This test is designed to measure a candidate's personality, values, behaviour and attitudes. Each of the questions are designed by psychologists to identify specific aspects of the psyche as well as personality or behavioural traits.

It can be used by recruiters or Human Resources as a sifting process in a recruitment or promotion process, or to identify those candidates best suited to the role, team or company.


Symbiotics' Advanced Personality Questionnaire is designed for use within businesses and is not able to be sold to an individual candidate. The results of this test have to be interpreted by a certified professional to ensure accurate and constructive feedback.

User Requirements

Our Psychologists say

Symbiotics' Personality Questionnaire has been used for some years to successfully identify individuals whose personal style preferences best suit them for work in high stakes roles. Based on the Five Factor model of personality, additional elements pick up on traits that are particularly undesirable in these roles. The profile can also be tailored to fit the national and organisational culture of the employing company.

Recent changes to the EASA regulations require all pilots to have a psychological assessment before they commence line-flying. Our personality questionnaire meets the requirements as defined, identifying the psychological traits and suitability of the flight crew in respect of the work environment; and reduces the likelihood of negative interference with the safe operation of the aircraft. Symbiotics also recommend that the mental wellbeing of the pilot is assessed at periodic intervals using our MindQ™ and MindFull assessments, as personality is stable over time but mental health varies according to the stresses and pressures being encountered both inside and outside work at any particular time.
