The Achiever

Professional, managerial and administrative roles

CRI has designed the Achiever questionnaire to assess an individual in six Mental Aptitudes and ten Personality (i.e., Behavioral) Dimensions. It is then possible to compare a person’s scores in both mental aptitudes and personality (i.e., behavioral) traits to people who have proven successful in a job category. The Achiever report is utilized in the selection and/or training process to develop effectiveness, productivity and job satisfaction.

Why Use The Achiever?

Analyzing a person’s mental aptitudes and personality traits is critical if an employer is to fully evaluate the potential of an individual. While research has shown a consistent relationship between occupation or income level and general intelligence, the results of intelligence tests alone do not predict success or failure in an occupation with a great deal of accuracy.

Many other factors contribute to occupational success other than intelligence. Personality assessments, when validated properly, have been shown to effectively predict employment success. However, limiting assessments to an individual’s personality ignores the impact mental aptitudes have on employment success. Thus, measurement for both mental aptitudes and personality traits are needed, and The Achiever provides both in one instrument.

Ten Personality Dimensions
• Energy
• Flexibility
• Organization
• Communication
• Emotional Development
• Assertiveness
• Competitiveness
• Mental Toughness
• Questioning/Probing
• Motivation

Two Validity Scales
• Distortion – frankness of the respondent
• Equivocation – consistent decision-making

Six Mental Aptitudes
• Mental Acuity – learning comprehension, judgment, reasoning
• Business Terms – knowledge of business terms
• Memory Recall – knowledge of current events
• Vocabulary – English vocabulary skills
• Numerical Perception – ability to handle numerical tasks
• Mechanical Interest – interest in mechanics

The Achiever takes about 50-60 minutes to complete.
