    Detailed Description+

    Assesses personality characteristics relevant to weapons psychology.
    This objective, multi-dimensional questionnaire obtains the respondent’s self-assessments in relation to social behavior, emotional state / stability and his/her level of self-control and self-reflection. These characteristics are particularly relevant to the responsible handling of weapons. This special personality test is therefore suitable for the weapons-related reliability test under Section 3 (2) of the implementing order relating to the first German Weapons Act (1. WaffV).

    • Self-reflection: The level of intellectual flexibility and nuanced thinking as a measure of self-reflection.

    The subsidiary variable Openness of the self-description describes how open and self-critical the person’s responses are.
