NATURAL ABILITY ASSESSMENTS

 

Assessments of Natural Ability require PERFORMANCE of virtual worksamples that test abilities and report the level of the test-taker's performance in that ability.  

It is important not to confuse these with assessments of Personal Style which are very different.  Such assessments require a choice of pre-formatted responses to prescribed questions designed by the publisher and report how those responses fit into a series of pre-determined personality profiles.  

Personal style assessments do not claim to measure abilities but are essentially self-report instruments to identify personality types.  These include the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), the 16 Personality Factor Questionnaire, DISC (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness), and the Birkman Method.
