More Personality

The Pearman explores the complexities of personality patterns and is based on understanding an individual’s personality at multiple levels. It provides the freedom of representing personality along a continuum and does not require choosing a preference for one personality type over another.

More Insight and Flexibility

The Pearman assessment allows you to identify your client’s behaviours that are most natural in contrast to those that are needed or performed in day-to-day life. Explore where the differences lie, where the similarities are, and measure what flexibility your client has to operate outside of their comfort zone with the Pearman FlexIndex.

More Coachable Moments

The Pearman offers both Coach and Client reports, developed to ensure your client can grow within, and outside of, their personality results. You can compare your client’s scores to a representative population, providing context to understand the full scope of their personality and flex.

More Science

The Pearman is a normed assessment complete with scores, validity indicators, item-level information, and rigorous psychometric backing; bringing a scientific approach to personality type.


More Integration

The Pearman integrates personality type with an individual’s flexibility (the FlexIndex) to provide a complete picture of an individual’s functioning. You can also add the EQ-i 2.0® module to explore type and emotional intelligence from an integrated perspective.

The Pearman offers universal insight that can be used in any number of contexts, including:

  • Individual Self-awareness & Development
  • Group/Team Development
  • Leadership Development
  • Coaching/Mentoring
