The Soft Skills analysis derives insights about personality characteristics from CVs, LinkedIn profiles, job offers, job descriptions, social media or other enterprise digital communications. This analysis uses descriptors of common language and classifies these in broad dimensions commonly used to describe the human personality.

The analysis is based on semantics but not on neuropsychological experiments. Personality characteristics that are most important in people's' lives will eventually become a part of their language.

For example, someone described as "conscientious" is more likely to use words as "always prepared" or "follow a schedule" rather than "fast and careless" or "the easy way".

 

The benefit for the ICT domain

With the support of an organisational psychologist, businesses and individuals can make more informed decisions, and make more effective use of limited resources. A few use cases:

  • Try to match personality characteristics of individuals (job-applicants) to the workplace (group/department).
  • Write a CV that resonates with the industry you like to work in.
  • Estimate whether there is a consistency between the ICT hard skills and soft skills in a CV.
  • Try to predict academic achievement.
