Tests

It is important to determine the starting point when embarking on a business development project. Assessing the key people in the company, examining the products/services the business offers and combining these results with the company management profile gives a concrete picture of the company’s current opportunities on the market as well as its strengths and weaknesses.

3 POLES PBDA

We created the 3B basic test in 2005 by combining the most important and effective elements of several well-known American business psychological systems. Since then 10 years and more than 200,000 assessments have turned what was the basis into the starting point for today’s unique forms of analysis.

These are the biggest advantages of the 3B ORIGINAL test compared with other psychological measurements:

  • 4 main personality types, each with 3 levels of dominance (i.e. 12 subtypes). These allow for 10,000 unique personality type alignments to be determined.
  • Short, with 36 questions in total. This helps to prevent tiredness affecting how people fill in the questionnaire, which can have an impact on the final results of the analysis.
  • Surprising and unusual questions which do not feel like they are part of a psychological “research” project. Completing the test does not cause the participants any mental strain.
  • It is the only test to measure 3 stages of personality: original, modified and mask. This allows us to carry out dynamic and not just static evaluation of the data. The individual’s whole personality and life history is traced, looking at the past, the present and the future.
  • It is the only test to calculate the “generational factor”. It does not define generations in the traditional way but according to 12 year periods, with each period ascribed different personality types. This means that participants can analyse their personality type according to the generation they belong to, which is key to identifying specific elements of behaviour.

4 POLES WLPB

The 4-point measurement system adds a new, important factor to the evaluation of the tests which have been used at 3B for more than a decade. It also shows the long-term future, personality type modifications planned by the person for a period of 3-5 years or more and the mask they wish to wear. This addition allows the entire lifespan of the person’s personality and behaviour to be noted down and illustrated. The 4-point measurement system adds a new, important factor to the evaluation of the tests which have been used at 3B for more than a decade. It also shows the long-term future, personality type modifications planned by the person for a period of 3-5 years or more and the mask they wish to wear. This addition allows the entire lifespan of the person’s personality and behaviour to be noted down and charted. It also presents the nature and extent of the personality-related and behavioural changes that have taken place up to now. The candidates will also find out when they are planning, if at all, to return to their own, original personalities. Customers gain a precise overview of the behavioural patterns they can expect in the future compared to what is shown at present. Therefore, instead of the original-mask-modified stages of personality used in the basic analysis, original personality-modified personality and short-term mask-long-term mask factors will be listed in the evaluation.

3 POLES JUNIOR PBDA

The 3B basic test developed for children of reading age. We recommend that the test be used up to 3 years after the child’s last year in school, i.e. until the individual has 3 years’ work experience. The junior tests follow the same concept as the other 3B tests, meaning they are user-friendly and easy to complete. After 5 years of testing, the junior tests are officially available from 1st September 2015. Alongside specific analysis the tests also provide customers with advice on the careers and jobs most or least suited to certain personality types. This information helps children or young graduates make sound career choices and provides them with a smooth transition into adult LIFE.

3 POLES KID PBDA

3B carries out a great deal of research and analysis into children’s personality development. Over the last 8 years our analysts have followed the lives of almost 100 children, examining important reactions and identification points with the close cooperation of their parents. In 2015 the first document was finished, which, using simple methods, gives parents the tools to recognise their child’s personality type early on and advises on parenting techniques in line with the child’s personality type. These documents will be published in test form on 15th January 2016. The kid tests, based on parents’ observations, examine the roots of the child’s personality type and, based on this, provide the customer with parenting advice and guidance.
