SCORING AND INTERPRETING FIRO-B

Scoring FIRO-B

FIRO-B comes in two forms, self-scoring and questionnaire only. If you have the self-scoring form, you can follow the instructions on the instrument to generate your scores. If you have the questionnaire only, you will have to send your answers to Consulting Psychologists Press in Palo Alto, California, to be scored. Test booklets are available to qualified administrators from CPP. Once you have calculated your scores, you may read on to learn how to interpret your scores.

What is FIRO-B?

FIRO-B, Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation - Behavior, is a questionnaire designed by Will Shutz, formerly of Stanford University, distributed by Consulting Psychologists Press of Palo Alto, California. FIRO-B measures a person's self-perception of how they characteristically relate to other people. In addition to giving information about how individuals see themselves behaving in interpersonal relationships, the instrument can also be used to facilitate effectiveness in those relation­ships. For this reason, FIRO-B has been used widely in a variety of settings including the study of individual personality dynamics, sensitivity training, marriage counseling, personnel selection and assignment, team building, and significantly, managerial relationships.
