CAPP Dimensions

CAPP produces a comprehensive profile of personal potential by measuring the most important dimensions of a person's traits and abilities, including:

  • Intelligence
  • Personality
  • Attitudes
  • Values
  • Motivation
  • Emotionality
  • Coping ability
  • Social skills
  • Communication skills
  • Management skills

While some of these traits and abilities are relatively stable and difficult to modify, most are amenable to change. In addition to establishing a complete inventory of a person's skills and behavior dispositions, one of the major uses of CAPP is to identify areas for personal and professional development.

The personal profile produced by CAPP is organized around the following five dimensions or domains of a person's traits and abilities, as identified in decades of research in psychology and organizational behavior:


  • Cognitive Capacity
  • Flexibility
  • Creativity
  • Ethical standards
  • Need for achievement
  • Need for power
  • Need for self-assertion
  • Need for culture
  • Need for affiliation
  • Emotionality
  • Energy
  • Excitability
  • Apprehensiveness
  • Stress resistance
  • Social interaction skills
  • Leadership skills
  • Communication skills
  • Conflict management skills
  • Methodical approach
  • Entrepreneurial approach
  • Managerial efficacy
  • Responsibility

These traits and dimensions are assessed by means of a variety of measurement techniques (see the "Tests" page on this site) as well as via subjective self-assessment. It is therefore possible to contrast the candidate's self-image with objective test results. In many cases, this comparison is an extraordinarily valuable tool for self-insight and the planning of programs for personal development.
