People with high values in this dimension are often successful in an environment of change that demands constant improvement and innovative approaches. They bring with them the endurance needed to solve related problems and introduce processes.
The test CURIOUS is completed randomly, in Likert scale format. Following an introductory instruction, individual job-related statements (items) are specified, which must be evaluated on a 7-level scale with regard to agreement/disagreement. All items of the item pool are in random order. The presentation typically takes place together with other personality scales in a test module. The items from the various tests are mixed together to reduce fatigue and transparency and thus socially desired response behaviour.
Curiosity is an important personality trait that predicts key professional aspects such as the profession-specific acquisition of knowledge and competence. It is also related to the ability to solve unknown or novel problems. The trait describes the extent to which people drive innovation or recognise the need to initiate changes. Empirical studies show that the test result makes it possible to predict professional success as well as to forecast school and university achievements.
CURIOUS is particularly recommended for knowledge-intensive and educational activities or for people in training positions.
