We work scientifically


Inspire Instead of Leading / Motivating Leading / Better Management by Science

The Predictive Index® was founded more than six decades ago, and in all that time, our mission has not changed. Our passion, inherited from our founder, is to solve business problems through the lens of understanding individuals. Our quest, like yours, is to discover how to impact that behavior, ignite their enthusiasm, and match each role to the right person.

Since 1955 we have honed the wisdom, guidance, and tools that help you inspire your employees to be their most productive and engaged.

The Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment™ was created through a normative sample of thousands of people and has since been the subject of nearly 500 validation studies. It has received continual updates and today represents a well-established, business-relevant, and scientifically proven measure of behavioral tendencies in the workplace.

Our scientifically validated methodology is applicable for companies and organizations of all types, from Fortune 100 to family-owned businesses.

The Predictive Index® delivers valuable insights into workplace behaviors and skills.

The PI Assessment™

Your newest superpower: understanding what motivates people

The PI Behavioral Assessment™ is more than your standard-fare personality test. It identifies and categorizes workplace motivating drivers to provide deep insights into the behaviors and motivations of your colleagues and employees. This source of unbiased insight drastically improves empathy,communication, and collaboration on your teams.

By measuring four factors of a person’s personality — Dominance, Extraversion, Patience, and Formality — the Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment™ helps you shine a light on an employee or job candidate’s core drivers,mapping their specific behavioral pattern. This easy-to-use, science-based framework provides actionable insight into employee needs, behaviors,motivations and development areas.

When coupled with PI’s Job Assessment™, the Behavioral Assessment™ helps you ensure you hire the right person for the job.

PI Behavioral Assessment™ certified in the European Federation of Psychologists’ Associations’ (EFPA) Test Review Model

In September 2018, the PI Behavioral Assessment™ was certified by third-party reviewers from DNV-GL who reviewed the assessment under the in-depth standards defined by the European Federation of Psychologists’ Associations’ (EFPA) Test Review Model.

The EFPA developed the Test Review Model to provide a rigorous, standardized review of psychological assessment instruments so that consumers can make informed decisions about the quality and utility of the instruments.

To earn this certification, researchers at PI spent more than 600 hours collecting documentation, running analyses, and drafting the submission that was reviewed by the DNV-GL experts.

PI’s submission also included extensive technical documentation supporting the validity, reliability, and fairness of the PI Behavioral Assessment.

The PI Job Assessment™

Before you hire, you should know exactly what you’re looking for

Before you hire, you should know exactly what you’re looking for.

Did you know that according to a study by Leadership IQ, 46% of newly-hired employees fail within 18 months? This creates a huge disconnect for hiring managers trying to match real people to job descriptions. Most of us cross that chasm by relying on “good instinct” and pay the price down the road. There’s a better way to evaluate candidates — one that’s built on proven science and focuses not solely on tasks and skills but on the behavioral traits and cognitive abilities that will ensure a candidate will succeed in the new role: PI Job Assessments™ and PI Job Targets™.

The PI Job Assessment™ helps you move beyond the traditional hiring process of job descriptions and resumes, improving your ability to match real people to job descriptions. This helps ensure a candidate will succeed in a new role, saving a lot of frustration, expense, and inefficiency down the road.

The PI Cognitive Assessment™

Cognitive ability: the #1 predictor of job success

The PI Cognitive Assessment™ measures our capacity to learn, adapt, and quickly grasp new concepts in the workplace. Most commonly used during the hiring process, cognitive ability assessments are proven predictors of training success and job performance across all job levels and industries.

When you understand cognitive ability, you are better able to choose employees who are best matched to the role you have — who will learn quickly and independently where required, and who are able to meet and exceed performance expectations.

The PI Cognitive Assessment™ is a scientifically validated measure of general mental agility — modeled on strict standards of test construction set by professional organizations such as the APA (American Psychological Association), SIOP (Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology), and the ITC (International Test Commission).
