Contradictions in behavioural comments

Contradictions in behavioural comments can say a lot about the adaptability of your candidates or employees.

Explore how our flagship assessment, PersProfile, reveals both the richness and complexity of human profiles.

Contradictions in PersProfile comments are an interesting subject to explore. It is normal to find that the results of behavioural assessment tools sometimes lead to apparently contradictory comments. Is this to be considered a flaw or a quality?
While some people may think at first glance that it’s a weakness of the kind you find in unserious horoscopes, there’s another reading that corresponds much more closely to reality.
In fact, these contradictions provide a wealth of information about the complexity of individuals and their soft skills.
One of the keys to managing these contradictions is to see them as complementary facets rather than rigid opposites.
Behavioural assessments, including those of PersProfile, based on Marston, Jung and Emotional Intelligence, aim to provide an overall picture of a person’s behaviour, taking different dimensions into account. For example, an individual may display left-brain (logical, analytical) and right-brain (creative, intuitive) characteristics depending on the context or situation. This means that feedback can vary depending on the circumstances.

It is essential to remember that these tools do not rigidly categorise individuals, but rather offer a range of behaviours that evolve over time. Contradictions are therefore often a reflection of a person’s flexibility and adaptability in different situations.

To get the most out of behavioural assessments, we recommend using feedback holistically, focusing on strengths and targets for improvement, while understanding that each individual is unique and complex. This is precisely what makes them strong!

Soft skills are an essential asset for professional success, and managing contradictions in feedback can contribute to more enlightened leadership and more balanced decision-making.

If you’d like to find out more about how PersProfile manages these contradictions, or if you have any specific questions about how to use it, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We would be delighted to provide you with further information and help you interpret the results.
