Frequently Asked Questions

Is ASK valid and reliable?

Current ASK is in its 2nd edition since 2012, with 5 years and over 30,000 respondents in use of practice and research to support its validity. Here are some technical points to support;

  • Oblique rotation used for factor analysis, showing correlation and comparable with other instruments such as Personality Research Form (PRF) and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
  • Adopted test-retest model (2 weeks, 2 months) for reliability (mean score of .8 and .87 respectively)
  • Norm sample Cronbach coefficient alpha mean score of .76
How do you ensure the results are correct?

We do acknowledge that sometimes people will attempt to trick their way into producing a result that they want, however, ASK has pattern detectors built in to ensure true picture:

  • Detect tendency to project socially desirable personality
  • Gauge randomness / (in)decisiveness / comprehension in answering
  • Measure conformity
How is ASK different from other tools?

While ASK is based on a study that started in the 1960s, we have applied social appropriation measures to reflect true and fair Malaysian values / context instead of Western ideals.

In addition, we are the first in our domestic market with particular focus on Malaysian youth-adolescent demographic.
