SHAH ALAM - Profiling system is an important documentation process which will provide an evidence list, thus the smart data obtained could be reused for the process of personal, group, organisation and community development.

This is the same with the implementation of the psychometric Rasuah Busters Tag (RBTag) test.

The evidence-based scientific data sets are used by experts for self-assessment as well as to assess the level of an individual’s tendency towards corruption and abuse of power.

Head of the psychometric RBTag project Prof Datuk Dr Mohd Tajudin Md Ninggal said through expertise possessed by his team, they managed to develop equipment and software for the evaluation process.

Tajudin who is also a counselling psychologist added that through scientific data and detailed studies conducted on the country’s socio-cultural state, a conclusion can be made regarding an individual’s level of integrity through the test which can assess 10 personality traits.

He said many developed countries such as Singapore used a similar study in evaluating an individual’s tendency level towards corruption and abuse of power.

“The RBTag psychometric test that we developed, aims at producing national and corporate leaders and government officials with high integrity.

“Besides being able to assess one’s integrity, the test can also be used as a process to discover one's true self and from that, they can try to improve to become a clean and trustworthy leader,” he told the Rasuah Busters crew on Thursday.

Commenting further, he said he felt that there was a need to offer his expertise to develop the psychometric RBTag test since many of the country’s leaders were alleged to have been involved in corruption and abuse of power, in the past few years.

He said corruption does not only exist among civil servants and enforcers, but also among the leaders in the country.

In this regard, he said he felt called to address the people’s concerns as they were getting sick of leaders who were involved in corruption and abuse of power, leading the country.

He said developing the psychometric test was a small contribution from him to fight corruption in the country.

“As a Malaysian citizen who loves the country, society must work towards improvement,” he said.
