There are many personality test questionnaires in use today. The basic objective of such questionnaires however is to assess one’s personality based on responses issued on the questionnaire. This helps a person to understand him/herself better. Personality questionnaires are also used by employers as a recruitment tool for purposes of identifying the right people fit for a specific position. Usually, this is done because some positions are better held by people with a specific personality type.
