The Pilot Judgment® Assessment

It’s all about judgment!

Pilot Judgment is all about the measurement and improvement of judgment—judgment which can produce not simply incremental improvements, but quantum leaps. Certainly continue your professional training, but multiply your training efforts with the power of good judgment.

In other words, improvements in judgment can dramatically increase all of the other investments you make in your personal development.

The Pilot Judgment assessment is predictive and consistent.

But it isn’t a test. It’s an evaluation. There is no “pass” or “fail.”

You won’t feel intruded upon, judged or for that matter, tested, as you so often do with more standard assessment methodologies. The Pilot Judgment assessment isn’t laborious or intimidating. Most people complete in less than thirty minutes.

What we're NOT

Not an IQ Test

The Pilot Judgment® assessment is not an IQ test.

Rational intelligence alone, or IQ, is not a valid predictor of performance or success. Some people are “book smart” yet lacking in common sense.

Certainly it can be advantageous to be intellectual and many highly intelligent people are successful, but many are not.

The Pilot Judgment assessment distinguishes itself by assessing common sense, wisdom and judgment, not IQ.

Not a Psychological Test

The Pilot Judgment® assessment is not a psychological test or an emotional balance profile.

It was not designed, nor intended to measure or seek out the presence of psychological dysfunction. Indeed, the Pilot Judgment assessment arises from the field of philosophy, not psychology.

However, it is excellent at measuring the influence of four different categories of stress on judgment.

Most individuals suffering from a social or emotional breakdown do so because of the presence of overwhelming stress and an inability to cope. The solution for them is to get their stress under control, learning to cope.

Fortuitously, in the area of stress, the Pilot Judgment assessment reveals key information and metrics about the influence of four different categories of stress on judgment, and an ability to cope with adversity.

Additionally, if coping skills are lacking, my program offers guidance for improvement.

Not a Personality Profile

The Pilot Judgment® assessment is not a personality profile.

The overwhelming majority of personal assessments are personality profiles. These types of assessments usually suggest that certain personality types will result in certain kinds of competency (or lack thereof).

Actually, people are able to overcome very real, supposedly negative, personality traits and characteristics, and perform their work in an excellent fashion and achieve high levels of success.

Personality profiles are simply not a compelling predictor of performance, success, or compatibility, whereas judgment is.

What we ARE

The Pilot Judgment Assessment is...

The Pilot Judgment assessment is the objective, accurate, measurement of the all-important, all-critical dimension of judgment, the same judgment that provides your unique value perspectives on life and work.

Our assessment has been completed by hundreds of thousands of people, including more than one hundred best/worst performer studies, over ten years and across a wide range of corporations, jobs and work environments.

Our work has enriched individuals working in such industries as healthcare, retail, construction, legal, banking, education, criminal, military, technology, athletics, aviation and many more.

No other assessment measures what we measure, judgment.

Completing the Pilot Judgment Assessment:

To complete the Pilot Judgment assessment, you will place in order a variety of phrases, from what you consider the best phrase, to what you consider the worst.

Each phrase contains a particular value, or combination of values.  As seen through the lens of your unique judgment, each phrase will inspire within you a particular reaction or feeling. Your reactions will likely have varying degrees of intensity, from very positive, to very negative, to somewhat indifferent.

This is exactly what is intended: a hierarchy of phrases based on your unique judgment.  Your judgment determines which phrases you consider best, worst, and those in-between. Your scores are then calculated based on the order in which you place the phrases.

The Pilot Judgment assessment does not require any preparation, or study, or additional materials. You are not asked to reveal any personal or private information.

Find a relatively quiet undisturbed location in order to avoid distractions. Complete the assessment entirely by yourself.  Do not ask advice.  Do not have someone leaning over your shoulder watching.  Do not let anyone make suggestions.  Do not let anyone provide guidance or assistance.

Simply put, the assessment must be entirely yours, and completed only by you, in order for your results to be accurate.

Most people complete the assessment in less than thirty minutes. However, there is no time limit, and the amount of time you take to complete the assessment does not affect your scores.
