New Perspective Scales

Individuality (how I see myself) compared to how most people see themselvesDistinctiveness (how I see myself) compared to how I see most people

  • Only available when both “self” and “others” data is present.
  • Means that Birkman is likely the only assessment that can measure this.

Social Acuity (how I see others) compared to how most people see others

  • The closer your Need score is to 50, the higher your social acuity will be.

Image Management (how I see myself) compared to how I see others

  • In the context of social desirability
  • Improved version of Challenge
  • A measure of the intensity of the respondent’s positive self-image
  • Will show values of self-affirming & others-affirming (inverse of  self critical & most critical)
