This questionnaire identifies work related attitudes, interests and abilities. There is no right or wrong response. Your first response is the best.   Be candid!      Manipulation lowers results.  

There are
100 statements for you to respond to. Below each statement are three basic response benchmarks. In the sample below,  the statement is " In comparison to others, etc.," and r
esponse benchmarks are  " Below average..... Average..... Above Average." Your response will be somewhere between  "Below Average" and "Above Average."       Think of it as a sliding scale.

In comparison to others, I believe in 5 years my income will be:

Below average

Average

Above Average

Above the response line is a line of numbers. The numbers, themselves, only identify the location of your response for the grading computer but mean nothing else. A set of two numbers is needed for the computer to locate your response. If you look along the response scale and then look above to the number scale, you'll see a set of numbers that corresponds in position to your desired response. Those two numbers are what you type in the box to the left of each statement.

 For example: In the sample, suppose you feel your income will be "average." Your answer could be "18" if you felt exactly average, or  "74" for slightly less than exactly average or "89" for slightly more than exactly average. Let's say "74" is comfortable for you.Type that in the answer box. As you can see, "average" includes numbers from 27 to 37.  

If  "way above average" was what you felt, you might have selected " 43" or "31" or "47, "or somewhere in-between 77 and 47. There's little difference between one set of numbers and others, close- by. Your choice doesn't have to be the perfect two numbers, for results to be accurate.

None of the statements relate to race, sex, religion or National origin. Results generated greatly exceed all statistical validity and adverse impact requirements of the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection in full compliance with Federal and State regulations.
