Application

Assesses the Big Five dimensions of personality: Emotional stability, Extraversion, Openness, Conscientiousness and Agreeableness, each of which is comprised of six facets. The Personality Structure Inventory enables future behavioral tendencies to be predicted. The modular structure of the test enables the individual dimensions and their facets to be assessed separately. In personnel selection and development this provides an economic means of assessing suitability in terms of particular requirements profiles. For example, it can be used in staff & management assessments, manufacturing & safety assessments and academic testing and can also provide valuable information in relation to job and career placement (educational counseling).

Administration

Using a four-point answer scale, respondents indicate how typical the given adjective is of them.
