The Achiever*

The Achiever is a unique test in that it combines mental and personality measurement in one instrument. It also has a scoring system that provides scores on a scale that can be related to the Normal Distribution and that easily relates scores to the job requirements by means of a benchmark of successful performers.

The Achiever measures the following aptitudes and traits:

Six Mental Aptitudes:
  • Mental Acuity – learning comprehension, judgment, reasoning and problem-solving ability
  • Business Terms – knowledge of basic business terms
  • Memory Recall – knowledge of current events as they relate to the job
  • Vocabulary – general English vocabulary skills
  • Numerical Perception – ability to handle numerically related tasks quickly and accurately
  • Mechanical Interest – measures interest in the mechanical area
Ten Personality Traits:
  • Energy – energy, drive, tension and stress levels
  • Flexibility – integrity, reliability, dependability and work ethics
  • Organization – personal orientation to plan and utilize time wisely
  • Communication – innate ability to meet and interact with people
  • Emotional Development – ego, self-esteem, self-confidence and ability to handle pressure
  • Assertiveness – strength and determination to get one’s way
  • Competitiveness – team orientation versus individualistic competitiveness
  • Mental Toughness – psychological stamina to deal with life and job problems
  • Questioning/Probing – instinct to question and probe rather than accepting things at face value
  • Motivation – security-motivated or recognition, incentive and commission oriented
The Achiever also contains two validity
scales to assess the accuracy of The Achiever report:
  • Distortion – frankness of the respondent as related to the statistical validity of the personality dimensions
  • Equivocation – consistent decision-making of the respondent as it relates to the accuracy of the personality dimensions measured

The Achiever uses the Stanine scoring system to compare an individual’s scores to a benchmark and the Normal Distribution. To learn more about the Stanine system and Benchmarking with The Achiever, please contact Strategic Essentials, Inc.

*Note:  The Achiever was created, validated and copyrighted in 1972 and is the first job related assessment in America.  It is recognized by both the EEOC and OFCCP.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator border_width=”3″][vc_column_text]

my job effectiveness by 20% if I use the results to capitalize on my strengths and
improve the areas that I would like to improve on”
