What is the science behind EASI?
EASI is a typology test based on the Five-Factor model of personality and includes content from four of the five factors: Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, and Agreeableness. EASI highlights the relationship between everyday Behavioural Style and Motivational Style, which provides a key to personal and team development.

EASI is suitable for use with employees at all levels across a range of applications:
- Team building.

EASI has several national standards as well as an international standard. The combined norm samples contain more than 20,000 responses.
When choosing a test tool, we recommend that you pay attention to its validity and reliability. Extensive documentation has been performed to provide evidence of reliability and validity.
- Criterion validity: resulting types are evaluated by test takers as relevant and valid: 94% rated the match between work behaviour and EASI as “very good”.
- Construct validity: mean item-total correlations within each scale are very high (r = 0.55). Factor Analysis of the model has shown good construct validity in relation to the Five Factor Model.
- Differential Item Functioning (DIF): DIF was rejected across gender, country, age, and educational level. This is strong evidence that EASI functions equally well when used on different groups.
