IDS Announces Upcoming Changes in RMP Reports


I want to share with our customers information about changes we are making in Reiss Motivation Profile® (RMP) reports – changes that are a part of our continued effort to maintain a high standard of excellence for the RMP.
 
We have decided to revert to the original scale names of Honor and Independence for the RMP for Business and the RMP for Sports.  Currently, these two applications of the Reiss Motivation Profile® use different terms for the Honor and Independence scales.  Instead of the term Honor, the scale is called Expedience and is reverse scored.  An individual who normally would receive a low score on the need for Honor is told instead that he has a strong need for Expedience.  Similarly, instead of the term Independence, the scale is called Interdependence and is reverse scored.  An individual who normally would receive a low score for Independence is told instead that he has a strong need for Interdependence. 
 
As a result of this change, all applications of the Reiss Motivation Profile® – Self-Discovery, Business, Sports, School, and Relationship – will use the same scale names originally devised by Professor Steven Reiss.  We believe this will reduce confusion for clients because all reports will use the same terminology as that found in Professor Reiss’s writings.
 
In conjunction with this change, we plan to add to the reports explanations for the average desires.  Currently, a client’s report includes an interpretation for each finding of a strong or weak need.  When the client scores as having an average need for some of the desires, he or she receives no explanation for these findings.  Although average needs are relatively easy to satisfy, frustration can occur if the individual is stretched too far in one direction or another.  Thus, we have decided to include an explanation for each of a client’s average needs.  Click here to read a sample explanation.
 
These two changes – using the original scale names of Honor and Independence for all applications of the Reiss Motivation Profile®, and adding explanations for clients’ average desires – will be implemented on June 4th.  I am confident these changes will improve a client’s experience with the RMP by reducing the possibility for confusion and by enhancing a client’s understanding of his motivational profile.
