The C.H.I.P.S. questionnaire is designed to produce profiles (patterns) of one's behavioral style and workstyle energies, and to assist in planning changes toward increased effectiveness. With the results of the questionnaire, three pictures or patterns are drawn, each focusing on behavior:
- (A) Behavior expected by others… projected by you… how you adapt.
- (P) Core, spontaneous, or natural behavior.
- (S) Self-perception: how you see yourself most of the time…
When you examine your three pictures or patterns, you can see how they vary. Do they change? Are they the same? The C.H.I.P.S. system is designed to:
Identify one’s workstyle energies when getting things done.
Identify one’s strengths
Explore how to create a motivational environment conducive to success.
Increase acceptance of others’ behaviors
Identify and minimize possible conflicts
- with yourself
- with others
- with the jobs you do... to increase productiveness
The C.H.I.P.S. system focuses on behavior which is overt and observable, rather than attitudes, feelings, or values which drive or guide behavior and are not observable. This is a benefit in people-reading.
The specific use of your workstyle energies determines your Personal Energy Profile (PEP). Comparing your PEP with others can be a strong indicator of compatibility.
