Upon completion of the eTest standard battery, the results are emailed to the hiring manager. This report provides an in-depth analysis of the candidate's personality and aptitude characteristics as they relate to the workplace. The reports that can be generated from the eTest standard battery are described below.

Hiring Manager's Interview Guide

The Hiring Manager's Interview Guide consists of a narrative description of the individual, a set of Targeted Interview Probes (TIPs) and a profile of scores. It is used to help those charged with making hiring decisions narrow their focus in further interviews and reference checks.

A person’s general personality characteristics can offer insights into how he or she might thrive in a wide variety of jobs and company cultures. Our standard reports include information on the “DNA of personality.” These are the factors that are consistent and stable over time and that affect us consistently in a wide range of situations. A broad professional consensus is that people can be described effectively using five major dimensions of personality (the Five Factor Theory, or Big Five):

  • Extraversion (the orientation towards people and the external world)

  • Emotional Reactivity (the tendency to be anxious, high strung or impatient)

  • Behavioral Control (which includes discipline, conscientiousness and detail-orientation)

  • Agreeableness (the inclination to be affable, harmonious and cooperative)

  • Complexity (the orientation towards the world of strategic, conceptual and complex ideas)

This report includes the candidate’s profile on the Big Five personality factors described above and their sub-scores, job functional similarity (administrative, customer service, managerial, sales, technical, etc.); empirically-derived job-related scales (dependability, motivation, stress tolerance, etc.) and observations about the person’s problem-solving approach, interpersonal style and motivational makeup.

Developmental Report

The Developmental Report is written for the job candidate in case you want to provide feedback.  It provides a narrative description of the candidate's personality traits, a set of developmental suggestions and a score profile. It is useful as a standalone tool for further self-reflection and personal/career development or as part of a more comprehensive coaching process. It includes the Personality Profile information from the Hiring Manager's Interview Guide report, a more developmentally-oriented version of the narrative description and several targeted developmental suggestions. 

Leadership Report

The eTest Leadership Report is designed for use as a developmental tool. It may also be used as another data point in selection, but should not be the sole criteria for a hiring or promotion decision. It is a narrative report which provides a description of the person’s general style and likely behavior in a position of influence or leadership, to include probable assets, de-railers and developmental suggestions.

The Leadership Report is available as an optional $25 add-on to the Hiring Manager's Interview Guide. It is an addition to the standard results and does not require any additional testing.

Sales Report

Based on the standard eTest Profile, the Sales Report is the result of rigorous research using real-world data from a wide variety of organizations and sales jobs. There is no one best sales profile for all jobs but there are certain traits and behaviors that increase the chances for success in most sales jobs.

Our research indicates that sales people and sales jobs themselves can be described along four major dimensions:

  • General Sales Similarity (an overall scale indicating how similar the person is to people in a very wide range of sales jobs)

  • Account Acquisition (the traditional hunter-farmer factor)

  • Strategic Selling (important in developing complex solutions for clients)

  • Team Coordination (necessary for marshalling an array of resources for the client)

In combination with in-depth information about the Big Five personality factors and the empirically-derived scales mentioned in the Hiring Manager’s Guide, the Sales Report describes a candidate’s Interpersonal Style, Motivational Makeup, Problem-Solving Approach, Sales Leadership Style, Probable Assets, Potential Liabilities and Developmental Suggestions.

The Sales Report is available as an optional $25 add-on to the Hiring Manager's Interview Guide. It is an addition to the standard results and does not require any additional testing.
