15FQ+ Personality Questionnaire

The 15 Factor Questionnaire Plus provides an in-depth assessment of the full sphere of personality. This
instrument provides insight into how people typically think, feel and interact in ways that may be
productive or counter-productive for an organisation. Furthermore, it assesses a person’s strengths and
development needs and is a powerful tool enabling managers to select the most suitable person for key
positions in organisations.

What the 15FQ+ measures
Subordinate Style
  The range of styles a person is most likely to adopt. This may be of relevance to a variety of situations where a
  particular management style is already in place. E.g., tends to respond in a self-reliant manner.

  Leadership Style
  The range of styles a person is most likely to adopt. This may be of relevance to a variety of situations where there is
  a requirement to manage others. E.g. likely to act in a directive style.

The General Reasoning Test is used to measure general reasoning. The test consists of three sections
namely Verbal, Numerical and Abstract Reasoning Ability. As mental ability has been consistently found
to be the best single predictor of job performance, the GRT2 is an essential tool for cost-effective
selection and assessment across a wide range of roles. The test is also useful for identifying individuals
who are likely to benefit from further training and development, as well as those who demonstrate
promotion potential.

TSM Consulting can help you measure personality and general reasoning ability in your organisation
with the above mentioned instruments.
