    • MSP Standard Example Date of testing: 04.03.2012 22:48:43 CET Validity of the test: 3 months 1 INTRODUCTION When reading “My Secret Potential PLUS” please bear in mind that: 1. None of the values can be labeled “good” or “bad”. The values must be interpreted in the context of the personal and professional aspirations of the individual and the specific personal and professional environment. Values that are crucial in one occupation or a particular firm could be a block to work in another job or differently run firms. 2. All values can change and the individual’s performance can be improved. “My Secret Potential PLUS” provides key information for understanding the individual’s strength and weaknesses, which permits the development of effective strategies for personal development and correct management. Do not look at “My Secret Potential PLUS” as a psychological typology but as a real aid to better professional engagement. 3. A person is usually part of a group. All the measured values therefore describe individuals’ attitudes and behavior within their respective groups and specific conditions. They represent the mutual influence (interaction) of individuals and their environment. For effective overall group performance it is important to have a variety of roles and approaches within a team. Diversity is essential for the creation of an optimal team, but it can also be a source of conflict 4. Where there is a "normal" position in the graphs, it is based on a research project, where 300.000 individuals were diagnosed. It is thus only an average value and should be used only for comparison. 5. This document contains sensitive personal data. Take care that it is used ethically, with discretion, and in accordance with the law on personal data protection. Warning: this document contains private information.

    • MSP Standard Example Date of testing: 04.03.2012 22:48:43 CET Validity of the test: 3 months Tip The roles form a “snail” shape with the roles that suit you best at the top where values are highest. The lowest values are the roles that do not suit you. What are social roles? The concept of roles is not limited to plays and movies. They can be defined as an integrated system of attitudes, arguments, opinions, habits and the specific activities that they produce, which together make up the typical behavior of a person in a group. In work meetings we can see innovators, passive participants and permanent critics of everything that happens or is planned. Many of us behave one way in a “suit” and completely different when at home in a “t-shirt and jeans”. All of us play some sort of a “role” nearly all the time we are in contact with our surroundings. There is increasing interest in identifying the social roles that test subjects play. This can be crucial to putting together a successful team. No matter how much we try to ignore them, we always end up falling into a role. It is necessary to learn to recognize them and work with them. The description of roles that we use is based on many years of research and analysis. The names (e.g. strategist, visionary, endurance athlete etc.) have been chosen to provide the best characterization of the basic principles of each role. How to read the results of the graph? The roles are ranked in the graph from the most frequently to least frequently performed. The test subject’s ideal roles are situated at the top of the “snail”. Moving clockwise, the roles are in descending order of how often and with what benefit they can be used. For a subject, only the first three or four roles are statistically significant (in terms of the frequency and content of use – the need, taste and tendency to perform or fulfill such a role). At the opposite end of the scale are three or four roles that the test subject strongly objects to fulfilling or performing. In everyday life we do not meet with “role monotypes”. On the contrary, roles tend to come in groups and overlap with each other. It is useful to have a combination of strong and supporting roles. This overlapping ensures that there will be a strong identification between the individual and the group and the group and the individual, which reinforces their adaptive potential. The form of a circular graph emphasizes certain groupings of roles. We can see the “Snail” – a gradual, balanced decline in the ability to perform a role. The “Seashell” shows a significant preference for the first half of the roles, while the second half is strongly resisted. The “Sea horse” has a very strong preference for the first two or three roles and then a gradual fall in preferences half way round the circle. Beyond the half-way mark values are minimal. Here too we should apply the principle of strengths and weaknesses. If the field making up the “snail” is balanced and large, the test subject is able to fulfill and perform the majority of roles. If the field is oriented towards only a few roles – if there is a strong “snail” shape – it is better to place the test subject only in those preferred roles. At the same time, they should not be expected to manage roles that they dislike or have a low affinity for. The actual performance and fulfillment of roles depends both on personal choice, delegated powers and other factors such as the structure of the group, function and so on. In groups we are always able to prefer and use a variety of roles. Definition of roles according to their use We can divide the roles covered by our test into three basic categories. They can also be categorized according to how “broad” and “strong” they are. In the following we will get to know the roles’ individual characteristics.

They need little encouragement to be active, accommodating, to exercise self-control and make use of the space that those around them (including the authorities) “offer for work”. They try to find and offer solutions to work problems and to help colleagues without thinking of any reward.

    • MSP Standard Example Date of testing: 04.03.2012 22:48:43 CET Validity of the test: 3 months What is the atmosphere of relationships or shared social climate? We do not live on a desert island and so (whether we like it or not) we are nearly always part of a smaller or larger group. Through our behavior we contribute to the quality of the social (relationship) climate within these groups. This aspect of personality is particularly important for personnel management, but also for the leaders of all kinds of interest groups. It indicates how the test subject will support the performance and effectiveness of the group as a whole (proactively, problematically or obstructively?). The shared social climate has a strong influence on the character of other measured parameters. These parameters must be taken as interdependent and not judged separately. Our evaluation of social climates distinguishes two main perspectives: • overall associative conditions (shared social climate) • personal life The climate in one profile is not always identical in all measured areas. Research and analysis have identified the characteristics of eight basic types of climate in three quality bands. These can be described as nurturing, problematic and obstructive climates. The climates are given “friendly” names in the following text. Nurturing climates • “Heaven´s Gate” climate • “Pink Glasses” climate • “Bulldozer of truth” climate Problematic climates • “War Valley” climate • “Mount Everest” climate Obstructive climates • “Bulldozer of wrath” climate • “Defense in the Trenches” climate • “Hell´s Gate” climate Warning: this document contains private information.

