Neuroscientific games to actually get to know your candidates

Traditional assessments are broken. Here’s why.

Reshaping hiring practices through neuroscientific games.

Resume-based hiring has proven to be a broken selection method, simply because human behaviours aren’t capturable in just a piece of paper. Assessments, in contrast to resumes, have proven to provide companies with highly insightful data to predict a candidate’s fit with both the role, as well as culture. However, not all of them.

Traditional assessments, like personality questionnaires, not only cause exhaustion and frustration, but can moreover be easily faked. This heavily impacts your hiring accuracy.  Equalture’s neuroscientific games, measuring cognitive skills and personality traits, and based on decades of neuroscience and independently validated by the University of Twente, are reshaping the assessment landscape by focusing on a person’s behaviour during the assessment, rather than their result only. 

3 reasons why our neuroscientific games outperform traditional assessments

Social desirability

Gamified assessments are tailored to each individual by letting artificial intelligence calculate the person’s abilities and behaviour. Based on this calculation, the game solely presents items that are fitting to the person’s abilities and thus makes the assessment and its results more difficult to falsify. Furthermore, gamified assessments inhibit people from decoding and identifying favourable results.


Gamified assessments create an environment and atmosphere that directs a person’s attention away from the feeling of being assessed, thus reducing anxiety and contributing to more unconscious behaviours.


Gamified assessments are more attractive to candidates and consequently more enjoyable to take part in.
