Personality Tests

Employment discrimination is a concern for ASD adults. A new item from the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network:

The Autistic Self Advocacy Network is investigating employers' use of personality tests to screen job applicants as part of applications for employment and the broader hiring process. These tests may unfairly screen out qualified Autistic applicants and those with other hidden disabilities through the use of subjective questions unrelated to job performance

If you live in the United States and have recently been turned down for a job that used personality tests as part of the application process, please contact Samantha Crane at and Melody Latimer at Please include the name of the employer, the approximate date on which you applied for the job and any additional information you feel may be relevant.

Thank you,
The Autistic Self Advocacy Network
