Personality tests have been used for the last few years as a successful prediction model for better and more efficient teams and with a good reason. Recruiters can source for certain personality characteristics but it can take years for a person to master and automate the personality discovery process that psychology can unravel.

One such test is categorizing people into 4 personality colors that are based on two axes developed by Carl Jung (Introvert versus Extravert and Thinking versus Feeling). In this way, four quadrants can be made that describe a certain personality that is represented by a different color: red, yellow, green and blue.

The best thing about these four color principles is that there is not one color better than the other and the best teams are formed by having all of the colors represented. Knowing what your preferred way of working is, and the preferred personality traits of your colleagues can help you improve your overall teamwork.

More interestingly, most people are not 100% one color, as both axes can be seen as a spectrum on which you can move from completely left to completely right. However, most people do have one dominant preferred color. However, teams can benefit from having a combination of people under all of these dominant colors.

The Bridge Personality Test (4-color test)

Based on this 4-color principle TestGroup has developed The Bridge Personality Test to bring the benefits of psychological reliability to your company’s efficacy. It combines the Big Five, the 16 Jung Types, and the well-known 4-color model to make your teams faster and more efficient.

This 4-color test (The Bridge Personality) is a very reliable and valid personality test to gauge the 4-colors of your employees and job applicants. Because this smart test uses algorithms to measure whether the test taker was honest during its completion, you always get a reliable and valid picture of your candidate or employee. A team report is also available for teams after the completion of the test which is immediately accessible to your recruiting team.

More importantly, the 4-color personality test provides insight into peoples’ behavioral preferences. Using the easy and accessible 4-color model (blue, red, yellow, and green) the test offers concrete tools for accelerated personal growth and team development. Additionally, it improves sales effectiveness and leadership development, as well as the development of work performance at an individual, team, and organizational level.

This test can clearly map the strength of employees and improve your team's performance by combining members with different dominant characteristics that make them efficient in multiple working situations.
