Used for selection and development, and taking just 15 to 20 minutes required to complete, the BIP-6F is an economic alternative to the BIP.
To access tests on our HTS 5 platform, users can choose from either a subscription or a non-subscription option. With the subscription model, users will pay an annual fee – which then allows them access to a full range of discounted pricing, based on the quantities of test takers they have. Those opting not to use the subscription model will pay our regular prices which include our full-service administration fee. Visit this page for further information, or contact us by phone (01865 797920) or email to discuss the right fit for you.

The BIP-6F is much more than a short version of the BIP-- it offers a self-rating with 48 items that, in contrast to the BIP, tap into six broad higher-order dimensions (Commitment, Discipline, Dominance, Stability, Cooperation and Social Competence). While 33 of the 48 items can also be found in the BIP, the other 15 were created through research specifically for this measure.In contrast to many other assessments of personality, the BIP-6F has a distinct professional focus. This is evident in two ways: firstly, only professionally-relevant personality traits are included; secondly all of the statements in the questionnaire are business-focused.
Behaviour and personality outside of work are not covered. The BIP-6F is frequently used in discussion and planning for an individual’s professional development. The results can however be used more generally – for example for personal development.
While the BIP was developed deductively, the BIP-6F was constructed via factor analysis in an inductive way. The relationship of the 6 BIP-6F to the 14 BIP scales is analogous to that between the five NEO domains and their respective facets.
The BIP-6F is available online on our Hogrefe Testsystem with discounted options for self-administration (via our subscription option) or our hands-off Hogrefe administration, which includes candidate set-up and report download included in the price.
