For a project, I need the help of a psychometrics expert with a statistical and research background to help me develop a simple and intuitive personality evaluation framework that could potentially match employees with employers. The initial concept, in a nutshell, is that job seekers would fill out 5-8 questions on a slider scale covering 3 macro factors based on experience with an employer - management's style, peer culture, and organizational vision/direction. Based on the employees rating, an algorithm would then aggregate scores and select 1 out of 7-8 pre-set personality archetypes as the closest representative. The personality archetypes could perhaps be a contemporary/fun version of the Jungian archetypes, think likeness of Gandhi, Steve Jobs, Donald Trump, etc. The 2nd part of the framework then asks the employee to answer 5-7 intuitive/fun questions (along the lines of a Myers-Briggs) which can then be used to estimate their own personality type. As a last step, the framework then helps develop a %fit between the user's personality and current and potential employers.
As you can tell, the concept still isn't completely clear in my own mind - that's where you, a psychometrics and research expert steps in :)
I envision the engagement being part consultative, part brainstorming, and part methodology development. I am open to ideas/suggestion to evolve what I have in mind - the only constraint being that the end-result needs to be simple and intuitive and not require a whole lot of effort to fill out.
I am also not sure how much time one would need to complete a project such as this, which is why I am leaving the work arrangement somewhat open ended. I am flexible with pricing if your recommended approach is compelling. I'd love to see a compelling Point of view and a recommended approach to both project scope and approximate time required. In the proposal, I'd be looking for someone who has a grasp of psychology, educational/HR measurement, questionnaire development, and research. Would be ideal If you have done something like this before, and have a strong understanding of the behaviors, motivations, and needs of employees and employers in the western world. Extra points if you're someone who live in they Bay Area and do some in-person worksessions.
Please let me know if I can clarify anything or answer more questions. I really look forward to working with one of Freelancer's stellar experts!
