EASI is a typology test that measures psychological traits. The test has been developed for personality testing for learning and development purposes. After completing your final exam, you will receive an official EASI Test User Certificate, a downloadable diploma and a SoMe award.

The typology test EASI makes it easy to understand what drives people and creates balanced, well-functioning and high-performing teams and nurture leadership 

Personality testing with EASI provides line managers and HR professionals with knowledge about what psychological traits make their employees and teams tick. Knowledge about what drives people can help leverage the power of diversity. With EASI:

  • you can identify personality and drivers of existing employees and teams
  • you get a common framework for effective communication about people-related issues
  • you can assess, tune and build winning teams and internal effectiveness
  • you can create and manage dynamic teams based on personality facts rather than hunches
  • you can turn human idiosyncrasies into beneficial dynamics and commercial success


EASI is a typology test based on four of the factors from the Five-Factor Model of personality, which are split into two orientation axes: Person vs. Task; Control vs. Participation. EASI classifies people into four basic types based on their test results:

  • Enthusiast
  • Analyst
  • Supporter
  • Implementer

It is often used to develop individuals and groups by helping them to improve their communication. It is a hands-on-tool to meet day-to-day relationship-based challenges.

EASI consists of two parts: Behaviour and Motivation - that can be used together or separately dependent on the purpose of the testing.
