The question is often asked as to why an i3 profile test is different to that of standard psychometric tests.
First and foremost, the i3 instrument produces a unique result for each person being tested. This highly individual focus makes it almost impossible to compare, and puts it in the highest category of test instruments, because such an individual test is likely to produce far more pertinent information than a generic one.
The test is revolutionary and was developed independently from, and outside of the normal psychological arena. This too makes it far harder to assess within the context of traditional tests, whose effectiveness is based on test data within a formal framework of shared psychological data.
Significantly, some of the world’s most famous tests have emerged in a similar way to i3. The now famous Myers-Briggs personality test for instance, was initially developed in an informal environment by Myers and Briggs, neither of whom was formally educated in psychology, yet became world leaders in the field with their new instrument. As the test became increasingly recognised, it grew to be the universal standard for personality measurement.
As the i3 Profile is used to provide insight and self-realisation – rather than being merely a restricted measure for psychological, legal or academic purposes – it is free of the often daunting structures of academic standardisation and evaluation.
This indeed, may be an asset as this has enabled it to be significantly broader in scope than many of its counterparts. It is able to provide a wide range of personal data with a single instrument, in a single evaluation, rather than having to employ the traditional battery of test instruments.
