 SCORING YOUR QUESTIONNAIRE:

Compute your scores from the 20 questions according to the following procedure: 

  • Reward Power – sum your responses to questions 1, 13, 16 and 17
  • Coercive Power – sum your responses to questions 3, 9 11 and 12
  • Legitimate Power – sum your responses to questions 5, 14, 18 and 20
  • Referent Power – sum your responses to questions 2, 4, 6, and 7
  • Expert Power – sum your responses to questions 8, 10, 15, and 19

 INTERPRETING YOUR QUESTIONNAIRE:

A high score (16 or greater) on any of the five dimensions of power implies that you prefer to influence others by employing that particular form of power.  A low score (8 or less) implies that you prefer not to employ this particular form of power to influence others.  These score represent your personal power profile.

YOUR TASKS:

  1.  What do your scores suggest about your use of power to influence others?
  2.  On what power dimensions did you score the highest and the lowest?
  3.  Were the results of your power profile a surprise to you, or did you pretty much find what you expected?
  4. How do you attempt to influence the people with whom your work?
  5. If you hold power in an organization, what is its basis?  How do you prefer to exert power over others.
