Personality Based Assessments
The 16PF (16 Personality Factor Questionnaire) has long been recognised as one of the most popular and widely used instruments for the assessment of normal personality. The 16PF5 (1994) enhanced this reputation through a more contemporary presentation, administration and interpretation. In the mid 1990s, the Australian version of this popular personality assessment tool was developed.
Further research were done on this tool and in July 2002, the items have been rewritten allowing the 16PF5-AUS to provide more soundly based interpretations for applications within Australian occupational, vocational and clinical contexts. In addition, comparison group data is based on a general Australian population sample and research is ongoing to provide comparison group for specific occupational samples. As the Australian population has a large number of Asian immigrants, many clients from Asian countries such as Malaysia, Taiwan, and China also use the 16PF5-AUS version. Hence D Jeromel uses the 16PF5-AUS with their clients to minimise effects of cultural effects, if any. Primary factors in the 16PF5 include Warmth, Reasoning, Emotional Stability, Dominance, Liveliness, Rule-Consciousness, Social Boldness, Sensitivity, Vigilance, Abstractedness, Privateness, Apprehension, Openness to Change, Self-Reliance, Perfectionism and Tension. The five global factors include Extraversion, Anxiety, Tough-Mindedness, Independence and Self-Control.
The 16PF5 is a restricted psychometric test, only certified psychologists and those with the appropriate qualifications have unrestricted access to this tool. There are three report options available from D Jeromel Health-Psych Consulting:
- 16PF Basic Interpretative Report (available in English and Mandarin versions)
- 16PF Human Resource Development Report16PF Business Selection Development Report (available only in English versions)
- 16PF Leadership Coaching Report
15FQ Personality Set
The 15FQ+ is a normative, trichotomous response, personality test that has been developed based on the 16 core personality dimensions that were first developed by Cattell and his colleagues in 1946. The 15FQ+ applies Cattell’s personality dimensions directly to the workplace. This provides a more occupational orientated personality test as an alternative to the ‘Sixteen Personality Factors’ series of tests which are traditionally more clinically based. Since its development in 1991 the 15FQ has been used widely throughout the world and enhances its reputations as one of the most well researched assessments of normal personality available today.

Leadership and Managerial Competencies
Often, team members left shortly after a newly promoted manager took over the reins. Yet this manager had been a strong performing staff prior to that. What could be lacking in the leading skills of this new manager? Or was it a leading style which clashes with existing team culture?
Combining American and European Management Competencies frameworks, our leadership and managerial soft skills competency assessments enable the management to prepare and develop to be groomed personnel. As well as to match the experiences given in resumes of job candidates.

CULTURE FAIR INTELLIGENCE TEST (CFIT)
The Culture Fair Intelligence Test (CFIT) measures individual intelligence in a manner designed to reduce as much as possible the influence of verbal fluency, cultural climate, and educational level. The test is non-verbal and requires only that examinees be able to perceive relationships in shapes and figures. The CFIT is extremely time-efficient in that it is a timed test of only 12 minutes. The CFIT contains four subtests involving different perceptual tasks: series, classification, matrices and conditions, so that the composite intelligence measure avoids reliance on a single skill. Research has shown that intelligence makes an important contribution to the prediction of skill acquisition, problem solving, decision making and other performance related competencies. The CFIT is an excellent tool to use to assist any selection decision, particularly when the role will require the individual to be able to make decisions, think strategically and manage a range of tasks at once. The CFIT can be used in situations where it is important to: • Discover if the achievement of an individual is what would be expected from his or her intelligence; • Assess potential to perform job-relevant tasks that involve cognitive ability; • Increase the effectiveness of career development decisions.
Verbal & Numerical Reasoning (ML-MQ/PL-PQ)
The Higher Test ML-MQ and PL-PQ are parallel forms of a group of tests designed to measure general intellectual ability, the ability to see relationships and to solve problems. The linguistic section contains verbal analogies, vocabulary, similarities and verbal reasoning. The quantitative section includes number series, arithmetic reasoning and number matrices. These tests are suitable for use with students (with secondary 3 or higher education) and adults. Norms are provided for secondary students (aged 15) and for first year students at colleges of technical and further education.

Both forms, A and B, have a linguistic (L) section and a quantitative (Q) section intended to measure general intelligence as demonstrated by the ability to see relationships and to solve problems. The tests are timed and allocated 35 minutes (15 minutes for AL/BL and 20 minutes for AQ/BQ).
