The 4-color model

The well-known 4-color model (blue, red, yellow, green) provides insight into personal preferences in an easy to use and memorable way. It is precisely this simplicity that makes the model so popular: tell me what your first color is, and I’ll have a better understanding of how to interact with you.

The 4-color model is based on the ideas of Carl Gustav Jung; the Swiss psychologist and psychiatrist who introduced the concept of psychological preferences. The Bridge Personality Big Five + 4-color report links those preferences to 4 colors. This provides helpful insight into your own reactions and behavior and helps you to understand why other people display completely different behavior.

The Big Five personality model

The Big Five personality model is a scientifically grounded framework that evaluates five core dimensions of personality. Known as the Big Five, these traits include Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Emotional Stability. The model in a Big Five personality test is also referred to as the Five-Factor model or the OCEAN model. Due to its robust scientific foundation, the Big Five personality assessment is highly regarded and widely used in the recruitment and selection process of employees.

What does the candidate want to develop? Find out with Normative-Ipsative split technology®

A modern (adaptive) personality test such as The Bridge Personality uses both normative and ipsative propositions. Normative means that the candidate scores a statement on a scale from one to nine (1 = very strongly disagree, 9 = very strongly agree). In this case, ipsative means that the candidate ranks questions from one to six (1 = least applicable to me, 6 = most applicable to me). By combining normative and ipsative statements, it is possible to provide insight into socially desirable response behavior and consenting responses up to the level of the personality dimension.

Using Normative-Ipsative split technology®, The Bridge Personality Report then provides insight into steering response behavior. This way, you can see exactly where a candidate has doubts. This doubt often provides valuable information about the competencies that the candidate would like to develop. An indispensable tool during the coaching and development of candidates.
