The LEONARD Personality Inventory


Based on a number of years of research into the personality traits of Malaysians, Dr. Leonard Yong has developed the LEONARD Personality Inventory (LPI). The LPI has been named in this way because it attempts to help us with Let's Explore our Openness, Neutral, Analytical, Relational and Decisive behavioural tendencies. The LEONARD Personality Inventory can identify a person's emotional orientation and locate a person's preferred behavioural orientation on any of the five behavioural dimensions, namely Openness, Neutral, Analytical, Relational and Decisive dimensions.

The LEONARD Personality Inventory is based on research work by Dr. Leonard Yong in the last ten years and is modelled after a combination of both the four Greek temperaments and the Big Five Model. The approximate equivalent of the LEONARD Personality Inventory to these two models are as follows: Greek Temperaments Phlegmatic Melancholic Sanguine Choleric LEONARD Openness = Neutral = Analytical = Relational = Decisive Big Five Model = Openness = Agreeableness = Conscientiousness = Extraversion or Surgency = Emotional stability

Results from the administrations of the LEONARD Inventory in Malaysia have indicated the validity and reliability of the Personality Inventory for the purpose of identifying the preferred behavioural styles of respondents. Intervention programs have been designed to assist individuals to enhance their emotional intelligence (intra-personal and interpersonal skills). This has been found to be especially useful in helping organizations, which have encouraged teamwork and innovative approaches to the workplace through harmonious and synergistic teamwork. Other uses include premarital and marital counselling.

Leonard Personality Inventory

Your strengths are as follows Most organisations would happily settle for anyone as conscientious as you are. Associates can count on you to embark on changes only after careful planning. While others may be happy to receive attention, you generally do not like to be the centre of attention. If ever there were a need to record history accurately, your keen sense for precision would render your work a reliable source. Do continue to be careful but try to live one day at a time. No worries about you not getting the job done. Your resolve to labour until you've finished your task is a healthy habit needed for all to emulate. You prefer to engage in constructive discussions. More often than not, you shun unproductive dialogues. The stage and timing have to be right for you to work in isolation and keep things to yourself. You are thorough in whatever you do. Anyone attempting to sell you a product had better be patient. This is especially true since you are not the type who can be easily rushed into making decisions. Others may label you as a loner but they need to understand that you are genuinely enjoying every moment of your privacy. You are cautious in who becomes your friends. You prefer to do things right, in the right way, at the right time, at the right place. Your individualism pays off in many situation, and your favourite song might just be Frank Sinatra's, "My Way". You love challenges. It is very important to you to be given the freedom to complete a job. You are the potential nightmare of anyone who picks a fight with you, or throws you a challenge; since you are not likely to stop once you start. Your refusal to be seen in weakness reinforces your appearance as an entity of steel, strength and courage. You are a person of action who likes to get things done quickly. When somebody needs to do the job, everybody will not have to worry that nobody will get it done, because that somebody is you. You thrive best in an atmosphere of instantaneity, where all endeavours and results are best executed and anticipated in the shortest time. You are probably the dream of almost every boss; jobs are carried out promptly and finished in time. Watching a football game with you in it, would never be a bore if all the other players had were as competitive as you are. Much disappointment and delay can be avoided if people are more decisive in what they want to achieve in their professional and personal lives. Your desire to win motivates you to strive for greater heights. In short, you are Olympic material. You may have these weaknesses What you reap is what you sow. Sow the seeds of kindness and you'll reap its abundant harvest. Touch another's life and one day that life may enrich yours in ways unimaginable. Learn to be more persuasive. Reach out to others when you interact with them and you'll be pleasantly surprised at their response. If you desire to have friends, start by trying to be more friendly with others. You may find it difficult to mix around with others. Reach out to others and they'll reach out to you. If everyone learnt to laugh, our hospitals would have less patients. Learn to have more humour in your life Who likes to hang around a depressed person? Smile, and the smile is returned. Give out joy, and it comes back to you.

Your approach/strategy and attitude towards learning Prefers to study alone. Receptive ear but not necessarily willing to adopt new ideas from others for fear of unproven track record. Studying in groups may result in your not listening to the opinions of others on a matter. Highly focused, persistent and not easily distracted. May be not so easily teachable, hence hindering fresh input from outside. Treats difficult subjects as delightful challenges and mountains to conquer. Very structured and systematic approach. To be a more effective learner Recognize that all the time in the world is not sufficient to cover all topics - hence, be selective and move on quickly. Don't regard interactive learning settings as fights that must be won, or as having opponents to happily crush -appreciate others' views and encourage them too laying aside your 'superiority'. You have to speak up more to clarify doubts for this is far more beneficial than being afraid to seem the fool or odd-ball. Be more spontaneous in interactive settings and participate actively by voicing your opinions. Be more relaxed and learn to enjoy a subject apart from treating it as a serious matter. Accept diverse opinions from others and view these opinions as potentially enriching. Be more adaptive.
