The Morrisby Profile is an integrated set of twelve tests which assess mental function. [1]

Published by Educational and Industrial Test Services Ltd, T/A The Morrisby Organisation, the Morrisby Profile (MP) is a considerably revised version of the Morrisby Differential Test Battery, originally authored by John Morrisby.

Format[edit | edit source]

It consists of six ability tests, four personality measures and two manual dexterity measures.

The six ability tests include:

  • the Compound Series Test (CST);
  • three General Ability Tests (GAT) (Verbal, Numerical and Perceptual);
  • the Shapes Test and the Mechanical Ability Test.

The four 'personality' measures are derived from four speed tests (which produce what is called the 'modal' profile).

Two other speed tests are used to produce the 'dexterity' profile.

Scoring[edit | edit source]

The ability tests may be used separately and the whole battery may be used either in its entirety as a selection and development measure or linked with an interest inventory and a computerised report to form the Morrisby Guidance Service (MGS).

Interpretation[edit | edit source]

Although scores on the ability measures can be related to the general population through norms, vocational interpretations are based more strongly on the pattern of aptitudes shown.
