Why You Should Upgrade Your Core Values Index Psychometric Assessment

We recently conducted a customer survey where we asked those who have taken the free Core Values Index psychometric assessment why they haven't yet upgraded to the full edition. Two of the possible responses indicated we need to do a better job letting our customers know there is an upgrade available and informing them of why an upgrade is beneficial.

Free vs. Full Edition

Many of those who took the free CVI found us through search engine results, often when searching for phrases like 'free personality test.'

The free version of the Core Values Index is the same assessment as the full version. The difference is the amount of information you receive in your report once your assessment is completed.

After completing the free CVI, you see what your primary and secondary core values are (e.g., "Builder/Merchant", "Innovator/Banker", etc.) and you see a few brief paragraphs that describe what these profiles mean. You don't see any scores, and the more detailed parts of your CVI report are heavily redacted. You also don't see your quadrant graph showing the relative proportions between your four core values.

For those who have already taken the free CVI, you don't need to take the assessment again to access the full edition. Just upgrade your account and your full results will become visible.

If you are interested in the CVI but aren't ready to commit to purchasing the full edition yet, take the free CVI at erep.com/c/, read your free report, and if you want to upgrade your results later, you can do so at any time.

Why upgrade?

The value of the full edition Core Values Index psychometric assessment report far exceeds its cost, and it provides many benefits over the free edition.
