The Birkman Method is a favorite personality and career assessment of those experienced in the industry because it paints a richer picture of an individual.
Just like how TV screens have varying resolutions – standard definition, high definition, 4K – personality assessments have different levels of detail as well. Birkman is at the far end of the spectrum, giving the highest level of insight into the motivations, perceptions, and behaviors of a person.
Birkman is the premier advanced assessment because it uncovers and interprets more data about behavior, motivations, and personality. Birkman feedback is presented in a way that is user-friendly and easy to segment. If you’re primarily interested in one element of an individual’s personality, you can focus on just that element of their report.
Here are a few ways that Birkman is different:
- The only assessment that measures underlying Needs – the support you need from others and environments to be your most effective self
- Combines behavioral and occupational data in one assessment – for a greater understanding of a person’s ideal fit within an organization
- Examines personality and perceptions in a social context – promotes greater self-management and encourages mutual respect among colleagues
Because The Birkman Method is so deep reaching, we’ve developed a training program for those wanting to interpret our advanced Signature Suite of reports. For those looking to experience Birkman at a starting level, we’ve also developed Birkman Basics, a suite of the most popular Birkman reports.
