In this assessment you are given 28 sets of four words. Select one word from each set of four that MOST describes you and one word of the four that LEAST describes you.
This assessment is environmentally sensitive, which means that you may score differently in different situations. In other words, you may act differently at home than you do on the job. So, as you complete the assessment you should focus on one environment for which you are seeking to understand yourself. For instance, if you are trying to understand yourself in marriage, you should only think of your responses to situations in the context of your marriage. On the other hand, if you want to know your behavioral needs on the job, then only think of how you would respond in the job context.
One final thought as you give your responses. On these kinds of assessments, it is often best and easiest if you respond quickly and do not deliberate too long in deciding. Your response on one set of four words will not unduly influence your scores, so simply answer as quickly as possible and enjoy the process. Dont get too hung up, if none of the four words describe you or if there are some words that seem too similar, take a guess. Life is too short to worry about these issues on a personality assessment! And besides, if it really does bother you, it is probably because your C score is high and that is okay!
