Fit — Summary:

A “fit” candidate is one who scores relatively well on the personality test in regards to the target marks and meets the necessary skills and qualifications for the job. However, you’ll also find that there may be a few areas highlighted in the personality test that you’ll want to dig deeper into during the interview process so that you can figure out whether or not they will be able to compensate for those areas of weakness (i.e. what coping mechanisms they’ve developed).
