Forma Mentis as an effective recruiting tool. Menkarelli Chiara, a business consultant (Italy, 2005) St. Petersburg State University

I set a goal to create a tool that could objectively and scientifically measure Forma Mentis, allowing accurate description of the candidate in the selection process. Thus there was created Forma Mentis test, based on the fundamental characteristics of competitiveness in the context of the work described by ontopsychological school. The aim of my research is to demonstrate that the developed test (in conjunction with semi-structured interviews) identifies candidates with the correct Forma Mentis, which determines his satisfaction and functionality for both himself and the company that hired him.
