Who can benefit from the Judgement Index™?

The Index is effective from the CEO to the unskilled labourer. The Index is not a determination of skill set competencies, rational intelligence, or emotional stability; it is a determination of the capacity for good Judgement. Improvements in Judgement will improve an organisation from the boardroom to the mailroom.

If your boardroom happens to be an athletic playing field, the Judgement Index™ can help you achieve your best performance. Top ranked teams and individuals use the knowledge gained from the Index to drive them to the upper echelons of their sport and profession.

How long before we see results?

Results in hiring / workforce selection will be seen immediately. Additional results are usually apparent within three months as decision making and Judgement processes improve.

We already use a personnel assessment tool. Why use yours?

Most Inventories are either personality profiles or psychiatric wellness indexes. Personality profiles may produce interesting information, but personality is simply not a good predictor of success. For example, it is not difficult to identify excellent managers, successful doctors, pilots, CEO's, soldiers, engineers, or customer service reps, etc. all with completely different personalities. However, any manager, doctor, pilot, CEO, soldier, engineer, or customer service rep with bad Judgement, no matter what their personality, will not perform as desired. The Judgement Index ™ can be used effectively in conjunction with, or instead of, various other assessment tools. In addition, studies how shown personality profiles are simply not reliable predictors of job success.

What resources and efforts will be required of my organisation to implement the Index?

Those making hiring decisions can be trained in less than two hours on how to use initial results. For in-house expertise, we suggest training approximately one company expert per one thousand company employees. Depending on organisation specifics, this may vary. In-house training for company level expertise takes about three days and does not have to be done in one straight-through session.

Once an agreement is reached, what do we do next?

Several things usually happen concurrently. Company employees involved in the hiring process need only a few hours of training to integrate the Index and see results almost immediately. Senior executive and Board member in-depth assessments will be scheduled at the convenience of the members, the sooner the better. As soon as possible employees selected for in-depth knowledge of the Index will be scheduled to receive three days of administrator training. Senior executive consultation regarding best organisational uses and implementation is at the convenience of the member, but highly recommended as soon as possible. Creation of customized reports and determining best performer standards usually occurs immediately after company administrators have been trained. Also immediately at the conclusion of company administrator training, if not sooner, the process of administering the Index throughout the organisation begins.

Can someone trick or game the Index? How certain are the results?

The Index is very difficult to game. The words and phrases used in the Index give little indication as to a desirable order of ranking. They do not ask what a person thinks of themselves; they ask them to think. In addition, if someone does attempt to trick the Index, validity indicators suggest a retake.

How does the Judgment Index™ work?

An individual, based on their unique personal value system, ranks two sets of eighteen selections from best to worst. Even though the Index takes only about fifteen minutes to complete, the Index logic and the math used to score the Index are highly sophisticated. The Judgment Index's creator was a sophisticated mathematician and used calculus to help create and score the Index. There are over 12.8 quadrillion possible combinations. Based on these combinations and very sophisticated analysis, plus forty years of clinical practice and applied interpretations, the capacity for judgment is measured by the Judgment Index™

How long does it take to complete?

For most people, the Index takes about fifteen to twenty minutes to complete.

Is it like the Myers Briggs, MMPI, or IQ test?

No, Myers Briggs is a personality profile and the MMPI is used to help determine psychiatric wellness. An IQ test measures rational intelligence. The Judgment Index™ is used to determine the capacity for good judgment.

So you're telling me that you can actually measure judgment? That sounds impossible!

 Most people don't easily come to the understanding that judgment can actually be measured. It seems surreal, vague, and philosophical; something relegated to academia to be discussed among the elite intellectuals of the world, not something that organizations can actually put into practice and use to improve everyday real world lives. We understand that feeling, for all of us at Judgment Index™ USA at one point or another had those same doubts and large scale skepticism. We invite you to talk to us, learn how we can help your organization, and to experience this magical instrument for yourself. If you can measure your judgment, you can understand your judgment. If you can understand your judgment, you can improve your judgment. If you can improve your judgment, you can improve the world.

Does the Index discriminate against any particular group of people?

The results are not skewed based on any race, religion, disability, age or gender.

Has the Judgment Index™ been approved for use by the EEOC?

The Judgment Index™ meets the rigorous EEOC standards set by the United States Federal Government Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) for employment assessments.
