Conditions: This means that the PDA can not evaluate the psychological health of people ...

Recall that a person's success is not only determined by your Job Profile, but also influences their experience, training, motivation, guidance and leadership among various other factors.

Is the test psicométrico (PDA) endorsed scientifically?

William Moulton Marston (1893-1947) Psychologist and inventor, developed his "Theory of Personality," which he describes in the book "Emotions of Normal People" (1929). It describes the principles that underlie the foundations of the test psicométrico:
"Behavior is a function of the response person in their perception of the environment"

In other words, each of us will respond to each given situation according to how the perceive, understand or interpret.

For the development of the Theory of the Structure of Personality , described and developed in his book "Emotions of Normal People". Marston is based on several theories and concepts:
Self-Consistency Theory
Self-concept theory

among his inventions are DiSC Theory, Wonder Woman and the polygraph.

We know that "Perception" is a deep psychological process associated and mixed with our history, our personal experiences, our memories, our present situation that is associated with our "Self", or "Himself."

The way we receive, individualize and interpret the world around us.

Perception is shaped by:
Selective attention to stimuli
The organization of stimuli
The interpretation of the experiences in ways that make sense

The "perceptions" are not an objective reality, but people tend to create their own reality

Ideas about ourselves

He claims that human beings from birth and up to 16 to 18 years develops as a result of their experiences, a relatively specific and stable perception of his "self." Parallel to this, it also develops a certain "expectation" of what the environment requires of it.
On these bases, Marston believes that "individual behavior" is determined in part by the interaction between self-concept (the concept of "self") and permanent adjustments to the demands of their environment.
Then, the purpose of "Human Behavior" becomes protect, maintain and preserve the self-concept thus people will tend to behave consistently with what he believes to be.

test psicométrico are saying "tell us who you are" and predict "how you behave"

Theory of self-consistancy explained

People will accept and assimilate the ideas consistent with what they believe to be inconsistent with ideas and reject what they think:
"The mind is a unity, an organized system of ideas"
All ideas belong to the system must be consistent with each other

Language study and use of the words

BASE words or CORE: Marston studied the properties of about 3000 words and proposes a long list of words that refer to different behavior styles and trends, called words "base" and "core "

Through his studies Marston concludes that the interpretation that each person gives to each word is associated with as perceived. And as we saw each person perceives differently and according to their "self" (his self-concept).

This means that according to "Himself" (Behavioral Profile), each person would have positive or negative connotations, different in each case to every word perceived.

How was this tool developed?

So Marston developed a tool / methodology to understand and analyze the "SELF" Behavioral Profile "Natural profile" of people integrating perception, semantics, Self-concept, self-consistency.

Two identical lists of 86 words "base and core" to the person to complete independently and spontaneously, selecting or discarding each word in concordance with their own perception of each.

According to the words which were selected by the evaluation, the number of words chosen and the hundreds of millions of possible combinations leads to a "Behavioral Profile Chart" that can identify & describe and predict the person's Natural Style.
