OCEANS is a code name for the personality model we’ve been developing throughout the past few years. We combined brand new developments in personality psychology and evidenced personality theory to deliver a comprehensive personality model to you. OCEANS is a test battery that contains over 160 questions. It measures the following six core dimensions of personality:
The OCEANS personality model is based on science. To develop OCEANS and make it a viable assessment tool, we relied on research from the HEXACO and IPIP NEO models. Both of these models have well over 500 validation studies.
To assess the impact of age, gender, ethnicity, and culture on OCEANS assessment, we have tested the majority of OCEANS test items across the globe. We had subjects from various cultures, nations, and languages. The results show that none of the factors have a statistically significant impact on assessment.
To completely avoid bias and make OCEANS an unparalleled assessment tool, we decided to use the wide research pool. If you want a tool able to gauge a personality in the workplace with no bias, you should definitely consider Mentis OCEANS.
