The ProScan Survey is designed to measure the major aspects of self-perception, including an individual’s basic behavior, reaction to environment, and predictable behavior. Respondents are requested to react to each of 60 adjectives on a five-point scale under two separate perceptions, Basic Self and Priority Environment(s).
The ProScan Survey typically takes 15 minutes, but has no time constraint. It classifies five factors of behavior:
Individuals with high scores on this factor are described as concerned about getting things done, very competitive, decisive, calculating, and risk takers. Those with low scores are described as non-confrontive, supportive, cautious, and risk avoiders.
Individuals with high scores on this factor are described as outgoing, friendly, optimistic, and persuasive. Those with low scores are described as reserved, quiet, and introspective in social situations.
Individuals with high pace/patience scores are described as relaxed, dependable, likable, and at ease or cooperative with their environment. Those with low pace/patience scores are described as intense, action–oriented, pressing, spontaneous, and receptive to change.
Individuals with high scores on this factor are described as very precise, dedicated, careful, and concerned about what is “right.” Those with low scores on this factor are described as independent, free thinkers, and non-traditional.
Individuals with high scores on logic/rational are described as fact-oriented and analytical. Those with low scores are described as feeling-oriented and intuitive.
The results also provide information describing:
- Energy level
