        The science of psychological testing has evolved significantly since the early 20th century. The journey began in 1908 with the Binet-Simon Scale, the first successful intelligence test, which later evolved into the Stanford-Binet test used by the U.S. military during World War I. This era also saw the creation of the Woodworth Personal Data Sheet (WPDS), marking a shift from intellectual to personality assessments.

By the 1940s, personality trait measurement became central to psychology, leading to the development of popular tests like Myers-Briggs, DISC, and Cattell's 16PF Questionnaire. Despite widespread use, these tests focused primarily on quantifying individual personality factors.

Developed by a team of behavioral scientists with a deep curiosity about the dynamics of teamwork and an interest in applying physical science concepts to measure human interaction. They spent the next 25 years developing, testing, and validating the critical metrics of teamwork and collaboration in the field.

        Role-Based Assessment (RBA) diverges from traditional personality tests by focusing on qualitative observations of human interaction rather than quantifying personality traits.

It measures the foundational elements of 'collaboration' and teamwork behavior to improve individual and team performance. Their work blends decades of research in family and social relationships.

It has proven its value in understanding and enhancing organizational performance throughout three generations of development, testing, and application in business contexts.
