PULSIONS for achieving performance

PULSIONS is the tool for assessment and positive management. The PULSIONS test reveals what a person DOES, not who they ARE. As a cutting-edge and renowned analytical tool for 20 years, the PULSIONS test identifies HOW a person acts according to the contexts they navigate, highlighting the situations where they thrive or, conversely,

where they encounter obstacles. The PULSIONS questionnaire, composed of 280 items, reveals each individual’s potential. This tool is just as effective for recruitment and management purposes as it is for personal and professional coaching.

The Secrets Behind PULSIONS' Precision

The method highlights 4 types of contexts in which a person is likely to act. Each context is represented by a colour: blue, green, orange, and red. These colours do not in any way imply a value judgment: a "red" profile in certain contexts can prove to be highly effective!

Depending on the context, a person can:
Example : I'm looking for a successor...
Act based on their own thoughts/decisions

... and we are in a phase of reform, of transformation
Collaborate to meet needs

... and currently, everything is going well, we are well positioned to secure our future
Collaborate to solve problems

... and our company is facing problems to solve
Trigger or face a rupture

... and our company is in crisis and at risk of bankruptcy

The questionnaire also identifies 8 types of behaviour known as « pulsions » (impulses).

These are the levers activated by each person in a given context. They correspond to the achievement of an objective:


for Personal Performance: achieving fulfillment through one’s own performance

for Utility: carrying out concrete tasks for which one is responsible. Producing and delivering to serve one’s environment through expertise and know-how.

for Liberty: occupying one’s freedom space to derive pleasure from activities.

for Security: mastering the risks and parameters of one’s domain to evolve safely and securely.

for Interest: generating results for oneself and for those to whom one is accountable.

for Own Image: asserting authority in one’s field to enjoy a good reputation

for Novelty: generating new ideas, questioning, and changing what needs to be changed.

for Social: creating and managing quality human relationships to thrive in a positive relational climate.

How is the PULSIONS test more than just a personality test?

PULSIONS is unique in that it exclusively identifies the behaviours individuals actually exhibit in the course of their activities. Therefore, it’s not a personality test but rather a tool that predicts how someone will approach and fulfill tasks and responsibilities entrusted to them.

How can focusing exclusively on actions and not on personality be more effective?

Understanding how a person operates is crucial when entrusting them with tasks or responsibilities. Is their approach suitable for our environment, culture, current job context, and challenges at hand? The PULSIONS questionnaire serves as an excellent complement to various personality tests on the market because it goes beyond personality traits to reveal how individuals will concretely act in given situations.

Why is the PULSIONS tool a real asset within a company?

The PULSIONS questionnaire yields highly reliable results, enabling individuals to pragmatically assess their actions, identify effective and ineffective contexts and situations, and become aware of the dynamics their behaviors create within their sphere of activity. The technical manual can be obtained upon request from PULSIONS Management SA.
