This exercise could not be simpler:
  • it will only take about ten minutes
  • there are no right or wrong answers
  • it will help you to gain a better understanding of yourself.
On page 3 of this test you will find a list of 54 different statements. You are merely required to agree or disagree with the statements that have been made. For example, one statement might say:

I prefer swimming to running


I often take on too many tasks

If, for any reason, you neither fully agree nor fully disagree with a particular statement, please try to decide whether you agree with it more or disagree with it more and circle the appropriate answer.

Please be honest when answering the questions. The greater the accuracy of your answers the more precise the test.

Once you have answered the questions, you should read the last page which explains how to calculate your score.

You can do this test as many times as you like and you should note the results of the test each time.