All of us respond to it differently. Some of us remain entirely calm even under high levels of stress. Others skillfully hide the effects of stress. For others, even the effects of a little stress can be a big problem. The results for Stress Links will tell you how it is with you and what causes your reactions to stress. Stress level Response to stress Person experiences a higher level of internal stress and is strongly motivated by stress; they show normal handling of stress outwardly. What person perceives as stress and is able to work with Internal: I am aggressive, My illness, My fear, My mistakes, My fault, I am ashamed External: Risk, Medicine, I am not allowed to, I am not able to, Strain, I don't want What person does not perceive as stress and is unable to work with Internal: My defense, I am punished External: Slowness, People Warning: this document contains private information.

A stress reaction is an automatic reflex. It may be perceived positively (stimulation, activation) or negatively. Stress affects not only physical parameters but also inward emotional experience, reasoning, outward behavior and relationships. We can review the following frequently used terms: Stress refers to a person’s overall reaction to a stimulus or stressor. What do we respond to as stressors? Stressors are highly individual. A situation that causes significant stress for one individual can be neutral for another person and for yet another be a source of pleasant satisfaction (e.g. travel by plane). The population has classified a variety of terms as stressors. These can be subdivided in internal and external mental losses: Internal losses include: My fault, My mistakes, I am punished, My illness, I am aggressive, My fear, My pain. External losses include: Risk, Effort, Slowness, Medicines, I must not, I don’t know how to, I don’t want to. Your profile shows only the terms that you see as stressors. The list may differ from that of the population as a whole. Warning: this document contains private information.

Adaptability is one of the most valuable abilities and characteristics for every person. It has played and plays a key role at all stages in human development. It is precisely a person’s level of adaptability that creates the fundamental differences in how we cope with life. How able are we to adapt to changing conditions and how able are we to adapt conditions to our needs? The results of this part of the test will help to guide your own reactions to changing conditions and your ability to respond to them. Is person willing to change? Is person able to make changes? Person is internally strongly in favor of change, adapts to it quickly and makes it central to life. Changes they think of and see as necessary, they quickly, reliably and acceptably carry out. What motivates change? Internal: Time, Reality, My will, My intuition, Speed, Self-regulation, Change External: Computers, Control, Property, Competition, Responsibility Warning: this document contains private information.

Our potential for coping with change and adapting to it is an important condition for our social integration and for our success. What is reliable motivation for change? Each of us responds to a different form of motivation. We can, however, identify words that can be used reliably for a test subject to adapt to change. The population has selected a range of words as motivational terms.

In this section of the test report we will look at them in more detail. What value do you give them? The words we use most in daily life belong to the categories Satisfiers and motivators, Operators and Stressors. Ideals and Destructors are difficult to apply because their use costs the user and those around them too much strength. The table thus gives a quick indication of how the test subjects value hierarchy compares to that of the population average. The aim is not, of course, to bring one’s own value hierarchy into line with average values but to identify where there are differences and to decide how to work with them in future.

    • MSP Standard Example Date of testing: 04.03.2012 22:48:43 CET Validity of the test: 3 months Ideals This value group includes words that mean “absolute good” for the person. In reality this can never be achieved. Ideals include strategic objectives that benefit the test subject or the group (firm). This does not however apply to words that characterize their everyday activities and routine work instruments. By using such words the test subject would automatically overvalue their significance, importance, quality and value for themselves and for those around them. Satisfiers and motivators These are the main sources of mental energy. Here can be found words that pleasantly encourage, motivate and satisfy the test subject. The test subject also tends to use these words to positively reward other people. They relate to realistic, short-term objectives that are a source of reward and satisfaction. Operators The words in the operator group are a routine part of everyday life. People do not think about them a lot and they are used according to current needs and situations (coffee cups, toothbrushes). The test subject will also use them with people around them, even if the people around them do not take them as standard. Operators facilitate work and dealing with situations without unnecessary emotional investment. Stressors Stressors are words that create unpleasant stress in the test subject and that they usually seek to avoid. They may do this through active resistance, the shifting of responsibility to a colleague or by “forgetting” about the task connected with this term. Test subjects also use the same words to “stress” those around them. If they are required to, however, they can work with stressors. Destructors This group contains words that the test subject associates with “absolute evil”. They can use them to destroy themselves and those around them. They hide a high level of danger. If the test subject chooses different words as destructors than those around them, this can be a source of serious conflict in work and private life. Tip Combine the words in each category into sentences and you will find a guide to what rewards or stresses you. Example: If the phrases Speak, Slowness and My errors appear in stressors, then something that the subject is guaranteed to avoid and become stressed by is talking about the errors that caused his/her slowness.
