The Predictive Index Behavioural Assessment is a scientifically validated behavioural assessment that accurately predicts workplace behavior. The PI offers a clear understanding of the unique behavioural needs and drives that make people work.


What is PI Behavioural Assessment?

The PI Behavioural Assessment is a brief (5-7 minutes), untimed, free-choice (as opposed to forced-choice) assessment that presents respondents with a list of adjectives and asks them to identify which ones fit them and their current role.

It is a highly effective, yet simple, reliable and scientifically-validated assessment that measures core behavioural drives. Where these drives fall creates a behavioural pattern that provides a simple framework for understanding the workplace behaviours of your people.

The assessment is available in multiple formats (paper, online, mobile) in more than 70 languages. The Predictive Index. LLC is the official publisher of the assessment.

The PI Behavioural Assessment™ is a scientifically validated, free-choice, stimulus-response assessment that was created through a normative sample of thousands of people. It has been investigated in nearly 500 criterion-related validity studies across almost all jobs and countries, built to the standards of the American Psychological Association (APA), Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychologists (SIOP), and the International Test Commission (ITC).



The PI Behavioural Assessment predicts four primary personality constructs (A-Dominance, B-Extraversion, C-Patience, and D-Formality ) and two secondary constructs (Factors E — Decision Making, and M — Response Level).

These are “normal” (non-clinical) characteristics that describe, explain and predict day-to-day workplace behaviours. The PI Behavioural Assessment provides two patterns of an individual’s workplace behavior:

1. SELF. The Self-pattern is a reflection of an individual’s natural drives and needs and how they will naturally react in an environment or in situations.
2. SELF-CONCEPT. The Self-Concept pattern reflects how an individual may be adapting their natural behaviours to the expectations of their current work environment.
