15 Factor Questionnaire Plus (15FQ+)

Article Index

When you need to assess the personality of educated adults such as executives and professionals, the 15FQ+ is the Psytech instrument of choice. With this questionnaire, you have access to a wide range of computer-generated reports covering the 16 primary personality factors, as well as team types, leadership styles, subordinate styles, influencing styles, and career themes. It also calculates an estimate of emotional intelligence. Additionally, special interpreted reports are available via our online system. These include the emotional intelligence report which relates the 15FQPlus scales to Goleman's model of emotional intelligence and the managerial competency report which relates the 15FQPlus scales to Psytech's "Fine Nine" competency model. A new report discussing possible counterproductive behaviour has also been added (The "derailer report").
