This secret weapon proved itself during World War II. Today, it's helping organizations win the War for Talent.
When the CIA needed to identify soldiers fit for espionage assignments and senior military posts during World War II, they built Station S, a comprehensive two-day simulation program. Cadets performed tasks, such as a mock enemy interrogation, while psychologists observed their stress tolerance and resilience. This secret weapon proved painstakingly accurate—people reveal their true colors when observed in challenging situations.
Pinsight is built on the same proven principles, but not under the stress of harsh interrogations. Our computer simulation is designed with the challenges of fictitious company candidates must negotiate. During the simulation, certified assessors add additional challenges as they observe performance and potential. Then, our proprietary algorithms determine who is ready to drive your strategy. Our virtual solution reveals more insights during a three-hour simulation than Station-S psychologists ever could!Schedule Live Demo

This creative approach to leadership development will save time and money. Pinsight® are experts in the Industrial/Organizational Psychology field and you'll find an exceptional partnership.
I found the Pinsight® simulation assessment provided a realistic experience with accurate and insightful results. It could be an invaluable tool for assessing competencies and implementing leadership and high potential development. With a reasonable cost and the ability to target your subsequent training efforts I would predict a good return on your investment.
Right from the start, I was blown away by the Pinsight® simulation assessment. It was easy to use, both as a user, and as a coach. I have been in Employee Development for over 6 years now, and have not seen a product quite like this one. The feedback you receive as a user is so valuable, because it’s specific to YOU. And more importantly, the simulation assessment goes the extra mile. It answers the ‘So what?’ question by providing a development strategy that helps with any areas for improvement. Fantastic product!
I have had the pleasure of working with the Pinsight team for a couple of years and have found them to be very prompt, professional and extremely focused. Their knowledge and dedication becomes obvious from your very first interaction with them. The assessment has become a critical part of our selection process and we are starting to utilize them in as part of our internal development process. I couldn’t ask for a better business partner.
We have used Pinsight in the selection of a Managing Director Designate recently. We started with 314 candidates and used Pinsight for the last 3. To say I was impressed would be an understatement. The nuances and information provided by this 3 hour computer simulation were most impressive and very insightful. I also liked the fact that the candidates have access for 12 months so that even if unsuccessful with us, they could use the information in their career development.
I was very surprised to see that this test (Pinsight simulation) could give me in 3 hours for 80 percent the same results I got recently from a very intense assessment center which was spread over several days and where I was being followed by an entire team of observers.
First: Thank you for this. It was a blast. It was very eye opening to where I can improve upon in my "Actual" work life. I will also say, the actors were great to interact with. It really does give it a vibe unlike normal simulations.
All in all though I thought it was a very well done experience and I hope that I performed well in it.
Dear all, visiting a vacation resort will never be the same! I had a lot of fun in going through this simulation and I’m now curious about the report.
Although some of the feedback that I received yesterday from the simulation was a little hard to swallow, it hasn’t even been 24 hours and I have find myself already using the feedback to change the way I handle things and do business with colleagues. It happened two times yesterday and already three times today! I am very excited and confident that this will truly be an empowering and transformative experience for me. Thanks for pushing my thinking!
The executive simulation exercise and feedback session gave me some unexpected valuable self-insight, and highlighted paths for growth.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Pinsight assessment. It was intimidating when I first studied the material. However, with preparation, and focus, I was able to maximize my experience. It was enjoyable to "role play" leadership in a non-threatening environment. Once accomplished, it certainly helped build my confidence. Marta was my evaluator/coach for the Pinsight experience. I really enjoyed our conversation. She was a wonderful listener, and had very insightful information for me to help improve as a leader. I actually learned, from her, how powerful "listening" can be as a tool. She also helped me to realize how I managed to overcome my anxiety of tackling something foreign to me (the business aspect of the simulator) by preparation.
I was fortunate enough to have been selected for the next step and this past week took part in the Pinsight simulation which was just a tremendous experience and a real challenge. It was unlike anything I have ever done and required that I utilized skills that I do not use often, and some that I did not know I possessed. I am now in Florida overlooking the gulf and reviewing the report from Pinsight; very insightful and motivating. Thanks again for the opportunity. My only regret is that I did not experience it 20 years earlier in my career.
I felt very challenged by the Pinsight assessment- in a good way, and am impressed by the reviewers’ credentials. I look forward to her insightful feedback.
