An introduction to the Trait Personality Inventory

Abstract

This article introduces the Trait Personality Inventory (referred to simply as Trait), designed and published online by Aston Business Assessments. Trait is a measure of 13 personality dimensions, which are used by practitioners and clients in a range of settings including recruitment and selection, employee and leadership development, and coaching. I provide an overview of Trait and the practical set-up of the tool, including the reports available to practitioners. This is followed by reliability and validity evidence, highlighting the scientific foundations and practice implications from research using Trait. Finally, example cases of clients using Trait in different sectors and assessment settings are described, highlighting relevant implications for using the tool in practice and applications of personality assessment more widely.
