Author: Kets de Vries, Manfred F. R. ; Engellau, Elisabet ; Florent-Treacy, Elizabeth ; Vrignaud, Pierre ; Korotov, KonstantinINSEAD Area: Entrepreneurship and Family EnterpriseIn: International Journal of Human Resource Management, vol. 17, no. 5, May 2006 Language: EnglishDescription: p. 898-917.Type of document: INSEAD ArticleNote: Please ask us for this itemAbstract: The Personality Audit (PA) was developed to meet a need for a relatively simple multiple feedback instrument that could clarify the various motivational needs of executives. Using a psychodynamic approach to leadership, the PA allows the test-taker to assess him- or herself in seven personality dimensions important in human behavior and to identify personal "blind spots." The resulting insights can be used to formulate appropriate leadership development goals. The objective of this article is to describe the design and psychometric properties of the PA. This 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. This article describes in detail the conceptual foundations of the questionnaire, the psychometric methods used to confirm its validity and reliability, and possible directions for future research.
