Assessment Description

The Attentional and Interpersonal Styles (TAIS) Inventory®

Psychologist Bob Nideffer observed that the quality of attention mattered most in the performance of athletes. The more he studied attention, it became apparent that attention has several channels and the capacity to appropriately use the right channel at the right time makes the difference.

Nideffer explored attention in terms of external/internal and broad/narrow. He found that external scanning is quite different from external focus. As his work continued, he found the role of various interpersonal qualities such as expressiveness of ideas or anger influenced attentional qualities. Further he discovered the role of distractions in limiting performance.

Dr. Nideffer developed the TAIS ® instrument - a 144 item self-report inventory that measures twenty different concentration skills, personal and interpersonal attributes.

The TAIS ® is a rich report that is complete with attention, distraction, and interpersonal related results.

Comprehensive in data presentation, the recipient of the TAIS ® report and profile will know what specific areas to address to aid development and enhance performance.
