What Our Clients Are Saying
The Science Behind Our Sales Personality Test
What is Drive? Drive is the collection of three core personality traits that successful salespeople share: Need for Achievement, Competitiveness and Optimism. Studies show high-performing salespeople are high in Drive but the critical issue most people miss: Drive cannot be taught.
So you must determine which of the candidates who have applied for your open position are high in Drive, or everything else that follows…interviewing, hiring and training…are time and money wasted.
Non-Teachable Traits Assessed:
- Need for Achievement
Teachable Skills Assessed:
- Relationship Skills

The DriveTest® Difference
Most personality tests are broadly developed for general usage, and then interpreted for salespeople. The DriveTest® has been developed for salespeople only.
Most salesperson assessment tests measure teachable skills, but teachable skills are moot without the non-teachable personality trait, Drive, to use them. We measure both, but start with the non-teachable aptitude including: Need for Achievement, Competitiveness and Optimism.
Sales personality tests are great, but when combined with a related behavioral interview they are even better. The DriveTest® and The Drive Interview® deliver both. This combination is critical to your hiring success.
