So a word of caution, whilst psychometrics are very powerful and revealing, they should be used appropriately.

Great plain-English description of psychometrics and their evolution and how the tool itself impacts the quality of the predictability. As an introductory article in the use of psychomterics for assessment and development I think it would have been important to distinguish between TYPE and TRAIT. Specifically how the former lends itself to development and the latter to assessment. I see many cases where organisations are using a Type-tool for assessment purposes without realising the limitation of this in terms of predictability of future performance. The marketing of some type-tools are vague enough to allow users to believe they are following the most rigorous methods. Given the clear and approachable style in which the article was written it's an opportunity missed to add this essential distinction.
