Psychometric Profiles- Personality Identity Profile (PIP)

The Fixed Price Recruitment Company can offer a range of psychometric profiles, but the one we recommend is the Personality Identity Profile (PIP). The PIP is powered by Kenexa, owned by IBM and is designed by industry experts to give an insight into each candidate’s personality. The PIP looks into eight key personality traits.


The Personality Identity Profile takes between 7 and 10 minutes to complete and requires candidates to answer a range of questions. Following this a report is compiled showing an overview of what a candidates personality is likely to look like, to see an example report click here.

5.    Social Sensitivity

6.    Caring (How aware a candidate is of others)
