Anne Lamport developed Profile Plus into a lifestyle questionnaire which discovers the ‘Blind Spots’ in people’s personalities that can cause difficulties in people’s relationships. Profile Plus also includes your amazing strengths and personality style, and gives practical tips for building better relationships. A lack of understanding of ourselves and these significant others can lead to:
- Hurt feelings
- Unmet expectations
- Poor communication
- Relationship breakdown
What is Profile Plus?
Profile Plus comes from 2 separate Psychometric Theories. One dating back to research begun by William Marsden and Prescott Leckey of Columbia University in the 1930’s, the other using the “folk concept” method pioneered by Gough with the California Psychological Inventory in 1960, Golberg and Hase 1967, and Megargee 1977. In 1988, Keith Lamport developed Profile Plus using these two seperate Psychometric Theories.
By utilising and combining two standard techniques of questionnaire construction the results become more accurate. The two Psychometric Theories check and validate the results and may throw up inconsistencies that may not be noted with one questionnaire.
