The PI Behavioural Assessment™ measures workplace behaviour according to four key factors, known as “drives.” The four drives are: Dominance, Extraversion, Patience and Formality.
- Dominance is the drive to exert influence over people or events. Low-dominance individuals are more collaborative and cooperative, whereas high-dominance people are independent, assertive, and comfortable with conflict.
- Extraversion is the drive for social interaction. Low-extraversion individuals value privacy, reflection and analysis. High-extraversion people are sociable, crave connection, and value recognition.
- Patience is the drive to seek consistency and stability. Low-patience people need variety, work fast, and can handle multiple priorities, while high-patience people prefer steady paces and are generally stable and loyal to their organizations.
Formality is the drive to conform to rules and structure. Low-formality individuals need freedom and flexibility and tolerate ambiguity and spontaneity. High-formality people are disciplined and often see themselves as experts. They need clear expectations in order to minimize the risk of error for the company.
