The Inside of Personality

The (MVPI) describes personality from the inside – the core goals, values, drivers, and interests that determine what we desire and strive to attain. By assessing values, you can understand what motivates candidates to succeed, and in what type of position, job, and environment they will be the most productive.  Values impact every aspect of peoples’ careers. The MVPI helps us understand what motivates people to succeed and in what type of position, job, and environment they will be the most productive, making it a powerful tool that can be used throughout the employee lifecycle.

The MVPI consists of 10 primary scales, which are further divided into five subscales or item themes.  The MVPI item themes provide additional interpretive power by categorizing individuals’ responses to the items that compose each MVPI scale.
