The 16PF Adolescent Personality Questionnaire (APQ) is a self-report personality inventory that was specifically developed and normed for adolescents. It elicits valuable information regarding the youth’s personal style, problem-solving abilities, preferred work activities, and areas where the youth is having problems, making the APQ appropriate for screening and for introducing sensitive topics in a counseling situation.
The test includes four sections:
The APQ is useful in situations where personality is relevant – educational adjustment, personal or social difficulty, and passage through one’s developmental tasks. The Work Activity Preferences section is particularly helpful with career exploration. In addition, the normal personality section (Your Personal Style) and the Work Activity section help professionals adjust their approach to the characteristics of the young person.
Two interpretive reports are available from this questionnaire – the APQ Guidance Report and the APQ Psychological Report. (IPAT)
Guidance report includes the first three sections.
Psychological report includes the first three sections plus the Life Difficulties section.
