Fiedler's Least Preferred Coworker Scale (LPC)

Fielder's LPC scale is used to determine the leadership style of an individual. Use the following questionnaire to determine your own LPC score. 

Instructions:

  • Think of a person you would least prefer to work with.
  • He is not the person you dislike personally, but is the person with whom you would have most difficulty in getting the job done.
  • This person might be someone you work with now or in past.
  • The person might be a subordinate, coworker or boss.  

Now select the adjectives that best describes that person in the questionnaire below. The questionnaire has set of qualities (adjectives), that are complementary to one another, hence the form is bipolar. If you find a person somewhat unpleasant , you select '-1' that is closer to 'unpleasant'.
