The LSP-R is rooted in three well-researched, standardized measures of personality: the Personality Research Form (PRF), the Jackson Personality Inventory-Revised (JPI-R), and the Survey of Work Styles (SWS). The LSP-R items were selected from a pool of over 4700 personality items using rigorous quantitative techniques.

Reliability and Validity

The PRF, JPI-R, and SWS, the measures upon which the LSP-R is based, have consistently displayed solid evidence of convergent and discriminant validity with self and peer ratings, as well as with numerous other measures. The research literature in psychology contains approximately 2000 articles citing one or more of these measures. Reliability estimates of each measure’s scales are reported in detail in the respective manuals.
