Indian Knowledge Traditions (IKT) based model

Few countries possess a storied history of rich cultural, scientific and intellectual heritage as India does. At Swayam, our personality assessment tests and analysis draw on various facets of this heritage of knowledge to help make contemporary decisions through tangible data and accurate insights.

5 Element Theory

Indian knowledge systems are built on a foundation of 5 primordial elements – namely Ether (Akasa), Air (Vayu), Fire (Agni), Water (Ap) and Earth (Prithvi).  The inter-reaction of these elements with each other plays a key role in establishing the basis of every individual’s physical-psychological make-up, helping us read accurately into the psyche of the person.

Our tests are based on 2 primary facets of Indian philosophy: Tridoshas and Trigunas, both of which are composed of the Pancha Mahabhutas. The different combinations of the Tridoshas and Trigunas can best be understood from the following graphics:

Tridoshas

Trigunas

3 basic Nature categories: The Tridoshas

The 5-elements combine with each other to form different physical-physiological natures. There are 10 such permutations & combinations based on the 3 basic Nature categories.

189 Traits

There are 189 traits that every test taker is assessed on at Swayam. There are 100 Sattvic, 60 Rajasic and 29 Tamasic traits that cover the range of human behaviour, providing in-depth analysis of behaviour.

3 basic Attribute categories: The Trigunas

The 5-elements combine with each other to form different psychological Attributes. There are 10 such permutations & combinations based on the 3 basic Attribute categories.

16 Classical Personality Types

Classical texts describe a taxonomy of personalities whom we resemble. There are 7 Sattvic types, 6 Rajasic and 3 Tamasic types. All of us have permutations and combinations of these 16 CPT’s that makes us unique. 

Based on these 3/10 Natures, 3/10 Attributes, and 16 Classical Personality Types there are millions of permutations and combinations ensuring that no two persons are like each other.

Triangulation Method

There are several personality assessment tests that measure the physical, psychological and ethical aspects of personality and behaviour individually. These, however, do little to provide accurate insights. At Swayam, our tests uniquely combine the 3 to generate holistic data that empirically breaks down different facets of one’s personality, aiding in making sound and informed decisions.

Holistic, Comprehensive and Accurate Assessments

At Swayam, we focus on the two aspects of life that require adequate consideration and insight to make an informed decision – career choices for students and recruitment choices for HR’s. For corporates we offer hiring and recruitment solutions to enable them to find individuals who will excel in what they do as well as be contributors to the organizational growth and values. For students, we help them make career choices which are best suited to their personalities.
