Description of the Test:

The OTP contains 88 items and assesses the individual in terms of Jungian psychological types, a classification system developed by Myers in the MBTI and based on four bipolar characteristics: 1 Extraversion-Introversion (E vs I); 2 Sensing-Intuition (S vs N); 3 Thinking-Feeling (T vs F); 4 Judging-Perceiving (J vs P). On the basis of scores on these characteristics, people can be classified into one of 16 possible types. The OTP is entirely different in content and design from the MBTI -the original ‘type indicator’. For the OTP, questions are couched either in terms of workplace activity, or in terms that could perfectly well be work-based even if not exclusively so. For the OTP, the four scales are treated both as a basis for categorisation and as dimensions. A fifth, ‘response style’ score -’Uncertainty’ - is also produced.
