Instructions

  • For each question, choose between the five available options.
  • Please answer all questions, even those you feel may not apply directly to you.
  • If you haven't experienced the scenario portrayed in a questoin, try to imagine what you would do in a similar situation.
  • Try and answer each question quickly and spontaneously.
  • This questionnaire requires honest reflection on how you think, feel and act in general, therefore try not to bother with possible doubts or reasoning. Go with the option that either feels right, or appears to be more correct than the others.
  • Avoid making a selection simply because it seems to be the right thing to say, or because it is socially desirable.
  • Avoid simply agreeing with statements as presented.
  • There are many reasons why someone might choose the middle response (neither inaccurate or accurate). They might be uncertain, they might think it depends on the situation, or they might think the item is irrelevant. Avoid, however, selecting the middle response, simply to avoid extreme selections.
  • This test can be taken once per day, per computer terminal. This ensures the accuracy of the reports and real time statistics.
