Unlike personality tests, which tell you what's wrong with you and how to change it, Kolbe tells you what's right with you and how to make the most of it. Backed by 35 years of scientific research and validation, Kolbe Indexes are fun and easy to complete online in less than 20 minutes. The Kolbe Conative Index® quantifies talents and strengths describing how people uniquely contribute to the accomplishment of a task—how they will provide results that fit their hardwired design. The Kolbe Index is so objective and accurate that it meets US Government standards (EEOC) for hiring or re-assignment processes. It removes guesswork from how people will perform. Skills can be taught, personalities can change, but the instinctive way to succeed is hardwired into each of us.

How are Kolbe Indexes Different from Other Assessments?

Ancient philosophers and modern psychologists share the concept of a three-part mind with separate domains for thinking, feeling, and doing. The conative, or doing, part contains the striving instincts that drive a person's natural way of taking action, or modus operandi (M.O.). This is the unique set of innate strengths and talents every person has which remains unchanged from birth. Everyone has an equal amount of conative energy for engaging the thinking (cognitive) and feeling (affective) parts of the mind to produce purposeful action. Mental assessments look at different parts of the human mind.

The Kolbe A™ Index is different because it is the only validated assessment of the conative part of the mind.
