Used for selection and development, and taking just 15 to 20 minutes, the Business-focused Inventory of Personality 6 Factors (BIP-6F) is an economic alternative to the Business-Focused Inventory of Personality (BIP).

The BIP-6F offers a self-rating with 48 items that, in contrast to the BIP, taps into six broad higher-order dimensions:

  1. Commitment
  2. Discipline
  3. Dominance
  4. Stability
  5. Cooperation
  6. Social Competence

While 33 of the 48 items can also be found in the BIP, the other 15 were created through research specifically for the BIP-6F. 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.
