Mercer | Mettl’s Personality Map (MPM)

The MPM is a comprehensive measure of adult personality. The activity assesses personality through 28 traits covered in 175 questions, answered on a 6-point Likert-based agreement scale. It has been developed at par with modern assessment standards, specifically for use in occupational settings.

We use MPM psychometric survey for mapping to evaluate the personal characteristics that most impact our behavior and leadership style. Mapping is a process linking the identified competences of such a model with the personality traits that can be predictors of such competences. The mapping is carried out by a team of psychometric experts who are able to take advantage of the scientific literature and experience regarding personality questionnaires and their role in predicting specific behaviors.
