HOW POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY IS INTEGRATED THROUGHOUT THE BIRKMAN METHOD
A core differentiator of The Birkman Method is that it not only taps into how someone is likely to behave but also why.
The Birkman Method reports on both behavioral and occupational data. It then leverages a unique methodology for assessing personality through positive psychology. The goal of positive psychology is to help people live and flourish rather than merely exist, and is a “view within scientific psychology that aims to achieve a balanced and empirically grounded body of research on human nature and social relations” (Keyes & Haidt, 2003, p. 3).
In 1951, Roger Birkman started down a proactive, positive path with the development of his assessment, The Birkman Method, as a true humanistic psychological assessment. Continuing Roger’s legacy, the team at Birkman International have continued down this same path in their products, research, and development.
