What does MTQPLus measure?

MTQPLus comprises of four sub scales namely:


Individuals who score high on this scale feel that they are in control of their work and their work environment.  At the high end of the scale they will be able to handle lots of things at the same time.  At the other end they may only be comfortable handling one thing at a time. This scale is furthermore broken down into two sub-scales referred to as:
Control (Emotion)
Individuals scoring high on this scale are better able to control their emotions and better able to keep anxieties in check.
Control (Life)
Individuals scoring high on this scale are more likely to believe that they control their lives.  They feel that they can make a difference.


Sometimes called change orientation, this describes the extent to which individuals see problems as opportunities.  At one end of the scale we find those who thrive in continually changing environments.  At the other end we find those who prefer to minimize their exposure to change and the problems that come with that.
Risk Orientation
Individuals who score high enjoy variety and thrive on change and challenges.  They have a sense of drive, don’t enjoy routine, love problem solving ideas.  They may be competitive and may at times take on too much.
Learning Orientation
Individuals who score high on this scale love learning and developing.  They see the positive in all outcomes – regardless whether they are good or bad.  They are keen to apply what is learnt and will try things again in a new situation.  Very inspirational and require no validation from others.


Sometimes described as “stickability” this describes the ability for an individual to carry out tasks successfully despite any problems or obstacles which arise whilst achieving their goals.  Consequently an individual who scores at the high end of the scale will be able to handle and achieve things to tough unyielding deadlines.
Goal Orientation
Individuals scoring high on this scale are good at visualising goals.  They enjoy planning and setting targets.  They are not afraid of judgement and thrive on measuring their own attainment levels.  They may struggle to prioritise and over-commit, taking on too much responsibility.
Achievement Orientation
Individuals scoring high on this scale excel at achieving goals.  They have a sense of purpose, they are conscientious, tenacious and love celebrating their success.  They many over work and become fatigued at times and sometimes feel taken advantage of by others who are not as driven.


Individuals who are high in confidence have the self-belief to successfully complete tasks, which may be considered too difficult by individuals with similar abilities but with lower confidence.  At the other end of the scale individuals will be unsettled by setbacks and will feel undermined by these.
Confidence  in their Abilities
Individuals scoring highly on this scale are more likely to believe that they are truly worthwhile
Interpersonal Confidence 
Individuals scoring highly on this scale tend to be more assertive.  They are less likely to be intimidated in social settings and are more likely to cope with difficult or awkward people
