Personality assessment is a complex process and there is an ongoing need for studies and for an improvement in the selection methods employed. Most assessment processes and methods focus on simply describing the personality, but at least on the leadership level, the need is to understand and explain behavior. Therefore this study suggests that the Rorschach Comprehensive System (RCS) will predict the leader’s performance more accurately than when performance is predicted only with self-reported personality methods. Furthermore, this study suggests that the RCS variables moderate the relationship between the preferred personality and the actual personality congruence or job–person (JP) fit and the leader’s performance, when the JP fit personality is measured by the self-reported assessment tool. Pearson correlations and stepwise hierarchical multiple regression analyses (n=203) confirmed several hypotheses and the results support the view that performance-based assessment method explains the personality more than the self-assessment based personality dimensions and should therefore be part of the personnel assessment process.
