16pf® Competency Report

Measures the qualities and attributes needed for success in a particular role

The 16pf® Competency Report helps managers identify the people they need to achieve their objectives for specific roles.

Based upon global research and years of experience, our model includes 20 competencies that are commonly used across organizations. You can either:

  • Generate 16pf Competency Reports for all 20 competencies.
  • Use one of our research-based Representative Competency Models to guide you in identifying the competencies for your positions. We encourage you to examine the competencies in each model in light of the requirements for the particular position in your organization and adjust the model appropriately when selecting the final (usually 6 to 8) competencies for your job.
  • Work with our highly-experienced consulting team to create a custom report around a smaller set of organization-specific competencies, using either your existing competency model or a new one.

The 16pf® Questionnaire is a comprehensive measure of normal adult personality that assesses 16 Primary personality factors and five Global factors, based on more than 70 years of research. It is comprised of 155 attitudinal/behavioral statements and a computer-adaptive (CAT) reasoning section. The assessment takes about 30 minutes to complete. It is suitable for both selection and development and is normed on a stratified random sample of more than 2,500 adults based upon the U.S Census.
