FACE TO FACE MODULE Aptitude Pairings Program (A. P. P) What, Why, and How to apply it?
Aptitude Pairings Program is a Personality assessment process used to asses both Alpha Phi and the PNM For the Alpha Phi, the assessment will ask you 4 questions to gage which area you fall in more heavily. For the PNM, it will take into account the PNM information from the PNM profile and based on their involvement they will be assigned a personality type. WHAT IS IT?
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS? To give you more depth within your bump groups and allow for more accurate matching based upon member and Potential New Member (PNM) personality types.
HOW TO APPLY IT? Since the PNM doesn’t take the personality assessment we decide where she falls based on the information she gives us through her PNM profile that she fills out when registering for recruitment. Each category correlates with different activities that PNMs list on their profile.
The Four Types: Dominance: - Individual sports - Team sport captain - Pageants - Entrepreneurship - student government elected positions - Business Major Influence: - Sport teams - Art groups - Social media influencer - Brand ambassador - Art major Steadiness: - Volunteer work - Service - Awards - Scholarships - Church groups - Longevity - Literature, language, Social Science major Conscientiousness: - Camps - Honor societies - Academic clubs - Event planning - Environment, Science, & Math Major

A bump group is composed of members from your chapter. 3 or 4 members will be paired together and work together during the recruitment week. Bump groups are made based off a variety of criteria, including the data gained from A. P. P to be sure the group is compatible with each other. WHAT IS A BUMP GROUP?
BUMP GROUPS: If matched with people of the same type, odds are conversations will flow a lot more naturally and be more comfortable. Some of you will be matched with different types, so it is important you understand the best way to communicate with and the different behaviors of each type.
When you understand the PNMs DISC type you can further understand how they communicate, their behaviors, and questions they will respond well to. This will allow for you to have more comfortable conversations and better connections, leading to an overall better experience for you and the PNM during recruitment. HOW WILL I APPLY THIS WHEN TALKING WITH A PNM DURING RECRUITMENT?
THE OVERALL GOAL Our hope is that by you understanding your Aptitude Pairings Program type, and the type of the PNM you are matched with, our bump groups will be more compatible, conversations with PNMs will be more comfortable, and real connections will be able to be made during the recruitment process. In turn, adding additional value to recruitment.

Everyone is a blend of all four DISC styles— usually one, two, or even three styles stand out. UNDERSTANDING THE STYLES Each person has a unique behavioral profile with different styles and priorities—no one’s style is better or worse than the next. For our chapter’s purposes, we have used A.
