The PAIRIN Survey: Consists of a 300-word adjective checklist. Invite individuals to take the survey by sending direct emails through the PAIRIN system or by distributing the survey link to employees, students and/or applicants.
Attributes: PAIRIN measures over 100 soft skills and mindsets, known as attributes, because they account for 75% of what makes an individual successful in a career or program. Examples of attributes include creativity, self-assessment, resiliency, stress tolerance and responsibility.
Intensity Scale: Attributes are measured on an intensity scale – low, moderate and high – displaying the range where an individual scores for each. Depending on the target, high intensities may be desired for certain attributes while low intensities may be desired for other attributes.
Groupings: The 102 attributes can be mixed and matched into different groups to provide insights. Examples include drivers, thinking styles, and relating styles.
Targets: Developed to accompany a specific goal, targets are comprised of a grouping of attributes with specific ranges for those attributes. Based on your target, ranges indicate the desire intensities related to your specific goal. For example, a target can be created for a particular position, organization culture or general career readiness. A blue line running throughout the target indicates the aggregate data for the group or individual you have selected.
