TOOLS > Facet 5

Facet5 is a self-assessment on-line tool which analyzes individual characteristics (in terms of behaviors, motivational drivers, attitudes) contextualized in the workplace.

The tool was developed at the end of the ’80 based on the Big Five model by the Australian psychologist Norman Buckley and has been validated at an international level.

The questionnaire is made up of 106 items, structured as pairs of definitions which describe the individual.
Most people complete Facet5 in about 15-20 minutes.

Both the questionnaire and the report are available in different languages.
