Abstract -

The Traitfit Team with the help of the Personality Assessments and psychologically interviewing the potential candidates, for the SBI YFI team, was successfully able to identify high potential candidates for the fellowship program. 1000 interviews were conducted virtually with the help of online platforms while the assessments were of the digital nature. The carefully and meticulously organised interview process took place over a period of 2 months during which the individuals’ social behaviour traits, motivations, strengths and weaknesses, and attitudes were measured. 

Let us make this more believable and real for you.


The Youth for India Fellowship program works for the rural development of India. It gives the fellows a hands-on experience of the ground realities of rural India and helps these young minds transform into their aspired versions. The grass root level problems and struggles of these rural communities can be understood,  heard, and acted upon only after staying there for a period of 13 months. During this time, these selected fellows devise a project by doing a needs analysis and survey of the community. Accordingly, they have to plan a project which falls under one of these broad categories:-
  1. Education
  2. Health
  3. Environmental Protection
  4. Food Security
  5. Rural Livelihood
  6. Traditional Crafts
  7. Women Empowerment
  8. Self Governance
  9.  Social Entrepreneurship
  10. Water
  11. Technology
  12. Alternate Energy
  Once this plan is made, with the help of the partner NGO in that particular area, the project is implemented. With regular guidance and support from the NGO, the project is worked upon for its sustainability.

Challenges -

SBI was facing problems with assessing the fellows based on their mental preparedness and emotional stability. As in the past years of this program they have had fellows who went through mental trauma and depression by being a part of this program. So, to make sure the program is smooth for the company and the fellows , this year they wanted help with identifying candidates who were psychologically stable.

Solutions -

Once the candidates reached the interview stage they were given the Personality Assessments.  The SBI Youth For India team was facilitated with 1000 personality assessments for prospective candidates by Traitfit, so as to gain a better understanding of their mental and emotional health. Along with assessments Traitfit also provided a value added service. The entire tenure for this project was 4 months i.e. April-July 2021.

Benefits of the Test

– These tests reveal information about individuals’ social behaviour traits, motivations, strengths and weaknesses, and attitudes.
-They even help identify high potential candidates.

Value Added Service

While collaborating with SBI, Traitfit even provided them with a psychological analysis of each candidate by being a part of the interview process. The Traitfit team was fully equipped with sufficient and precise analysis which came with these personality assessments. The panelists consisted of alumnus, directors, founders and a psychologist. The personality assessment guided the interview process as traits like –

  • Integrity
  • Grit
  • Thinking Styles
  • Conflict Resolution Styles
  • Empathy
  • Accountability
  • Perseverance
  • Innovative Thinking
  • Agreeableness
  • Analytic Reasoning
  • Problem Solving
  • Conscientiousness
  • Effective Communication
  • Adaptability

and Value Orientation were measured.

Impact -

Our team was able to successfully aid this process and select 150 candidates who were fit for this fellowship program. The Traitfit Team along with the SBI YFI team were able to study, analyse, observe and come to a systematic conclusion about the holistic profile of each candidate. This helped them select better candidates who were emotionally stable and had the right qualities which were required for the rigorous training given to them . Furthermore these qualities are required for the kind of mental preparedness which will be essential for their stay ahead in the rural sector.
