LEONARD Personality Inventory

 

 

Introduction

The LEONARD Personality Inventory (LPI) was designed by Dr. Leonard Yong, psychologist and retired professor at the University of Malaya. The LPI helps to identify behavioral preferences of individuals. The LPI is formulated based on the Five Factors Model (FFM) of human personality. It is anchored under the Types & Traits Theory of classical personality theories.

The LEONARD Personality Inventory is named after the acronym Let’s Explore our personality based on Openness, Neutral, Analytical, Relational and Decisive behavioral tendencies.


International Application

The LPI has been administered to thousands of individuals from Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.


About LPI

The LPI can identify a person’s emotional orientation and locate a person’s preferred behavioral orientations on any of the five following behavioral dimensions: Creative Imaginator, Neutral Expert, Analytical Thinker, Relator and Decision-Maker. The individual’s profile may be any of the above or a combination. Hence, the LPI yields 24 classical personality types.


Benefits of LPI

The primary use of the LPI is to assist individuals to develop self-awareness with regards to their emotional strengths and weaknesses.
Research has shown that the success of corporate leaders, outstanding entrepreneurs and individuals are not defined by their IQ’s or their skills, but by their ability to identify, understand and manage their emotions and use this knowledge to interact and communicate with others.
The LPI profile will help individuals to understand and appreciate emotional strengths and weaknesses.
