Kolbe A Index
The Kolbe A Index measures a person’s instinctive method of operation (M.O.), and identifies the ways he or she will be most productive.
Kolbe Action Modes® are observable behaviors driven by instinct, not personality or IQ. Instincts are not measurable, but the conative (or purposeful) acts derived from them are measurable by the Kolbe Index.
The Kolbe A™ Index produces a four-number result representing an individual’s natural way of taking action in four different behavior patterns, or Kolbe Action Modes®:
Fact Finder − gathering and sharing information
Follow Thru − arranging and designing
Quick Start − dealing with risk and uncertainty
Implementor − handling space and tangibles
Kolbe Index results have been proven to be unbiased by gender, age, and race.
It need only be taken once, since these innate abilities do not change over time.
