Assessio MiNT & MAP Personality Tests

Find out all about the Assessio personality questionnaire (MiNT and MAP), the different personality traits, and more.

Assessio MiNT

The MiNT (Measuring Integrity) personality test is designed to measure the personal characteristics of a person's behavior in work situations. MiNT is an online inventory based on the Five Factors model that predicts the risk of Counterproductive Work Behavior (CWB). The term CWB refers to intentional behaviors that are contrary to the interests of the company, such as tardiness, fake sick leave, rudeness, being careless, or stealing. CWBs are common to some extent in all companies.

The MiNT has no time limit but lasts about 15 minutes. It consists of 60 items. An individual who receives a low score on the MiNT is considered to be less productive at work, less conscientious, and with a greater degree of personal problems. An individual who receives a high MiNT score is more productive, works hard, follows the rules, and is cooperative with their boss and co-workers.

The Different Personalities (Types or Traits)

The test is based on a model composed of three factors: one factor higher than the others - Integrity and two lower factors - Task Orientation (T) and Interpersonal Orientation (I). The higher-order personality factor, Integrity, measures characteristics related to trustworthiness and credibility, as well as attitudes toward specific rules, values, norms, and expectations. The other two factors, T and I, measure whether a person focuses primarily on tasks or on interpersonal relationships in a work context.

OpennessImaginationActive imagination and the ability to picture things mentally can help colleagues see the big picture and present their tasks in a different light.
AestheticsAn interest in visual expressions and the search for impressions that stimulate personal emotions can influence the importance that an individual in a leadership position places on presentation.
Emotional sensitivity 
ExperiencePaying attention to one’s own state of mind as well as that of others helps create awareness that can be important in the workplace, especially for a leadership position.
MentalityThe need for inner emotional experiences determines how receptive a person is to new situations. The propensity to try new methods and approaches is governed by this quality.
ExtroversionSocial needThis subscale measures an individual’s sociability, interest in working with colleagues, as well as interprofessional and personal relationships. It also describes the need to connect with others.
Social imageThe social image describes how an individual behaves socially, i.e., towards others. It includes being shy, dominant, or reckless.
Pace of lifeThis subscale describes the level of energy and liveliness of an individual. It helps to determine what type of environment is best for him/her: peaceful and quiet or activity-filled and demanding of energy.
Excitement seekingThis subscale deals with the need for external stimulation and thrills. It compares the need for new challenges and drama with the need for a peaceful environment.
CheerfulnessThis subscale deals with the tendency to express positive feelings such as joy, happiness, and love. This is reflected in an individual’s good mood, contentment, cheerfulness, and emotion. A person who is always cheerful and expressive will receive a high score here, as opposed to someone who is more quiet and reserved in their emotions.
AgreeablenessConfidenceThis subscale deals with trust in others and how easily an individual trusts others. It reflects the individual's perception of the humanity and intentions of those around him. It allows us to determine if an individual sees the best in others or, on the contrary, if he or she is skeptical and reserved.
CommunicationThis subscale reflects the employee’s means of communication. It describes whether he or she expresses himself or herself in a direct manner or whether he or she is more careful with words and perhaps less clear. This makes it possible to determine the relationships with the people around him/her and gives information about the individual in the short and long term.
AltruismHere, the individual’s need to help and exist for others is described. This subscale is used to determine the tendency of an individual to put aside his or her problems in order to help others in need.
CompassionThis subscale reflects an individual’s degree of sympathy and compassion for others. It expresses how easily he or she is affected by the problems, needs, and feelings of those around him or her and how emotionally involved he or she can become.
