At times we arrange the opportunity for participants to retake the assessment, but only after considering the following first:
- The test/retest reliability of the Motives scales is +/- 6 points. This means that the majority of results do not change enough to alter the basic understanding or interpretation of the results. In retest, assessment results that were close to a border of a different MVS or Conflict Sequence might move to the other side of that border, but that is rare. When that happens, we have point 2.
- Most people who retake the assessment prefer their first results.
- The SDI is FOR you not ABOUT you. It is not intended as a diagnostic nor to put you in a box, but rather to allow you to recognize your preferences and motives and then how those things change when faced with conflict. Humans are complex and some aspects of your results might feel more accurate than others. This is expected.
When you are considering taking the SDI assessment again, here are some questions for you to consider:
- What do you believe the results are saying about you?
- What are you hoping they would say?
- Have you reviewed your results with a certified facilitator? If not, we encourage you to do so.
- Finally, if you believe it is important to redo the assessment you may choose 1 of the 2 options below:
