The Birkman Assessment: What to Expect
You will be contacted by a Career4Me team member with a personalized link to take your Birkman Assessment online.
The online Birkman Questionnaire has 3 parts completed by the respondent in this order: Most People, Self, and Interests. The Most People and Self sections are each made up of 125 true-false questions. The Interest section is made up of 48 multi-choice questions. Each section produces results for the 11 scales and 3 construct domains of The Birkman Method.
Our method produces a comprehensive measure of personality, motivation and interest, achieving what typically requires multiple assessments. With any assessment, the more it measures the more predictive it becomes and the greater level of understanding it provides.
The literature (Colbert, Mount, Harter, Witt, & Barrick, 2004; Terborg, Richardson, & Pritchard, 1980; Tett & Burnett, 2003; Zaccaro, 2007) demonstrates that three distinct factors account for the majority of variance in job performance and job satisfaction:
- Characteristics of the individual,
- Characteristics of the situation, and
- Interaction between the individual and the situation.
The Birkman Method measures all three of the above factors in detail to maximize prediction and understanding. Additionally, Birkman distinguishes between differences of kind and differences of degree, meaning the assessment is capable of identifying the characteristics and the intensity of the characteristic. Through this capability Birkman is able to describe the individual within a variety of situations to deliver practical, actionable information for understanding and managing self, relationships, and careers.
