AFM: Assessing fundamental motivation via self-reports

Goal of the project is the development of a personality test – a self-report questionnaire containing statements to be assessed by test takers (test items) – based on a well-established personality model of motivation. Up to date, a royalty-free measure of the personality characteristics specified in the personality model is not available to researchers hampering applied research on the behavior and the outcomes which can be predicted by the personality model. Thus, a valid measure of the model is needed to allow researchers to study phenomena related to the model on a group-level, e.g. learning outcomes, job success, life satisfaction, career decisions. Further, these behaviors and outcomes are also of substantial interest on an individual-level. Thus, a valid measure of the model is also needed for the assessment of the individual’s personality profile which may be used for consulting purposes, e.g. career counseling, personnel selection etc. Timeframe for the project is three years.
