Overall Satisfaction with PI Behavioral Assessment

PI is used within various departments at our company, but primarily begins with the Human Resources department. It's a tool we use for hiring, team communication, and employee relations issues. For many of our positions, we have a PRO profile, meaning that we have an ideal PI profile for someone to be successful in their position. It is not a requirement for someone to have this profile to have success, but it is useful in identifying areas that may be not so natural for someone in their role based on their own PI profile. It is only one piece of the puzzle for an employee, not the end all be all.


  • Comparison of PI Pro profiles to potential applicants.
  • Useful training and accessibility of the site.
  • Application of the drives and motivations.
  • Explanation of M Factor scores.


  • Ease of use for new individuals searching the access PI site.
  • Community usage should be made available to all trained PI personnel.
  • Ideally would like to see potential "conflict points" when comparing two individual profiles together.
  • Quicker hiring times.
  • Increased communication amongst teams.
  • Ease in understanding motivation and reward options.
  • Myers Briggs and DiSC
There are many different personality assessments that are currently available for companies to utilize, but in my opinion, PI provided something that no other assessment tool was able to. It really is an insight into how someone perceives scenarios not only at home but in their worklife. It can tell you more about their drives, initiatives, etc. so that you know how to best approach a situation to come to a win-win. If I had to start from the beginning and pick a new personality assessment tool, it would be PI.
PI is fantastic when trying to understand the behaviors, motivations, internal drives, etc. of your workforce population. The PI profile allows people to have insight into why individuals perceive situations and scenarios the way that they do. It tells you if recognition is important to them, or if it is something that may produce anxiety. Overall, I think PI is essential for communication amongst teams.

Using PI Behavioral Assessment

Overall I do like the layout and user friendliness of the PI software, however, there are certain things that are not intuitive to someone who is just beginning to use the access PI system. The biggest difficulty that I still have as a user of the software is to generate a PRO profile request, or to do the comparison of a PI to the pro.
