The science behind
By creating one interview framework out of several approaches, Tengai got a better way to assess candidates’ future work performance and a higher predictive validity. The AI is focused on collecting information about personality and competencies. So recruiters can spend more time finding information about the candidates' experiences and drive.
Below we explain how the final scoring, the Potential Index, is based on scores generated based on both personality and behavior.
Automatic personality score
A predictive scoring that is delivered automatically by Tengai and reflects the candidates' personality and level of:
- Social confidence
- Goal orientation
- Activity level
- Task confidence
Manual behavior score
A descriptive scoring based on questions about past behavior. In this part of the assessment, recruiters can manually score soft skills and listen to interview audio where the candidate answers questions about:
- Stress tolerance
The final score is a combination of personality and behavior scores and reflects the candidates' general work performance based on a 1 to 5 scale.
A shortlist with the highest-scoring candidates is always available for the recruiter to see. Each assessment is also sent directly to the candidates, to ensure that they agree with the way Tengai has interpreted their potential.

When AI is used in the right way, it can complement our everyday work. But it can never substitute humans. Tengai exhibits both complex and autonomous behaviors. To ensure accurate candidate recommendations, psychometric experts tested our framework and validated that Tengai independently can screen and recommend job-seekers, without any human interference.
"The validation study implies that Tengai accurately can assess personality traits correlated with work performance and be used to achieve a more unbiased recruitment process!"

The assessment scale
We refer to the model Big Five as it continues to be one of the most accepted personality theories. Unlike other trait theories, that sort individuals into binary categories, the Big Five model asserts that each personality trait represents a continuum. Therefore, Tengai always assesses candidates on a spectrum which contributes to a more complex final score.
Frequently Asked Questions
