Application

Covers “Self-confidence”, “Self-assertion” and “Social competence”.
The test has been developed as a screening tool for rapid identification of deficits in self-confident and socially competent behavior. The resulting planning of therapy can thus be tailored to the individual. It is also suitable for use as a research tool in connection with various issues that arise in differential personality psychology.
