Abstract:

Orpheus is a broad spectrum 190 item work-based combined personality and integrity questionnaire that generates scores on sixteen scales - seven minor scales, five major scales, and four audit scales. The minor scales of Orpheus are Proficiency, Work-orientation, Patience, Fair-mindedness, Loyalty, Disclosure and Initiative, and are designed to assess the integrity traits of carelessness, poor work orientation, anger, resentfulness, disloyalty, lying and inertia, within a framework traced back to Prudentius in the Fourth Century AD. The major scales are Fellowship, Authority, Conformity, Emotion and Detail and are based on the ‘big five’ model of personality. The study reports a validation of the Orpheus Minor Scales against 7 adjective check lists on a sample of 380 respondents in employment settings in the United Kingdom. General issues relating personality and integrity testing are also discussed.
