Integrity vs personality tests
Integrity is an evaluation of values, attitudes and work ethic. Integrity is influenced by decisions and therefore can be subject to change. Personality on the other hand, is a reflection of our nature and thus cannot change. A person cannot be held responsible for specific personality traits, but can be held responsible for their work-based integrity and ethical behaviour.
Beyond personality testing
Current research shows that integrity assessment is one of the best predictors of overall work performance and that it is more accurate than personality assessment in identifying counter-productive behaviour.
