This questionnaire is designed to help you find out your roles when working as part of a team.
There are 7 "questions" and each is followed by 8 statements. For each "question" you should select the statements that "sound most like you". Then allocate a total of 10 points across the statements you have selected, according to how applicable you think each statement is to you.
In an extreme case you may allocate all 10 points over all 8 statements. More typically, you will want to give points to, say, 3 or 4 rather than all of the statements. For example: 2, 3, 3, 2 and 4 zeroes; or 6, 3, 1 and 5 zeroes.
Please make sure the points allocated total 10 for each "question".
