Has your candidate been honest? Find out with Normative-Ipsative split technology®

A modern (adaptive) personality test such as The Bridge Personality Quickscan uses both normative and ipsative statements. Normative means that the candidate scores a statement on a scale from one to nine (1 = very strongly disagree, 9 = very strongly agree), whereas ipsative means that candidates must rank questions (1 = least applicable to me, 6 = most applicable to me).

Combining normative and ipsative statements provides insight into socially desirable response behavior and consenting responses up to the level of the personality dimension. Using Normative-Ipsative split technology®, The Bridge Personality Quickscan then provides insight into steering response behavior. Normative-Ipsative splits® are indicators in the Bridge Personality Quickscan report that can indicate the degree of steering response behavior at the level of a competency. This way, you can see exactly where a candidate has doubts or where the candidate has tried to complete the test in a socially desirable way. This is a truly indispensable tool during the selection of candidates.
