What is a personality profile?

A personality profile is a set of specific statements designed to describe an individual’s behavioral preferences. In other words, it identifies the ways a person likes to work, behave and react to others. However, personality profiles do not define a person’s abilities, nor should they be used to categorize individuals or their potential.

Personality profiles are useful development tools for helping individuals understand how they see themselves and relate to others. Personality profiles help individuals understand their feelings and emotions, how they deal with them, and how they approach problems. Understanding personality underpins self-awareness and emotional intelligence.


What is the TIPping Point?

Our 2nd type of personality report identifies a person’s preferred team roles based on her/his personality preferences. Using a taxonomy of 10 roles and 2 factors of effectiveness, TIPping Point helps individuals understand how their personality drives their ways of working in groups and teams.

Based on this knowledge, individuals can contribute more successfully to a team and its objectives. The report describes ratings, observable behaviors, and typical working preferences for each of the 10 roles. Suggestions for leaders’ and team members’ opportunities to support the team’s effectiveness are also provided.
