The Welfare Trait test is an index and instrument for measuring employability and resistance to employment in two dimensions. The Welfare Trait test does not address all possible reasons for employment or unemployment and does not purport to accommodate respondents who fall significantly outside the spectrum of normality.

Although all are designed to measure the welfare trait and employability in two dimensions, the IDR-WTT© should not be confused with instruments authored by Adam Perkins or alternative research organizations. However, all are professionally-designed personality tests (or inventories) meant for welfare trait and employability in the Western world. The IDR-WTT© is the property of IDR Labs International. The original research was provided by Adam Perkins, who is affiliated with King’s College, London.
