PAW - MAIN

MAIN PAW (PERSONALITY AT WORK)

 

I      GENERAL DESCRIPTION

 

The PAW is a very comprehensive test consisting of 250 test-items and providing the user with 89 scales to measure the entire personality field with. It consists of 5 substructures of which each consists of four Measuring Areas and the latter with a further three supportive factors – a total of 60 scales per substructure. Each one of the 5 substructures is reported on a separate page of the Summarized Report generated by the PAW. In order to minimise cost and paper, the user has the option to print only a One-Pager Summary of all the results obtained to get a full perspective as well as deciding whether or not to print out more detailed results. This One-Pager is called “THE CONDENCED SUMMARIZED REPORT”. The user also has the choice to select an “ABRIDGED SUMMARIZED REPORT” that would supply him with only the most critical defined constructs of the testee’s personality or opt for the full five page Summarized Report on the PAW. Although there is no time-restriction associated with the PAW, it can be completed in 60 minutes.

.

In addition to the above, the PAW boasts a Lie-Detector and Consistency Factor. The PAW is the most comprehensive personality test on the market and takes approximately an hour to one and a half hour to complete, but is providing the user with conclusive information on all angles relative to the field in personality. It can be used at all levels and to serve the full spectrum of needs a user may have in the field of Personality.
