Resource description

The objective of this working paper is to describe the design and psychometric properties of The Personality Audit (PA), a psychodynamic multiple feedback instrument used to help participants assess seven personality dimensions important in human behavior. The instrument, in contrast with other tools that can be used to clarify the inner theater of individuals, is designed not only to report information given by the test-taker but also to reflect the perceptions of observers representing both the test-taker's public and private spheres. Given the serious gap that often exists between an individual's self-perception and the perceptions others have of him/her, a multiple feedback approach presents a more concise and accurate picture of behavior than other traditional personality tests, providing helpful information to executives aspiring to become effective leaders. This working paper describes in detail the conceptual foundations of the questionnaire, and the psychometric methods used to confirm its validity and reliability. In addition, it discusses possible directions for future research.
