Reflect on the correlation between personality tests, behavior, and performance at school or work. Research studies linking psychological tests and real-life behavior.
Identify the variables in these tests (e.g., subject background, social upbringing, past experiences, test material, testing process, etc.). Consider how these variables may influence behavior. Identify possible gaps in the tests you research. Identify possible correlations between external influences on behavior and personality test scores. Reflect on whether individual differences play a role in influencing behavior. Take a position on whether or not personality tests correlate with an individual’s performance at school or work.
