ADAPT Personality Questionnaire


This assessment is designed to measure a candidate's personality, values, behaviour and attitudes. Each of the questions are designed by psychologists to identify specific aspects of the psyche as well as personality or behavioural traits.

It can be used by recruiters or Human Resources as a sifting process in a recruitment or promotion process, or to identify those candidates best suited to the role, team or company.


Symbiotics' ADAPT Personality Questionnaire is designed for use within businesses and for an individual for personal development. Within businesses, the results of this assessment have to be interpreted by a certified professional to ensure accurate and constructive feedback. For individual purchases, a feedback telephone call conducted in English (ICAO level 4 recommended) will be arranged with one of our Psychologists to help you interpret your results.

User Requirements

This assessment has a psychological basis and therefore if you purchase this assessment as a business you are required to have a certified staff member to be able to interpret and present back the results.

Candidate Report

As a response to recent feedback we have designed an ADAPT Personality Questionnaire report that is candidate focused, to help each of your applicants gain a detailed understanding of their self-reported preferences. This report can help candidates to develop their self-awareness and approach, which is likely to benefit their performance throughout the next stages of their application.

This new report presents the candidate's results in a supportive way that is easy for each candidate to interpret, without report Certification Training.

Just as a reminder, the current ADAPT Personality Questionnaire report is client focused and we do not advise this is passed on to the candidate.

Our Psychologists say

Symbiotics' ADAPT Personality Questionnaire has been used for some years to successfully identify individuals whose personal style preferences best suit them for work in high stakes roles. Based on the Five Factor model of personality, additional elements pick up on traits that are particularly undesirable in these roles. The profile can also be tailored to fit the national and organisational culture of the employing company.

Recent changes to the EASA regulations require all pilots to have a psychological assessment before they commence line-flying. Our personality questionnaire meets the requirements as defined, identifying the psychological traits and suitability of the flight crew in respect of the work environment; and reduces the likelihood of negative interference with the safe operation of the aircraft. Symbiotics also recommend that the mental wellbeing of the pilot is assessed at periodic intervals using our MindQ™ and MindFull assessments, as personality is stable over time but mental health varies according to the stresses and pressures being encountered both inside and outside work at any particular time.
