Emotional Intelligence Summit: The First in the Philippines – Sepetember 18, 2018
Deficiencies with Current Testing Instruments
Profiles noted when it was founded in 1991, that there were many deficiencies with the then available instruments, many of which are still in use today. Amongst these deficiencies were:
In short, they possibly did a fine job of clinical diagnosis (for which most were developed), but were not only unreliable, but also invalid and in some cases illegal, when applied to the workplace.
The Profiles’ Solution
To overcome these difficulties, PI slowly developed a completely new set of employee related assessment instruments, literally from the ground up, whilst making full use of prior research.
In 2014 PI was acquired by the John Wiley Group. Additional information on Profiles International may be found at: www.ProfilesInternational.com
is the Philippine affiliate of Profiles International and was launched in 1998. As exclusive distributor of PI products, Profiles Asia Pacific markets directly to client companies and has an established dealer network. PAP provides training and support to both dealers and end users alike. PAP’s office is located in the Ortigas Center area of Metro Manila.
Where appropriate, assessments are translated into Tagalog.
People Dynamics, Inc. was formed in 2002 to offer Philippine employers superior HR services based on the products of Profiles International (for psychometric assessments) and skills tests from other providers. This quickly developed into other related services, namely:
Since 2003, in order to accommodate the booming BPO industry and its need for low-cost but very high-volume pre-screening tools, People Dynamics has developed a range of locally normed specialist instruments to cover all basic pre-screening needs. These include: cognitive, personality, competency and skills, sales and service assessments.
This function has now evolved in to a department of full-time licensed test developers creating new and innovative testing instruments…. Such as:
…. and several more
In 2003, PAP took on a second affiliation that of computer-based “skills” oriented testing which nicely complemented the psychometric assessments of PI and the tools we had created ourselves (e.g. BMAA was the first and still the most used!). Literally hundreds of performance-based testing modules are available to our clients using the Internet for skills testing.

Emotional Intelligence – GENOS
It is now well established that EQ is as important IQ in achieving success in most jobs., and that in jobs involving supervision of others or involving teamwork and collaboration it is probably MORE important than IQ.
With this knowledge in 2016 Profiles took on a further representation that of GENOS Emotional Intelligence assessment and training.
Emotional Intelligence The GENOS Assessment
Our organization has never stopped researching and growing to fully serve the needs of a dynamic and ever-changing market landscape. Thus, in 2016 a new acquisition in the form of GENOS EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE assessments and intervention distributorship was acquired and the birth of GENOS CORE group (Center for Organizational Resources for Emotional Intelligence) was formed. Our goal is to serve as ambassadors of EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE as it is now known to impact in the stability, sustainability and strength in organizations as much as the touted IQ, when adopted by its’ leaders.
This is based on robust scientific research of how EI impacts productivity and high performance in the workplace. Emotional Intelligence has gained worldwide acceptance as an emerging competency that is quoted by the WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM as “to be needed by all” moving forward.
Herein lies the secret of the future of jobs. The digital economy makes it all too easy for us to acquire information at the click of our finger tips. However, EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE will become a highly valuable asset and trait that if not gained today will render a “human” job extinct in the near future.
The GENOS assessment serves our need for an assessment. It does not measure Emotional Intelligence per se, rather, it looks at behavioral traits attributed to six specific dimensions of Emotional Intelligence. It is significant in the sense that it leads people and organizations on a path towards doable action plans based on their results. Our interventions do not end with just the GENOS assessment. We have a plethora of programs to support individual and organizational action plans, to make sure that positive changes are imbibed by the individual, the leader, the team and the organization.
