“SOSIE” is a French word translating as “a perfect resemblance to another”. Originally developed in Europe over 30 years ago, the SOSIE is an online assessment online questionnaire measuring personality traits, and interpersonal and personal values in one, single instrument.
Measuring the How AND Why of Behaviour
Personality measures how we do something (e.g. a tendency to focus on big picture vs focus on detail), and our preferred ways of behaving.
Values measure why we do something (e.g. enjoying striving to master a difficult problem). Our values are what motivate us and encourge us to behave in a certain way.
The SOSIE Manager Report has been designed to help in the process of hiring and developing managers and supervisors across all industry sectors by measuring both personality traits as well as values. This Report presents an individual’s fit to eight soft skills competencies that have been identified, through careful research, as important for success in most managerial and supervisory roles. An individual’s responses to this questionnaire determine the level of fit related to these eight personality and value traits. The level of fit—shown in the SOSIE Manager Report—allows individuals to be compared; those with desired levels may be more likely to perform better in the role, hence stay within the profession or position than those with a lower fit.
