How do VC and investors perform Due Diligence of Founders?

Top VC funds/companies have different methods and strategies for assessing the founders. The evaluation is often a mix of observations, interviews, and traditional psychological tests. Some more advanced VCs work with organizational psychologists.

Why traditional psychological test lack precision?

Traditional psychological testing is mainly built upon personality questionnaires and logic tests. Capturing an individual’s subjective view of herself. And a small part of cognition testing the ability to solve one kind of problem in an unchanged environment. Research shows that traditional tests have a measurement precision of about 20 – 50%.
