Application

Assesses personality characteristics relevant to traffic psychology.
The inventory captures self-assessments of the individual's readiness to take risks, social sense of responsibility, self-control and mental stability; this information can be used to compile a traffic psychological report. These characteristics are important for safe driving behavior. This special personality test is suitable for the traffic psychological testing of professional drivers and high-risk drivers.

Administration

Using a free scale, respondents rate the extent to which concrete statements about driving, leisure and work apply to them. The previous answer can be corrected once.

Test forms

One test form.

Scoring

The following main variables are scored:

  • Mental stability: The extent to which the respondent’s moods and opinions change, and how difficult or easy it is to unsettle or hurt him/her or put/her under stress.
  • Sense of responsibility: Measure of the individual’s values and adjustment to social norms.
  • Self-control: The level of conscientiousness, discipline and impulsiveness.
  • Adventurousness and need for excitement: The extent to which the respondent actively seeks excitement and behaves (in)cautiously in risk situations.

The control variable Openness identifies any tendency to give false answers.
