Frequently Asked Questions
Is the TypeFinder valid and reliable?
Yes. The TypeFinder has been studied extensively to ensure its reliability and validity. We have published the results of our research here.
Can I configure my account so that my client does not see his or her results? I would like to be the only one with access to the results.
Unfortuately, we do not currently offer this option. Your client is shown his or her results immediately after completing the assessment.
Can I use the TypeFinder to help me hire the right people?
The TypeFinder is not recommended for use in hiring or selection. Assessments that are useful for hiring must be specially designed so that the candidate cannot manipulate the results. The TypeFinder has not been designed to be accurate in a situation where a respondent may be motivated to make a good impression, and thus has no validity when used during the hiring process.
