The Le Corff Personality Inventory is a Canadian personality assessment tool. It was designed to measure personality traits according to the theory of the five factors (“Big Five”).
This theory, rigorously validated and the subject of a broad consensus in the circles of research in psychology, highlights the existence of five dimensions summarizing in an exhaustive way the personality. These five personality traits reflect a person's relational, emotional, cognitive, motivational, experiential and attitudinal style.

IPLC uses an algorithm to predict an individual's compatibility.
This personality algorithm has been designed to provide the professional with a detailed analysis of an individual's personality and a measure of the adequacy of the results obtained by this candidate to the desired personality profile.
The IPLC offers a second level of analysis by subdividing each of the five traits into two more specific facets that allow a finer analysis of the personality.
A competency model provides a clear view of the link between one's personality traits and the model of the eight major competencies sought.

They have a low propensity for anxiety, depression and anger. They have a good ability to receive criticism and aggression, as well as to remain calm in stressful situations.
There is a wide variety of theories in psychology to conceptualize personality. Among these, it is the trait theory that has been the subject of the main advances of the last two decades.
According to this conceptualization, personality is made up of traits, universal in humans, which vary according to individuals. Thus, all are endowed with the same bipolar traits, but these differ quantitatively in each individual. For example, everyone has some level of extroversion, whether high or low (introversion), but it is impossible not to be able to qualify a person according to this characteristic. The traits translate the cognitive, emotional, relational, experiential, motivational and attitudinal styles, relatively stable over time and across situations, which characterize individuals.
The IPLC was built on this foundation and presents a valid and faithful measurement of these characteristics.
