Marine Profile Assessment System

Marine Profile Assessment System consists of four different psychological tests: the Masterline Marine, MasterMap Personality Inventory, the Stress Coping Test and MasterMatrix. Contact us for more information.

Masterline Marine is based on Lazarus theory of perception, and sheds light on how a person processes and makes sense of new information. With this understanding of a person, one can predict certain behaviours as well as identify personal development and growth areas. This tool is especially useful to target senior level management where in-depth knowledge of an employee can be invaluable. Use it in combination with MasterMatrix or/and Stress Coping Test.

MasterMap Personality Inventory is based on the Big Five theory of personality which describes a person from five distinct domains. This tool includes the following domains: Sociability, Service, Conscientiousness, Energy and Stability. It also describes what kind of work-style and approach can be expected. It is designed for screening where comparison between candidates is necessary. The target should be “ratings” and up to senior positions, deck/engine as well as service-entry-level positions. Use it in combination with MasterMatrix or/and Stress Coping Test.

The Stress Coping Test measures the capacity to resist and cope with stress. It is developed to identify emotionally instable individuals and predict job success in occupations associated with high levels of stress. The target should be positions on all levels that require a certain amount of stress resistance. All results are carefully reviewed by a maritime psychologist before being returned to the client.

MasterMatrix is a capacity test which measures general intelligence (g-factor). This is an aspect which has a very strong connection with job performance in general. It is non-verbal and uses figures to determine logical reasoning, spatial ability and general problem-solving capability. The target should be all positions on all levels. Recommended to be used in combination with a personality tool.
