Personal Orientation Inventory (POI)

The Personal Orientation Inventory (POI) measures the attitudes and values of normal to high-functioning adults in terms of the concept of "self-actualizing." When used in counseling or as a pre- and post-therapy measure, the POI provides a picture of an individual’s level of positive mental health. In addition to therapeutic applications, the POI is useful in research, employee development, and studies of consumer behavior.

MAJOR POI SCALES

Time Competence (TC): The degree to which an individual identifies with the present.
Inner-Directed (I): The degree to which an individual is independent and self-supportive.

POI RATIOS

Time Ratio: Time Incompetence/Time Competence - measures whether time orientation is primarily in the present or the past and/or future.
Support Ratio: Other-Directed/Inner-Directed - defines relative autonomy by assessing a balance between Other- and Inner-Directedness. Individuals who score high on the former tend to be dependent, whereas the latter tend to be self-willed.
