ADAPT Personality Questionnaire

Our Personality Questionnaire 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.

Symbiotics Ltd

The Symbiotics' Personality Questionnaire includes traits that are specific to the aviation sector, such as the FAA's hazardous attitudes, in addition to other relevant traits, such as ability to adapt and pressure management, and has been designed to focus on the ICAO competencies.

Derived from a theoretical basis to support the measurement of these traits, our Personality Questionnaire provides an overview of a variety of traits, which can be used in combination as part of a battery of appropriate tests.

The questionnaire also examines preferences under pressure, identifying behaviours that can cause difficulty under pressure and impact on others in the team environment.

Our Psychologists Comments

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™ assessment, 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.
