A questionnaire for the assessment of Pavlovian temperament – a new version of the Strelau Temperament Survey (KT).

DESCRIPTION: The questionnaire has 57 items which the subject rates on a 4-point true-false rating scale (from “definitely disagree” to “definitely agree”. The items form three basic scales: Strength of Excitation (SE), Strength of Inhibition (SI) and Mobility of Nervous Processes (M). In addition to these three scales, balance of nervous processes, i.e., the SE:SI ratio, is calculated.

RELIABILITY: Satisfactory internal consistency and stability.

VALIDITY: Demonstrated on the basis of correlations of PTS scores with other temperament and personality tests, genetic studies of the determinants of traits measured by the PTS and factor analysis.

NORMS: Standard ten norms for 6 age groups (15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60-80) developed on the basis of a sample of over 4 000, separately for males and females.

APPLICATIONS: For research and practical use – particularly in vocational counselling (selection) and educational counselling. In particular, it helps to predict functioning in difficult situations.
