Effective personality development with LINC’s BIG FIVE personality test – implemented according to the latest psychological standards.
Reflect. Understand. Grow.
The LINC PERSONALITY PROFILER represents a new approach in the area of personality analysis and development. It is an online tool that is based on the most psychologically sound models and creates a very differentiated profile of character traits, motives and skills.
The individual results enable a completely new look at your own personality and thus – ideally in connection with training or coaching – become the starting point for real, sustainable further development.
Serious science instead of pseudo psychology
Most personality tools on the market claim to be scientifically substantiated. However, this does not apply to many of these tools entirely or even at all. The PERSONALITY PROFILER, on the other hand, is consistently based on the BIG 5. Experts are unanimously of the opinion, that this is THE standard model of modern personality psychology. Thousands of high-quality, empirical scientific studies confirm the high quality of the BIG 5 model and its superiority over other approaches again and again.
Holistic identification and description of the personality
The PERSONALITY PROFILER enables a comprehensive, holistic recording and description of the human personality. In line with the findings of modern personality psychology, the character traits of the BIG 5 are supplemented by motives (“What drives me”) and competencies (“What are my talents?”). This combination offers the user very deep and differentiated insights into their own personality – and the coach, trainer or personnel developer has numerous exciting starting points for further measures.
High acceptance rate due to convincing mediation
A key distinguishing feature of the PERSONALITY PROFILER (in addition to the scientific quality) is the easily accessible, understandable and up-to-date communication of the results. No technical jargon, no excessive complexity – instead, a modern, visually appealing design with very fitting and inspiring texts. This ensures excellent user acceptance, arouses interest in dealing with the subject of personality and initiating self-reflection.
Versatile application opportunities
By presenting personality in a systematic and structured way the LPP provides the perfect starting point for coachings, trainings and consulting processes.
In order to broaden your understanding even more we offer various additional results such as depth profiles focusing on leadership, stress, agility, team and sales. In these depth profiles, your individual personality profile will be compared to selected parameters of your chosen subject.
Furthermore, we offer other variants of the LPP which have been specially tailored to the following fields: personnel selection (CANDIDATE CHECK), team development (TEAM CHECK), leadership development/360 degree feedback (EXTERNAL REVIEW) and conflict management/couple counselling (PARTNER CHECK).

My employees / colleagues are not very interested in scientific foundations. Why should I work with a scientific instrument? Doesn’t something simpler do the trick?
First of all, a serious scientific basis and high practical relevance as well as user acceptance are not mutually exclusive. The LINC PERSONALITY PROFILER is particularly valued by practitioners. Apart from that, the scientific foundation offers three very important advantages:
1. The personality traits that describe the personality best and most comprehensively are recorded – while non-scientific instruments often record any seemingly arbitrarily chosen characteristics.
2. The personality traits are measured very precisely and reliably – while non-scientific instruments often measure imprecisely, comparable to a badly calibrated scale that shows 80 kg today and 120 kg tomorrow for the same person.
3. The BIG FIVE model in particular has been examined in thousands of very high-quality scientific studies regarding the connections between the BIG FIVE and countless other criteria. Based on the BIG FIVE profile, reliable statements can be made about other topics, such as leadership or working style, whereas statements made on the basis of the results of non-scientific instruments are often more of a “horoscope” nature.
There are two ways you can use the PERSONALITY PROFILER. You can obtain certification by attending a two-day workshop in which you will learn how to use the tool professionally. You can then use the PERSONALITY PROFILER yourself with your employees, clients, etc. Alternatively, you can gain access to a broad network of certified trainers and coaches through us, who carry out training, development and coaching measures in your company based on the LINC PERSONALITY PROFILER.
Of course. We offer a wide range of workshops, training, development and coaching measures related to the PERSONALITY PROFILER tools, which we either carry out ourselves or via our broad network of professional, certified PERSONALITY PROFILER trainers / coaches. Please contact us, we will be happy to advise you.
The PERSONALITY PROFILER differs from other personality analysis tools in two significant ways: In contrast to many other tools, the LINC PERSONALITY PROFILER has a real scientific basis. In addition, the LINC PERSONALITY PROFILER impresses with its very appealing, easily understandable and modern way of result presentation.
The BIG FIVE model is by far the most recognized and best researched personality model. The BIG FIVE have been the dominant paradigm in modern personality psychology for over 20 years and have replaced other models (such as the outdated typological approaches according to C.G. Jung).
