Personality Testing Hullabaloo

Tangentially related to my recent post on workplace personality testing, we have this story out of New Zealand. What in the world is the ministry doing? Parties vs. reading books vs. the opera? Maybe this is a joke, or a Kiwi fake-news site like The Onion.     

Assuming this is real, this falls rather short of personality testing best practices. I think I can safely speak for all human resources professionals on that front.

Can anyone share further details? I'd love to know the full story.
