Timeline of Psychological Assessment
The Psychology behind Woofound’s system recognizes that unique personality traits, preferences, feelings and desires distinguish an individual’s temperament and behavior. Our team of psychologists has designed Woofound’s matching engine around the concept that people derive fulfillment in their lives when their personal strengths and interests are compatible in their work, play and relationships. Woofound’s team seeks to discover conscious and unconscious aspects of personality, attachment and social style as well as experience preferences through an individual’s sensory associations to images.
We have taken the best of established vocational and personality research and theory and combined modern psychodynamic and ego psychological theories to create a sound scaffolding from which to best understand the complexity and uniqueness of each individual’s personality and preferences. Add in modern technology and...welcome to Woofound!

Reliability & Validation
Reliability and validation are completed by examining the rate at which a test gives the same result (reliability) and the amount to which the test gives the intended result (validity). Compass was validated with Cronbach's Alpha by showing that in over 1800 cases, the test was 92% reliable. Scientific method expects a minimum of 70 percent to be considered reliable, but Woofound sought higher reliability levels. By evaluating the results of all Compass users with a Pearson test showing “statistical significance”, meaning a distinct and recognizable trend, to give accurate results in 98.5% of cases. Finally, the test was shown to be fully balanced by showing that scores maintained both reliability and validity across gender, age, and ethnic boundaries.
