The Inside of Personality

If you would like immediate access to this assessment, please call us at 202-237-7179

The Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) describes personality from the inside – the core goals, values, drivers, and interests that determine what we desire and strive to attain. By assessing values, you can understand what motivates candidates to succeed, and in what type of position, job, and environment they will be the most productive.


The MVPI measures values along 10 primary scales. High scorers are described as:

  • Recognition: responsive to attention, approval, and praise
  • Power: desiring success, accomplishment, status, and control
  • Hedonism: orientated for fun, pleasure, and enjoyment
  • Altruistic: wanting to help others and contribute to society
  • Affiliation: enjoying and seeking out social interaction
  • Tradition: dedicated to strong personal beliefs
  • Security: needing predictability, structure, and order
  • Commerce: interested in money, profits, investment, and business opportunities
  • Aesthetics: needing self-expression, concerned over look, feel, and design of work products
  • Science: wanting knowledge, research, technology, and data

The MVPI measures five item themes that predict culture fit in an organization.

  • Lifestyles: concern the manner in which a person would like to live
  • Beliefs: involve “shoulds,” ideals, and ultimate life goals
  • Occupational Preferences: include an individual’s preferred work, and what constitutes a good job
  • Aversions: reflect attitudes and behavior that are disliked or distressing
  • Preferred Associates: concern the kind of person desired as coworkers and friends
