WATCHMEN Profile Inventory (WPI)
Which WATCHMEN Superhero Are You?
The Watchmen Profile Inventory (WPI) is a personality test that has been adopted by law enforcement recruiters and trainers in Elgin, Illinois, after extensive research and testing at the University of Chicago. It is considered to be the most accurate measure of the integrity, psychological stability, and character strength of future police officers. The WPI provides indicators of an individual's ability to cope with the complexities and risks of everyday law enforcement. The general consensus among psychologists is that personality profiling--as tested on the WPI--is the most reliable predictor of an individual's professional performance.
Although the issue of any kind of "profilng" is highly controversial, other local, state, and federal agencies are closely observing the testing and results of Elgin's WPI profiling as a possible tool in assessing their candidates in light of increasing domestic and international threats the United States now faces.
The WPI itself consists of 25 questions that the participant is allowed 2 minutes to complete. While the WPI is not a pass/fail assessment, the numerical scoring is a direct correlate to key character traits for those facing the hazards and pressure situations involved in police activities.
