Orpheus is a broad spectrum 190-item work-based combined personality and integrity questionnaire that generates scores on 16 scales – 7 minor scales, 5 major scales, and 4 audit scales. The minor scales of Orpheus are proficiency, work-orientation, patience, fair-mindedness, loyalty, disclosure, and initiative, and they are designed to assess the integrity traits of carelessness, poor work-orientation, anger, resentfulness, disloyalty, lying, and inertia, within a framework traced back to Prudentius in the 4th century A.D. The major scales are fellowship, authority, conformity, emotion, and detail, and they are based on the Big Five model of personality. In this study a validation of the Orpheus Minor Scales against 7 adjective check lists is reported for a sample of 380 respondents in employment settings in the United Kingdom. General issues relating to personality and integrity testing are also discussed.
