The Predictive Index® Basics

The Predictive Index methodology leverages science, technology, and knowledge transfer to help address talent acquisition, talent development, change management, and growth strategy initiatives in a business setting.

The Predictive Index® survey is a managerial assessment tool that provides insight into the natural workplace behaviors of prospective and existing employees – resulting in improved hiring decisions, team performance, overall communication, and workforce productivity.

A key element of the PI® system is the education of key managers within your organization in the interpretation and use of Predictive Index data. In the PI Management Workshop™ managers become skilled at working with all the elements of PI and gain insights into the many ways PI can be used to improve performance throughout their business.


The PI Behavioral Assessment™ is an untimed, free choice, stimulus-response tool that measures an individual’s motivating drives and needs.

The assessment has been used by thousands of businesses around the globe for more than 60 years to tie their people strategy to their business strategy. Use the Behavioral Assessment to assist in hiring, coaching, motivating, and developing employees

The Four Factors

All Drives.png


Drives and Needs
When it comes to how we act at work, we all have traits. Traits are habits, thought patterns, and emotions. And a given trait produces a drive to have certain things. These drives create needs, and these needs motivate us to behave in a way that satisfies the associated need.

Consider what happens when you’re hungry: you find something to eat. Your survival drive creates a hunger need, and thus the logical behavior of ordering a hoagie from your favorite sub shop.

Dominance: The drive to exert one’s influence

Extraversion: The drive for social interaction with other people Patience: The drive for consistency and stability
Formality: The drive to conform to rules and structure


A person’s behavioral pattern provides a nuanced understanding of their drives and needs.


When you need to understand someone at a quick glance, our refined reference profiles can distill countless behavioral drives into a handful of memorable labels.
