SOSIE is much richer than just a personality measure as it identifies both an individual's personality traits and their interpersonal and personal values.
An increasing number of organisations now require there to be a level of fit between the cultural or Brand values and those of the individual. A clash between personal and organisational values can often lead to disillusionment in a role or with an organisation.
- SOSIE measures twenty dimensions which fall under three areas: Personality traits; Interpersonal Values; Personal Values
- Profile report – A profile of standardised scores displays the 20 basic dimensions of SOSIE and reveals the strengths and areas for further development of one’s behavioural style. View sample report
- Interpretation and Feedback Guide with Competency Mapping – offers a comprehensive approach to the interpretation of the multilayered SOSIE results built around eight key competencies. View sample report
- Developed in 1991 from three existing questionnaires developed by Leonard V.Gordon (Gordon Personality Professional Inventory (GPPI), the Survey of Interpersonal Values (SIV) and Survey or Personal Values (SPV))
