Uchida-Kraepelin performance test and "personality"

The Uchida-Kraepelin performance test is, surprisingly, not a psychological test that was originally developed as a personality inventory.
The working curve of the <25-minute method> (15-minute work-5-minute break-10-minute work) and the subsequent <30-minute method> (15-minute work-5-minute break-15-minute work), and the clinical picture of the examinee. As a result of studying the correlation between the two, it was found that the working curve of the Uchida-Kraepelin performance test the characteristics of the examinee's Behavioral and personality traits, and it has come to be used as a personality inventory.

In the Results of the Uchida-Kraepelin performance test , the personality of the examinee is expressed by "five characteristics related to behavior and personality".

5 characteristics related to behavior and personality

  1. Adaptability
    Characteristics of getting started and adapting to the environment
  2. Flexibility
    Characteristics related to changes in mood and flexibility in responding to things (part of the variability of conventional judgment)
  3. Sensitivity
    Inner surface sensitivity and characteristics related to sensitivity (part of the variability of conventional judgment)
  4. Tenaciousness
    Characteristics related to tenacity and commitment to work on things (promotion of conventional judgment)
  5. Resilience
    Characteristics related to recovery from fatigue and endurance

Each of the five characteristics is "Low(-)", "Slightly low(-)", "Moderate(none)", "Slightly high(+)", and "High(++)" from the stage where the tendency of the characteristic is the lowest. It is evaluated on a 5-point scale.

Even candidates who are evaluated in the same zone by the Basic index can know their personality more deeply by looking at these five characteristics.

It should be noted here that "Low" or "High" does not mean good or bad.
If the situation requires the Behavioral and personality traits, it will be judged as "suitable person", otherwise it will be judged as "mismatch".
It means that any Behavioral and personality traits can be a strength or a weakness in some cases.
