Orpheus, a broad-spectrum work-based personality questionnaire, is designed to help inform the decisions that will affect whether individuals are hired for the right roles in the right working environments.
Background[edit | edit source]
Orpheus has been developed by the highly regarded psychometrician and the only Professor of Psychometrics in the UK, Dr John Rust. Based on the well-established ‘Big Five’ model, currently recognised as the most stable and well-defined structure of personality, Orpheus contains 190 items, generating scores on 16 scales, of which the ‘Big Five’ are Fellowship, Authority, Conformity, Emotion and Detail. The minor scales are based on the Prudentius model of integrity, making Orpheus the most versatile personality-profiling tool available in the market today.
