Professional Personal Analysis Questionnaire

Important note: Our analysis is based upon the fact that all of us have strong and weak points, which is quite normal and acceptable - no one is perfect. The analysis contains several built-in systems whose function is to verify the authenticity of your answers. It is therefore recommended you answer the questions as sincerely as possible since manipulating will be judged negatively.

We guarantee full confidentiality.


  1. Make sure you understand each question: read it as many times as necessary. Please answer every question.
  2. There is no time limit for these questions. You can answer at your own pace. However, do not stay too long with one question. Answer it as soon as you understand it and go on to the next question.
  3. Do NOT consult a dictionary when answering questions.
  4. When an answer would be different if one considered the past rather than the present, answer as in the present.
  5. Be aware that the analysis contains questions and statements. Questions are answered with yes/no answers. Statements are answered with I agree/I disagree answers.
  6. Tick the box that corresponds to the question number by using one of the following three alternatives:
    Yes means mostly yes, or definitely yes.
    Maybe means uncertain, maybe, neither definitely yes or no.
    No means mostly no or definitely no.
  7. The Contact Person, named below, will be contacted within 24 hours of receipt of the questionnaire with the results.
  8. Now, fill in the details below and start on question number 1, being sure to answer every question.
