What is the Simmons Personal Survey?

The Simmons Personal Survey, with over 100 performance scores, accurately and objectively measures the most important job-related emotional and behavioral tendencies, such as: 

Energy; Stress; Optimism; Self-Esteem: Commitment to Work; Attention to Detail; Routine vs Change; Courage; Decisiveness; Assertion; Anger vs Tolerance; Consideration; Sociability

Every one of these Key Success Traits has been proven in hundreds of research studies (both medical & psychological) to correlate with personal health, job performance, and job enjoyment.

For each trait, we show: their typical or usual behavior, variance of the tendency, how they feel and see themselves, variance of how they feel and see themselves, how they behave before others, variance of how they behave before others, how this fits the job, how this either helps or harms their job performance, and recommendations to improve performance.

The person's characteristics are then compared to one of our 32 validated job norms or to a customized norm. This allows you to accurately predict job performance in any job, making the Survey an excellent tool for hiring, placement, management, personal development, training needs assessment, and outplacement.

Taking the Test:  The test is given on our web page and is very easy to complete. It can be used by anyone with a 6th grade level in English. A Spanish version is also available.  We ask 720 very short questions, giving us a huge amount of data to insure validity and to support our multiple scales.  Yet, the test only takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. That is a wonder in itself. It can be taken on any type of computer (both PC and Apple), touchpad, or smartphone, using any internet browser, 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.  Our 2 duplicate test websites have 100% up-time.




Survey Report Options?

Once the test is completed, the answers are entered into our grading program.  Based upon your choice, a report is created.  The following are our report options. 

The In-Depth Narrative Graph

See image below.

A 1-page graph and detailed report.  Shows behavioral tendencies, expected job performance, behavioral range, role-playing, direction now moving, recommendations, & total job rating.   The person can be compared to one of our 31 standard norms or to a custom norm designed for any company.  This report option is used for hiring employees and for coaching.

What a Top Applicant Looks Like:  Look at the sample below.  Note the green bars easily showing you that this person has the characteristics for success in their job.  This man was a star Executive in his company. 

As you read the report, you can easily see what made him outstanding.  You can easily see his high health and energy, low stress, positive attitude, high self-esteem, strong work ethic, attention to detail, ability to handle and make changes, courage and determination, ability to make decisions, assertiveness and leadership, reasonable patience, reasonable consideration for others, and ability to interact with others socially.  

What is amazing is that we gathered this information in just 30 minutes!


Aptitude Test Career Assessment Overview


What a Poor Hire Looks Like:  Below we show a report of someone who did very poorly at their job.  This is easily shown by the red bars. We Surveyed this person after they had been hired, before the company used the Survey.  As you read this report, you can see the exact reasons why this person was failingExcessive Stress; A Negative Critical Attitude; Low Self-Esteem; Low Attention to Detail (error prone); Excessive (impractical) Change - inability to follow routine methods; Dominating Decisions; Bossing and Forcing People; Extreme Anger and Vindictiveness; No Empathy or Concern for Others.  And yes, this person was exhibiting all of this.  

Employee Problems and Turnover can be Avoided:  Many people can be helped, but this person was not cooperative and had to be terminated.  He was not terminated because of the test, but due to what they had already done.  Had this person been Surveyed previous to hiring, these problems would not have entered the work place, harmed customers, etc.  And they would have known in 30 minutes.

The EQ Profile

This report is our best selling report.  It is equally useful for hiring, for personal development, and for career counseling.  

Our grid of 32 job categories measures every job that exists from filling gas to being President.  The career grid is based on research we have continuously done since 1975, including the success patterns for each job.  At this point, it is also also a mathematical grid that covers all possible and all practical combinations.  So all jobs are represented in this grid.  

* Employers will find the category that matches a job that they are filling and can see how each applicant matches that category.  Their top candidates will have high category scores that are shaded in green for Ideal or in blue for Good.  

* People already in a job can learn how they fit and do not fit the job, and what they need to do to improve.  They can find the category that matches the job they are to do and can see the score pattern that predicts success in that type of job.  Recommendations for improvement are located in the right column of the report.  

* Those who want to know what career will bring them joy and success can see how they match each category.  Their best categories are shaded in green for Ideal and in blue for Good.  Their top three categories are also numbered.  The sample below is of someone who would do well as 1) a Marketing Executive, 2) a Creative Engineer, or 3) an Author.
