A lot of people are successful externally but are actually not happy internally.

This questionnaire contains statements to help you to become more aware about how big is that GAP between your external and internal self. This can be applied both in your personal and leadership development.

The size of your GAP will determine how happy you are, how authentic you are, how much you are living a life true to yourself, how much purpose you have in life. It is also how you represent yourself to yourself and others in life and work and determine your authenticity. Below each statement, tick the circle that represents how strongly you feel about the statement by using the following scoring system:

  • YES
  • NO
  • SOMETIMES

Be honest about your choices, as this will help you to reflect on the areas for growth. There are no right and wrong answers. By studying and reflecting upon your final score, you can determine areas for personal growth. The assessment is based on the books written and published by Raf Adams and Dr. Mike Thompson. The assessment will also provide solutions on how you can close the GAP.

Since this questionnaire is a learning tool used in training programs such as personal and leadership development, rather than a research tool, it has not been formally checked for reliability or validity. Please email me if you have suggestions to improve it.
