What does TAIS Evaluate?

TAIS measures 20 different psychological factors: 6 attentional factors and 14 interpersonal factors. These factors include the following:

Attentional Factors:

  • Awareness – measure of the individual’s “street sense”, ability to react quickly and instinctively to things going on around him/her, and sensitivity to the environment and to the non-verbal (emotional) messages people often send.
  • External Distractibility – measure of the individual’s tendency to become distracted by task irrelevant things going on in the environment
  • Analysis/Conceptual – measure of the individual’s ability to plan, to think strategically, to anticipate the consequences of various courses of action, and to problem solve
  • Internal Distractibility – measure of the tendency for the person to become distracted by thoughts and/or feelings
  • Action/Focused – measure of the individual’s tolerance for engaging in repetitive behaviour, and for attending to details
  • Reduced Flexibility  measure of the tendency to either become too focused internally, or externally. Performance mistakes are made because the person fails to make needed shifts in their focus of attention

Complete your TAIS

The Attentional & Interpersonal Style (TAIS) Inventory measures how individuals concentrate and behave. It is an inventory of style, not ability or intelligence. There are no right or wrong answers.

The TAIS Inventory consists of 144 items. Please allow approximately 45 minutes of uninterrupted time to complete the assessment. You will not be timed, so please take whatever time you need.

Each TAIS Item describes a thought, behavior or a general statement. One of five responses to each item will be presented:

Never | Rarely | Sometimes | Frequently | Always

Please select the response that best describes you.

As you respond to each item, the next one will automatically appear. If you are unsure of your response to an earlier item, a Previous button is provided for you to navigate back.

There is no “pause and resume” feature. Occasional slight pauses may occur, due primarily to variations in network activity and connectivity.
