Elite behavioural psychometrics for human resources
"[Qualia] is the best tool available for building
self-awareness and getting behavioural change. I dedicated the whole of last
year to researching these tools, to find the best one. This was the winner."
Ross McLelland, Managing Director,
Qualia|Personality is a sophisticated
psychometric personality questionnaire that gives you a comprehensive yet easy to
understand description of an individual.
Qualia is intended for professional use
by organisational psychologists, human resources practitioners, executive coaches,
recruitment professionals and career guidance specialists. It informs:
- Selection decisions
- Executive coaching
- Career coaching
- Team building
- Learning & development
- Cultural change / organisational development
Importantly, it is also easy for you to access
and comes at a reasonable price.
Designed by leading international experts, Qualia now has over ten years
research and development behind it. Qualia's unique 'nipsative' question
format and British standard statistical trialling offer superior accuracy
over other tools in its class.
It's also written in culturally
neutralised English so you can use it internationally wherever first and second
language English is spoken, including the UK/Europe, America/Canada, Australia/New
Zealand, India, Singapore, Malaysia, The Philippines, Hong Kong and South Africa.
Results are displayed as a peer-group
comparison, so you can see your staff or clients' traits relative to
what is ‘normal’ for other working people.
Qualia has 87 question groups
comprised of 261 items and takes about 25 minutes to complete.
"Love the format - easy to read...
More comprehensive than the 16PF, less jargony than the MBTI ... Head and shoulders
above DISC. A very practical, useful tool."
Andrew McColl, Mercer Human Resources
Consultants (WM Mercer)
Qualia produces very individualised

"I am extremely impressed with
the depth of [Qualia]. It doesn't pigeon-hole people but creates a truly comprehensive
profile of an individual. Nonetheless it's surprisingly clear and very easy
It's particularly great for its ability
to clarify areas for personal development. I’m amazed at the ‘Interpretation
Guide’. It’s all exceedingly well put together."
Phillip Allison, MD, Corporate Edge Consultants (Ex-Regional Director,

“Excellent, thank you very much.
Having done some similar things in the past, I can say that it's a good reflection…
Crucially, the presentation of results is the best I've seen."

Getting started is easy. Talk to
us about your particular circumstances and we’ll advise you how to proceed.
No training is required as a corporate psychologist from Insight
Matters will manage the whole process for you.
However, if you are a corporate
psychologist or human resources specialist and would like to use Qualia
independently, you may do so after attending one of the excellent
Occupational Personality Profiling training courses.
