A radar chart for personality assessment test visualization

Excel 2016
Today, HR professionals in large companies build detailed personality profiles, which include scores of workplace-oriented behavioral indices of the employee. The behavioral scores cover such areas as leadership, communication skills, interpersonal finesse, empathy, diligence, rationality, analyticity, etc.

Here radar charts become especially handy because tables, bars, and lines look cluttered and are hard to analyze for a large number of variables.
