This paper outlines the development of a tool that synergies advances in personality theory using three distinct development methods as outlined by Burisch (1986). Big Five personality theory guided the inductive development of 5 Aspect Pairs in the new measure representing the two poles of each Big 5 factor. Deductive modelling of key components of Jungian Concepts was used to break down each Aspect into 3 or 4 Qualities. Criterion-centric analysis of scale relationships with 16 Leader Capabilities resulted in the development of a universal Professional Capabilities Framework and refinements on the predictor side. Separate facets representing Underlying (personality), Everyday (Behaviour) and Overextended (‘Under Pressure’)’ Personas were developed. Factor Analysis of the 32 Qualities (N=2158) replicates the Big Five Factor nicely. Results show that various supposedly ‘incompatible’ measures of behavior can be integrated thus advancing scientific understanding of the constructs and their application.
