The concept of Grit has recently gained much attention in the personality testing literature. Grit has been defined as perseverance and passion for achieving long term goals. It is therefore evident why it would be of benefit for organizations to identify those individuals who possess "Grit" when the success of most organizations relies on the achievement of long-term goals.
The PsyMetrics' Elite Grit Profile is a general indicator of the individual's ability to work hard and persevere even in the face of setbacks and to stay focused on set goals regardless of any interference they may encounter. The six areas assessed by the Elite Grit Profile are:
The degree to which the individual is likely to be ambitious and driven to be the best.
The degree to which the individual is able to focus on long-term goals regardless of distractions or obstacles that may be encountered.
The degree to which the individual is likely to be hardworking, reliable and dedicated.
The degree to which the individual consistently approaches work duties and projects with a positive attitude.
The degree to which the individual is likely to be self-assured, is not overly affected by what others think of him or her, and is confident in his or her decisions and actions.
The Elite Grit Profile Predicts:
This test is ideal for identifying individuals who are likely to achieve their objectives in the face of setbacks or distractions. Those with Grit will do what is needed to accomplish their goals.
