairin survey with your Applicant Tracking System or hiring website. When an applicant applies, they take the survey and are evaluated against the Gold Standard, helping you prioritize which applicants get your first attention. We even give you a custom Hiring Insights Interview Guide for every applicant, to make the face—to—face more real.
For educational institutions and businesses interested in developing their existing staff, or just not ready to do pre-employment selection, the same survey also serves your needs. Just test your existing students or staff, and we help you identify which behaviors, if developed, might be key to their future success. We can even compare the development progress of individuals and groups over time with subsequent tests.
For example, if you are interested in identifying which of your up and coming stars might be at risk of burn-out and need some special care before it’s too late, we can build that profile based on exit interviews and/or top performer modeling and identify those people. Then, after their new development program (coaching, etc.,) is in place for a while, you can test that individual again and see how they are progressing.
YOU CAN TRUST THE RESULTS
Our process and results are more scientifically valid than any other pre—employment selection offering currently on the market. Where others have either created their own reference, licensed someone else’s tests to apply to a different purpose, or leveraged 1—3 areas of psychological research and methodologies (in some instances only partially), we leverage Freud, Jung, Mead and Murray, including Murray’s Need-Press Theory of personality; Berne’s Transactional Analysis Theory of Personality ; 9 topical scales measuring various aspects of personality and social dispositions; and George Welsh’s research on Creativity and Intelligence. Our test is also the most peer-reviewed (tested and evaluated by those outside of our organization) of any on the market.
The Pairin test is a normed, standardized personality and behavior measure based on The Adjective Check List (ACL). The ACL module is based on the Adjective Check List Manual by Harrison G. Gough & Alfred B. Heilbrun, Jr., © CPP, Inc. It has been in use since its development in 1949. In addition to the unchanging personality attributes, the Pairin System also measures changeable, coachable behaviors, such as emotional intelligence (EQ), leadership and professional behaviors. It provides a wealth of information that is not otherwise available.
