The Birkman Method® measures and reports behavioral data differently from most other assessments. Most assessments work hard to eliminate social desirability (the tendency to strive for creating a good impression) from participant responses. The Birkman Method® uses a participant’s understanding of social desirability along with motivational desires, to measure and report the way that person interacts in everyday life situations where people actually do color their behavior according to their understanding of social desirability.
Descriptive And Prescriptive – The Birkman Method® offers both descriptive and prescriptive information for the individual. Many instruments provide effective descriptions of certain personal mo- tivations and behaviors. The Birkman Method®, unlike most other assessment approaches, describes desires, strengths, motivational needs and stress reactions for the individual and provides basic recommendations for developing skills when faced with varying environments and people. This helps individuals manage life and work situations in ways that fulfill their motivational needs, and govern frustration where stress can cause reactions that so often damage relationships and occupational effectiveness. All of this is provided in a single integrated assessment and reporting system.
