Value Systems Testing & Cultural Research
Cultural fit is the third pillar of jobEQ's testing suite, and we measure it with the
VSQ. The test was built on the foundation of human values and culture research.
Essentially, the VSQ measures three things:
- Value Systems:
8 patterns of value systems that help determine what decisions you make
(see Clare W. Graves, Beck & Cowan)
- Value Hierarchy:
A ranking of the most important values for an individual
(inspired by Nietzsche)
- Social Pattern Variables:
10 patterns originally proposed by Talcott Parsons and often used in cultural and social research
(e.g. Trompenaars, Hampden-Turner, Hofstede, ...)
The Value Systems Questionnaire
is a new product, and for now it is free for our iWAM and COMET customers.
You can try out a beta-release in the Public
Profiling System. We are in contact with several specialists
for peer-reviewing this questionnaire. As soon as the peer-review is complete,
the questionnaire will be officially released.
