Abstract

Personality assessment tools are used effectively in many arenas of business, but they have not been embraced by the medical profession. There is increasing evidence that these tools have promise for helping to match resident candidates to specific fields of medicine, for mentoring residents, and for developing improved leadership in our field. This paper reviews many aspects of personality assessment tools and their use in orthopaedic surgery.
