Yes, the assessment was developed by Red Bull and expert psychology professors from University College London and Columbia University New York. The Wingfinder model is based on 30 years of psychological research, carried out across thousands of scientific studies. Data was analyzed to find the personality factors that most influence employability (the ability to gain and retain employment) and success (income, promotions, responsibilities, total time employed, performance ratings, etc.) in knowledge-based roles.
There are ongoing validations to make sure the test stays accurate and reliable. This gives the opportunity to continually enhance Wingfinder to be a valuable tool for people both applying for roles and seeking development feedback. Peer reviewed research has been published on Wingfinder in scientific journals and it’s been recognized by leading psychologists as one of the most thorough and valid assessments available to the public.
